Does Equinox Fitness offer health insurance?

Pros

I was a GFI and absolutely loved teaching there. The members are serious, hard-working and for the most part, nice.

Cons

They yanked our health insurance a couple of years ago and the pay is really bad.

Does Equinox Fitness pay for a gym membership?

Pros

Great company culture, amazing management, fun environment, teaches you excellent customer service skills, free gym membership

Cons

The only downside for me was the pay. If I didn't enjoy the job so much and didn't utilize all the other benefits, then the pay would be no reason for me to stay

Advice to Management

Raise the pay

Does Equinox Fitness offer disability insurance?

Pros

-Continued education is a big part of your job -Managers that care and want to see you succeed and learn -The CEO that is personable and genuine -Great pay! -Great benefits! -Not many places you can make a good living being a personal trainer. This company pays top trainers 6 figures, offers 401k (and they match), HSA, FSA, short term and long term disability, life insurance, etc. Great for someone looking to make a career in the field. -Trainers once they are full time make their own schedule -Fun environment -Room for growth in the company

Cons

It can be challenging to get started if you lack grit, determination, drive, time management, professionalism, are personable, etc. But for those that are all of the above, they have no problem becoming a full time trainer and making a long term career out of it. If you are looking to train to supplement income while you focus on a different career, this isn't the company for you.

Advice to Management

Be more picky in your hiring. Don't lower the bar.

Does Equinox Fitness offer employee discounts?

Pros

You get a 40% employee discount off shop clothing 3 days a week, and 40% off personal training and spa services. You get to work in leggings and comfy clothes. Free gym membership, and if you befriend the trainers you can get some complimentary training. The work is easy for the most part. If you want more hours you to have to opportunity to cover shifts at nearby shops for extra $$.

Cons

Turnover is high so it can be difficult to get shifts covered. There is no work-life balance for any Equinox employee except maybe the maintenance crew - Equinox will become your life. You'll get texts about work from management outside of your shifts often. Breaks during your shift aren't a thing. Rules are constantly changing and are always effective immediately - if you don't immediately know about it you're to blame. If you don't hit your goal you don't get commission - but even if you do hit and get commission it's an absurdly low percentage (2-3%). Equinox tends to hire young, attractive people so there's drama in the workplace because relationships among the staff are not discouraged at any level. There are blackout hours so there's about 5-6 hours that the club is open that employees aren't allowed to work out during.

Advice to Management

Unprofessionalism comes from the top down with Equinox. Everyone is underpaid.
