Snap Fitness


SNAP FITNESS, Head-Quartered in Chanhassen, MN, has developed a unique health club concept that has taken most of the overhead and cost structure out of the business and has given customers what they want: Quality, Value, and Convenience. With over 1000 clubs open in markets throughout the Midwest and beyond they are changing the way Americans exercise.

Their modern facilities are compact in stature (2,500 -3,000 sq. ft.) but are loaded with state-of-the-art exercise equipment without the overhead of a “big box” health club. By going further into neighborhoods where the full service clubs can’t go, they are capitalizing on an underserved market.

Clubs are available to members 24-7 through an elaborate key-card and security system, making them safe and convenient. Their track record of success has substantiated that people will forgo the expense of a full-service health club in favor of an affordable, convenient alternative.
