Do not work here!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON21 July 2017
Be prepared to have a crazy work schedule that goes from closing the gym to opening it the next day. Commission is very low. No benefits or weekends off. They will say it's not a job it's a career but the only people who move up are family. When there is not classes going on you basically stand around or call people you have already called 14 days in a row. The treatment of staff is horrific to say the least.
Pros
Free membership
Cons
Everything else about working there

Fantastic workouts. Poorly run facility.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON10 July 2017
The main thing that kept me working with the company was the workouts.
The stress from being over worked (constantly working 15 plus days straight) and being understaffed became too much. The studio had about 2 SA's for 3 months and didn't seem to be in much rush to find new recruits.
You either did a task perfectly right, or it was wrong. So, 90% of the time no SA or staff member was ever up to the Owners expectations. Nothing was ever good enough. Very hard people to work for, not encouraging or worth it to work for them.
Pros
free membership
Cons
how it's run.

like other gyms
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON3 June 2017
All though Orangetheory Fitness would not like you to use the word "gym" they are like every other pushy gym.
There is the expectation to call/email/text people EVERYDAY for many days in a row, so make sure you are comfortable with what felt like harassing people.
The company did not provide accurate training, but did run a tight ship when it came to rules.
I didn't feel this was a company that believed in their employees, nor give them room to grow.
My advice: if are are looking for a free gym membership, work for people who do not care about you, make a little bit of money and go then home- apply.
Pros
free orangetheory fitness membership
Cons
No support. Pushy sales people. No room for growth

Victoria and Westshore Studios are among the best
Trainer (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC8 April 2017
I have been with OrangeTheory for almost 5 years now, and the Victoria/Westshore studios are among the best. Having began in Edmonton, the environment and culture is worlds apart.
The sales staff and team of trainers work together, supporting one another both in sales and in member care. The studio managers and head trainer, are there to help you succeed and progress, answering questions and helping along the way. As a trainer, it's rare to find constructive criticism in the industry, if you're helping another trainer evolve, you can potentially lose clients, that is not the environment here. The focus on members is an easy shift with all the background work, the music, and the workouts, created for you to deliver. Using the heart rate monitor has single handedly changed my approach to fitness. The results! By focusing on certain heart rate zones, the body is designed to respond better, the science within the body is what does it. If you haven't checked it out already, you should!
Pros
Culture, support, team sales incentives
Cons
With any new business, communication is always improving

Most fun job I ever had
Fitness Coach (Current Employee) –  Stittsville, ON23 March 2017
The team, the members, everything about this place is absolutely amazing. Coaching classes is fun, they always provide feedback for improvement and management is great, always willing to listen to their employees. My only complaint is that they play around with the schedule a lot so it is hard to have any kind of stability/know what your next paycheck is gonna look like.
Pros
Fun work, great team
Cons
unsteady

If you have a pesonnality, ambition or are passionate about fitness, run for the hills
Trainer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton & Area, AB13 July 2016
The product that this company provides is a good one. The workout is one that I would recommend to most. However, it does seem that management, at all levels, are slowly dragging it through the dirt till it dies. If you are a Kinesiology student that wants to use their degree, this is not the place for you. If you are looking to become a robot and nothing more, this will be perfect. When trainers try to have an opinion, stand up for member health and safety, support each other, and try to have a good time, you can be sure that it will be shut down. There is zero job security as I have watched many people disappear without explanation. Managements practices are conniving and at times, illegal. If you do get stuck here, the members are truly the joy of the job and the reason you will keep coming back
Pros

management, staff meetings, compensation, job culture, advancement, job secruity

Studio manager and Corporate in Canada
Studio Manager (Current Employee) –  Canada19 April 2016
The Orangetheory work out and concept is amazing. Small studio very details oriented and personal approach. However, the corporation that sell the franchise in Canada is very bad and so desorganized. Minimum training provided and corporate does not have enough staff to help the studio. Also the company that provides retails is based in the US and is completly incompetent.
The owners of mystudio has been struggling with corporate from day 1. Coprorate is very desorganized and the US corporate should step in.

If you plan on being a studio manager or own a franchise in Canada be aware,

Great place to workout
Full Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  St. Albert, AB9 June 2015
Sometimes it feels like there are too many cooks in the kitchen saying what should be done. Studio management needs development and regular reviews by staff members to ensure areas are being covered. The members are what makes the job the best, and they are amazing. Plus the workout is really good, and it makes it easy to sell a good product.
