The Needs Of Olympic Athletes And Our Grandparents Differ By Degree Not Kind. Our Terrorist Hunters, Skiers, Mountain Bike Riders And Housewives Have Found Their Best Fitness From The Same Regimen.
What makes Jersey Strength & Athletics different?
CrossFit gyms as a whole are not a part of a chain or franchise. Each gym is individually owned and operated with as many differences between them as the differences you see between the many restaurants you drive past each day. JSA CrossFit, however, is unlike any other gym class, bootcamp, or fitness program. With ten years of full time coaching experience, JSA CrossFit was one of only three CrossFit gyms in 2006 in the entire state of NJ, and is the 180th CrossFit gym to open out of over 13,000 CrossFit gyms around the world currently. Countless hours and many years of coaching experience has made us skilled in helping everyone from the first time CrossFitter to the highly athletic individual looking to change their fitness routine to enhance all areas of their lives.
We incorporate various tools to help our members reach their fitness goals, from nutrition counseling to expert coaching on complex movements. Our program is comprised of Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, kettlebell training, basic gymnastics movements, and metabolic conditioning. Our coaches will provide instruction and progressive introduction to the intensity levels that are inherent in our group class sessions. Our goal is not to sell 500 memberships and hope that people don’t come. Our goal is to provide you with a great fitness experience and help you reach goals that were once thought unattainable. If you are coming from a sedentary background or come to us nursing some injuries and limitations, this will by no means affect your ability to CrossFit. CrossFit is universally scalable to all fitness levels.
JSACF is a TEACHING box and our coaches are eager to teach every time they step on the floor. Our main focus is that all of our athletes, every single time they attend class learn how to move safer, more efficiently and with greater skill whether it is their 1st or 1000th day of training. Our JSACF Trained Instructors complete a 45 hour Internship that includes 3 written/verbal tests before they wear our coach’s shirt. Our instructors are taught how to design skill specific warm ups, teach Points of Performance regarding the exercises being performed that day, and monitor the athletes during the ENTIRE workout. NEVER will you see one of our instructors who are supposed to be leading the class working out with the group. NEVER will you be told to just complete what is on the board. NEVER will you see our coaches more focused on their phone than their athletes. Our experience, our dedication to our clients and our insistence to provide the best coaching around are what make JSACF different from all the other CrossFit gyms out there. EXCELLENCE is our first, middle AND last name.

Jersey Strength & Athletics Barbell Club
There is a reason that competitive Olympic lifters start training as children…because the snatch, clean and jerk are movement much like works of art or the perfect golf swing with a hole in one. However, don’t let the fact that you are not eight years old stop you from learning these amazing lifts that generate explosive power and fitness. Our JSA LIFT coaches are extensively trained by the USA Weightlifting organization to teach you to become a proficient, and yes, even a competitive lifter if that is your goal. This class run by USA Weightlifting Sports Performance coaches in our USA sanctioned weightlifting club, Jersey Strength and Athletics, working with local and internationally ranked lifters.

JSA STRONG…the name says it all. This class is all about getting stronger through powerlifting and strongman methodologies using equipment like the yoke, Atlas stones, axle, sled, sandbag, tires and heavy free weights. Although not typically seen as an aerobic type class, I dare you to not feel your heart pumping out of your chest while building some mad muscle.
JSA ROM (Range Of Motion)
JSA ROM is a 30-45 minute class geared towards enhancing your recovery, preventing injury, improving performance through developing greater range of motion with the use of bands, rollers and other tools.

All that is expected of you as a new student is a willingness to try, come to classes, and enjoy the learning experience. Aikido martial arts training offers life-changing benefits that improve a student's mental and physical abilities.

Our patient and highly qualified instructors are trained in effective teaching strategies to teach children of all abilities. The style of martial art we teach, Aikido, nurtures cooperative behaviors in class that aid children in dealing with daily life challenges without the use of competition and tournaments.
