Ironically we were just in Puerto Rico (San Juan actually off Silversea Cruises’ Silver Spirit) and had no idea that the island will soon sport a Crunch Fitness member of the wildly popular and quirky worldwide health club chain.
The news was released via press release received today, April 6, and says, “Crunch Fitness announces the arrival of their first franchise location in Puerto Rico just outside Plaza Escorial, Carolina. Crunch Fitness representatives recognize the need to provide an exercise space where people can work on getting a better quality of life in a fun, non-judgmental and friendly environment. The franchise aims to provide personalized support and motivation to their customers through physical and emotional improvement.”
The PR club will feature more than 20,000 square-feet of workout space spread out over three floors. Members be able to stay in shape with 70-plus cardio machines, free weights, and signature classes staged in a state-of-the-art group fitness studio that will include Zumba®, Cardio Tai Box, Yoga Body Sculpt, TRX®, Cycling Studio, and more.
Anyone joining the club will enjoy access to doFIT – an online nutritional program accessible from computers or mobile phones. This nutritional program will provide members the ability to monitor nutrition and physical progress whenever members are not training at the gym. Additional offerings includes HydroMassage and tanning services, all starting at $9.95 a month without any contract to sign and without cancellation fees.
The club will be owned and operated by Pablo Acosta and Herminia Ortiz who had a vision to bring a new fitness franchise where people feel like they're working out at home, around friends, and in a safe place. "My wife and I decided to fulfill our dream to invest in the present and future of Puerto Rico and today and we are thrilled to call ourselves proud owners of Crunch Fitness in Puerto Rico. Our country needs more places where citizens can dissipate the everyday stress and anxiety in a safe and healthy environment - in order for them work harder, be confident, and have determination despite the complicated situations that affect us," said Pablo. "We are confident that at Crunch Fitness, each member will find the tools to achieve better physical health, increase their desire to excel, live with energy and eagerness, but above all receive a full fitness club at an affordable price. Our modern facility, with a top team of professionals are eager to make your day a better one," Pablo Acosta confirmed with enthusiasm.
