Fun place but sometimes too much play...
Front Desk Manager/Trainer (Former Employee) – Coral Gables, FL – November 14, 2018
Good culture and great members.
Over-all (for me at least) the members kept me there. A lot of the managers do not really put in the focus necessary to achieve results for their employees. There is an underlying issue that they somehow benefit or don’t care to address, which is the need to hire trainers when some of their senior trainers do not have enough clients. I feel that they hire trainers with the premise to maintain floor shifts on schedule month-to-month, week-to-week. Also with the premise that if you are there all the time you WILL gain clients. This is a technique that causes a huge turnover of trainers which has a negative effect on members. Not really smart, especially considering that these members are sick and tired of being bothered on the floor by new trainers who are trying to get them to buy all the time, and you need those members to buy for the personal training business to flourish.
Great education for trainers. In fact maybe the best around. My advice, if you can afford it, is to stay as long as you can to get a great education and experience then go on your own.
Great members! Great culture! Great education!
No benefits! No professionalism! High turnover!
