    I worked at Fitness First full-time

    Pros

    Working with the best team of Positive and motivated people. Working as a membership consultant is very rewarding in terms of helping people improve their lives by helping them on their health and fitness. You can meet a lot of people who are open minded, professional with different race and culture, it is a mix of everything which something that I like and look forward to every day.

    Cons

    Working with a Manager who is not a people person and selfish that's the only thing that made me decide to leave the company. Not saying in general but this refers to two people that I worked with. I feel bad leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    They should check on their staff that sends them issues regarding how their managers treat them cause sometimes it's a valid concern and needs their attention.
