At Blink, this role is called a Moodlifter, but until that is a word job seekers are typing into Google, we will stick with using the more widely known title of Front Desk Associate! What is a Moodlifter you ask? Moodlifters are the people who greet each of our members with ear to ear smiles, over the top enthusiasm and pretty much know everyone in the gym by name. They will run to open the door for you in a driving rainstorm and change a channel so you don’t miss a minute of the big game. They consistently go above and beyond and you can’t help but smile when you see them.
