Crunch Fitness prides itself on offering an inclusive, positive space to work out how you like to work out — whether that be with cardio equipment, heavy weights, group classes, personal training, or some combination of those.

They have five locations in the Buffalo area, and some amenities vary by location, but in general they offer:

  • A wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment, including Olympic lifting platforms, resistance machines, treadmills, stepmills, ellipticals, and stationary bikes.
  • Functional training areas with turf in all locations.
  • Group fitness classes, including indoor cycling and advanced HIIT classes at select locations.
  • Women’s only areas in most locations.
  • Certified personal trainers.

In addition, their Relax & Recover services might include tanning beds or stand-up tanning booths, HydroMassage beds, and saunas.

You get to pick the level of membership that's right for your goals and budget, too. Month-to-month memberships start at $14.99 with no long-term commitment, but members can get unlimited group fitness classes with the Peak membership or purchase a personal training package for that one-on-one attention.

They offer a wide variety of classes, but especially popular are their high-intensity interval training classes, or HIIT. The "unique, results-driven HIIT workouts torch fat, sculpt muscle, and increase metabolism, burning calories long after you stop sweating," as they explain on their website.

On top of all that, Crunch Fitness is a proud partner of the Buffalo Bills and often offers special ticket giveaways and exclusive Bills’ experiences to members.
