• CLUB FOCUS: CRUNCH Sunset Blvd Sinks It’s Teeth Into The Suunto Fitness Solutionon April 25th, 2012 at 5:32 pm
Crunch Sunset is, in their own words a “quintessentially cool Hollywood gym; a place to see and be seen as much as it is a place to workout…Members here are as electric as the Strip itself and know how to work a room, mingling while they move their bodies.” A premier fitness centre using Suunto Fitness Solution to it’s full potential is a sight to behold, and their Tommy Woelfel filled us in!
“Using the Suunto technology has not only provided the members with a new, exciting, colorful and visual way to learn about incorporating heart rate training into their workouts, it has forced me
as an instructor to learn more and become a better instructor! I love it!”
Crunch – Sunset has incorporated the Suunto Fitness Solution technology in two ways:
The Red Line Ride is a class where members can borrow a heart rate monitor from the gym and see their heart rates projected on a screen at the front of the class. A nickname is used so that no one feels self-conscious about having their personal information projected in such a way. Tommy coaches a ride that references the heart rates and corresponding color zones (percentages of a given maximum heart rate). Members are encouraged (but not required) to purchase their own heart rate monitor.
Those with their own belts will receive an email with detailed results of the Ride. In addition, the details will also be automatically uploaded to the member’s profile on the website, Movescount.com where even more information and detailed comparisons can be viewed!
Periodically, Crunch will host a CAMP CRUNCH: Red Line Ride 6-Week Intensive. This is a program where a limited number of members sign up for 2 semi-private classes per week. These classes provide more personal attention by an instructor trained to use the Suunto Fitness Solution technology. Additional articles and resources are provided to the participants.
“The customer feedback has been amazing! In the CAMP CRUNCH: Red Line Ride 6-Week Intensive, almost half of the participants in the initial program signed up for the second offering! One of the participants used to hate spinning. Now, she can’t wait to get into class and take her heart rate into the red!”
The CAMP CRUNCH: Red Line Ride Intensives and the Red Line Ride classes have provided Crunch with a new program and a new class to help keep members excited about Crunch and it’s classes.
“I am continuously excited by our members’ desire to learn more. I am constantly challenged to continue providing the best and most intense classes using the Suunto Fitness Solution technology. I am always rewarded as an instructor by the comments, results, changes in lifestyle and workouts, and the increased information that members enjoy and share with me.”
