    Promotes from within, I felt like a family. Got to use the facility which was awesome. Managers were really helpful and listened to my needs and suggestions. Give CEU money credits.

    Cons

    My club was so slow. They had us promote the spa ourselves which was annoying at times. When I moved clubs I saw a difference that I liked better.
