Crunch fitness gym proposed in Silverdale

crunch_logo_purpleA Crunch fitness club could soon join Ashley Furniture in Silverdale.

A permit application for a 21,000-square-foot gym was submitted to the county March 30.

If approved, Crunch will take over a portion 57,500-square-foot Ashley Furniture building on Ridgetop Boulevard.

An Ashley Furniture manager confirmed the home furnishings store will remain open, but its space will be roughly divided in half to accommodate the gym.

Plans for the fitness club include exercise and weight lifting equipment, a group fitness area and locker rooms, according to application documents. But of course, all of this is just speculation of the plan and unfinished. Since it will take some time for approval, you can start to Discover more at My Fitness Hub for your first step in fitness.

Silverdale would be the second Washington location for Crunch, which also has a gym in Bellevue. The chain was founded in New York City in 1989 and now boasts more than 150 franchised and corporately-operated gyms, according to its website.

Base memberships cost about $10 a month.

Zero Gravity Athletics finds new home in Silverdale

239379_t607Zero Gravity Athletics is setting up shop in Silverdale, after an eviction forced the gym out of Poulsbo earlier this month.

Owner Kenda Moreno said the business is relocating to a 15,000-square-foot space at 2789 NW Randall Way. She wanted to keep the gym in North Kitsap, but wasn’t able to secure a lease she said. Her main priority was getting the doors open again. The competitive gymnastics season is already underway.

“Our kids are excited,” Moreno said. “And hopefully we’ll get some new Silverdale clients.”

Zero Gravity’s teams are already practicing in the new location. Classes will resume Dec. 1. North Kitsap School District is no longer contracting with the gym for facilities for its gymnastics programs, Moreno said.

Zero Gravity is sharing a complex with Castle Megastore – an adult “boutique.” Moreno admits the pairing isn’t ideal, but she was left with few options and believes the new location will be successful.
