The Unfortunate Truth About Most Gyms And Studios

Most of the fitness studios you find across the state are for anyone and everyone. They give you the weights and space to work out – but fall short in keeping you accountable, and giving you the community of like-minded motivated people to succeed. Most of our members before joining Active Life Fitness report that they disliked going to the gym, and grew bored of the same workouts over and over from classes or trainers. We design our programs to be tailored to your needs and exercise level, regardless where you are starting from.

We Have Every Tool You Need To Be Successful

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill, generic gym—it’s a place where you’ll find individualized attention, encouragement and understanding. We don’t just provide weights and space: we help individuals over 40 find and walk the road to better health and wellness—whether that means weight loss, strength and mobility, or rediscovering youthful energy.

Can’t make it into the gym? We offer virtual coaching to help you get up and get moving at home or wherever else you might be. Our virtual coaching sessions are great for those who need a little boost of motivation or who want to make sure they’re staying on-track, even when they’re not at the gym.


The road to weight loss, better health and improved strength starts and ends in the kitchen. We teach you how to supplement your hard work at the gym with proper nutrition at home. No, it’s not about diets or starvation—it’s about knowing what to eat, how much and when, for smarter decision-making.

What Our Community Is Saying

Prior to joining ALF, I was sluggish and not motivated to make changes to my body or well-being. Plus, I never felt comfortable at a gym but since ALF I have made improvements not only in my mind and body but in my overall confidence.

I now eat healthily and never miss my workouts because I feel great and I don’t want to feel NOT great anymore! The personal trainers keep me highly motivated. I’ve improved my self-esteem to the point that I want to inspire others in their own journey to a healthier lifestyle.

The supportive atmosphere they have created at ALF always makes working out a pleasure. You never get bored of your workout, they are constantly challenging you while always making sure that your form is good and safe.

I went from being a running dropout and not exercising for four years to finally being able to stick with a program. It feels great to be strong and healthy again!

Take Charge. Feel Amazing.

We’ve put a lot of thought into the way we’ve designed and equipped Active Life Fitness. Owners Kim and Marty Musikant were personal trainers at a health club for many years, and they knew what people didn’t like about large fitness centers. Our concept is a prime example of addition by subtraction: a gym that doesn’t feel like a gym.

Here’s what you won’t find at Active Life Fitness:
