Crunch opens upstate N.Y. location

Crunch, the health club chain known for its “No Judgments” philosophy and blending of fitness and entertainment, opened its first Hudson Valley, N.Y., location in June.

Located in Poughkeepsie, the 22,000-square-foot, two-story facility features new state-of-the art fitness equipment, supervised by nationally certified personal trainers; group fitness classes, including BodyWeb with TRX, BOSU Bootcamp, Zumba, and more; fully appointed locker rooms; a 2,700-square-foot group fitness studio; and Kids Crunch childcare. An online fitness and nutrition program powered by dotFIT, free tanning, and HydroMassage also are available.

“There’s no other fitness facility available that offers this much variety and value to its members,” says Crunch Poughkeepsie franchisee, Ed Kreuscher, a 20-year fitness industry veteran.

Headquartered in New York City, Crunch serves over 300,000 members with 84 gyms worldwide, including 53 franchise locations throughout the U.S. and Australia.
