Crunch Gym, LLC faces a proposed class action lawsuit filed by a Florida resident who claims to have received automated text messages from the company without consent.
The 13-page lawsuit says the company sent the plaintiff automated texts soliciting its gym membership services beginning in July 2021 and likely sent similar messages to other consumers. Per the complaint, Crunch Gym’s alleged actions violated the Florida Telephone Solicitation Act (FTSA), which prohibits companies from making automated sales calls and sending texts to consumers without first obtaining their written consent.

The suit claims that the company sent the text messages using equipment that “automatically selected and dialed” the plaintiff’s phone number and the other numbers to which Crunch Gym allegedly sent similar messages.
In early January 2023, the plaintiff received a text message from Crunch Gym that read, “Reach your goals with classes, equipment, personal training & more starting at $9.99/mo! Join by 1/12 for $1 + 1st month FREE at Crunch.com [sic] Text STOP to opt-out,” the case alleges.
The woman claims that she never authorized the company to send her automated text messages, a requirement under the FTSA, the complaint relays. The woman has suffered an invasion of privacy and intrusion as a result of the allegedly unlawful text messages, the filing charges.
The lawsuit looks to represent anyone residing in Florida who has received automated telephonic sales calls or text messages from Crunch Gym since July 1, 2021.
