  1. These guys rip off there own customers by changing the name of the club in the Bay area to City Sport Club  and requiring LA fitness members to pay a cover charge.   Its owned by the same people, has the same sh#t, yet they charge 5 dollars everyday. If i'm on vacation in the bay area and decide to workout one week is 35 dollars. Who would want to pay 30 dollars a month to use 3 clubs. They get charged more to use other gyms  in their own state.
         Fuck La fitness, they closed the gym in El Cajon. Now i have to drive 17 miles to National city or 18 miles to Kearny Mesa. They will not refund my money and i still have 7 months left on my contract. Apparently it says your're willing to drive 25 miles in the contract, so they can shut down your local gym anytime and your FUCKED!!!

  2. Crunch has been the best civilian gym I can find. Very advantageous for powerlifters. For only $10, there's 6 deadlift platforms, squat racks, and benches. Dumbbells up to 125. Only gym at this price I can find that let's you deadlift heavy weight, shoes off if you want, chalk, everything. They have belts and chain belts. Hydromassage if you pay a little more. Only problem is it gets pretty busy after 4pm on week days. I find myself waiting in line for one of those 6 racks if I go at that time.

  3. I go to the Crunch Fitness in Vista – CA. Great place and friendly staff. Another thing I like about the location of Crunch Vista is the fact it's next to Frazier Farms. No fast food joint within visual range. Just a great salad bar and deli for a healthy sandwich.

  4. I go to crunch. I love it. But I did temp move for a job and not all crunch gyms are the same. I found out there are corporate crunch and franchise crunch. I learned to stick to corporate crunch.

  5. Thanks for the review! I know this is old but how are the quality of the classes? I hated LA Fitness class. Flakier average instructors & classes ever. Maybe like 1-2 decent classes but it would be like 10 miles away. Tia.

  6. You will get what you pay for at crunch. Low prices for peak membership equals cheap and inexperienced instructors. Crunch is one of the only fitness center that hires uncertified gx instructors to teach classes that have no experience teaching. They only ask their instructors to watch a 30 minute video..pass a ridiculously test that they answer for you..and then call you qualified to teach that class to it's members. Like I get what you pay for.

  7. Compared to Workout Anytime franchise (they have machines where a spotter would normally be on a bench station), Crunch is not cluttered- at least the ones in Atlanta aren't.

  8. The new Crunch that was just built in my town has fixed the clutter problem that is very apparent in the other crunch gyms, all the equipment is lined up into lines and sectioned off according to category (cardio, weights, ect). Also, nice review man, I'm currently in 10th grade and I needed to find a gym to workout in in between wrestling seasons and the school gym wasn't cutting it, this review helped me in making my decision in choosing crunch, which is perfect for someone like me.

  9. Crunch in D.C. is the worst! The instructors are rude and disrespectful – they make fun of you if you cannot keep up. They do not want to cancel my membership and keep charging my card. I've been arguing with them for months. Stay away!

  10. how would you rate the squat racks and equipment for deadlifts? I'm considering switching from 24 hours. I love 24 hour fitness but I'm trying to save some money and see if I can go to a more affordable gym

  11. good review! can you comment on your opinion of the weight plates? heavier? lighter? than other competing gyms? to me, they felt heavier and then benches seemed narrower. thoughts? thanks.
