There was a giant gym full of excitement going on at 451 Valley Street in South Orange yesterday as Blink Fitness, the premium-quality, value-based fitness club, opened its newest New Jersey location.
As a part of the Grand Opening celebration, Blink donated 50 one-year memberships, worth over $10,000, to HANDS Inc., an organization dedicated to revitalizing neighborhoods and creating spaces for arts, culture, business, recreation and learning.
“We are so pleased that Blink Fitness has chosen to donate these memberships to community members in neighboring Orange and the staff of HANDS,” said Patrick Morrissy, Executive Director of HANDS. “As an organization, we are committed to raising the quality of community life and that includes more options for healthy lifestyles and wellness. We are glad to welcome the club to the area.”
There was also a lot of swag to go around at the grand opening. Attendees got the chance to receive Blink Fitness branded gear (including some very nice water bottles), while one lucky winner was awarded a one-year membership to the new gym.
“We are excited to open our doors and welcome the South Orange community,” said Ambrose Price, Club Manager. “We’re sure that Blink will become a healthy, happy hub of activity in the neighborhood.”
The facility boasts a broad offering of top-of- the-line strength equipment that includes free weights, plates, and machines for upper body, lower body, and core, as well as a wide variety of premium cardio machines and a multi-use space for additional exercises, stretching, and functional training.
Certified personal trainers are available for members who want to create a custom workout experience tailored to their personal goals.
And it’s affordable: Memberships are available for as low as $15 per month with a free start up personal training session.
Blink Fitness brings its “Mood Above Muscle” philosophy to this newest location, celebrating the idea that exercise is not only about looking good, but also about feeling good.
“Blink Fitness strives to make working out fun and uplifting by creating a Feel Good Experience, which is made up of five pillars that make Blink unlike any other fitness club,” read a release. “This includes their respectful and friendly staff, bright and open gym design using colors that are scientifically proven to enhance mood, a spotlessly clean facility, and music specifically selected to motivate members.”
It’s bright. It’s friendly. AND it smells good.
