Back to Work!

Labor day comes and we know it’s time to FALL back into our regular routine and get back into the gym. This September NJAC is excited to Launch a NEW Small Group Training Program (SGT), a Group Exercise schedule with NEW classes including Les Mills GRIT, and a Youth Programming schedule sure to keep the whole family fit and active. We are also eager to open the Newly renovated Pool this month. Check out all the exciting details below. In Good Health, NJAC Staff.


Group Exercise

We are thrilled to launch the Fall Group Exercise schedule on Monday, September 10th. This fall we have two exciting NEW classes! Check out the newest Les Mills class NOW at NJAC – Les Mills GRIT is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout designed  with short rounds of high-intensity exercise followed by periods of strategic recovery. The GRIT series of workouts includes Strength, Plyo and Cardio workouts. The secret to ultimate results is not adding more workouts to your routine, but increasing their intensity. HIIT workouts are recommended as part of a balanced training plan. Max 25 participants in this class. Workouts are 30 mins. If you are looking for a well-rounded workout with less impact check out Walk & Tone - This class allows you to choose your own "speed" of walking on our indoor track. All class members meet between walking intervals to build strength and increase flexibility with bodyweight and resistance exercise- 1 hr. The noon schedule is back in full swing with the addition of Wednesday’s RPM and Thursday’s SoulBody Barre. Be sure to check out Power Pilates back on the schedule Wednesday’s at 9:30am and an evening BodyFlow class has conveniently be moved to Tuesday’s at 6:00pm for a well-balanced workout which leaves you with the sense of strength, flexibility, balance and relaxation.

NJAC Group Exercise programs separate themselves from the rest because we take the time to celebrate our programs, our members and instructors. Mark your calendars for October 20th when we celebrate the latest in group exercise with our Les Mills 4th quarter New Releases and the Launch Party of Les Mills GRIT!

I want to say a special thank you to my amazing youth programming team. I am so fortunate to have worked with such fantastic staff members; who have worked tirelessly to help grow the aquatics and youth programming here at NJAC. I appreciate all of your hard work over the years. I also want to say thank you to all of the members, clients, and children involved in the programs. You have all made coming to work each day a joy rather than a job. I wish nothing but the best for you all in the future. I truly will miss everyone.” - Best, Melissa
