      It’s a love/hate relationship

      Pros

      Hands down best gym in the country, the vision the company is going for will make this the best gym to be apart of, if you are in the gym industry and that’s where you want to stay, this is the Mecca.

      Cons

      It’s like high school, so much drama, lots of gossiping, and almost like a cult you’re apart of. Once you are out of it you don’t realize what you were in. It’s like a weird addiction.

      Pros

      Short shifts, easy rotations. All depends on who you are working with.

      Amazing Company but LOW salary for level of work

      Apr 5, 2021 - Member Services Associate

      Pros

      It has an incredible team with a positive energy. They are truly committed to their mission and have a great sense of community.

      Cons

      The work is very demanding and the position has A LOT of responsibilities. For the amount of work, high status of the company, level of effort expected from the team members, and honestly the cost of meeting the appearance/attire they want does not fit the salary for the position at all.
