      Great Culture. Not a whole lot of Flexibility

      Pros

      Amazing work culture, fun/cool atmosphere, free membership, relatively stress-free.

      Cons

      This company is not flexible with PTO/travel. If you're full time you only get 10 days your first two years. Very in office ('in club') culture - you could do some elements of your job from home for sure, but they would never allow it. If you don't live near family, it's pretty restrictive as all your vacation days are spent over your thanksgiving and winter holiday.

      Company willing to work with you

      Pros

      The company could have gotten rid of my whole team during the pandemic, but chose to keep us on and pivot us to a different department until our clubs were able to open. The insured is that we were taken care of throughout the pandemic.

      Cons

      Sometimes it’s hard to connect with management as they are in a different city.

      Great Place To Work If You Are Passionate About Fitness & Good At Sales

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Great education. Great place to start a career in fitness. Better earning potential than most fitness companies. Lots of room for career growth especially in the first 2-5 years.

      Cons

      Long hours, need to do a lot of volume of training sessions to get paid well as a trainer. Goals are very aggressive for management. High turnover as not everyone has what it takes to be successful here.

      Lots of growth

      Pros

      Promote within if you are hard working. I had a great GM that helped move me up but due to covid I was put on furlough then brought back in as an LMT again.

      Cons

      Sometimes it can be slow before covid we had to be visible and promote the spa. The company should put more effort into spa promotion because it felt like it was on us more which was hard at first until you got used to it.
