A Balanced Approach to Health and Wellness


Welcome to 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition! New to the site? We have two locations, both conveniently located right on Route 9 in Hadley, each offering an array of classes and personal training options to fit your needs.

Voted number one Health and Fitness Center in the Valley – 2017

13 Best of the Valley awards, in three years!


We believe that one or two classes aren’t enough for someone to truly see the value of one of our memberships. For that reason, we offer all new clients one month of unlimited classes for just $59 ($49 for students and personal training clients). This gives you a chance to sample different classes and instructors at both locations so that you are able to find your optimal workout schedule!

Targeted Strength Training Programs


The 50/50 Targeted Strength Training Programs are quite different than our group fitness classes or Fit Camp offerings.  Targeted Adult Training are structured programs designed to offer a well-rounded training program to achieve specific outcomes.  The Targeted programs utilize principles of traditional strength training such as Progressive Overload that allows for specific adaptation to imposed demand.  These designs allow for safe and effective progressions that are tracked on a Tracker Sheet to ensure greater success.  The programs are also offered within a small group setting of 8 participants, allowing for greater one-on-one attention from a certified personal trainer than found in our large group fitness classes. Also, the small group sessions result in great camaraderie and friendships.   It truly has become one of our most popular training services.


What deeper benefits can we derive from training, in particular Targeted Strength Training? Even beyond the more obvious health benefits of improving cardiac function or muscular endurance, increase in flexibility and mobility, change in body composition, strength training can truly improve our everyday lives.  Strength training should improve the function of movement.  In terms of activities of daily living we perform a wide array of movement activities: walking, jogging, jumping, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, turning, and many more.  These every-day activities involve smooth, rhythmic motions in the three planes of movement.

The time we put in our Targeted Strength Training Programs will not only increase the strength of our muscles, but also the coordination between our nervous and muscular systems. This is where the true pay-off of functional training lies. In functional training, we focus on training certain movements, over developing a certain muscle or muscle group in isolation. In this way, we translate the work we put in at the gym into improvements in the day in day out functionality of our body.


In designing Targeted Strength Training, Jay and his staff have focused on providing a high degree of functional fitness within a more traditional strength training program. Everything we do in class is meant to improve our functional fitness in a safe yet challenging way.
