Idaho AGC Going Up

A decaying gym building in SE Boise is slated to again host barbells and treadmills as part of the expansion of a national chain in the Treasure Valley.

Crunch Fitness plans to open at the corner of Beacon St. and Division Ave. near ParkCenter Blvd. in coming months – after crews finish work on more than $400,000 worth of construction.

The old indoor swimming pool and spa will be filled in and covered, the exterior will be revamped, skylights will be taken out and a flurry of other cosmetic and structural changes.

A portion of the building’s second floor will be removed, shrinking the overall square footage.

The building has hosted a number of gyms on and off over the years, including a 24 Hour Fitness location, Park Center Health and Racquet Club and others.

Crunch Fitness entered the market when a franchisee purchased seven existing Idaho Athletic Club locations last year.
