Why have you stayed with Crunch?

April 9, 2024

Tara Crosby, District Sales Manager: Frank P is one of the reasons, as he’s the best boss I’ve ever worked for. I also love what I do every day, and I love the Crunch brand and how it aligns with my own cares and values. I’ve grown with and up with the company, and in doing so, I’ve been able to contribute to team members and the organization through the use of my skillsets and commitment to help others.

Juan M. Villafranca, Operations Manager: My co-workers are why I’ve been with Crunch since 2007.

Dianne Clemente, Equipment & Projects Manager: Having a different job every few years has really kept my interest here. I was first hired to work the front desk, and six months later, I was an MOD. Then, one year later, I saw another promotion and then another promotion. I spent many times crossing departments, which included operations, group fitness, facilities, and construction.

Sarah Sung, Group Fitness Instructor: The members are great. In SF, many of the gyms are in neighborhoods, so the community we build in class is really special. As an instructor, I feel encouraged and supported all the way around.

Bishop Garland, Group Fitness Instructor: They have a fairly solid competitive wage, and the members have always been good to me.

Victoria Fernans-Moore, Group Fitness Instructor: I embrace the fact that Crunch was always looking for new ways to bring people into fitness. I feel they were very innovative and creative, and I especially like the slogan “No Judgments.” Although many gyms opened in South Beach, I stayed with Crunch for these reasons and for the fantastic dance floor we have in our beautiful studio.

Louis Rosales, District Sales Manager: Besides the craziness of loving the cool atmosphere, the best answer is that I love working for someone (Frank P) who cares for his employees. I have loyalty to the brand.

Heinz Altieri, Group Fitness Instructor: I have been teaching for Crunch for “25” years. I stay for the clients who have been with me since day one. I am without a doubt one of the toughest instructors anywhere – my classes are filled and we sweat like crazy. Like I said, I love my students, and I sweat blood for them.

Danielle Wettan, Group Fitness Instructor: I’ve stayed with Crunch because I love what I do. I love the vibe, and Crunch is the best!

Patty Yuen, Group Fitness Instructor: I still am proud to be at a gym whose tagline is “No Judgments.” I also have the best co-workers – the group fitness family is amazing! The encouragement to learn new modalities and to learn from each other really makes it feel like a family.
