    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Two Words: Billy Goda. Best leader I have ever worked for and I learned a tremendous amount from him. If you are interested in being a personal trainer, this is the place to go. You have to be willing to put in the work and listen! Billy helps place on the right career path and gives you the tools and knowledge you need to succeed along the way. This is a great team to be a part of as you are surrounded by friendly co-workers and in a positive working environment. I would recommend the NYSC in Dobbs Ferry to any trainer that is willing to learn and put in the work.

    Cons

    Not a great source of income in the early stages, so you need to build your business right away!

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started at NYSC as a new trainer looking to find a job I enjoyed - That was 8 years ago. Now, I have fun career as a Fitness manager at a successful club in NYC. I owe great thanks to the learning & development program, and the leadership team the company has developed. Through that my careerI has grown beyond my early expectations. They really do a solid job of setting high expectations but giving you the tools to achieve them. Great team support, financially rewarding, and a quick track to management.

    Cons

    It's really up to you - If you want to be successful they will show you the way.

    Advice to Management

    Love the learning and development aspect of what we do. Keep on it!
