Productive and fun gym and staff to work with
Personal Trainer (Former Employee), Kendall Park, NJAugust 20, 2014
Pros: flexibility, great staff
Cons: compensation, benefits, management
Typically a day would consist of a morning full of clients, an afternoon full of efforts to make sales, and a night full of group fitness classes. Starting out I had to put in a lot of free time to get into the decently successful position I was in. Management failed to play the part of fitness directors and cooperate when my staff and I made efforts – more... to implement new programs.
Working with a widely diverse clientele and respectful fun staff made up for the lack of management and financial hardships. – less

Fun place to work in
Youth Assistant (Former Employee), Algonquin, ILJuly 25, 2014
Working at Fitness 19 was a great place to work . Early morning parents would dropoff their children in the kids room while they did their daily work out. Some kids were sleepy, some over excited, but as always i organized games for us to play and we had lots of fun, some kids didnt even want to leave when the parents came to pick them up. This job – more... was very rewarding,I had a great connection, friendship with the kids. Some days were super wild,many kids running around, but the next time they would come back, they were very happy to see me again. My co-workers were all great happy people, the management was amazing. Caring people who made you feel part of a family. – less

Fitness Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Sharon, PAJune 12, 2014

Kids Room Attendant (Former Employee), San Clemente CAJanuary 29, 2014
A typical day including clocking in then cleaning facility and sanitizing equipment. When there were kids I would go to kids room and supervise activities for 2 hour sessions. Often we would also put flyers out. Management was overall friendly not very professional in some cases which was the hardest part of the job sometimes. Coworkers were very open – more... and nice so it made things easy for the new employee. – less
