I can honestly say that working at a gym is one of the best jobs I've ever had, even back when I was selling memberships before I became a trainer. There are so many benefits to working at one, benefits that you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. I even enjoy my floor shifts (which are minimal), where I choose to spend most of my time cleaning since that in itself is meditative. I also spend those shifts doing my best to meet new people while catching up with ones I already know. I think anyone who's just starting out--particularly teens--could benefit from working at a gym.
