    Pros

    Great facility with great members 13,000 of them, a one time practice facility for the los angeles clippers professional basketball team,

    I worked at Spectrum Athletic Clubs full-time

    Pros

    Amazing leadership team - some of the smartest people in or outside the industry.

    Cons

    Fast-paced retail nature of the industry can distract from the inherent altruistic aspects of working at a company with a mission to help people.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the brand tenets, communicate those throughout the organization carefully. Reinforce them daily.

    Pros

    Had awesome coworkers
    Was really strong in the PT department
    Had a really good on boarding program

    Cons

    If you have a bad fitness services manager, the job can be pretty tough at the beginning.

    Ensure there is a good fitness services manager, hire likeminded staff

    I worked at Spectrum Athletic Clubs full-time

    Pros

    Great Staff and Management
    Flexible hours
    Friendly and Personable Clientele
    Allowed to run your own business.

    Cons

    In terms of training for a gym of any kind I cannot say that Spectrum was any better or worse to work for because I have only worked for them. The pay was not fantastic but I doubt it ever will be when working for a large gym.

    Good people work here! Get free membership to the gym and get to workout in a nice facility!

    Company is not really growing! A bit stagnate!
    Clubs are a bit dated.
    Plans are in place for major upgrades and enhancements! It will take time but it'll be tough getting there.

    I have been working at Spectrum Athletic Clubs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like being Independent and responsible for your own business and feeling very entrepreneurial, it is a good place to start out. Very laid back easy going environment

    Cons

    No continued education provided and invested in talented personal trainers who really care about continued education. Sales are valued and rewarded more than your education or actually helping members reach their fitness goals.

    Advice to Management

    Think out of the box, never accept the status quo, invest in new approaches to fitness and education. Reward or recognize trainers who are knowledgeable and who are proactive with improving and continuing their education, the members will receive the benefit from an educated trainer and maintain and bring in new business. Don't let sales be your focus and measure of a good or valued trainer.
