    Pros

    They have a recognizable name in the fitness industry. You can usually make a schedule that allows you to have time for a life as well.

    Cons

    There seems to be a revolving door in the management positions. This can make it difficult to get help because the people in charge are continually get acclimated to their jobs and then for various reasons they are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Try and be consistent with all of your employees. Also please do not speak to employees about your opinions of other people that work with them.

    Pros

    Many locations thought New York city

    Cons

    Treat employees poorly, difficult to be paid for trained sessions

    Advice to Management

    the sports clubs suffer from being overly micro-managed. Personal training should not be thought of as a product, but a service. More attention should be placed on rewarding members who have supported the gym for years, as opposed to rewarding new members.

    Pros

    Good compensation, no pay cap, free gym membership, family oriented staff. Decent discounts on a lot of certifications. Great place to build up clientele and be creative with your Personal Training style.

    Cons

    Management changes way too much and is overworked. Corporate will try to steal every nickel and dime from you. Seriously need a better way of compensating PT, a very flawed system that points the finger and punishes the trainers. Never any sale incentives for PT to push. You are on your own in terms of getting clients. Members always leave with a bad taste in their mouths with any billing concerns or customer appreciation because corporate ties everyone's hand and hangs them by a noose.
