Learn from my mistakes

The worst and most toxic work culture I have ever experienced. They show no interest in developing their staff and are only focused on sales. They do not care about their members or their staff. The only people that matter to them are those that work at head office or are able to bend the knee.....

Pros

None

Cons

The entire job

Fun workplace

Great place to work. It is fast paced which helps makes the shifts go by quickly. The most enjoyable part of this job for me is the great group of people that you work with every day and also the work benefits are very good. (discounts at certain stores) But, the minimum wage rate is too low for the amount of hours worked.

Fun and lively environment

I've learnt in my current role everyone have their own goals and you as an instructor need to meet every individuals goals by progression to everyone's fitness level. Management is very friendly and helpful in all means. Work enviroment is very diversity and open to all which make it pleasent and joyful. Most enjoyable part is seeing the progress of the clients and to ensure they are happy and satisified with my service. I've built a good clientele based and is open to all. Hardest part of it all is that Cape Town is facing water crisis which affects members participation within the gym due to now water to shower, other than that everything is good.

Pros

Meeting new and exciting people

Cons

System issues
