Jose Soto and Lou Urbano are Marine Corps veterans who deployed together in 2006. Having a passion for physical fitness, they decided to bring the camaraderie and teamwork of the Marine Corps into the civilian fitness world. In 2012, they opened a facility in Bloomfield, NJ which gained popularity so quickly a bigger location was required.
After moving from their original Bloomfield location, NJ HIIT is excited to bring the group training atmosphere and philosophy to North Arlington. NJ HIIT expects to bring more fitness and health success stories from both previous and new members. The facility aims at helping people achieve their fitness and health goals in a group and team based environment.
The new NJ HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) fitness facility will welcome the community to their Grand Opening event scheduled for March 5th 2016 from 1:00pm-6:00pm at 576 Ridge Road in North Arlington. The event is open to the whole family and will include fitness challenges, health evaluations, children’s activities, the opportunity to speak with coaches, current members and more.
NJ HIIT small-group training classes include high-intensity interval training, strength training, cardio conditioning, total body workouts, Zumba, and more. But NJ HIIT is about more than fitness. It’s about becoming better every single day both mentally and physically by inspiring, leading, succeeding and helping one another attain and maintain healthy lifestyles. NJ HIIT integrates all aspects of well-being to help achieve balance with nutrition, rest, recovery, mind-body connectivity, physical movement and health improvement.
“At NJ HIIT, everyone is an athlete. Whether you are overweight, underweight or have a specific fitness objective, our aim is to help you achieve your goals through various exercise modalities,” explains Jose Soto. “We also assist you in surpassing personal goals in a shorter amount of time through monthly assessments and accountability groups. In all our classes, the Coaches offer modifications for beginners and progressions for our advanced athletes – allowing everyone to work out at their individual level in the same group class.”
NJ HIIT’s member base is highly diverse, consisting of men and women from a wide array of ages and professions. Members include students, doctors, entrepreneurs, teachers, engineers, state troopers, firefighters, and police officers among others. With over a quarter of their membership being first responders and veterans, NJ HIIT host fitness programs for those in the service and those wanting to pass the fitness exams for local, state and government jobs.
NJ HIIT features a 7,700sq ft open floor format which allows for different class setups throughout the day. Classes begin at 6:00am with the final class starting at 8:15pm. Membership options are available at monthly rates in addition to individual and class pass bundles. Military, first responder and student discounts are available with a valid ID.
