Vancouver, BC, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steve Nash Fitness World and Sports Clubs (SNFW B.C. Ltd.) announces the expansion of its corporate portfolio with the introduction of Crunch Fitness to the British Columbian market. SNFW B.C. Ltd. will open five Crunch locations across BC in 2019.

Steve Nash Fitness World & Sports Clubs is Western Canada’s largest player in the fitness landscape, offering a robust family of fitness brands and the largest complement of personal trainers. The company’s expansion with Crunch Fitness in BC comes after taking on the BC rights to popular MMA brand UFC Gym back in 2016. With three distinct brands under the SNFW B.C. Ltd. corporate umbrella, the company now offers consumers their choice of a premier, tailored, full-service fitness offering with Steve Nash Fitness World & Sports Clubs, a low-cost, high-value boutique-style workout facility with Crunch Fitness, and a family-friendly, martial arts option with UFC Gym.

“We’re excited to bring a diverse selection of fitness facilities to our members” says Chris Smith, CEO of SNFW B.C. Ltd. “Our goal is to make fitness and a healthy lifestyle accessible for everyone across Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest and we’re thrilled that this expansion brings us one step closer to our goal.”

The company is dedicated to a robust expansion over the next five years. For nearly 60 years, SNFW B.C. Ltd. has experienced growth due to the quality of its team, facilities, and service offering. It’s this growth that allows the company to expand its portfolio to meet the evolving consumer demands and provide a fitness solution for all consumers.  The first Crunch to open in BC will be in Burnaby, BC

SNFW Fitness B.C. Ltd. is British Columbia’s premier fitness provider with over 27 locations across BC and operates a family of fitness brands that includes Steve Nash Fitness Clubs, UFC Gyms and Crunch Fitness.  For more information, visit and
