Set your sights on making 2020 your healthiest year yet!

Forget about those New Year’s resolutions. After all, it’s not about losing ten pounds or getting ripped. The real goal is feeling your best and staying healthy, and there’s no better place to start than at NEPA’s fitness centers.

Going to the gym doesn’t have to feel like a chore. All you have to do is find an activity you love, whether it’s loosening up at a yoga class, doing laps in the pool or scaling an indoor rock wall.

Check out these local gyms, yoga studios and sports centers. They’ll help you stay in shape, even in the off-season.


Lace Up Your Sneakers


NEPA’s gyms are so much more than treadmills and barbells.

Traditional gyms are like one-stop-shops for all of your workouts. They’re equipped with free weights, cardio machines and strength training equipment so you can build the perfect cross-training routine.

Most gyms also offer group exercise classes, which are a fun way to get fit with your friends. Get your pulse pumping at a spin class, dance your heart out at Zumba or unleash your strength at a cardio kickboxing session.

No more excuses! If the mere thought of the gym makes you nervous, try the family-friendly atmosphere at community centers like your local YMCA. And if you’re juggling a hectic schedule, sign up at a gym with 24/7 access so you always have time to squeeze in a workout.

Test Your Limits

If you’re up for a challenge, try some hardcore training.

A CrossFit session or a boot camp class is sure to make you sweat. Embrace that post-workout burn as a reminder of all your hard work.

You don’t have to be a fitness buff to sign up. The huge dumbbells and pull-up bars might look intimidating at first, but beginners are always welcome. You’ll be flipping giant tires and doing burpees in no time.

Find Your Inner Zen

Time to limber up!

Yoga is all about wellness, both for the mind and the body. You’ll feel relaxed and refreshed, all while getting in a great workout.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t touch your toes. NEPA’s studios offer classes for all skill levels, from beginners to full-fledged yogis. Melt away your stress at a hot yoga session or tone your core with a Pilates class.

Shake Up Your Workout Routine


Don’t get stuck doing the same old reps.

Your favorite sports might make the perfect workout.  Let loose and have some fun at NEPA’s sports centers. Join an indoor soccer league, go ice skating or fly high at a trampoline park. You’ll burn calories and have a blast at the same time.
