Incredible Work Culture with and Inspired Day to Day that is Always Challenging and Different
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 23 January 2019
While the basis is that your position is to sell memberships and coaching, a job with Anytime Fitness is so much more. You are able to be the person who changes lives and gets others to a healthier place. You are in a competitive and fast paced environment where you are trained in sales and constantly are developing business skills as well as your fitness knowledge. The workplace culture is what makes this job the best and can keep you going on even the hardest work days. The members are incredible and our colleagues are even more amazing, and they make every day seem like you are really making a difference in your community.
poorly regional managed and owner operated. Huge staff turnover in the year and a bit of business- that is a huge indication in my opinion of how the staff is treated and how the higher ups "resolve" issues.
Boasts open communication but vindictive unfair practices against staff and two faced alliances.
Love the club and the members, love the gym, wish there was more stability in the ownership.
Many regular tasks and upkeep that were not completed by owner/regional manager. unfinished construction after a year and a half of operations.
no break time (illegal)
great gym, great members, somewhat healthy and positive workplace
no government mandated breaks, poor management, petty conflict resolution
Great for students or fitness buffs, feels like high school sometimes though
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 November 2018
I had been a member for 3 years before getting hired, and they were there to support me with a position on their front desk, as a floater with MAYBE one shift a week. Then drama took hold, it started to feel like high school, and with all the back-biting and politics, I had to go my separate ways and even switch gyms.
Working around fitness-minded people and great equipment
Was promised a lot when I applied and given the bare minimum. I brought in business as soon as I started (from my previous job), and proved myself more than capable of being a manager and working full time hours. The owner refused to give me full time hours, does not want to discuss wage increases with employees or offer fair compensation for the amount of work required and expected, and does not keep his employees in mind. No professionalism of having an employment contract to sign, with the outlined wage, responsibilities, and pay scale - or a non-compete clause. There are a lot more complaints I can make about how the business is run, but my bottom line is watch who you work for. During your interview don't be afraid to interview your potential boss as well, and make it clear that you would like to see and sign an employment contract before you start.
Free gym membership
All the responsibility without proper compensation

Director of Sales (Current Employee) – Ingersoll, ON – 8 November 2018
Career opportunity at Anytime Fitness has been phenomenal! A lot of autonomy but the right individuals and the right work ethic are key to success. There is a lot of opportunity for personal and professional development. Positions are sales focussed while providing good customer service and maintaining high standards within the facility. It is a rewarding career working with a fun team of people, and lots of room for growth.
Free membership, team building events, personal development opportunities, high autonomy, rewarding compensation.
Hard work - if you’re not interested in working hard.
Personal Trainer, office stafff (Former Employee) – Pitt Meadows, BC – 27 September 2018
individually franchise owned, 95% of the owners don't have a clue of how to run a gym. Its a cookie cutter franchise business model. you get no support from them. you are required to pick up your own clients basically from scratch, not many members there to start with. The % you receive starts at only 40% which is 20$ in most cases. A lot of unpaid hours to pick up clients, do paperwork, etc. no benefits or anything.
you can work for free to build up your confidence in order to approach clients
unpaid hours, no support from owners or management staff, poor pay, no benefits
Assistant (Current Employee) – Bolton, ON – 28 May 2018
It was alot of fun working with them, until i did not know what my position was after a couple months, I was not getting called in for shifts or anything, i found out last week that i was put on the sub list and they did not have time for more people working with two co ops in all day everyday and with two people working all day, but found out that they just hired someone else and not giving me shifts.
Part time employee (Former Employee) – Maple, ON – 19 April 2018
On the smaller side compared to your ordinary gym. Good balance between work and social life. Job role was pretty simple and straight forward. i am very knowledgeable when it comes to the gym industry so it was a great way to familiarize myself with this type of interaction.
Assistant Faculty Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 10 March 2018
Working at anytime fitness was a very interesting experience, it was also very fun. All the employees were very kind and respectful. The hardest part of the day was that I constantly had to walk around the gym constantly organizing or cleaning equipment, but it was worth it because I got to join into some of the fitness classes which meant i get to keep my fitness consistent while working.
Club Manager (Current Employee) – Angus, ON – 1 March 2018
I've been in several different management roles but this has been by far my favorite. Being a franchise all club locations have different owners; the owners of Anytime Fitness Angus go above and beyond anyone I've worked for in the past. They give you the freedom to make the decisions you see fit but the support to help you come to that decision in the first place. They believe in a proper work/life balance and never make you feel guilty for needing any time off. They always give you the support you in need in any day-to-day activity in the club and you never feel like you're in the job alone.
The job itself is very rewarding; I love coming into work every day. I get to bring my passion for health and fitness with me and share it with everyone who walks through that door. In a typical day I spend time on the computer, making phone calls, cleaning and spending time out on the floor with our members - I never get bored as there's always something interesting to keep me busy. I would highly recommend working at this location to anyone who loves fitness and people.
Free membership, flexible schedule, constant support
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 February 2018
-took care of everything in the club from cleaning to sales. It was a lot of work, and the pay is not worth it. -the managers/boss' are really cool aside from not paying what someone is worth. -There's not much room for advancement and the job becomes repetitive and boring. -If you get bored or grossed out easily, this is probably not the job for you.
