For the cost of the gym i expected something much better. This gym at this location is dark, very small and not well maintain. It is SUPER crowded to the point that there are not enough lockers to use. The machines are on top on each other and workign out d hard as you are almsot touching the person next to you. There is no space to really do your won thing adn strech. The classses are packed, machines are not working....it is really not worth the money. Not this location at least.
I have been going to this gym for almost 3 years and am pretty satisfied. Whether you like weight lifting or cardio, they have all the necessary equipment for you. I sometimes watch the trainers; they get pretty creative to keep the workouts for their clients interesting. I usually work out on my own. Trainers may come up and engage in friendly conversation, and I like that they are not pushy about you letting them train you. They know when you are ready you will find them.
The most important reason I haven't switched gyms in years is that the people who work there make you feel welcome. Rosa, the towel lady, who always has a smile on her face, Angie at the front desk; they are the ones you see first when you drag yourself in at the crack of dawn. They don't judge you they are just nice.
Are there more elaborate gyms out there? Sure. Are there cheaper gyms out there? You bet. But if you want a gym that lets you be who you are without pushing their classes or over-priced products on you, I think you'd enjoy Crunch.

I jhave been going to crunch for years, they are the best gyms in the city. Always clean and friendly. The spin class is the BEST I have been to, I go 2x week, forgot the lady's name who teaches but she rocks. Makes you want to get out of bed just to go there. Five stars!
