Expected to open mid-December, Crunch Abilene will be located at 4709 S 14th Street and will service the community 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Fusing fitness with entertainment to make serious exercise fun, Crunch Abilene will offer top-quality cardio and strength training equipment, half-hour circuit training, personal training, a functional training area with indoor turf, a dedicated group fitness studio, tanning beds and sunless spray options, and more.

Crunch Abilene owners Brian Hibbard and John Armatas are not new to franchising or the fitness industry. Hibbard is the president and franchisor of a 50-unit chain of businesses in another industry and, prior to developing Crunch locations, Armatas was an executive with the YMCA for nearly 20 years. 

"We are excited to bring the Crunch brand to Abilene, which hasn't had the modern fitness facilities it deserves," said Hibbard. "We really do cater to everyone, and every fitness level, from the first-time gym-goer to the seasoned athlete, all in a high-energy and fun environment. And with memberships starting at just $9.95 a month, there are options to meet everyone's goals and budget." With the addition of Abilene, and locations already secured and soon to be announced in multiple other West Texas markets, Crunch will stand at 7 West Texas locations by early 2019, making it the largest fitness provider in the region.

Crunch is known for its innovative group fitness programming and will offer a wide range of classes every week including BodyWeb with TRX®, Zumba®, Cardio Tai Box, Yoga Body Sculpt and Fat Burning Pilates. Members looking for additional guidance or motivation can utilize the HIITZone, a proprietary high-intensity interval group training program.
