Productive and hard working job.
Fitness Instructor / Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Sheffield, ENG24 September 2013
Typical day at work is either an early (6am - 14:30), mid (10:45-18:15) or a late (13:45-22:15). You need a lot of self motivation, can be very boring.

You clean the gym and poolside, collect and deliver used and new towels to laundry, write gym members programmes and take classes.

The most enjoyable bit of the job is helping people lose weight and gain general fitness, when they get results it makes you happy to see people be happier about themselves!
Pros
Free Gym Membership
Cons
Part of a hotel but get secluded from it with little support. 30 minutes break unpayed
