Money/Greed driven not health focused
Yoga Advisor Pure Yoga West (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: free yoga classes, beautiful building, free classes at soul cycle; got to take classes during shift
Cons: pressure, no transparency; no room for dialogue between management and staff; consumes your life
Though this company is pretty clear that it is "luxury fitness" being a full-time staff member here is far from luxurious. Sure, you get to take nice showers and enjoy free towels- but being pressured constantly to be dishonest to clients and focus only on money really detracts from any feeling of community or "health". I was a "Yoga Advisor" for Pure – more... Yoga for 8 months and there was nothing yogic about this job. Had to incessantly call and email potential clients to sell $180 memberships which in this bad economy is nothing short of ridiculous.

There was nothing active about this job and had to sit at a desk underground with no windows for nearly 60 hours a week. The money was alright if you are a shark and can hit your personal goals (which never reflect your experience. The month I started my goal was the same as the Sales Manager who had been there three years.) One week a month I had to work 12 hour days emailing and calling- I am sorry stalking- clients to sign up for memberships.

If you are actually fitness minded or a yogi in anyway being an administrative staff member for Equinox or Pure Yoga will not only drive you crazy but make you question the business in general. If you are focused only on making good money without accountability- you'll find success in this company that encourages competition between staff.

Also- the fact that they refuse to pay their maintenance staff more than minimum wage- people who toil physically for long hours with their bodies and will pay sales staff who sit on their butts all day upwards of $60,000 will always be insane to me. Those people are the ones working- be fair. – less

No life
Certified Personal Trainer (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 1, 2014
It is the top tier gym throughout the nation, but as trainer, not a great place.

You practically have no life, you're required to be at the gym 10hours a day, if not you're there at 5am till 10am and the come back in at around 3pm till 8pm.

Overall, IT IS a salesman job, you need to sell yourself and repeat it over and over again.

Working With the Best in the Business
Personal Trainer (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: you will live a happy life
Cons: low pay
Equinox is purely the best there is in fitness. The training program gets you ready for everything you will encounter in the personal training industry and beyond. This company teaches you not only about how to become effective the the fitness industry, but give you skills that you can carry over into many other industries. They teach you to set yourself – more... up like a business and how to succeed as a business. The team at Equinox is also the most synergistic I have ever seen in a large team. They really promote the power of teamwork and its effects on the individuals involved. This job was truly the most fun I have ever had at work day in and day out. – less

Fun and beautiful atmosphere and people
PERSONAL TRAINER (Current Employee), New York, NYSeptember 1, 2013
Pros: being healthy and helping others transform their lives.
Cons: long days and hrs with down time
The most enjoyable part of the job is doing what I love most, which is transforming lives in a warm, rewarding, and aesthetically beautiful environment. Transformation comes not only through communication, education, and experience but as a commitment to empowering others. I love helping and providing the empathy to understand we all have obstacles – more... to changing our lives. However, it is an art and a science to being a caring trainer. It takes being committed and making our health and fitness makes our lives more fulfilling, more productive, and increases our chances of living a longer and healthier life. As a trainer, I can transform not only bodies, but also minds and spirits. By educating, motivating and encouraging my clients to make time for their health, it brings a feeling of happiness that is rewarding for making a positive change in someones life. That why Equinox lives up to it's motto: " It's not fitness, It's life." – less

Writer (Former Employee), Keene, NHMay 29, 2013
Pros: free pizza
I was reluctant to start writing for the paper, but when I realized I needed to pad out my resume before graduation, it seemed the logical choice. The more I wrote for the paper, the more I grew to love it.
