Mangers were difficult to work for and did not make it a good work environment for many

Learning how to be more personal as to help new customers get to their personal goals.
Mangers were awful and forced an unjust schedule on me.
Excellent company which created bonds with clientele.
Front Desk Attendant (Former Employee) – High Point, North Carolina – June 25, 2015
A typical day at work included selling supplements to clientele while keeping the facility clean and answering the phone while signing people for memberships. I learned excellent customer service and communication skills while displaying leadership and customer service in front of clients and co-workers. Management was very friendly and worked with all schedules. The co-workers displayed positive attitudes. The hardest part of the job was dealing with different people on different occasions. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with different clients and helping them to become more healthy.

Core Team Leader and Instructor (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – March 30, 2015
A typical day looks a little like this: I help individuals reach their long and short term goals. I am their cheerleader, the one person that tells them they are great. I help groups and individuals that attend my training sessions feel their best, mentally and physically.
I have learned how to time management. How I can make a real difference in other lives. How juggle more than one job at a time.
There is little to know management.
I work independently.
The hardest part is being fully engaged with groups or individuals after having long day.
The most enjoyable is to see people reach their personal goal.
Typical work day consists of daily administrative duties of the fitness dept, consulting with members/prospective members on exercise programs, fitness & sales staff training and development, servicing personal training sessions, exercise program design/review. The RUSH was a great company to work for over 9 years.
I absolutely LOVED working for The Rush Fitness Complex!
Regional Vice President (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – August 13, 2014
I had the pleasure to work with the leadership team of The Rush from January 2001 until the company sold to Gold's Gym International August 2014. I learned so much by working closely with ownership and executive leaders over the years about vision, sales, leadership, mentoring team members, developing teams and becoming irreplaceable by becoming replaceable (duplicating future leaders/managers). My servant-style leadership approach allowed me to work "for" an incredible group of passionate, driven, relentless, goal-oriented employees and I would not trade that experience for anything!
I was at the rush for 3 years and experienced more changes than in my last 10 years of working. The executive management team expects the rush to be your #1 priority and be there from sun up to sun down everyday. If you have a family... forget it! They don't make it possible to have family time. Their pay is not worth the work. It's a fun place to work but that's because club management tries to make the best of a bad situation.
Front Desk Leader (Current Employee) – Cleveland, TN – May 20, 2014
The Rush is a good part time job, my co-workers are very friendly and we get along well. This job has definitely taught me how to work with people well and how to handle tough situations with customers. It has taught me a lot of people skills that I will be able to use for future employment.
These people executive level management included are a bunch of cons. Do not fall for the lies of great potential, etc. They are liars. They lie to employees and to members and are only concerned about the almighty dollar. There are long term employees who bring these concerns forward who are ignored and are eventually weeded out.
Upper management, deception, not a team atmosphere.
