CLARK, NJ – 24 Hour Fitness Club of Clark celebrated the completion of its recent renovation and grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday afternoon.  The ceremony was part of a weekend-long open house held to introduce the community to the all-new-inside state-of-the-art fitness facility.

“It’s all about providing service, getting results, and making fitness fun,” Club Manager Jon Gallo said.  “We really pride ourselves on our anthem board.” The anthem board is the Club’s mission statement and clearly defines its promise to its members.

Rows of brand new equipment are at the center of a thoughtful and thorough redesign that includes a pilates room, yoga room, cycling studio, mind-body studio, free-weight area, personal training zone, and a fully-appointed Kids’ Club.

“I’m here every Monday, Wednesday and Friday,” said Councilman Al Barr, a club member and former competitive body builder who represented the township at the ceremony. 

New club members will receive a free one-hour health fitness consultation that includes an introduction to the facility, a physical assessment, a discussion of personal goals and a preliminary road map for achieving success.

Gallo suggested that new members might also benefit from an introductory 5-session personal training package to further define and plan their fitness strategy.

The open house continues through Sunday, June 28 with tours of the facility.  The club is located at  140 Central Avenue, Clark.
