Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – July 12, 2012
Typical day at Fitness 19 consist of doing the day work from the day before ei. handling of money from membership sales, personal training sales, and any other items sold. Checking bank account for any items charged and correlate them with Quickbooks. Setting a plan of attack for that particular day ei. how many appointments need to be set, how many sales need to be made, as well as personal training. Making sure all parts of the gym are clean and presentable to all members. Depending on the day of the month i handled all the member billing, payroll, and reconciliation of the books. Handling any member concerns as quickly as possible. Making the schedules a week in advance. My team was a very strong oriented team to help the club reach its goals monthly. The hardest part was time management to make sure all my tasks were done on a timely manner and as efficient as possible. The most enjoyable part was making relations with my members and seeing them change their lives day by day and being their motivator that kept them going
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – July 4, 2016
This job was very minimal, I had very little hours and wasn't made to do much for this job. Pay wasn't very good but considering what I had to do for the job it is considerably not bad. I learned a new system and spoke to members abut their accounts . My co workers were okay and management was okay too.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Buena Park, CA – July 2, 2016
A typical day at fitness 19 consisted of meeting and speaking with dozens of new club members. I learned how to speak and communicate very thouroughly with people around me at fitness 19 whether it be a potential member or a co-worker. My co-workers were all very nice and fun people to work with. They were my employees but i did treat them like friends to an appropriate extent. The hardest part on the job was having to sometimes open the club and then close the club all in one day meaning having to work a 12 hour shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work in a such an enviroment that i enjoyed so much.
Manager/Club Operator (Current Employee) – California – June 2, 2016
At Fitness 19, I learned that I can push myself to do so much more than I thought I could. I had always said "I don't like sales and I won't do sales", well that lasted all of about 10 seconds. I live, eat, and breath sales. From being a personal trainer and selling my own training packages; to now, as a manager, needing to maximize each opportunity that presents itself.
General Manager (GM) (Current Employee) – Coon Rapids, MN – May 10, 2016
Being the GM was rewarding when the club is doing good and growing. The team here was fun and energetic. I trained in all of the staff very well which helped the club strive over the others. The hardest part was rolling with the constant change in the company. The most enjoyable was our staff and members, we had great customer service which in turn lead to great members, and relationships with the members.
Sales (Former Employee) – Parma, OH – April 2, 2016
A typical day at work was cleaning,answering phones, telemarketing. I learned that promoting sales is harder than it looks. Management was unorganized. My co-workers were very nice and understanding. The hardest part of the job was to promote sales to people who have already canceled their membership and promoting sales to random numbers we called. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting all of the people and made it a nice working environment.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Westminster, CO – March 11, 2016
Too much stress and work but not enough pay. The management puts all the work on the shoulders of the lower guys and the lower guys make bad money while management rolls in the dough. Also threatens to withhold paychecks if certain things are not met.

Personal Trainer/Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Lexington-Fayette, KY – February 11, 2016
Fitness 19 is an excellent place to be employed at. As a personal trainer for this company you will get paid a very nice wage, much better than most gyms are willing to pay to non independent trainers. (50% for most trainers of what the clients pay for their sessions) The boss is very laid back and stays out of your way when it comes to training your clients. As long as the clients are happy and keep purchasing your services you'll nearly ever even know he works there. The head trainer is very knowledgeable of training and is a better than average salesman, so he will almost always have clients ready to dish out to the staff of trainers that need holes in their schedules filled. The front desk/membership sales staff are very friendly and will do just about anything to accommodate the members and prospective members.
Free gym membership, meeting new people every day, excellent pay, laid back boss, freedom to be creative with exercise programming, excellent head trainer.
Club Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 4, 2016
Fitness 19 is a very friendly gym. The employees are always in a good mood and always help people who need questions answered, as well as the manager, she is always understanding with any issues. The hardest part of the job was when a customer was unsatisfied and there wasn't much you could do to help. This job thought me how to better my communication skills as well as learn more about billing. The best part was opening in the mornings.
Sales / Customer service manager (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – November 5, 2015
It started out as a good place to work in which they promised you room for growth but as other gyms came into the area that ended quickly. Company seemed to play favorites with employees, instead of going off numbers and productivity.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Citrus Heights, CA – June 26, 2015
I consulted gym members and clients on proper fitness so they could get the most out of their gym membership. I trained clients on proper exercise and nutrition. I help them meet their health and fitness goals. The hardest part of the position was sales in that I had to convince people that they needed me to train them to get excellent results. Management was great 99% of the time and co-workers were great too. The best part of working at Fitness 19 was the environment of a health club and the people there were all trying to improve.
