Swim Coach (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – August 3, 2018
I worked for Activewellness in Foster city. All I can say is when management sucks your willing to leave a good paying job. I miss the kids. But they hired horrible male employees who didn't like the fact I had been running the swim team for a while. It was a toxic relationship the last few months and I left. Aquatic staff that are higher up are super fake and drama filled with causing an issue. Im impressed that the facility hasn't fired them and done a clean sweep of the people in charge.
Weak on a corporate level. Not the culture for a gym environment. Very poor management.
Operations Manager, Fitness Manager (Former Employee) – Miami Beach, FL – May 6, 2017
Management and upper management did not have any loyalties to their long term dependable staff. Managers did not last long as they did not fit in with the culture of the gym. Neither did the upper management fit in with the culture. The gym was ran to please the upper management, not the staff or the members.
The gym was a fun environment with great members and staff.
Corporate Managers and GM did not belong physically or culturally in a gym environment.
Aquatics Instructor (Current Employee) – Foster City, CA – February 21, 2017
Its part time so I don't get any benefits. The hours are great and management is always willing to be flexible. Most the dumb things you deal with is from the actual members themselves. Besides having no place to stay dry when your coaching. Its great.
As an intern, I learned a lot about Corporate Wellness. On a typical day I would come in and check my emails to see if clients had any questions or wanted to sign up for a class/program, then I would organize the gym floor before lunch hour, then work on future programs, Then finally I would teach a few fitness classes. The most enjoyable part was building the relations with the members and helping in achieving their fitness goals.
