      Pros

      Amazing teams, GREAT PEOPLE, great product, nice facilities, lots of Diversity. Salaried managers can make decent income, but not the best.

      Cons

      No work life balance. Fitness industry has been highly affected by the pandemic. No room for growth after GM/Director level. Company culture is lacking direction. Prices keep going up hard to justify to clients. Open 365 days a year, zero holidays but you are paid. Hourly staff paid minimum.
