    Pros

    Hourly pay i guess? Free membership? Im only writing this because i need to have something in this section

    I worked at Healthworks Fitness Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team members, friendly members, good managers and beautiful facilities.

    Cons

    No transparency in how well / poorly company is doing, extremely high goals and expectation to work long, stressful hours to reach them. No employee feedback or manager feedback to improve on situations. No opportunity for professional growth, raise or promotion no matter your position or how well you exceed in it. Very high turnover rate and for roles that are commission based there is a much higher promise in the offer packet than is ever really achieved. No position is safe and no person is safe from company politics and agenda change.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees who love and are passionabte about working at your company. It's hard to find loyal employees in a place with such high turnover, so when you do treat them well. Listen to the individuals who have been there the longest and seen all the ups and downs because if they feel valued, protected and empowered they can probably offer some great insight or suggestion for helping to see the business succeed.


  6. "Personal Trainer (less than a year)"

    I worked at Healthworks Fitness Centers full-time

    Pros

    A great place to start off as a personal trainer. The company provides tons of training and on boarding, getting you up to date on everything you need to know to be a great trainer including movement assessments and weekly meetings for new trainers.

    Cons

    The $15/hr salary before you hit 60 training hours in a month. Although it's above minimum wage it's really hard to live off this and you have to be really dedicated to work to start making some real money. Which doesn't provide for great work/life balance at first.

    Advice to Management

    Give trainers a $15/hr + trainer pay for each session.

    I worked at Healthworks Fitness Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Healthworks was my first sales job and it was a great experience! Be ready to take initiative and hit the groud running. Management makes sure to develop a close relationship. Truly felt supported by my direct manager. You're valued as an individual.

    Cons

    The nature of the job can be taxing over time. You have to work weekends and around holidays.

    Thanks for the review. I understand how taxing it can be to support an operation that runs 7 days a week and appreciate everyone's effort to make our clubs a great experience for our members.
