CLINTON TWP., NJ - Jeff Gold is the new Fitness and Wellness Program Coordinator for the Hunterdon County YMCA.

Gold, who has Hunterdon roots, aspires to make progressing every day towards living a healthier lifestyle more accessible to members of the Y and the Hunterdon County community.

Gold joins the HCYMCA with extensive experience in fitness. He served on the strength and conditioning staff at college Division I, Division II, and Division III levels where he was part of multiple Men’s and Women’s World Series, National, and Conference Champion programs. In addition, he led others in progression of quality injury prevention and rehabilitation, nutritional, psychological and leadership information.

Gold earned his Master of Science degree in Applied Health Physiology at Salisbury University. During his time there, he served as an adjunct professor in the Health Department and as the Head Strength Coach for the Women’s Basketball program prior to its first ever NCAA Elite 8 tournament run. After living in Maryland, Nashville, and Florida, Gold returned to his hometown of Flemington, and continues his pursuit of volunteerism with Occupational Therapy, Special Olympics, and Relay for Life.

“The opportunity to be part of the dynamic community at the HCYMCA is second to none,” Gold said in a press release. “I look forward to getting to know the Y members and developing innovative programs and methods that do more than make members tired, they make them better holistically.”

Gold believes that personal training can accomplish more than building muscle and burning calories, but that it can be adapted to meet virtually everyone’s needs from injury prevention to rehabilitation, to behavior change, joint pain reduction, and youth development.

The YMCA is committed to improving the health of the community and Gold’s position was created to further meet those needs. 

According to Justin Grand, Senior Director of Member Engagement and Wellness, “One of the greatest issues facing our nation and Hunterdon County is obesity. We believe quality personal training can educate an individual and provide the tools needed to continuously improve regardless of limitations or aspirations.”

For more information about joining the Y with small group personalized training, one-on-one training, youth training, and other programs call Jeff Gold at 908-782-1044 ext. 4919, email, or visit

The spokesman flat-out lied to you when he said all 10,000 customers in Hunterdon would have power restored by Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. 

I live on Thomas Street in High Bridge. My husband, multiple ...
