Good first job for college grad, that’s about it
Fitness Specialist (Former Employee) –  VirginiaFebruary 24, 2018
Good place to start, you certainly can’t make a career with this company. Very little room for growth, and compensation and benefits are worse than average. Best part was helping clients succeed, worst was cleaning and maintaining the facility. Corporate client was fantastic, easier to work with than CFW.
Pros
Working with clients, support from corporate client
Cons
Salary and benefits, shift hours, no advancement opportunities

Not willing to listen to innovative ideas
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  VAFebruary 15, 2018
This company is still in the early 90's when it comes to programming. They do not listen to individuals when it comes to trying to increase revenue. The management is also very clique-ish with the "you can't sit at our table" mentality. One high-level manager may be nice one time and then act super mean the next. Very unprofessional

Not Paid enough
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 25, 2018
Not a living wage working at this company. Some fun people to work with but this is definitely a bridge job to something else. Many get burned out and don't stay long.
Pros
Fair enough work life balance
Cons
Not paid a reasonable/living wage

Don't work here
Health Fitness Specialist (Former Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 11, 2018
Management=users, abusers, constant harassment, and liars. Unprofessional environment....Poor management. Poorly and outdated written contracts that only entitle them to hire inexperienced kids for full time with benefits. Pay is also low. I honestly feel bad for their clients for their service is not worth the money!
Pros
The Clients

Great Place to Start, Not Stay
Health Fitness Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington City, DCDecember 22, 2017
The culture at CFW is great. They are a high-quality company to work for. I worked there right out of college, but grew weary quickly. My supervisor often made me feel uncomfortable. CFW is ideal for a recent grad who is willing to work hard to gain experience. It's difficult to work for if you have other responsibilities outside of your career: a family, school, etc. CFW has the potential to be great, but your innovation will dwindle with prolonged employment. Growth and continued education is supported, but that's about it. I would recommend it as a place to work just because my experiences may not be similar to the next person's. Just be aware, that there are a few kinks the company could work on fixing as a whole, namely being work/life balance, and better management.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
poor salary, no work/life balance, job security

Productive yet Fun
FITNESS SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Pensacola, FLDecember 1, 2017
Fast Paced, productive team setting where every day is a different day to help someone else. The team is amazing, but I was contracted to a different location being the only CFW team member there making it very stressful and difficult to work sometimes

Great for out of college kids

Pros
Friendly co workers, great members, opportunity to learn for out of school kids
Cons
Rotating shifts, low pay, poor benefits that constantly change, poor management

Fast paced and Quick learning
Fitness Specialist (Current Employee) –  Overland Park, KSSeptember 16, 2017
Very fast paced environment. You must have an unconditional love for fitness to work for this company. Pay is not great compared to the amount of work. Many different locations and under good management. The hours are forever varying and there is hardly ever a set schedule. Hours at this location (4:30 a.m.-9:00 p.m.). The work environment is very team oriented. If you absolutely love fitness and have a second job then this job would be great for you. It's a great for someone straight out of college

Good job, but the commute was terrible and hours were sporadic
Regional Health Fitness Specialist (Current Employee) –  DC, DCJuly 18, 2017
A regional is different than just a regular fitness specialist. I am required to commute sometimes up to 1.5 hours each way which sometimes means getting up at 4:30am. Shifts vary usually from 6-2 or 11-7, but vary site to site. Job is easy and usually boring. Fold towels, teach maybe 1 group fitness class a day, if that. It's hard to advance in the company.
Pros
Easy job
Cons
commute, hours are sporadic, pay isn't good for this area

Boring Job
Health Fitness Specialist (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAMay 9, 2017
Helped me learn to manage a facility but was very slow-paced. Helped me learn to do group exercises classes, but that was all I did. As a starting job not a bad place but would not stay here for long

Health Fitness Specialist (Current Employee) –  Washington City, DCJanuary 24, 2017
This is an decent job if you're a new graduate. However there is a lot of cattiness that occurs. I have been here several months and the turnover rate is nothing I have never seen before. To me that says a lot about one senior account manager in particular since the high turnover has occurred in the area that person oversees.

The communication is lack luster, very little training, and you need to be able to function autonomously in order to thoroughly perform your job. If you are a regional health fitness specialist, good luck with that, they do not reimburse you for mileage and reimburse you a measly $5 per day for parking, well in DC you can pay $26 to park.

The senior account managers have favorites therefore if you are on his/her good side look for advancement, if not you will stay where you are. Program manager position is a dead end position because there is no room to grow because the senior account managers are "lifers" and aren't leaving their position.
Pros
Benefits, hours
Cons
pay, cattiness, immaturity, no lunch breaks

Great place to work! Staff all get along and the members are friendly.
Health Fitness Specialist (Former Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLDecember 21, 2016
A typical day consisted of reporting the usage of our facility, programs, and services. We taught group exercise classes 7 times a week between all staff and personal trained clients off the clock. Upper management was friendly and willing to work with you to keep your work/life balance.

The most unpleasant part of the job was reporting stats (but that's anywhere)

The best part of the job was creating programs for everyone to participate in, and having awesome feedback about how great your program was!
Pros
Active all day. Walk around the gym whenever, test out equipment, interact and chat with members/friends working out
Cons
Leave is use or lose; rotating shifts

Great atmosphere and fun place to work
Senior Health Fitness Specialist (Current Employee) –  O'Fallon, MODecember 13, 2016
Great atmosphere and fun place to work, but compensation is bad. Personal training hours have to be made up on top of your 40 hour work week. Pay is bad. Maternity leave is 5 days.. and sick/holiday is bad.
Pros
Get to work out at work
Cons
Maternity/Sick/Vacation is BAD

Fitness Specialist (Former Employee) –  Suitland, MDJune 14, 2016
A typical day consisted of teaching classes and personal training which was fun.
The remainder of your day consisted of designing and implementing programs that were antiquated and boring.

The hardest part of the job was answering to poor management.
Pros
Customers were great
Cons
