The Best Fitness in Bergen County? Find That and More at Kaplen JCC on the Palisades

Activities  / 

Congratulations! You’ve made the choice to become more active in 2019. But by active, you probably didn’t mean spending even more time in your car as you travel from spin to yoga to the swimming pool in search of your total body workout. What you need is one spot for all of your fitness in Bergen County that offers all the classes, equipment, instruction and amenities you could ever dream of all in one location. Good news! Kaplen JCC on the Palisades has got you covered.

The new year is a great time to start something new or shake up your old routine. Members of the JCC are able to try out any one of the 90+ free drop-in group exercise classes offered each week. Classes are varied and include: TRX, yoga, barre, Pilates, Zumba and, for those who have set lofty goals for this year, try the new Performance Lab, small group training where you work to your max potential. Or, join the Men’s Basketball League for the camaraderie and for seasonal professional style competitive play.

But as any parent knows, it’s not JUST about you. It’s ALSO about your kids. Why not encourage your kids to have fitness goals of their own?  Join the J and send them to the Benjamin Bergen Youth Fitness Center for drop-in after school classes, training or supervised time on the fitness equipment. Or, sign them up for one of the afterschool classes in tennis, tae kwon do, basketball, soccer and more. Pssst! You can pack your bag and squeeze in a massage or facial on the extra time. It’s one of the benefits of belonging to a family wellness center like the J!

If classes aren’t your thing, or if you think you need more individualized instruction before you try them out, arrange for a few personal training sessions with a one of the professional, caring, motivational staff. They will work with individuals to design fitness packages that suit specific needs or preferences and that keep special conditions and busy schedules in mind. Or, treat yourself to some time in the Seiden Wellness Center, a premium fitness experience that’s loaded with private amenities including an adults-only locker room, tree-top views and a luxurious spa, now accepting walk-in appointments!

For those who have bravely put learning to swim on their bucket list, or for anyone who just want to swim better or faster, the JCC aquatics facility includes both indoor and outdoor pools in the complex. Imagine how great it will feel this summer when this project you started indoor in the dead of winter pays off outside in the warmth of a new season. Reach those goals with private or semi-private Red Cross swim lessons for all ages and including lessons tailored for those with special needs or mixed abilities, and specialty classes including Masters swim, scuba diving, lifeguard training and the Wave Runners competitive swim team for kids ages 5-17.
