Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 1 March 2018
I loved my time at Wynn Fitness! The team was fantastic, and the club was great to work out in. The management was nice and pushes you to be great. If you are willing to put in an honest days work you are greatly rewarded.
I only left because I wanted to go back to school. I would consider joining the Wynn team again in the future!
Social Media Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 October 2017
Coming from a corporate world in financial services, employment at Wynn Fitness brings the fresh air into my life, a certain comfort that comes with the friendliness and family-like atmosphere here at the head office as well as all the clubs. The best thing about the Wynn Fitness are the people! That goes for those who work here and the members.
In my five months of working here, I had nothing but the best experience. I like the fact that the passion for fitness and healthy lifestyle comes from the top and reflects down to the clubs and care for our members in various ways, whether it is investing in hi-tech fitness equipment or giving back to the community by sponsoring so many local charity organizations and their events. It means to me to be part of something like that and in my small way be able to change people’s lives for the better.
The work here is conducted professionally with a high sense of responsibility to those who we serve. Good effort is being recognized and certainly appreciated, and trust can be earned. I love the fact that the Management is also casual, but that is in time planned for fun, so then we have lunches and birthday celebrations together, team building activities and honest help and encouragement in achieving personal fitness goals.
It’s a new industry for me so it’s very exciting and learning doesn’t stop.
Awesome coworkers and bosses! Also, I get to use our spectacular clubs.
Not enough time to tell all inspiring stories from our clubs.
Ex PT (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 29 May 2017
As someone who has had experience working in other Strength and Conditioning sectors before, here are my thoughts:
GOOD. Better variety in equipment, esp the squat room + astro/functional/TRX rooms upstairs.
BAD: Revolving door for Personal Trainers. They have the bare minimum requirements for hiring trainers, and essentially care most about sales and getting clients to renew once their training package is up. Confusing, because a PT is supposed to take on a client for 3-6 mos, teach them technique, exercise selection etc, and ultimately set the person up to take care of themselves the rest of their lives. But not here, reward is on getting them long term hooked, and your ratings and job security is compromised if they dont re-sign. Bottom line: sales and membership, less on helping the clients
Front End Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 May 2017
Need to work on intra structure in regards to management and training. Unrealistic expectations and false promises made towards staff and customers. At times upper management neglect the needs of employees. Overall good people .
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 26 February 2017
If you're interesting in being pushed around regardless of seniority or job performance, then try working here. The management is essentially a frat house. The gym is constantly breaking, with the steam room shutting down or the staff constantly switching with monthly hiring/firing. Fires people in the probationary period, so don't stay if you want steady income. Definitely worth it for a quick cash grab, not much other than that. I'd rather sell lemonade on the street.
Cleaning (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 February 2017
the employees are very out going and work hard. everyone is very friendly except management who will smile in your face but talk behind your back. it wasn't a very good experience other than some of the staff.
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 14 September 2016
Been a longstanding employee for years. Have worked in the fitness industry for a long time and this is by far the best place I have worked. Great team environment. Time spent on developing employees and there skills. Offers superb work-life balance. Cares about the community and gives back. Donates to charities. Was involved in building a house for humanity. Has donated over $100k to Canadian Breast Cancer of the past couple of years.
The salary on the low end. Management is the problem. It starts with both downtown district and club management. They are not transparent and very vindictive. Extremely high employee turnover is related to low pay and negative atmosphere from the management. STAY AWAY!!!

This is the most rewarding opportunity I've experienced in my career in sales.The way Wynn Fitness makes you feel right at home with their fantastic training program to get you up to speed made my confidence sky rocket to another level. I love health and wellness and selling a lifestyle choice to change life's makes what im doing staight from the heart. I believe in what im selling and so does Wynn Fitness. The positive people that I work with and their members creates an atmosphere that one who finds true happiness can only dream. Change for the future, dream big, and the possibilities are endless.

You have to take actions on your decision to make it a reality!
