In A New York Minute, Crunch Fitness Has Added Three New Locations In NYC

NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Crunch Fitness, the health club chain known for making serious fitness fun and pioneering a philosophy of 'No Judgments,' announces it will swing open the doors to its brand-new, long-awaited outpost in the heart of Chelsea today. This incredible new location is situated in the U.S. headquarters of alternative fashion brand, Diesel, at 220 West 19th St. between 7th and 8th Ave., and its design was inspired by Diesel's vanguard approach to fashion; the space is modern, industrial and most definitely chic. Crunch's newest location in Chelsea marks the brand's third facility to open in the Big Apple in 2012.

"We have been working toward opening a Crunch in Chelsea for quite some time now and couldn't be happier that it is finally happening," said Crunch President, Keith Worts. "Our brand is a perfect fit for Chelsea, where the residents are serious about working out and we know are looking for a best in class facility full of energy with our 'No Judgments' attitude." 

The news of the Chelsea opening comes on the heels of two exciting acquisitions for Crunch, the first at 222 East 34th St., which was formerly a Club H, and the second at 250 West 54th St., previously a Gold's Gym. Both locations received a significant makeover when Crunch stepped in that collectively included over a million dollars in new equipment and improvements. They also now feature a full schedule of Crunch's signature classes, including but not limited to, The Ride, POUND®, LaBlast®, Chisel, Absolution and more.

"These two gyms are perfect additions to the Crunch family. When you take a facility and add Crunch's innovative classes, expert trainers, and passionate and talented staff, these locations went from good to pretty awesome," said Worts. "In today's competitive fitness environment it's rare to see such significant growth like we are having at Crunch right now - quite frankly, we are on a roll."
