Ballys was a fun place to work in
Personal Training Director Bally Total Fitness (Former Employee), Coral GablesAugust 30, 2013
Pros: fun

Working at Bally was a blessing. I learned how to sell, market and network. I held several positions at Bally Total Fitness and managed all section except the General Manager Position. The hardest part of the job was the long hours and working on all holidays except for Christmas.

It was a home away from home.
Receptionist, daycare attndt., and sales (Former Employee), Crestwood, MOAugust 27, 2013
Pros: free membership, great benefits, wonderful customers/members, close to home
Cons: open every holiday except christmas
Working for Bally Total Fitness for 6 1/2 years, were the best years of my life! As a receptionist, I got to know all the members so well, they felt like family to me. They came to me about issues they had with their memberships, a machine they didn't know how to use, putting their trust in me on getting the job done, and I always did!

This job taught – more... me a lot through the years. There were some trying times that tested my patience. However, I learned I could handle more than I thought I could, under pressure, and stressful times.

I had been through quite a few managers, and each one has stood out in my mind, by helping me grow and learn in the business.

If it wasn't for the fact that my location had to close it's doors, I would most likely still be working there today! – less
