Crunch Fitness is considering locations for future group fitness pilots

There are more than 460 locations and 2.5 million members in the Crunch Fitness system

Woodway is the exclusive worldwide service and distribution partner for CLMBR

AUSTIN, TX – (NewMediaWire) – June 18, 2024 – Interactive Strength Inc. (Nasdaq: TRNR) (“TRNR” or “the Company”), maker of innovative specialty fitness equipment under the CLMBR and FORME brands, today announced that Crunch Fitness has successfully completed a multi-month group fitness pilot in the West Hollywood location by purchasing 13 CLMBR’s. Crunch Fitness is considering locations for future group fitness pilots.

Trent Ward, Co-Founder and CEO of TRNR, said: “Crunch is one of the fastest growing gym chains in the US and has been recognized as an innovative leader in the industry for a long time. They are renowned for creating one-of-a-kind group fitness classes and their successful pilot of the group fitness experience featuring multiple CLMBR’s is incredibly exciting. The CLMBR classes were very popular, and they drove an increase in member engagement and new memberships. We are looking forward to supporting additional group fitness pilots, and then hopefully to adoption across the wider Crunch network.”

Douglas Bayerlein, president of Woodway USA, said: “Crunch has been a leader in making premium fitness equipment available to its large and diverse fitness community, and Woodway’s unparalleled reputation for quality and service were key considerations for launching this partnership at Crunch West Hollywood.”

The next group fitness pilots, if launched, are expected to take place in corporate owned locations before CLMBR is made available to the rest of the Crunch Fitness system. Crunch Fitness is growing quickly, with more than 460 corporate and franchised locations currently open, and more than 1,400 franchise locations committed to eventually be open. Crunch West Hollywood piloted CLMBR devices in both a group fitness experience and on the cardio floor.

The group fitness application demonstrates the strong potential of the CLMBR opportunity, given the number of spin bikes that have been installed over the past couple decades across the industry. The positive reception of the class concept at Crunch West Hollywood mirrors the success of Studio CLMBR in Denver.
