Great vibe and atmosphere, friendly interaction amongst staff and members, health and fitness at the forefront of our image
Great place to work if you are into sports and health and fitness. Nice people and overall superb environment. Competitive and challenging. My experience working for Planet Fitness was amazing - I was part of a great sales team and the manager was engaging and supportive.
Get to use the fascilities, two hour lunch break
Long hours, seven days of the week
The company has a lot of opportunities however they do not provide growth opportunities to their internal employees. I found myself training 2 reception managers and other senior as well as junior receptionists from other clubs in which one of the receptionist managers was gonna be a reception manager in my club
Typical Day at work - would be relaxed until Peak Time, and that is when you have to take control of your position there- the mission Is for the access point at Reception to run smoothly esp. during Peak Hours. If you can manage to assist at least two people at a time and stay calm, you will be fit for this position. The best time to put your smiley face on is PEAKTIME, the clients enjoy interacting with the front desk staff. Therefore being helpful by nature is important and having expectational communication skills to build to positive relationship with clients is your key to have a successful day. Learning - in my experience I enjoy it the most, the more I knew the more I could perform with excellence at my job, I loved the clients and I loved my team. Training is essential in that environment, so be sure you are open to learn. Culture- Friendly, fast paced, teamwork is expectational, depending what energy you give out. Well, the hardest part of my job was arriving on time, it was my biggest challenge but nonetheless my duties weren't challenging esp., when you love communicating and interacting with great people from different. The most enjoyable part of my shift, was successfully helping people and it gave me great satisfaction to know that 99% of my clients was satisfied with the service at the front desk, and established a trusting relationship was satisfying, the little gestures from the clients made it worthwhile for me to come back to work the next, it gave me a sense a purpose. Management is Helpful and Willing to provide training when needed, - more...
Access to train and use the facilities
Left Planet Fitness abruptly after 4 years of dedication which i regret everyday Best job Best boss Equity in line with Fairness Ive became socially interactive and did a job well done. The drive or targets and daily activity keeps one active
Learnt to work with different cultures and also taught me a lot about individuals and how they handle and cope with stress. Best part of the job was meeting all the clients and getting to know them. Hardest part was the long hours, not being able to spend time with my family.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
It was fast pace and very demanding. But pleasant. Great staff and great managment. Members were often times difficult,but that is were great member client skills come into play.
If you want to be happy even doing whqt you already love, stay away from this company. If you're starting your career as a Personal Trainer and you want it to be successful, stay away from here. They cancelled the great special about them which was 3 months free rent for PTs so they're like VA. BUT unlike VA, they don't even try to help you or negotiate when you owe they just block you access at the gym and you can't make money to pay them 🙄🙄🙄
1.I always focus on results and looking forward on doing what I need to do on a day. 2.I have learned to work with other people and respect them and their opinions 3. help and compliments from management 4. workplace culture, Give best service to our existing clients and new 5 hardest going home with out a sale. 6. working together as family and support each other to achieve our goals.
Having a typical day at work will be not having a busy day with few members accessing the club few queries to attend to. Everyday at planet fitness is a learning day u gat to learn different things from different people such as how u supposed to greet meet and talk.management should be fair at all times.
