Though the workload is is rather simple and straight forward and the work environment is friendly certain locations do not maintain a management or staff for very long if regional managers decide to promote and move them to larger health club locations, which leaves the part time hourly employees without a manger or unknowing of who will come next.
A very dangerous place to stay too long. Can have a negative impact on your resume if your not careful. Also, so many bad learning practices picked up from working here that you may have to reteach yourself the right way of doing things after you have moved on. Hostile environment and if you report any kind of bullying, your going to face retaliation.
Wow I see now former employees I worked with in 2016 comes forward with Youfit unethical practices. But I guess it was alright when it happen to me as they try to cover it up their practices with them. Bunch of kids running a gym leads to favoritism which leads to racism’s and that’s why they never expanded here and never will. Management team also sucks as they are dishonest.I worked at other gyms and never seen nothing like this before but proof is in the pudding as they say. When comes to numbers all gyms and business are like that, and I am not against that your number are low,you got to go. However to fire or demote someone because you personally don’t like them or you want to show off your big ego is not right.
During my time at Youfit Health Clubs, I have worked with many talented individuals that have helped me grow personally and professionally. It is a very employee-centric company. You get out of it what you put it. Be ready to put in the work.
Positive work environment, advancement opportunity
While there are opportunities for advancement and education in the company, it is hard to trust those at the top making decisions. For trainers, there is a large focus on sale rater than skills development.
While working at Youfit as a personal trainer I never had manager there longer than a month as we went though trainers like candy. I had gotten a certified as a personal trainer through Youfit, then after I went through their training course I had to go through another on ( which was fine I have no problems with farthing my education and being more knowledgeable) I was also told that I would get a raise after I completed that course well that never happens. I got reprimanded because I didn’t work past 6pm even though I was the only trainer that was willing to come in and do 5am sessions Monday through Friday

In my gym I feel appreciated and needed, and for the most part I have flexibility and control of my schedule. I'm paid well when training, but my training rates are limited (can only be clocked in for 10 hours a week and am paid minimum). Corporate doesn't really care about their employees. They make things more difficult and challenging for the trainers every year...

Overqualified industry veteran, due to this being a low dollar entity it de-values the other mid and upper level health clubs in the fitness industry. Sign of the times, I shouldn't complain. My supervisors were actually solid guys who seemed to love the company and training. Rare
Flexibility, solid training

Thank you very much for your feedback. This is greatly appreciated. I am glad to hear that you had an overall good experience working on our team. Thank you and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
Fun atmosphere and inviting. Staff is great to work with. Job advancement is not much, but still is a good place to work and meet people. The coaching through upper management was great, especially through the YouCoach department.
This job was challenging at first then I began to think positive passion to get my job done efficiently and on time.
Being their for longer hours helped me get work done faster for the next day to work making it relaxing but working properly at all times.
If you are passionate about the fitness world, this is not the place for you. You’d be better off at planet fitness where they actually value their employees. I was paid $12/hr to be a fitness director! I made more at PF as a trainer!!!
