Crunch Fitness is finally scheduled to open towards the end of April at the Opera House Hotel on 149th Street between Brook and Bergen.

The 18,000 square foot gym will offer signature classes such as:

Absolution: This class offers the perfect core strengthening solution. Concentrated ab-centric floor-work is paired with deep restorative stretching.

Belly, Butt and Thighs Bootcamp: Based on the popular DVD, focus on your lower half in this belly-busting, booty shaping class.

Bodyweb with TRX®: Hang from the durable TRX® ropes to push, pull, lift and lower your body through Spiderman moves for a total body suspension workout that also super-strengthens your core.

BOSU® Bootcamp: Integrated Balance Training on an apparatus that is a cross between a core board and a stability ball. It’s fun, it’s challenging and it’s a total body workout for any fitness level!

Cardio Tai Box: Tai Box is a high energy; high impact blend of kicks and punches set to upbeat music. This class is the perfect combination of martial arts, boxing and cardiovascular training.

Fat Burning Pilates: Calorie burning cardio and pilates based toning combine to maximize your fat burning potential.

Retro-Robics: It’s a blast from the past! Work up a sweat with a touch of nostalgia in this heart-pumping, traditional aerobics class. This time around, legwarmers are optional!

Tread n’ Shed: This badass cardio class will put you on the treadmill to melt away calories. In it, you’ll use sprints and slow walks with varying speeds and ramp heights to get a workout that’s got all the ups and
downs of a roller coaster.

Yoga Body Sculpt: This strength-building Vinyasa flow class focuses on sculpting your buns and thighs while flattening your belly and strengthening your core. This workout is based on Crunch’s latest hot video.

ZUMBA®: This class fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a high energy, calorie blasting, total body dance based workout. Zumba® is a great mix of Latin flavor and international beats designed to tone your body from head to toe.
