    I worked at Fitness 19 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no good things about this gym. Terrible pay, terrible management and very misleading to members who are joining. Anything to get the sale!!!

    Cons

    Will do anything to sell memberships. Very misleading do not join!

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful and have respect for your members. It's not just about the money people are there to change their lives and feel better. Don't mislead people just to sell memberships!

    I worked at Fitness 19 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They give you total autonomy to run your PT business out of their gym. Generally they listen to ideas to improve the gym training or atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is a place riddles with drama and everyone is in everyone else's business. The pay scale is awful as well. If your good at your job I recommend negotiating a better pay percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of everyone's personal affairs and run your business like a business

    Pros

    The original founders were great and held an invested interest in the success of the clubs, and their employees.

    Cons

    New decision makers are killing the company by not giving the clubs a fighting chance to compete in todays market. They don't take any responsibility for who works for them or who can manage locations.

    Advice to Management

    Planet Fitness and others are demolishing Fitness 19 because they are organizations, and act with each other in mind. F19 is nothing more than fitness centers being run by puppets. The company has lost itself and has no identity.
