    I have been working at Crunch Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Great community and it's a work hard play hard environment. You will absolutely get out what you put in and you can build up a nice little mini business. I learned a lot from the other trainers, all super great people and good at what they do.

    Cons

    Only place to go is management and then its just a numbers game.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat trainers like money making machines.

    I worked at Crunch Fitness full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Met some great people at Crunch over the years. However, most have left the company, unfortunately.

    Cons

    No work / Life balance. No concern for the front line team members. Huge comp plan roll backs. Poor benefits. No 401K. High turnover. Scrupulous sales practices. Our members were not valued, other than their credit cards. Trainers are not compensated for their hours. No quality training and development afforded to team members of all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap and invest in your people. Work harder to retain your top performers. You have to spend money to make money.

    I have been working at Crunch Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule. Fitness Managers don't micromanage as long as you are consistently selling and busy with clients. I have loved being a trainer here.

    Cons

    There is no full time personal training sales guy, so you have to build your book of business from scratch.

    Pros

    Front Desk pushes consults so schedule can fill up quick. Opportunity to teach group classes is a huge plus as well. Free Membership, discount on supplements, and overall a team environment

    Cons

    They take a huge percentage of the training rate, other than that it was a good experience and resume builder.

    Advice to Management

    N/A
