    I worked at Xperience Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You CAN make a lot of money.
    The clients are awesome.
    You make the money you work for.

    Cons

    Shadiest schemers I have ever met, let alone worked for.
    I felt bad for the people walking in the door, knowing what they are in for.
    If you want to make the money that they advertise you can make, you better be prepared to work 50-60 hour work weeks.
    Once the members figured out your horrible sales pitches, they resent you for it.
    I felt fake the entire time I was working there. Personally, I care more about the client and their needs than making a sale....they don't. $$$$$$$ is their only motive and by they I mean all employees that fully buy into their crap.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the members/clients for 2 seconds instead of your bank account. Money is important, but so is your rep.

    I have been working at Xperience Fitness full-time

    Pros

    If people are there to greet, they have nice smiles

    Cons

    Unorganized Management, They don't care about other people besides their sale. Absolutely no communication.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people paying for their memberships. Without them, you have nothing. Get organized. Learn to communicate.

    Pros

    Members are great! casual uniform. long breaks to be able to workout.

    Cons

    long hours. no advancement opportunities for females. disorganized upper management. upper management doesn't care about staff working conditions. no annual reviews.

    Advice to Management

    focus more on club staff they are the heart of your business. different sales tactics - calling someone 14 times isn't going to make them wanna join...

    I worked at Xperience Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great potential to make the money you want. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management can be a little overbearing. They also are VERY misleading about the money you will be making. Many trainers were told they would be making $15+ per hour after the first few weeks, when in reality you're there for 10-12 hours and only getting paid for 6-7 of them depending on how many clients you are given.

    I have been working at Xperience Fitness (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Besides the free gym membership you get very good pay for little to no experience. The GM or AGM will teach you anything you need to know and how to grow in the company.

    Cons

    The hours are not as flexible as I would like them to be (I'm in college). It's sales so it depends on the person, it's pretty easy selling memberships.
