The Original Gym and Personal Training Program for Men and Women Aged 40+

Active Life Fitness is the first gym and personal training program designed for those over 40 who want to feel younger and age better. What sets our program apart from health clubs and other training studios is we specialize in training people over 40, plus we offer exceptional value with an all-inclusive model. Our members receive a personalized program, semi-private personal training, access to large group classes, nutritional guidance and unlimited gym visits all for one monthly fee.

Our Dream

Most fitness coaches get into the business because of their love of helping people. We are no different; in fact, it's what drives us on a daily basis. Knowing we are making a positive impact on someone's life is incredibly fulfilling.

Having trained in health clubs for many years, we were fortunate to build great relationships, change lives, and grow professionally as coaches and mentors to a diverse group of clients. We learned valuable lessons in training and in business.

We realized we were having the greatest impact on our cohorts-men and women around the same age as us, and older, with whom we especially connected and developed a deep trust. We educated ourselves to understand more about the aging process and its effect on strength, conditioning, fitness and health. This knowledge enabled us to reach another level in our own fitness. We were feeling so much younger than before and discovered we were aging far better than we had been.

Our vision, our dream and our mission became to help as many people as possible "to feel younger and to age better!"

Active Life Fitness was founded for this very reason. We also wanted to create a fitness environment that was the antithesis of the typical health club, which may not address the needs of older members, and where the emphasis is on selling memberships, not on client results.

We took special care to ensure our facility, programming and training were appealing to our target audience. We crafted an intimate gym setting where people can get a customized program, expert fitness coaching and nutritional guidance, all while exercising alongside their peers in a positive, supportive and motivating environment. We've discovered it leads to a better experience and even better results. We think you'll agree.

Feel Younger, Age Better

We are dedicated to inspiring, educating and empowering people to live healthier, happier, more active lives.

Our members believe aging should not be a reason to stop participating in the activities they love. Many are passionate about hiking, tennis, golf, basketball, dancing, swimming, cycling, running or even playing in the backyard with their children or grandchildren.

In fact, Active Life Fitness's unique program attracts people from Cranford to Westfield and all over Union County including:
