Job Description

Join the Member Experience team and help build a culture that delivers on the promise we make to our members – feel welcome, feel comfortable and feel healthy.

We’re not looking for just average because we’re not your average club. That’s because our goal is to be recognized as North America’s premiere affordable luxury fitness brand. With that goal in mind, it all starts with you! In our clubs, our Lifeguard & Swim Instructors play a very important role. They work hard day in and day out to provide a fun and safe environment in the pool area, so our members leave with an experience they look forward to each day. Your typical work day will be fun, educational, but it will also bring the responsibility of ensuring the safety of our members too.

  • Build and sustain relationships with new and existing members
  • Stay current on Lifeguarding and safety techniques, to enhance performance
  • Proactively address any member concern or issue related to pool safety and/or escalate them to the Youth Programs Supervisor
