    The level of clients and the networking with a wide base of people around the world. The continuing education is amazing

    The amount of time spent on sales was about 90% of the day rather than doing your actual job. Slowed down training

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

    Pros

    continuing education, discounts on massage/spa/shop, free membership

    Cons

    High stress, no time off, high pressure, fake/snooty members, too much competition between trainers leading to people stabbing each other in the back/spreading rumors.

    Advice to Management

    focus more on employee wellness/support/mental health. The entire time i worked there i just felt like a work horse being run into the ground. I'm a very intelligent and well established trainer, but the long hours, chaotic schedules, floor shifts, and lack of "me" time, forced me into a poor mental state.
