      I have been working at Fitness Formula Clubs full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The level of innovation as a registered dietitian here is phenomenal. My managers have been very supportive with helping me to grow my own nutrition business. You are basically your own boss. You build your own clientele with the member base that the gym has to offer. The variety of nutrition services offered are up to what you can create, but cool things like RMR tests and VO2 tests are offered at FFC facilities. The...

      Cons

      The compensation wasn't what I expected it to be. There is a base-rate with a commission based on your gathering of clients. It's a lot of work to build your own business. The pay wasn't as promising as the idea promotes. Realistically this position is great for the experience but expansion for professional growth may be limited. Building your own business takes at least a year to establish, so this job requires patience...

      I worked at Fitness Formula Clubs full-time

      Pros

      Free Gym Membership... that’s it

      Cons

      No organization, lack of leadership, hours that are completely absurd, make you feel guilty for just working your NINE hour day. MICRO MANAGING AT ITS FINEST. They completely lie to you at point of hire. They explain to you exactly what you want to hear. Had my GM make racial and sexist comments aloud as well as be managed by intimidation.. spoke to corporate and nothing was done. Would never recommend even a gym membership...
