NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Crunch Franchise announces an exciting deal that will bring eight new locations to Dallas-Fort Worth, TX over the next two years. With an anticipated goal of opening the first location by this summer, the Crunch Franchise team is currently seeking sites for the facilities throughout the DFW Metroplex.
To house Crunch's cutting-edge fitness offerings in a "No Judgments" workout environment, the gyms will range from approximately 16,000 to 25,000 square feet, feature vast amounts of state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment, and full-service locker rooms, among a number of other amenities. Crunch's staple Group Fitness classes including, Fat Burning Pilates, BOSU® Bootcamp, Cardio Tai Box, and more will be housed in each location's group fitness studio. The facilities will also be hiring expert personal trainers to provide members with personalized fitness plans.
Behind the project is entrepreneur and area native, Tony Hartl, founder and former CEO of Planet Tan, which started in Dallas in 1995 and eventually grew to 17 locations, generating the industry's highest sales per unit before being sold in 2008. Now, as CEO of PAH Capital and author of Selling Sunshine: 75 Tips, Tools, and Tactics for Becoming a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur, Hartl looks to bring his industry experience in rolling out the first Crunch locations in DFW.
"I am thrilled to partner with Crunch in bringing the brand's renowned facilities to the Dallas-Fort Worth area," said Hartl. "The Crunch Franchise model delivers a first-rate, member-driven experience that gets results and allows members to experience Crunch's fitness meets fun attitude towards workouts – all at an affordable rate. I look forward to opening these clubs in the near future and hope to find the region's top-notch locations to house the clubs."
