Dream Delayed...

3 and a half months after the Grand Opening of Active Life Fitness, located in Garwood, NJ, new gym owners Marty and Kim Musikant were awakened from their sleep and notified a fire had occurred in the restaurant located next door to their new gym.

The Original Gym and Personal Training for Men and Women Aged 40+

Active Life Fitness is the first gym and personal training program designed for those over 40 who want to feel younger and age better.

Our Dream

Most fitness coaches get into the business because of their love of helping people. We are no different; in fact, it's what drives us on a daily basis. Knowing we are making a positive impact on someone's life is incredibly fulfilling.

Having trained in health clubs for many years, we were fortunate to build great relationships, change lives, and grow professionally as coaches and mentors to a diverse group of clients. We learned valuable lessons in training and in business.

We realized we were having the greatest impact on our cohorts-men and women around the same age as us, and older, with whom we especially connected and developed a deep trust. We educated ourselves to understand more about the aging process and its effect on strength, conditioning, fitness and health. This knowledge enabled us to reach another level in our own fitness. We were feeling so much younger than before and discovered we were aging far better than we had been.

Our vision, our dream and our mission became to help as many people as possible "to feel younger and to age better!"

Active Life Fitness was founded for this very reason. We also wanted to create a fitness environment that was the antithesis of the typical health club, which may not address the needs of older members, and where the emphasis is on selling memberships, not on client results.

We took special care to ensure our facility, programming and training were appealing to our target audience. We crafted an intimate gym setting where people can get a customized program, expert fitness coaching and nutritional guidance, all while exercising alongside their peers in a positive, supportive and motivating environment. We've discovered it leads to a better experience and even better results. We think you'll agree.

Feel Younger, Age Better

We are dedicated to inspiring, educating and empowering people to live healthier, happier, more active lives.

Our members believe aging should not be a reason to stop participating in the activities they love. Many are passionate about hiking, tennis, golf, basketball, dancing, swimming, cycling, running or even playing in the backyard with their children or grandchildren.

In fact, Active Life Fitness's unique program attracts people from Cranford to Westfield and all over Union County including:


Personal Trainer Review

"Having a training plan tailored to being a woman, my age and my busy scheduled has produced remarkable results! I've seen my upper body strength and flexibility increase immensely and my weight has dropped to its lowest level in 20 years. I've amazed myself.'
