Two New Gyms Opening in Bergen

Group workout classes are back—and these two gyms, opening later this year, will be thrilled to have you.
2 New Gyms


Like most businesses in New Jersey, gyms have returned to 100 percent capacity, which is huge news for these studios and fitness centers that suffered greatly when they were shut down during the peak of COVID-19 last year. And though some gyms have unfortunately not recovered from the lost profits during the pandemic—for example, 24-Hour Fitness in Hasbrouck Heights and Saddle Brook have both closed permanently—others are thriving…and even opening up new locations in New Jersey!

So, if you’re ready to ramp up your fitness routine and think you’ll feel comfortable returning to indoor group fitness classes this fall (if not sooner), here are two new gym openings in Bergen County to mark on your calendar for later this year:

  • Life Time Fitness Clubs, which currently has a location in Montvale, is expanding its Bergen County presence with a second location in Hackensack this fall, the company revealed. The gym will be located on the lower level of The Shops at Riverside and will serve as a studio for 100 group fitness classes per week; barre, cycle, yoga and Pilates. Hospital grade air filtration, extensive cleaning protocols and spacious studio space to allow for ample social distancing ensure the safety and health of all members. Join the waitlist on the website before Life Time Hackensack’s grand opening in “late 2021.”
    *390 Hackensack Ave., Suite #010, 866.770.1546
  • OrangetheoryFitness is also expanding in Bergen County with a new location at Rutherford Commons in East Rutherford. The 3,336 sq. ft. studio doesn’t yet have an opening date, but its location is confirmed: It will be situated close to MetLife Stadium on Route 17 and within the same shopping plaza at Lowes, Jersey Mike’s and Verizon. OTFit, which already has locations in Hackensack, Montvale, Ramsey, Closter and Edgewater, is a unique workout that includes a rowing component, cardio and strength training, all within a single one-hour session. PS: Your first class at the new East Rutherford location is free!
    *150 Rte. 17, 201.537.4786
