    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, great clients, respect of everyone in the gym, the potential for lots of friends and connections, make own hours within reason, good pay if you do enough sessions per month.

    Cons

    Lack of proper upper management to sell PT, company expects you to be an awesome trainer and do all your own selling which is unrealistic. If you are a trainer you shouldn't need to be a pro salesman. No pressure to get things done on time such as fix machines. Horrible computer software and system overall. Budgets restrict management's abilities to make the clubs very nice and keep them updated.

    Advice to Management

    Raise budget to allow all necessary equipment in the club, such as proper number of barbells. When you have 10 stations that require a barbell in your club and you only have 5 barbells and an equipment budget of $250 a month, you're going to have a bad club!

    Pros

    Free gym. You can go to any of their gym for free.

    Cons

    Low pay. Now they have changed the system on how sales consultants earn their commission, making it much harder to reach sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    Please compensate your worker so they are motivated and excel in their job.

    Pros

    I love what I do- we have such a friendly staff that it's more like a family. Love my members as well.

    Cons

    Don't pay enough. As a manager you can't do what it needs to be done due to the budge of the club.

    Advice to Management

    Be there for the needs of members and employees as well

    Pros

    Great way to interact with people and give your employees an opportunity to thrive and make a living and you can make your particular gym a fun environment to work

    Cons

    Too much change in the direction of the company leaves you looking for an identity that isnt apparent. Also look for Corporate support else where


  9. "Front Desk "Welcome Team" - great way to meet people"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values

    • Comp & Benefits

    Pros

    - free membership
    - 50% discount on personal training
    - scheduling flexibility
    - great way to meet people (likeminded ones if you're into fitness)

    Cons

    - you need a thick skin since you often get the brunt of member dissatisfaction for things out of your control
    - low pay; minimum wage is inadequate for what's expected at the front desk since you're not just there to scan people in
    - politics as usual even in a gym; managers usually have favorites and if the managers are male, usually females
    - difficulty and gym member blowback in enforcing policies when other front desk personnel don't

    Advice to Management

    - increase pay to incentivize front desk workers to be more diligent and enforce policies that while profitable to the club make members angry with front desk workers (i.e. charging for towels, charging guest fees, catching non-members using family members' barcodes, giving verbal past due account reminders).
