    I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Equinox is a great place to start a career in fitness. There is a lot of room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Once you start working here, you can never go back to working out at a regular gym. They don't compare in cleanliness or member experience. Equinox is the best!

    Pros

    free gym membership, sales training experience in NY, Chris Usiak national sales manager might be one of the most influencial people ive ever met.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Salespeople working there for years choose the leads that belong to them usually claiming anyone who has ever been there. Longtime employees usually know the loopholes to trick new employees/ steal sales/ steal leads that often lead to dissatisfaction with our actual jobs and the resolution usually turns out bad because the management usually sides with the person who's making the sales.
