NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Crunch Fitness announces the continued expansion of their fitness empire with two exciting new locations in Hoboken and on W. 23rd St. in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. With the opening of these two new clubs, Crunch now has 13 locations throughout the New York Metro area. The gym brand that built their reputation on innovation in the industry is also planning on adding several lower-priced, Essential gyms located in the outer boroughs in the coming months. This rapid expansion is giving more and more people a taste of Crunch's unique approach to making fitness fun.
"Expanding the Crunch footprint to open a second location in Chelsea and our first in Hoboken is really a milestone for us," said Crunch CEO, Keith Worts. "The individual spirit and energy of each neighborhood resonates with the Crunch brand in a special way and we look forward to welcoming an entirely new member base that will definitely respond to the Crunch experience."
Crunch Hoboken was formerly occupied by Club H Fitness and is located at 110 Sinatra Dr. across from Pier A Park, just three blocks away from the Hoboken Terminal – making it a prime location for Manhattan commuters. The club currently has a full schedule of Crunch's signature classes and a team of certified personal trainers. In the coming months, the club will undergo extensive upgrades, including a dedicated ride studio, functional training area and new state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment. The renovations and new equipment will provide members with a slew of ways to get a sweat on, and have some fun while they do- all in a top-notch facility in the very near future.
Located at 225 West 23rd St., Crunch W. 23rd St. swung its doors open for workouts this past Saturday to an updated and revamped 21,000 square foot facility. Previously a David Barton Gym, the club joins Crunch W. 19th St. as the second location to open in the vibrant Chelsea neighborhood in the past year. The Crunch 23rd St. is loaded to the brim with a full line of totally brand-new equipment, strength, cardio, functional training, TRX® and more. This location also has a dedicated ride studio, with 30 all new Spinner® Blade ION bikes and a Zen-like yoga studio so new members can get their ride and their "ohm" on in any of Crunch's signature classes.
