Assistant Store Manager
From day one, we enable our people to discover their own purpose. Because we know that when everyone is connected to their own purpose and aligned with the company’s purpose, it allows us to propel each other forward. And truly realize the full potential within every one of us.
Our vision is to create more than just a place where people can get gear to sweat in, we want to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. Therefore, it’s important for us to create real relationships with our guests and understand what they are passionate about, how they like to sweat and help them celebrate their goals.
We believe in a lot of things. Sweating once a day. Flossing. Having daily dance parties. Above all, we believe in self-empowerment, positive inner-development and living a life of possibility. It’s more than what you do today; it’s what you’re going to do tomorrow.
A constant that has never wavered is our desire to empower people to reach their full potential through providing the right tools and resources, and encouraging a culture of leadership, goal setting and personal responsibility.
Our core values of honesty, curiosity, entrepreneurship, courage, inclusion, personal responsibility, and FUN are lived by our people every day and are at the heart of our unique company culture.
We live a life we love. We set our goals to align with our vision, and it’s why, so often, our one-year goals become today’s reality.
