I would love to have shares and be part of the share holder's. Working with Virgin active it's so Amazing you feel strong enough to do anything...cause at times we are busy....its a company that does not tolarate the use of strong language drugs and Racism..its a Health club. That's looks at member service and keep the members happy...its a value for money.
working at virgin active was a very positive experience for me. It helped me in growing my confidence from approaching members and interacting with members daily. Taking classes was always a fun experience for me and being able to help teach people more about fitness was a great reward.

Early morning shifts
there was a day at work were an instructor did not show up and i had to take the class and it was a bootcamp class, the members showed up i appologised on behalf of the instructor for not showing up and i offered to do the class. so i did the class and hessist the first timers through out and made sure that everyone enjoyed the clkass and asked feedback afterwards and in fitness any feedback is good feedback, so the feedback was good but there were those few that did not enjoy the class so obviously you can't please everyone and that's the hard part of the job but the great part is when people enjoy the class, the most enjoyable part is when you build a special bond with the members so much that they look forward to your classes and ask others to join and you get a class full of people. the management in a fitness centre is easy as long as you know the rules, abide by them and be kind when informing members on how to abide by them as well then everything runs smoothly.
you get to listen to music
late night shifts
Great company with growth opportunity, learnerships, loan to study and inside training. They have GEID course that encourages anyone who is interested in group training to anyone interested in being a Group instructor and spinning courses.
