      Pros

      Free membership 40% off training, retail, spa sessions Relaxed dress code Great people!

      Cons

      Most positions that you will make a career out of provide little to no work/life balance. At the club level you will always have to work weekends, late nights, and will have long hours. Time off and taking care of yourself is encouraged company wide, but when coming to action it is frowned upon. The only time it will be a non-issue is if your club management really believes in it themselves. It’s best to work for Equinox if you are single and don’t have familial obligations.
