Not worth it
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Katy, TXJuly 13, 2018
Did not enjoy the management. Didn't train their employees nor did they attempt too. They put you in front of a computer and the second day your expected to know what your doing by a bunch of books. Not worth anyone's time.
Pros
Hour lunch break
Cons
Sitting at a desk or walking around waiting for people to come in.

Fitness Consultant (Current Employee) –  Humble, TXJuly 11, 2018
I love working for the company simply because you get a lot of experience working with the many different people and all of the problems that arise. I’m really big on cleanliness and organization. This company teaches me how you have to deal with different people in different ways.

You're only as strong as your management
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  Cornelius, NCJune 25, 2018
I enjoyed working at Fitness Connection simply because it was not a difficult job. The only aspect that made the job difficult was the inconsistencies within management. If management were to strengthen, I believe the establishment could improve drastically.

Slave Drive
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 22, 2018
Basically slavery, once you realize that your salary is less than min wage for the hours you work you’ll start looking elsewhere. Basically a place holder until you find a better job. The gym industry is broken and you’ll never make money like you used to. Still drive numbers but pay you less and work you more
Pros
None
Cons
Hours, pay, stress

Front Desk Associate (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, TXJune 21, 2018
Scanning Members in and handling guests. Making sure guest policies are followed. Answering phones, recording phone inquiries on membership in the phone ti book. Over night there are no managers. Straightening the weights. Handling difficult members is the hardest part of the job.

ok place to work
Kids Club Attendant (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 17, 2018
this job was ok, besides the fact that most of the workers are extremely lazy, but there's not much to do at a job if you're not a consultant or manager. But even the managers didn't do much of a job. There's a lot of gossip and workplace drama which is really annoying. But the kids were cool and it was a fairly simple job.

Not worth it
Fitness Consultant/Sales (Former Employee) –  Greenville, NCJune 12, 2018
You work very long hours during the week to meet your daily goal, with barely in personal life. If you want to go to college, then that’s out of the picture if you want to keep the job. Management only shows favouritism with people hitting goal daily. Your job is threatened from management and up with one bad day. Instead of allowing people to grow, they hire people on the outside from other gyms. You are basically not to take no as an answer and put people in an awkward position. Breaks don’t really happen for long. The pay isn’t worth what you are doing. It’s very competitive with no bonuses. Management hired a new guy paying him more money while I was there for a while and doing really well as the youngest consultant. I got denied a pay raise until I said that I was looking for a new job.
Pros
Keeping your sanity with members and coworkers.
Cons
All of the above listed.

Understaffed and unhygienic
Kids Club Associate (Former Employee) –  Spring, TXJune 5, 2018
While working for the kids club numerous demands for cleaning products were denied. The ratio of children to attendance was abysmal. Only a few employees were competent. The rest pulled stunts like leaving in middle of shifts, being inebriated on the job and talking on their cell phones in the presence of parents and children. The managers would have us work when the city shut off the water. It is a direct violation of OSHA to deprive employees of sanitary restrooms and the fact that this was a gym put everyone at risk for staph infections.

Nothing is stable
Kidsclub (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJune 3, 2018
Favoritism, Favoritism, Favoritism
In every department. It doesn't matter the work you do or the numbers you make. All that matters is how much you kissed a** and those are the ones that get noticed and raises/promotions. SOO many good people quit because they never got recognized for working so hard.
Pros
Free membership, kidsclub
Cons
Everything else!!

Fitness Manager (Former Employee) –  Katy, TXMay 23, 2018
Compensation is low, work hours are brutal, and management sucks. The best thing about this job would be the free membership and the members. This is a job to work if you're in school or living at home.
Pros
Free membership
Cons
Hours, management

Its an ok place
General Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 23, 2018
Working at fitness connection is not bad at all. You can learn new things to help improve yourself. You can actually build a career out of it, however, if you do tend to make a career out of this, than get ready to work six days a week, and one day off. Also prepare yourself to work bell to bell. This only apply s to managers only. Overall its a okay place. It really comes down to who you work for.
Pros
Fun enviroment?
Cons
majority of your life is taken by the hours

Easy Schedule, Mediocre Pay
Personal Trainer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 21, 2018
As a trainer you make your own schedule and hours and you only come in to train if you don't want to work full time. That is great for scheduling and you get to do whatever days / times work for you. However you only get paid for the time you train so you have to keep your clients and hope that your sales team gets them for you.
The flipside is that there is no sales involved if you don't want to hunt for clients which is fantastic for someone who loves to train but not sell.
Pros
No sales
Cons
Compensation is average.

fitness connection
Front Desk Receptionist manager/ key holder (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 19, 2018
Fitness connection was an interesting place to work. The staff was cool, and the management was extremely unorganized. The clientele was intense at times when they didn't get their way.

Membership Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 18, 2018
The company taught certain work tactics that I did not agree with and the possibility of having a social life or even family life did not work with my schedule.
