What to say about Crave Fitness. They are the best I have found in both instructors, and instruction. I have been a member of countless gyms, and dojos from Miami to Northeastern Massachusetts, and have never come across greater expertise in such a perfect blend of old school and new school training.
I contacted Yaniv Rosenberg (owner, trainer, instructor) roughly six months ago out of desperation. I was struck by a drunk driver almost 4 years ago, where I sustained 10 herniated discs, and a protrusion, and was barely able to get out of bed by the time I contacted him. I engaged in the usual strategy of physical therapy in hopes of alleviating the discomfort typically associated with injuries of this kind. I unfortunately continued to deteriorate as the medical professionals warned me that I most likely would. Most people under similar circumstances will seek out the opinions of one or two medical professionals for treatment options, I consulted five. The assessment came back the same from all of them, a hopeless case. They offered to fuse the discs from L 1 to C5, and were willing to testify on my behalf to help me to get on disability. This was not an option for me, there had to be another way. In the event that something like this has never happened to you, or anyone you know, you can, and most likely will lose everything. (Don't count on your insurance company to help, they are not your friends) It might surprise you how many people will walk away from you after such an accident. It might also surprise you to learn how many businesses such as yoga studios, or massage therapists want nothing to do with you, stating things like "we don't have a program, or treatment for those kind of injuries here." I was not turned away at Crave, not by the owner, not by his wonderful family, and not by the students that study there. After six months I am grateful to be able to engage in activities that you take for granted, such as being able to mow the yard, being able to play catch with my son, and the very real possibility of being able to use the master's degree I have been pursuing by actually working in the field. I owe all of this to all of the amazing people I am training with at Crave.
this place is awesome!! i would recommend to anyone. I already reach my weight goal in just 3 months from 210lbs-179lbs. extremely happy with this gym and instructors never gets boring!!
Crave Fitness and Sensei Yaniv have helped me so much reach my fitness goals. Furthermore my confidence has sky rocked since i have been taking the Krav Maga classes. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants results!
BUYER BEWARE!! I urge anyone thinking of doing business with these people to read the contract fully before signing up (unlike me and my costly mistake)!! In fact ASK for a week trial membership and a copy of the contract to read it at home to be sure this is the type of place you want to sign up for. I signed up for a year contract and went to two classes before I realized the limited schedule of classes they had didn’t work for me, TOO LATE and TOO BAD!! The OWNER said I had to pay the contract cancelation fee (which is 25%) of the contract value; I was out $475 (plus the $100 Admin fee and $150 for the first month which I paid on the first class). This is a small business and the owner/sansei wouldn’t cut a break. We are not talking about a huge corporation; we are talking about a small business in Plantation, FL!! I have never written a bad review on any small business because I know the impact it makes on me as a consumer, however if I can prevent someone from making my mistake, my $600plus would not go in vein. To add Insult to injury the owners “office manager” leaves me a threatening voice mail telling me how they are going send me to collections even after I paid the cancelation fee and complied with their ridiculous certified mail “termination letter”! I have all the saved emails, voice mail, copies of checks and certified mail receipts to prove this entire review. So, Buyer BEWARE!!
One of the best decisions I've ever made! – I am a student at FAU and I took a trial class at Crave Fitness about 4 months ago and have been going ever since. The instructors are friendly, professional, helpful, and always give 110%.
Since I've started, I've lost over 40 net pounds, put on plenty of muscle, toned up like I never would have imagined possible. I've had to go shopping twice for new clothes because the old ones didn't fit anymore; I feel like an entirely different person then when I started - I have more energy, more confidence, and less stress.
I've even been able to compete at a tournament with the skills learned during the Jiu Jitsu and Grappling classes - something I'd never have imagined being able to do. The instructors do their best to make sure it never gets boring or routine. We play tug of war, have bear crawl races, and partner challenges. They really care about your progress towards your goals and will help get you there.
It really is a fantastic, positive environment that I would recommend to everyone that wants to bring a change to their lives.
If you do stop by, find someone named Ryan and say hello, I'll be there working out with the group and having a blast doing it.
don't waste your money – Owner does not seem to have much physiological knowledge of the human body. Sessions are more geared to the "football player" type workout. Puts on television with movies playing during workouts (and watches them). Was injured two times during training sessions--told him that something was hurting but not smart enough to realize what he was doing was unsafe. Also, will try to tell you that he never received a message to cancel sessions and then subtracts the full price from your payment. Would not recommend him to anyone, especially a female. An absolute disappointment and a total waste of money.
great workouts – the Aikido class was great. I learned so much in that class.
