A typical day at work consists of greeting members, folding towels, keeping the gym clean, check out customers purchases and keep items stocked.
24 hour fitness was my first job when I moved to MD from WI; it helped me feel at home and create friendships and connections with everyone that walked in and out of that gym. Never underestimate what you can learn from anyone.
The management was great, they treated everyone fairly when it came down to it. From time to time they definitely showed favoritism and would occasionally be more lenient with some people.
All of the coworkers were really nice and inviting helping me acclimate to the annapolis area and including me in workouts and other things.
The most difficult part of the job was trying to keep up with the ever increasing towel consumption. Employees would try to collect dirty towels, wash, fold, and stock when ever we were available to do so without leaving the front desk unattended. But especially around the 5 o'clock gym rush it became a race that was always kind of fun.
The most enjoyable part of my job was getting closer to the personal trainers and being able to see how they can change lives for those that are willing to change and work hard. It was also enjoyable to see that even I played a role in changing people; by being a friendly service representative I was able to help connect a lot of members to other people I have become friends with.
