    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time

    Pros

    I had a really good experience with Equinox. I worked in a great team, with a great manager and GM. I learned the ropes of working in the luxury fitness and spa industry. It taught me how to deliver excellent customer service to high-end clientele and go the extra mile.

    Pros: Free gym membership, discounts and working in a fun team.

    Cons

    Pay is usually average or below average for entry-level positions.

    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time

    Pros

    You have to really work hard in order to become a full time trainer. A lot of time dedicated to the club with long days in order to gain clients, but the payoff is great once you get there. Education is unmatched.

    Cons

    The members within this environment aren’t always the most nice/polite because of their status and tend to look at you as lesser than they are.

    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Forward moving company with cool image and all the bells and whistles.

    Cons

    You will be on salary and work insanely long days without any appreciation from corporate. They waltz in and tell you there’s too much dust on a light bulb or wonder why the music is too low and they have no idea of how busy we are or what we go through on a daily basis. There is a major disconnect and you are not supported the way you should be.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your staff and especially your managers. Offer perks. Don’t keep AGM’s sitting around for closeout when they don’t have anything to do and no incentive.

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you use it to its potential. Members also are a lot of fun. You work at a place filled with beautiful looking people all health and self conscious.

    Cons

    The pay is difficult to live from. Expectations in relation to salary hold a gap. We all have jobs so we can live and pay our bills. We are motivated when our lives outside of work has no challenges; if you are trying to survive this is not an easy place to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Each club is different. Don’t believe in the gossip and even if your staff are not fans of you still try and get to know them. Sometimes being authentic has more positive outcomes then negative.
