      I worked at Steve Nash Fitness World full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Engage with members and change lives. Can be a fun environment. Some great leaders.

      Cons

      Terrible culture. The good leaders are bullied out. No autonomy in getting the job done. Micro managed on a purely numbers scenario. Turnover is ridiculous! VP ‘s and above talk really badly to the staff. Disgusting.

      Advice to Management

      Value your employees. Stop treating members like they are just numbers. Learn to talk to people in a respectable manner. Lawsuits waiting to happen.

      I have been working at Steve Nash Fitness World full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      -Free gym membership -coworkers can be great -good community depending on location

      Cons

      -ridiculously low compensation plans -toxic, narcissistic head management -long hours with no minimum pay/classes -extreme pressure to sell at the expense of your personal reputation and relationship with the clientele -Cuts class hours arbitrarily, and told to “save” members when they show up pissed

      Advice to Management

      If you can afford to send people to hawaii and vegas, you can afford to at least pay your coaches a decent wage. Maybe ask why your staff turnover is so high, and instead of blaming them for “not trying hard enough” or “not being team players”, listen to the criticism they give you, which frankly head management has proven incapable of doing. Anything more and I would be wasting my time typing.

      Pros

      Free Gym Membership and you sometimes get to go out into the community.

      Cons

      Unrealistic expectations for lead generation and sales and constantly increasing so you never reach your targets and therefore do not see expected commissions.

      Advice to Management

      Poor management starts at the top. Corporate managers lead from behind with a wip and it transfers to reactionary management at the bottom.
