Retail Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 9, 2014
Pros: fun people to work with
Cons: slow
I worked part time at the retail department, it was fun but the job was slow and the store didn't make enough money. I learned how to make orders for the store and how to make a customer feel welcomed. The management was different from any other that I've had before. The hardest part of the job was when on a busy day when the store would be full of customers and I was the only one working.

My Favorite Job in all my Career
Operations Manager (Former Employee), West Covina, CAMay 3, 2014
Pros: knowledge gained, friendships gained and management skills in operations, as well as experience in sales and fitness in general.
Cons: i had just received my grant for health care right before we closed, wasn't so great but i realized starting over is a part of life
A typical day at work there was always fun, we were a tight knit fitness family who actually did well in sales but still kept the love for fitness alive. I learned everything there in terms of fitness and I loved my co workers very much. Some of us though we were forced to move on, are still very close friends to this day. The hardest part of my job was taking on failing clubs, however, it is also what helped me to promote myself quickly because I took clubs that were at 60% back to well over 100% very quickly. It was very hard to let go because I feel as though I was only going up, I was just on the verge of another promotion when the acquisition happened and that was tough but I learned a lot about putting pride to the side and proving to people even if you get knocked down you can get back up again at entry level and sky rocket to higher places if that's what you truly want. Dedication and drive are key and I learned that there.

Fitness Coach/ Sales Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, ArizonaMay 2, 2014
Loved this company. They offered many perks and cared for the well being of their employees. I learned a lot about business and sales. The hardest part was adjusting from sales to assistant manager. The assignments were a lot different but overall a rewarding experience.

Sales Representative (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 18, 2014
This job is great for anyone who can enjoy living a healthy life and promote others to join them along the journey. I learned a lot at this job, not only about myself. I got to help people change their lives through fitness. The hardest part of the job is watching people quit on themselves before they reach their goals. Management was very helpful and extremely understanding. I would recommend this job to anyone who is passionate about fitness.

Wonderful job and manager! However the company was beginning to fall apart when I started and eventually went bankrupt and I was laid off. Thus they had no employee programs.
