Crunch Fitness was established as a single location in 1989 and today has about 225 clubs, mostly in large metropolitan areas. The company operates under two brands. Crunch Fitness, which is the standard club, and Crunch Signature, which offers a few more upscale amenities. Aside from the variation in facilities and programs, there are different membership levels at each as well.
For this reason, it makes sense to investigate all this variety before making a commitment. Crunch Fitness makes it easy to sample by providing guest passes that allow access to all facilities of a particular club. This article will explain the types of passes available, how to apply for each, and any guest pass fees that may exist.
|Type of Guest Pass||Guest Pass Length||Guest Pass Age Requirements||Guest Pass ID Required||Credit Card Required|
|Guest Pass (Free)||1-day||18||YES||NO|
|Bring a Guest||1-day||18||YES||NO|
The above table shows the two guest passes available at the club. However, the procedures may vary slightly depending on the location you choose. To review the specific policies at your local club and to apply for the guest pass, visit the free trial page.
The 1-Day free guest pass is the standard across the entire Crunch Fitness franchise. You can use the pass at any location but you must pick your home club. You can obtain this pass in just a few steps. Go to the Crunch Fitness website and click on the “Free Trial” link. Complete the form by providing your name, email address, and phone number. Choose the location in which you are interested and click “Submit”. You will receive your pass via email so be sure that your address is accurate. Print the pass and present it with your ID at the desk of your local club. Take advantage of your free day and use all the amenities of your club so you can be sure if Crunch Fitness is right for you.
Refer a Friend Pass
Crunch Fitness does have a “Bring a Friend” program but only for its corporate members. Any corporate member may bring a guest to work out with them and that guest will have access to all the amenities of that club. The member must provide notice and accompany the guest, and the guest must check in at the service desk and present an ID. For each guest who purchases at least a six-month membership, the current member receives a month for free. Through this rewards program, a member could workout for an entire year without paying monthly dues.
Crunch Fitness Pass Benefits
The obvious benefit for the guest who uses either of the above day passes is the opportunity to explore a particular club and speak with the staff and trainers before making a membership commitment. The guest receives an orientation tour in order to become more familiar with the club. With such a variety of programs and classes, you can probably find a combination of amenities that work for you. For the current member, the Bring a Guest program provides an opportunity to workout with a friend and possibly earn free months of membership. Since amenities vary by location, you should check all the clubs near you before deciding which to attend.
