Oh before we jump in too deep on this… be sure to “Like” their Facebook page… they are putting up posts specific to the Deptford location!
And they are offering a sweepstakes for a free year of gym membership! Check their webpage!
To be a little more specific on the location.. well we assume everyone in our readership is familiar with the Deptford Mall! ha! But the mall is located right off the 42Freeway and Route 55, and features Macy’s, JC Penney’s, Boscov’s and dozens of other stores including a food court. The former Sears building was repurposed as Round 1 arcade center and Dick’s Sporting Goods!
The new Crunch Fitness facility is a standalone building in the main Mall parking area, which was previously the Sears Auto Center.
Local New Jersey Ownership! A Quick Overview
We met up with franchise owner Zach and GM Austin recently to talk about their new gym coming to Deptford!
Deptford location owner Zach is a lifelong New Jersey resident and Stockton University graduate (and baseball standout)… growing up not too far from Deptford, but is now so committed to the new gym and Gloucester County… that he lives close by right in our area!
Zach explains that the new facility will be 28,000 square feet, and one of Crunch’s largest facilities on the East coast!
As you’ll see in the photo tour below, they cover all the core facets of a gym, and more… and maybe with a little more focus on the free weights area!
A quick rundown of what Crunch Fitness Deptford will offer:
