Crunch Fitness Killeen Announces New Managing Partner Chris Olsen

Crunch Fitness is proud to announce that Chris Olsen has been selected as the new Managing Partner of Crunch Fitness Killeen. Chris has proven energy, passion, and commitment to the care of his members and team members in the Killeen community.

“Our whole belief in business is giving people an opportunity to grow as entrepreneurs. Lindsey shares the Crunch company values and has a vision to take our gym in Longview to the next level,” Crunch Austin Group CEO Tony Hartl said.

As Managing Partner, Chris will be an investor in Crunch Killeen and will be responsible for overseeing the operation and performance of the business.

Crunch Killeen is a $3M facility with over 28,000 square feet of awesomeness and is known for its innovative group fitness programming. Crunch offers a wide range of classes every week including BodyWeb with TRX®, Zumba®, Cardio Tai Box, Yoga Body Sculpt, Fat Burning Pilates and more in the gym’s group fitness studio.

It’s also a place where great talent is discovered, cultivated, and elevated. At Crunch, entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to grow and thrive in the gym through our Managing Partner program. In the end, it’s not the size of the gym, the quality of the amenities, or even the marketing budget that puts Crunch on a whole other level than other fitness companies. It’s choosing the right people for the right positions that gives Crunch the greatest strategic advantage.

“I realized a long time ago that there is no one way to hire —no predictable or scientific approach to choosing leaders.” Hartl said. “I trust my gut, and look for combinations of empathy, coachability, and resilience. Above all else, we want passionate people who are dedicated to change and improve the lives of our members. Our Managing Partners make work and passion one in the same.”
