Crunch Fitness Is Coming to Norwood!


Crunch Fitness is opening up in Norwood on Webster Avenue and 205th Street according to its website.

This is the 2nd Bronx location for the popular and full service gym. This past summer, Crunch Fitness signed a lease for a massive 18,000 square foot space at the recently opened luxury boutique Opera House Hotel in Melrose on 149th Street.

After being neglected for so many years by national fitness chains, the Bronx has seen an explosion of interest in bringing such franchises to the borough. Melrose alone saw 1 Planet Fitness and 2 Blink Fitness locations opening up within an 18 month period.

These same no frills affordable chains have propagated across the borough as well. Several years ago New York Sports Club was the first full service gym to open, however, it’s Morris Park location made it inaccessible to most Bronxites without a car as it is not easily reached by subway.

The Crunch Fitness at the Opera House Hotel will be the borough’s FIRST full service high end gym that’s accessible subway as it will be located 1.5 blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at 3rd Ave and 149th Street.

The confidence that such chains have in the Bronx is proof that we are a diverse enough borough to support all ranges of services.

Make sure you sign up to be notified on the opening of Crunch Norwood!

Time is running out on signing up for an early bird $9.95/month special!
