On Monday, September 11th, Crunch Fitness will be honoring those who lost their lives during 9/11 by challenging each of their staff, gym members, and you to climb 110 flights of stairs, representing the 110 floors of the World Trade Center Twin Towers.

That’s 2,071 steps taken in tribute to not only remember the sacrifice of the FDNY, but to also recognize the efforts local fire departments make on a daily basis. For their part, local firefighters (dressed in full turnout gear) will also utilize the step mills at Crunch to honor the first responders who lost their lives on September 11th.

On a day dedicated to honor and remembrance, this event brings the community together to show our gratitude to those courageous individuals.

You don’t have to be a current member of Crunch Fitness to participate. Anyone in the community is welcome to join Crunch Fitness in this challenge to pay tribute to the fallen first responders. The event is open to all fitness levels and participants can choose their level of involvement – whether they climb a single flight of stairs or complete the full 110-story challenge.

Participants will receive a free one-week membership to Crunch Fitness as well as a feature on Crunch’s social media pages. And be sure to share your experience on social media using the hashtag #CrunchStairChallenge.
