A good understanding of how to use social media is a plus. Community Involvement — We love being a part of the local community—even if it means working on a Saturday. There are countless opportunities to get outside the club and promote our business. We actively participate in the local Chamber of Commerce and community-sponsored events. Networking / Employee Wellness — We work with a network of local and national employers and insurance companies that try to encourage their employees to lead healthier lifestyles.

Are they inspired to share their experience with friends, family, and coworkers? We pride ourselves on providing top-notch customer service and aim to make each member's and guest's experience exceptional! Do you have this effect on people?
