    Current Employee - Front Desk in New York, NY

    I have been working at Crunch Fitness part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very fun environment, plus you get the opportunity to get a free gym membership. Also unlike most costumer service jobs, management is not on your back constantly and allows you to work your own way as long as you get the job done. Very independent.

    Cons

    The pay is way too low. Also because management is not really around individuals on the floor are constantly trying to figure things out themselves, this is because their is a very big communication problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider asking corporate to raise the hourly rate for their workers. Management should also learn to communicate better with their staff. Other than that a great place to work if you are interested in costumer service and/or fitness.

    Former Employee - Personal Trainer in New York, NY

    I worked at Crunch Fitness full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Workout whenever I wanted.
    Technically made my own schedule.
    Discount on products
    Health/Dental Insurance
    No set hours
    Great Pay scale
    Forced me to learn sales techniques and becoming a people person.

    Cons

    Sales oriented.
    Only care about putting up numbers.
    Bottom of the totem pole.
    Don't care about your clients, just selling more packages.
    Sales Minimum
    Had to sell bad supplements.
    Kiss social life goodbye if you actually want to make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inform people before you hire them that this is primarily a sales job. Actually teach them or help them close the sale. Don't just throw them onto the floor and expect them to know how to do everything. Help fill up new trainers schedules before hiring more trainers. Don't be so strict on the sales minimum. GET RID OF DOTFIT!

    Poor management, no quality of life, and surprisingly demanding.

    I have been working at Crunch Fitness full-time

    Pros

    If you love personal training, there are plenty of members willing to pay for your training.

    Cons

    Management can be poor and demanding. At the end of the day it is more of a sales job than a training job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create shifts for each trainer so the floor won't look cluttered with money-hungry trainers. There is excessive turnover for a reason.

    Pros

    You receive good training on their product and education reimbursement program

    Cons

    Management has favoritism towards others and makes unfair & illogical decisions regarding clientele. It's a social environment for people to hang out rather than a professional work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your supervisors how to actually manage and not socialize. Make sure your trainers are qualified and not to waste the time of those who have the experience and training.

    Former Employee - Membership Advisor in New York, NY

    I worked at Crunch Fitness part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is great (cool music, bright colors keep you stimulated), and the clientele is usually pretty nice. Free gym Membership.

    Cons

    Given the nature of how they've been doing financially, it makes sense that they don't pay as well as they should. It's also gotten more and more micromanaged/corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really give employees to do what they're good at it, and offer comprehensive training so you won't have to feel like someone is breathing down your neck at all times.
