Venue Assistant (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 12 December 2017
Communicating with the hirers, welcoming them in as there is loads of activites in venues. Cleaning and making sure that the venue is cleaning insuring that there are no hazards and making sure it is safe. I have learnt to be independent in my work place as I am guarding the venue, my comuncation and patients with customers have been great answering phone calls and directing customers to the right places. Managment could be better at communicating as things need to be done in smaller venues. Hardest part of the job if the managent do not get back about the venue, as hirers will not be happy if e.g light or heaters are not working.
Fitness instructor, Group exercise (Outdoor (Current Employee) – London – 8 February 2018
Delivering a morning session, write feedback and send it to the athlete, prepare next session. Do other jobs. The athletes likes the routine, but they also want new challenges. A little of admin work. Reserches for news in sport. Advertising is sometime time consuming. But at the end of the day is the excitment for tomorrow's coaching!
General Manager (Current Employee) – South West – 28 November 2017
You need to be self motivated to thrive in Fusion. This is how Leisure is to work in in 2017. Gone are the days of heavily subsidised community facilities operated with little consideration given to basic business principles.
A legitamate leisure operator with plenty of progression opportunities available to those who are prepared to work hard for them.
Great opportunities to learn and progress
Sucessful performance not always recognised or rewarded
a typical day at work would be , check the computer for inductions and brief the fitness team, look after the PTs and checking sales i learnt so much in my time going from a fitness instructor to fitness manager. it was a family and community gym so brought many people from different backgrounds together . i enjoyed helping the clients and making sure their get the full benefit from my knowledge and expertise
Don't get given a chance especially if your female communication is poor, your mainly picked on by management because your new while others can do what they want! They don't give you any credit or appreciate any good work you do for them. They don't overly help you improve or say if you are doing something wrong and want you to improve! Only good to work there if your new to the industry and want some experience in a gym. Most of the team are friendly too and easy to work with.
Duty Manager (Former Employee) – Somerset – 19 July 2017
Workplace was taken over recently by Fusion. Head office staff who make big changes to the centres have no idea how to run a leisure centre that are not in London. Staff within the centre was very good and other nearby centres were also helpful. Completely blinded by the bustling London way of life and driving sales, instead of giving some focus to retention of customers. Would not recommend working for Fusion Lifestyle. If looking for a job in leisure, look elsewhere. Also very tight on training and progression and give away very little unless the employee will pay.
Lifeguard (Current Employee) – Bedford, Bedfordshire – 14 June 2017
Working with fusion aid very fun and the job does get done, my typical day at work would be cleaning, helping out with bits and sitting on poolside. Work culture is very good and fusion,everyone gets along.
However, management at fusion recently hasn't been very good as it has been low on staff memebers
Cleaning (making sure the gym is tidy), sales, answering phone calls, looking after the gym (make sure people know what they are doing) inductions, writing training programmes based on individuals and their goals, talking to members of the gym, booking classes, outreach. Also teaching classes such as spin (studio cycling) and circuits. I also teach gym floor classes on a daily basis and I really enjoy doing it. By doing all of those I have built up more confidence by talking people and trying to offer them memberships. I also had to sell the gym in the positive way and persuade people that is the best gym that they can get.
