Flexible Membership Options
Crunch offers the most bang-for-the-buck! For $9.99, members get access to state-of-the-art equipment, online nutrition and one free Personal Training session. But we didn’t stop there.

Our HIITZone advanced group training classes, with 4 diverse offerings and hundreds of exercise combinations, is only available with our most premium membership.
Gym-azing Club Design
We put a lot of thought into the design of our gym, with the right amount of cardio and strength-training equipment, expansive functional/small-group/personal training areas, large group fitness rooms, indoor cycling studio, and awesome locker rooms with showers. Our members love it but with a cost-to-build designed to help you deliver a strong ROIC, you might love it even more.
We’re known for making serious fitness fun! That’s half the battle in keeping new members engaged, motivated and loyal. We also provide other tools to help retain Crunch’s member base.
Member Engagement Programs
From supporting local partnerships, to in-club events, national promotions and programs, we help our clubs provide added value to Crunch members. Our online portal lets members track their workout progress, manage their account and see upcoming class schedules.
Revenue from personal training, small-group training, retail, and membership plan upgrades maximize the lifetime value of a member. More importantly, these programs can also help your members build healthier lifestyles.

Making Serious Fitness Fun
Let’s face it, working out is hard. We know that, which is why Crunch is designed to motivate, through a fun and engaging experience.
