Crunch Franchise is launching a new training center in Jacksonville, Florida.

“There really is nothing quite like the level of training, development and support we provide to our franchise network here at Crunch,” said Craig Pepin-Donat, executive vice president of Crunch. “The investment in our National Training Center has dramatically increased the support we provide to our franchise partners and their teams. Our goal is to create as many training ‘touch points’ as possible from the time they sign a lease, move into pre-sale and construction, and then into a fully operational gym.”

The National Crunch Training Center is part of Crunch University, which offers onboarding and training programs. It’s the setting for hands-on classroom and multi-day classroom training and development sessions for franchise owners, executives, general managers, member service representatives, trainers and cleaning staff. .

Fitness trainers and class instructors receive specialized training through exclusive classes developed by Crunch for Crunch and accredited by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This training also provides Team Crunch members with continuing education units toward their certifications and includes official accreditations for HIITZone™, Ride Studio, group fitness, personal training, and nutrition.

The opening of the National Training Center coincides with the launch of “Crunch Connected”, the brand’s comprehensive approach to online learning management system program, classroom training, webinar series and team communities to share best practices. The platform also offers additional support, resources, and networking opportunities that all members of the Crunch System team can access 24/7.

The Crunch Franchise Training Center is located at 13475 Atlantic Blvd. in Jacksonville, Florida. Learn more about the Crunch franchise at
