2. Gyms (Barry’s Bootcamp, Equinox, Blink, etc.)

Working at a gym makes students money as well as helps them save it. When you work at a gym like Blink (which is just a few minutes walk from main campus), you usually get a free membership to the gym. Help yourself stay healthy while saving some extra cash on what would go towards an expensive gym membership. At Pace, working at gyms is actually quite common for this reason.
