The Crunch gym launched the online platform Crunch Live to bring its workout classes to people around the world.

However, it can be challenging to find a regimen that works for both individuals in the relationship. That’s why many couples turn to Crunch Live to sample a wide variety of workout videos geared to people of all ages, interests, and fitness levels.

They may want to do a quick 15-minute dance workout in the morning, or they may prefer participating in an hour-long, full-body workout in the evening. During a 90-day free trial, members can access all 85+ workout videos on the Crunch Live platform, exploring different types of workouts until they find their sweet spot.

Crunch Live members can access the workout videos via their mobile devices, and they can stream them on their televisions at home by using AppleTV or Roku.

“Here at Crunch we believe in a culture of community, empowerment, and no judgments,” said Brookelyn Suddell, Director of Group Fitness Strategy & Development at Crunch Live. “So when we decided to enter the digital space, we tried our best to make sure that our core values you experience in our gyms, translated into the Crunch Live platform as well.”

The Online Platform Promotes a Fun Workout Experience

The Crunch gym has been making fitness fun since 1989, and now its an online portal of workouts has continued that good work.

Crunch offers several gym membership packages that include access to Crunch Live’s impressive library of workout videos. But you don’t have to be a gym member to take part in the fun. Many at-home workout enthusiasts start with a free trial to see what Crunch Live is like, and then they transition into a monthly or annual membership plan.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Crunch Live began offering an extended 90-day free trial to give people stuck at home a boost and encourage staying active without having to go to a physical gym.

Crunch Live Unfiltered is a series that began in April 2020 when stay-at-home orders meant many people couldn’t make it to the gym. The group fitness instructors taught classes from their own homes and showed that you don’t need a lot of space to maintain a good workout regimen.

The Crunch Live platform has a variety of class formats to suit people of all types. Its Quickie lessons are all under 15-minutes, while the Total Body Workout classes last over an hour. The video workouts include strength-building classes, yoga lessons, dance workouts, high-intensity interval classes, and other programs that have been popular at local Crunch gyms.

“We have found that when our members can’t make it to their favorite classes or into the gym for a workout, they look to Crunch Live for a good sweat-sesh,” Brookelyn said. “I believe that Crunch Live does serve up the same fun experience that Crunch is known for.”

Brookelyn recommended that beginners start with the Cardio Tai Box, Ab Attack, or Yoga Body Sculpt classes, all of which are fan favorites and offer modifications for all skill levels. Many couples take part in Crunch Live’s classes as a way of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and relationship.

“Personally, my husband and I typically pick out a Quickie video and do that together at the beginning or end of our own workouts,” Brookelyn said. “Which is a nice way to bond while not feeling like we sacrificed our own workout preferences.”
