Some may call it a tagline, but for us, it’s a way of life. It’s our Monday-thru-every-day mantra. An unfiltered philosophy that drives us to create a community and a gym for all.
No judgments means room for everyone, regardless of shape, size, age, race, gender or fitness level. No matter your workout of choice, we want you to feel good while reaching your goals. Join the Fun
There are no judgments here – No too much or not enough. No glares of disapproval. Here we keep open minds. We are nurturers. We seek only to encourage, empower and entertain. There is no one type. There is no one reason. There is no one way.
What we are is a diverse community; what we have is a culture of fun; what there is, is room for everyone: all kinds of people with all kinds of goals who’ve chosen to come reach them with us.
Crunch. No Judgments.
Why We Do What We Do
We started modestly as one small gym in a humble basement studio in New York City’s East Village in 1989 as a welcoming place for a diverse group of people to get fit. While we believe in the power of fitness to improve lives, we also know exercise is hard work and everyone can use a little more motivation. So we’ve fused fitness and entertainment so that we can make serious exercise fun.

There are no judgments here – No too much or not enough. No glares of disapproval. Here we keep open minds. We are nurturers. We seek only to encourage, empower and entertain. There is no one type. There is no one reason. There is no one way. What we are is a diverse community; what we have is a culture of fun; what there is, is room for everyone: all kinds of people with all kinds of goals who’ve chosen to come reach them with us.
Crunch. No Judgments.
Of all the great histories of all the great health clubs, Crunch’s begins rather inauspiciously: in a basement level aerobics studio in New York City’s East Village circa 1989. This, our first location, had no locker rooms, the air conditioning didn’t work and after hours break-ins were perennial events.
However, while we lacked the resources to equip the gym with some basic amenities and strong locks we were on an important mission – to make exercise fun. And, accomplishing this mission meant doing away with traditional notions of what a ‘serious’ workout should be. What we did was invite a highly creative group of fitness instructors with a wide range of expertise to collaborate with us. The result was the development of challenging programming with a completely fresh slant. Offerings like Hip-Hop Aerobics, Co-Ed Action Wrestling and Cyked Yoga Cycling were introduced and, along with others, became the embodiment of this new approach.
The response was overwhelmingly positive, even by jaded New York standards. Members embraced these new kinds of classes and began to tell their friends about them who, in turn, told their friends who, in turn told their friends (and so on and so on). Soon, lots of people were coming to experience Crunch’s unconventional new take on traditional fitness.
Fast-forward, more than two decades later, Crunch is still a gym that believes in making serious exercise fun by fusing fitness and entertainment and holding true to a philosophy of No Judgments.
