PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Renowned gym chain Crunch Fitness is proud to announce the February 2022 opening of its 400th location in San Angelo, Texas. With this opening, Crunch secures its place as the number one gym brand in the high-value, low price category.

In addition to the highly anticipated opening of its 400th club, Crunch has continued to see rapid expansion in memberships. As of October 2020, Crunch Franchise has exceeded 128% of pre-pandemic membership levels, significantly outpacing the industry at large, with its closest competitor in the space recently announcing a 97% return to pre-pandemic membership. Crunch was the only major brand in the industry to grow throughout the pandemic, in a period that the global health and fitness association, IHRSA, reported that 22% of the fitness industry closed.

“We are proud of reaching the 400th Crunch gym milestone and the momentum we have maintained, despite the many challenges that the pandemic posed on the fitness industry,” said Ben Midgley, CEO of Crunch Franchise. “The significant growth we experienced is a true testament to not only Crunch’s leadership in the space but to our ongoing commitment to our members and their safety. It also speaks to our franchisees’ tremendous efforts and shows that our members wanted to get back in the gym as soon as possible.”
