Massage Therapist (Former Employee), McLean, VA – June 2, 2014
Pros: free use of the club amenities
Cons: high prices for services, low payout for those services
Equinox was fun, high energy, and fast paced. It was great to be allowed to work out and get to know all the personal trainers and the members of the club. It had a family feel that stayed in the club but more difficult to cultivate outside the club.
sales representative (Former Employee), Cote-De-Liesse QC – July 8, 2014
I start off by turning on the computer at my desk. I prepare my script and get ready to answer calls. Everyday, the goal was to reach at least 15 sales a day.
I learned how to sympathize with customers and help them with their issues. I also learned how to come up with instant rebuttals to ensure that the customer does not get any negative feelings – more... towards the products. – less
call center (Former Employee), cote de liese – June 24, 2013
Pros: coworkers were amazing
Cons: no benefits, employees work like slaves, no respect towards employees
employees were controlled like slaves, always lied about benefits never gave our rights in commissions lied employees by telling we'd get 150$ in we recruted more employees. never got the $$$ promised worked over 40 hours always seems to get less then what we were suppose to get as paychecks
Zero career growth despite major promises at time of hire.
Massage Therapist (Former Employee), Paramus, NJ – July 13, 2014
Pros: free gym membership, health benefits
Cons: everything else
I worked at Equinox for 1 year and the turn over of employees is extremely high. Managers are rude and egotistical and will step on you to make their numbers look good. If you are a high performer like I was you will be promised the sun and the moon but will get nothing as the general manager (WHO BTW WAS CONVICTED FOR DWI) will make sure you stay in – more... your position so his club numbers look good. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. It's all hype and marketing designed to pull members and employees. Just do a quick search and you'll figure out they are always hiring trainers, massage therapists etc. only good thing was the health benefits and free gym membership. Spa is super slow and although you get paid higher commission compared to other places you won't be getting any business 80% of the time. I made a measly $300 paycheck every two weeks for working full time. – less
Pilates Teacher (Current Employee), Pasadena, CA – July 10, 2014
Pros: free gym membership!
Cons: instability associated with an appointment-based job
It is a fun, high-energy environment. They allow you to build your own business without the burden of overhead cost. By meeting so many of the members, you learn to rapidly assess each individual's needs. The hardest part of the job is the constantly changing schedule. The best part is that you get the gym membership for free!

Pros: co workers were easy to mesh with, all walks of life kept it entertaining
Cons: overturn, trainers were employed for short periods of time
A typical day. Clients in the morning 8-11, Clients in the evening 4-9. I learned the technical aspects of exercise as well as physiology. Management was strict and consistent, My co workers were my family here. The hardest part of the job was having clients who were unable to make appointments due to job related circumstances. The most enjoyable part – more... was having clients believe and see results when they were able to stay on track with nutrition and workouts. – less

Personal Trainer (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – May 8, 2014
Cons: everything, salary, management
The management here focuses on one thing and one thing only, to keep the image of Equinox flowing. No matter if it upsets the members, staff and everyone else. The management is incredibly rude, the music in the club has been bothering members for years and they don't do anything about it. they switch the lower level management out regularly and they – more... don't hesitate to fire people that don't agree with their methods. Since I started working here 19 people were fired in 6 months. – less
Personal Trainer (Current Employee), PalosVerde – April 29, 2014
Typical day I provide customer service for members, provide proper technique and knowledge of any fitness equipment or corrective exercise. I learned a lot about sales and customer service. Management is awesome, they have an open door policy and actually care about your success. Co-workers are really great, they know the meaning of teamwork and we – more... like to work together to solve any problems we might have. we also help each other if we need help. The hardest part about my job is schedule isn't really consistent, I tend be scheduled all over the day with different times every week. The best part of my job is I get to socialize with new members and even tend to turn them into potential clients. – less
