    I have been working at Crunch Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Overall nice company to work for. They honestly like employees to go beyond general expectations for members and because you are treated decently, you tend to want to go the extra mile. For the most part you feel appreciated, however, in sales along with operations , you're as good as your last success.

    Cons

    The fitness industry has changed tremendously over the last 3yrs. enabling many different choices at much lower prices. Though Crunch emphasizes customer service, consumers are educating themselves to make different choices when it comes to choosing their workout space, which may not includes spending over $100 per month. With that said there's a lot of "hurry up and wait" going on, so you must prospect really diligently and work referrals. People aren't walking through the door like back in the day and that can make it extremely difficult to make your monthly goals and sell personal training, then because of these factors, making ends meet has been proving more and more discouraging. Due to pay and bonus structures, also, where the gym you are working is located, management seems to make more money and stay longer i.e. General Managers, Regional Managers, Personal Training Managers, Membership Directors.

    Advice to Management

    Crunch should admit to their employees that as an corporation they do understand that the fitness industry has changed and since movement can only happen if a new location is opened or someone leaves, the compensation packages need to change and regular reviews need to be conducted in order to allow personal and professional growth. Currently they are concentrating on getting new investors and if something doesn't change soon, they'll have few employees for the new investors.

    Pros

    The gym was nice. Good machines and equipment.

    Cons

    I was forced to push supplements to people that don't need it. Many are just pure crap. Management only worried about numbers and there's a lot of favoritism. They also hired a lot of trainers that have questionable backgrounds. I know that those of us with more education weren't very satisfied with this place. I lasted a bit longer than many of them, but I was only doing it as a side job for fun.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about numbers and focus on your staff and members first.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and quality training equipment. You can personalize your training style to how you like to train and not stuck to a cookie cutter training style.

    Cons

    Many managers can be very "toxic" for the lower staff. Instead of training helping trainers that need help they are to busy worrying about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the team and not the numbers. You grow your team and the numbers will follow. If you just sit there and complain about making your quota, you will not advance your team and the same problems will persist.

    Pros

    Fair pay, some great talent in management, great place to get started if you've never had experience in the fitness industry.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and employees, not a lot of formal training, at times you will be doing the jobs of the upper management. Unprofessional behavior on multiple counts.

    Advice to Management

    Get professional. Have a more unified system of training for employees for better retention. Stop harassing employees simply because you do not like that they are not best friends with you. Specifically geared towards the franchise.
