    Pros

    Front desk checks in all members so group fitness instructors can focus on teaching! Free membership for employees. Paid sick hours.

    Cons

    Some members do not have proper gym and/or class etiquette. In-Shape could post more signs and verbal reminders of what’s acceptable behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Management is supportive and communicative.

    A LOT of nepotism happening at club 60(rancho solano), not getting enough hours(bad scheduling due to nepotism)

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire MULTIPLE people from the same family and put one of those people in charge of the schedule, makes for some people(family members) getting great schedules and other employees not

    Pros

    Free membership but that's it.

    Cons

    they don't care about the employee, they're the cheapest company I've ever worked for, the management plays favoritism and will only promote their friends, and the pay sucks. Not worth it.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time

    Pros

    Amazing General Manager, good population of clientele, and fairly good quality gym

    Cons

    Everything higher up from General Manager doesn't care about you, human resources suck, strongly money driven, half the staff doesn't know anything about physiology, and pure quality of atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    put more care into your training staff, dont shoot yourself in the foot and hire people that can sell stuff versus people that know what there doing. You can only sell so much until people start talking about how they aren't getting results but spent all this money on training.

    Pros

    There is no Pros for this job.

    Cons

    Very poor pay.
    Personal trainers have to clock in and out in between clients.
    If you have a 2-hour gap between clients then you have no choice but to stay there and wait to clock back in or go home and go back 2 hours later.

    Pros

    Paid CPR Training, free gym membership, and lots of classes if you want them. Kimmy was great to work with. Audition was straight forward.

    Cons

    Time clock system was complicated and took too long for logging hours. Some of teachers were old fashioned and would complain about tech updates.

    Advice to Management

    None. Thank you for the opportunity to work there.
