Fun place to work, plenty to learn from and grow

The work place is fun, I learnt plenty. Very demanding and leaves no time for family/ Must be flexible and highly adaptive because of the long working hours and the possibility to be relocated to a different club.

Pros

free gym accessibility

Cons

No benefits or stability

my review on both companies i have worked for

in both companies the workplace was a fun filled area.There people there were glad to be there because they knew that we will b motivated to achiech and reach our targets and personal goals i learned that a dairy can be a guide for u to reach everything you need in life.hardest part of the jobs were to get leads because not everyone wants what you selling so i had help from my fellow co-workers to help me close a client The most enjoyable part of the job was we all were looking out for each other and there was no bad day at work everyday was a good day because we a good manager how motivated us and told us to forget about the past days and focus on the today and the coming days ahead

Cons

Fun workplace

It is a good company to work for especially if u are a health conscious person and when you know that one always has to feel good about themselves and that not taking good care of oneself can lead to dangerous diseases, Good co-workers ,lovely place to spend the whole day

Productive at work

I learnt that a team and not an individual makes a success of the work environment. A day was full of many but small activities which have to be completed timeously. the company was still new so management was still also finding its footing in terms of placing procedures and protocols. The ing the extra hardest part was putting in the extra hours in order to make money for myself. sometimes I will have work 24 hours non stop only to rest for a few hours to return to work. I thoroughly enjoyed the free workout

Pros

you get to be fit and healthy for free

Cons

long hour shifts
