    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Full time comes with full amenities of the club, including membership, discounts on spa products, store products, etc,. Management and trainers are professional and work together with the staff to make your days easier.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great because you do have to deal with a lot of customers who expect everything for the amount of money they pay, but it isn't difficult to handle them as long as you are good with people.

    Advice to Management

    Help FD staff deal with members who are unruly or at least have a system in place to help them navigate it.

    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time

    Pros

    Using the gym for free Using amenities for free Team building Teach you alot of what you need to know to train the equinox way

    Cons

    They show you trajectory to meet your goals and how much you could make but don't lay the building blocks of cold calling to make sufficient money. You make as much as the front desk and everyone else as your base and then all of client acquisition is on you. Their help is giving you more leads.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest that you don't make money unless you're full time. I spent more money getting to my 5 am shift than I did at eqx

    Former Employee - Licensed Massage Therapist in New York, NY

    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Seriously, it all depends on the management. The management at my spa location were generally laid back and really nice people. I liked working there. They let you do what YOU do as a therapist, which is refreshing for a corporate company. And the tips were great at the location I was at bc it was a wealthy area, so it made the job worth it. It’s all about the location and managers; that determines whether you’ll...

    Cons

    -Unless you’re full-time (which would be a lot for a therapist), the part-time benefits aren’t great. -BODY LAB 360. The worst corporate joke on both therapists and clients. I don’t know a single therapist who felt it was helpful/liked it. The spa was also SO much better before it was renamed “The body lab” and these complimentary Body Lab 350s became required...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the Body Lab 360. The spa was wonderful as it was... “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”
