If there were zero stars available that is what I would give this gym. The place is dark, dreary, and VERY overcrowed. i was there Tuesday after work and couldn't even get on a treadmill. What is that all about.? I have seen RAVE reviews of other locations. I think that those of us stuck with memberships in a nasty gym should get a discount on our monthly dues. Also, if Crunch reads this, how about getting a proper scale for the ladies locker room? BTW- I saw the Jan 19th post about no lines is BS. Yet again, I was unable to get a treadmill. Maybe if I was a stay at home mom I could avoid crowds, alas, I am just a poor working stiff.

I recently Joined CRUNCH on the upper west side, located on 83rd & Amsterdam Ave. I must say, their quality of equipment, trainers, and the combination of over 70 classes a week were a perfect fit for my needs, My member advisor also mentioned how they recently renovated the location, and it has 4 Group fitness studio's which we can use to stretch and ETC. I have also used thier location with a pool on 42nd street which is right by my job, so its conveniant as well. The best thing about 83rd Street CRUNCH is when I come in during prime time, IT""S NOT CROWDED, ....which i must say is amazing Compared to the hords of people you see @ NYSC from 5-9pm. Overall, I am pleased with my decision to join, factoring in price(I payed no enrollment OR dues this month!), hours (5:30am -11pm), and the relative emptiness for a gym in manhattan. I definitely reccommend this club if you are an UWS Resident.

I have been a member of the 83rd St. crunch for almost 5 years, and since they lost half of their gym space recently, the quality of the gym has plummetted. Cardio machines are squished together in high traffic areas. If you want to stretch after your workout - hopefully you enjoy doing this between weight machines without a mat and people stepping over you (I've been relegated to doing this at least 3 times in the past 2 months), or if you are lucky enough to find a spot to stretch, trainers will likely ask you to move, since they take priority to any open spaces. And unless you work out at 2pm or another really off time, don't plan on doing any floor exercises as there is no space any where to do these. Do not join this gym, you will not get your money's worth. The only perk is an updated bathroom/spa area (which does not help me get in shape) and the group exercise rooms have been updated. It is very disappointing as I used to love this gym, but am now looking around for an alternative spot to work out.
