VIDA Fitness Careers and Company Culture
WE DO THIS BY…
- Creating uniquely designed and laid out spaces
- Providing industry-leading facilities and programming
- Hiring & retaining the best fitness professionals to support you in achieving your goals
- Creating a community where people of shared values can make meaningful personal connections
Our core values represent our commitment to retain our team, retain our members, and have fun doing it. They illustrate how we live out our internal expectations, including how we interact with and support each other.
We activate our creative ideas, self-educate, and train each other based on our individual strengths. Our initiative contains a sense of urgency and intensity that allows us to take advantage of the idea while it’s still fresh.
We have the autonomy, training, and access to information to make decisions and resolve issues in real-time. We view challenges as opportunities; we do not waste time making excuses or identifying impediments to our success. We are opportunity-driven as opposed to excuse-driven.
We grow personally and professionally by being transparent, upfront, and honest. Our team is built on respect, integrity, and humility. While we are serious about our work, we never take ourselves too seriously; we love having fun and joke around when appropriate.
We are a diverse team and work together to reach our maximum potential. We support each other both inside and outside of the club.
We communicate daily across all departments to maintain consistency and ensure that all team members are operating with complete information. We schedule focused training sessions to further develop our strengths and acquire new skills. We remain positive, upbeat, and challenge each other with an understanding that we share the same goals.
We support and improve our local communities through social activities and charitable events. We embrace a healthy lifestyle and enrich the lives of others through wellness.
We retain our team and our members by having fun, implementing their suggestions, reinvesting in our people as well as our clubs, and continuously improving in everything we do. We take advantage of professional development opportunities and share our experiences with the team.
