The Fitness Wars are heating up. Harbor Fitness & Crunch are in buildings across from each other on Fifth Avenue; each gym has an entrance on 15th Street. Crunch is on the upper floor of the building it occupies: the floor below it remains vacant. Harbor, with its gym on the 15th street side of the building complex, is expanding into the vacant storefront previously occupied by Vice Versa.
FUTURE EXPANSION OF OUR 25,000 SQUARE-FOOT FLAGSHIP GYM, PARK SLOPE'S BIGGEST FITNESS FACILITY...NO ANNUAL FEES, PROCESSING FEES, HASSLES ... $19 TO JOIN...
Crunch meanwhile is making its standard claims. WHAT WE HAVE IS A CULTURE OF FUN. WHAT THERE IS IS ROOM FOR EVERYONE... AWESOME CLASSES ... SHINY MACHINES ...ROCKSTAR TRAINERS... NO JUDGMENTS ... etc.
Harbor Fitness, founded in 1991, in Bay Ridge, has four South Brooklyn locations. Crunch, founded in 1989, in the East Village, has over two hundred locations throughout the United States and in Canada.
