New York, NY - Sept. 4th, 2018 - Crunch Franchise announced today that it has selected Styku as a preferred vendor after testing against a body scanning competitor and then piloting Styku across several health clubs. “We researched this category extensively and we also executed a side-by-side test against the two best options. Styku was clearly more consistent and accurate,” said Craig Pipet-Donat, EVP. According to Pepin-Donat, body composition testing is an important aspect for any results based programming. “Offering our Franchisees a solution for driving Personal Training results through technology was an important decision. Every member has a goal and unless there is a plan to achieve that goal and a proven platform for monitoring and managing results, you’re shooting in the dark,” explained Pepin-Donat.
Crunch piloted Styku in several locations across North America and found promising results.
“Our test clubs showed a double digit increase in Personal Training revenue during the test period and we also had a nice increase in the average dues per member by bundling a free monthly body scan with our results based membership. That enabled us to see benefits on two revenue fronts during the test period. More important is the positive feedback we received from members and staff about the enhanced member experience which has longer term benefits with both membership and Personal Training retention. We’re confident that if executed correctly, and the right staff is in place, a franchisee can expect to have its Styku 3D body scanner pay for itself within the first 90 to 180 days. We’re excited to have Styku as a preferred vendor and look forward to continuing to explore more ways to impact the member experience together,” said Hannah Karass, Director of Personal Training.
Crunch franchise owners will enjoy special pricing as part of this Preferred Vendor relationship. For more information, contact Alicia Lewis at [email protected] or (323) 372-2628 ext. 901.,
