One of their goals is to become the most recognized health club network in the Northeastern United States and they are well on their way as they are currently the largest. The company has recently been moving towards becoming more environmentally sustainable, with green revolution exercise equipment, recycling programs, solar platforms in their corporate office and eco-friendly lighting and energy management systems being installed in all of their clubs. The club offers many amenities including free parking and spa services at some locations, babysitting services, pools and kid’s programs. With over 150 locations in the Northeast’s four major metropolitan areas, you are guaranteed a convenient location close to home or work.
Their website promises, “No matter what your fitness level, all Sports Clubs locations offer a multitude of options for everyone, including a wide range of group exercise and fitness programs.

All Clubs are fully equipped with tons of strength training equipment, cardiovascular machines and other exercise equipment. Additional services such as personal training, massage, steam room and sauna, Sports Clubs for Kids and fitness assessments are also available.
The company’s successful growth over the years is a result of many things, including its innovative fitness programs, well-trained staff, dedication to quality and service and continual facility improvement. But foremost, Sports Clubs success has been earned by placing member satisfaction above all else. Our members are satisfied because they get results from their fitness programs.”
We spoke to Lisa Hufcut, Director of Public Relations, who told us more about the great services the club provides and the special events offered this month.
This month is the 36th anniversary of your club. What special events are you offering?
We have a really huge event next Wednesday, September 22nd. It will be a big open house or free guest day, where we invite everyone from the New York, New Jersey and surrounding areas to join us. People will be able to sample the gym, have their blood pressure checked, get a full tour of the gym, sample new workouts and play different games. We only have these open houses on a quarterly basis and this is a special one because we are also celebrating our birthday this month, so is extra special. It’s a very exciting month for us and all this month people can join for only $19.74 and get the rest of the September for free.
We offer a wide variety of classes for many different fitness levels, and we even offer workouts consumers might not have previously heard about, and anyone can sample all of our classes including the very popular Zumba class. We also offer classes a lot of other gyms don’t offer such as TRX suspension training and we keep abreast of all the newest workout routines and training equipment. Our full body positioning and spinning classes are very popular, but we are always introducing new and interesting classes such as kettlebells, which is a new weight training class. We keep our schedule of workouts very balanced and offer all the essentials of cardio options, strength training and flexibility classes.
Additionallly, we have the newest equipment in our clubs and each year update our equipment. Our workout machines have their own screens on them, so each individual can watch their own programming while working out. A lot of other clubs don’t offer this feature yet.
It is my belief that our club also offers an excellent value for the membership you pay, compared to other gyms, and for your convenience we also offer a passport membership, so patrons can use any of our 158 gyms in the network for one fee. It is a great option for anyone that travels a lot or works and lives in separate states and wants the choice of either working out near home or near their jobs, even when they have to travel. I feel this makes it a great value and option for our consumers.
