Crunch, D.O.A. on Sunset Boulevard
Crunch is D.O.A. (dead on arrival.) If you like having sxxx with dead gyms (the equipment is filthy / broken) or near dead people (it's the afternoon of the Living Dead in the steam room), you will love Crunch.
In June, 2009, Crunch entered bankruptcy due to ""loss of members."" This would come as no surprise to anyone who's fled Crunch's disease ridden crib. There are about a thousand reasons why anyone should avoid Crunch like the plague (#1 being the fact, you'll probably catch the plague) but here's the top ten:
One, MSRA - Staph infections. Crunch members could possibly contract one or all of those life-threatening diseases due to the filthy locker-room/shower area & equipment;
Two, dreadful music that's dated and earsplitting. At Crunch, it's the same ten songs, over and over and over, at levels louder than a plane flying overhead.
Third, nightmare parking. Put away some extra cash for the cost of lost (or, stolen) tickets at Crunch.
Four, non-existant security. The locker room's totally unsupervised
Five, the new Crunch management busy trying to sell memberships. And, when you ask them for help or to possibly fix equipment, they'll ""get right back to you"" or suggest you, ""fill out a form."" Rigggghhhhttttt.... you can take a hundred cardio classes but nothing's going to give you the lung capacity to hold your breath THAT long.
