Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at 24 Hour Fitness?

Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?

What is a typical day in the life of an employee at 24 Hour Fitness?

The employees at 24 hour fitness wear personalized fitness clothes. Trainers wear shirts with personal trainer embroidered on the back and the 24 hr logo on the front with black work out pants. its pretty casual but very professional looking and business appropriate.

I don't work at 24 hour fitness, but am currently finishing up my studying to get certified and work at 24. So, I've been doing some research and a friend who works at a 24 in Sacramento recently just got a job there.

He's not certified and isn't pursuing a degree in exercise or any related field. He just works out a lot and knows his stuff. The hiring manager offered him a job and sent him home with a CD/DVD. It took hime about a day or two to watch, study and take notes. Then went back and took a 50 question multiple choice test. Passed and is now a trainer.

He makes $12.50hr as a personal trainer. If he gets what I'd call a 'real certification', one that requires months of studying, not a day or two, he told me you get a $6hr raise. You also get an additional raise on each additional certification, but obviously there's a cap and it goes on case by case situation.

Also, he mentioned you get commission on all the supplements/gear you help sell.

Hope that helps anyone else looking. Just walk up and ask, that's what I did before...most trainers and managers were cool with me when I was inquiring and stating that I was interested and studying for the job.

Update!

I work for a different fitness studio and am glad I never tried to work at 24hr. They are very pushy about sales. You're supposed to walk around and tell people they don't know what they're doing, offer them help and then sell sell sell personal training. When you're in the back rooms or alone with the trainers / sales or...'member specialists', they pretty much have their job on the line to sell you training. They have even been told to get really personal with you, saying things like, "you're getting bigger by the day, how does your husband see you? Is he still attracted to you?"

This comes from a friend that worked there and a friend that used to be a manager there, he only worked there for about 3 weeks before he said enough was enough. I'd stay away from 24hr. They don't pay that good and they are annoying about meeting sales goals.

I have worked out at 24 Hour Fitness since it opened in my area; I have worked there for 3 and a half years. In the last few years I have seen a lot of new management come through. Your experience is simply going to depend on who is managing the place. While some have been more pushy with the "sales" side, others have been very impressed by how much I have changed my clients lives. For every extremely negative situation there is guaranteed to be an extremely positive experience with the company. Overall I believe 24 hour fitness is focused on changing peoples lives for the better.

You have no idea what you are talking about. First off, 24 hour fitness does not hire trainers without PT certs as personal trainers. Other positions yes, but not personal trainers. Second off, the pay you mentioned, even for your area is way off. Lastly, 24 Hour fitness is a great place to have a career at. I have been working for 24 hour fitness for 4 years and my career has advanced and has grown with all of the opportunities they have to offer. The people who do not succeed are those who are not strong enough to make it in the fitness corporate industry. Another bit of advice is that you really shouldn't be given you opinion on a place you have never worked at. Your giving your input about a place that you have never worked at and spreading rumors that are far from the truth.
