RESTON - Crunch Fitness at Reston Town Center expects 150 new members to join in January to conquer their 2017 New Year’s fitness resolutions. But, statistically speaking, 85 percent of those people will stop within the first 90 days, according to Jamie Toombs, the gym’s general manager.

It’s Toombs goal to make sure his gym beats the industry average and to keep these new members—many of whom will be joining a gym for the first time in their lives—comfortable so they stay past 90 days.

By 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 30, 2016, 151 of the gym’s 2,500 members had stopped by to work out, on track to increase by the New Year.

“People are motivated and may go too hard, too fast,” Toombs says. “It’s more about starting and building so you don’t burn out and plateau.”

Crunch gives new members a body assessment and two complimentary sessions with a personal trainer to make the gym a little less intimidating.
