    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teaching the classes
    Working out with the members and building relationships with members who will come to your classes every week, follow you to different clubs, and show you their progress.
    The group fitness team- other instructors are really supportive and will come to each other's classes, practice new choreography, etc
    Easy hire process
    Fun
    Large sub network so your class can easily be covered if you're sick or something comes up
    Flexibility

    Cons

    Scheduling- when a class becomes popular, instead of offering it another night because there is interest, they schedule a competing class at the same time, and you end up with two semi- full classes with less energy, instead of 2 nights of high energy, popular classes.

    Equipment intensive classes will be scheduled back to back when it's impossible to put everything away/ get everything out on time, and you're the one apologizing to the members every week "Sorry, they should be out any minute. "
    Maintenance can take a long time- broken microphones, always out of batteries, missing locks
    No designated place to log your hours, so after class, you check all of the computers, which are either being used or are signed out with a password you don't know, and you wait until they finish with clients. It's always an inconvenience. Plus, the amount of boxes you need to fill in is ridiculous for a 1 hour class (why do I need to fill in 3 rows of code 0? Why do we need to enter set up and clean up codes when that could be automatically filled in because everyone does that? If they didn't, they would just enter 0 in the time columns anyway. I should be able to input the same 1 row of pertinent information that used to be in the binder
    Unchanged pay, even with a degree, multiple authorizations, experience, etc, you'll make the same as a new trainer who doesn't even hold a basic national accreditation yet
