    Great idea for a new gym, needs refinement.

    I have been working at Crunch Fitness (more than an year)

    Pros

    Low price point, lots of new gym members to work with and inspire. Very good model for opening up fitness to many people who would not ordinarily go to the gym. For that reason, it's a really great place. All their equipment is new and they keep the place VERY clean.

    Cons

    There isn't much cohesion in the management style, communication, sense of being on a team. There's a high turnover and most of the team members are pretty young. Some of their stereo equipment is very bad and occasionally they have some miscommunication in regards to policies and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team building. Consistency. Training. Competitive wage. Perks for employees. In-service. Support. Feedback should be given in the positive, followed by the constructive, not the other way around.

    I have been working at Crunch Fitness part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is a perpetual up-beat nature about working at Crunch. They encourage involvement with themed days and member appreciation. Non competitive environment. I promote your class, you promote my training.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. People are always coming and going. New trainers, new instructors, new front desk staff. I've worked for 6 years in a gym and the general manager and a few key people are the only ones who has been consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People would take their job more seriously if the pay was better at the front desk. If the trainers got more of a percentage they wouldn't want to leave and if the instructors received more money the more classes they taught the more likely they would be not to call out.

    Pros

    close to shopping in better stores

    Cons

    wages suck, trainers are forced to do sales and sell un-proven supplements no better than any other supps on the market, classes are only 30 minutes in length and the management plays childish games with the employees and clientele. One manager was overheard telling an employee it didn't matter if someone bought a membership and never came back as long as crunch got their money. nice business practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to school to learn how to be more service oriented and less company kiss butt

    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.
