    Pros

    I would enjoy taking a lunch whenever was necessary. Meeting new people week after week, building relationships with multiple companies.

    Cons

    The pay was very low for the amount of work we did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time with sales reps. Teach the business behind the sales.

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you're motivated, you'll meet a lot of great clients. Their compensation program is better than most gyms in the area

    Cons

    In order to earn a high salary, you'll have to basically give up your life.. The burn out factor is very real here.. Managment micromanages like crazy always demanding more of your time, usually for free, and will tell you you're not doing enough. This of course is absurd because it's 100% commission and they only pay you for what you train. Management will undercut your buisness and make special deals with your clients, at you expense, to hit their bottom line for the month. There have also been issues with their payroll department short changing paychecks suspiciously when the club is struggling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings instead of trash and you'll see a better outcome

    Pros

    Very fun, upbeat environment, lots of interaction with members. Members are easy to talk to and fun to be around. Offer great classes and personal trainers are amazing. I do recommend for a entry level position.

    Cons

    The pay is low compared to the average sales person in a Health Club in the DC area. Not a lot of growth within the company.

    Pros

    Variety of classes which is great for members. It's an upbeat space and environment so far from what I've witnessed.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem to be much care for customer service in the brooklyn area. I got a very bad impression when I first spoke to one of the trainers there.

    Pros

    You are helping people get fit

    Cons

    There is no real cohesion is management, the core values are great but they do not come to life in the company culture. Staff are not valued at all. There is high turnover, probably due to the way they treat employees. There was no real culture and the training is very looses and sub-par. There is high pressure to hit numbers, which is the normal, but if you don't hit don't think you will get any help. Management is very inconsistant. The idea of the Brand is great, but reality is it is the worst company I have ever had the experience of witnessing or working at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over. Bring a back the spirit OF LEADERSHIP and care about your employees. Have a consistent way of doing things.

    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.

    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.
