Our incredible member, Farshid!

I feel so lucky to have found my way to 50/50. The first time I showed up for the (free) Saturday morning Fit Camp this past July, I was barely able to jog 50 yards around the parking lot. There was this guy who went flying around the lot and wasn’t even breathing hard – when I commented on how fast he ran, he laughed and told me about how out of shape he had been until he’d found 50/50 just a short while earlier. It didn’t take long to figure out that his story was not so different from that of many other people I met at 50/50. What kept me coming back class after class though wasn’t so much the prospect of getting in shape as the fact that at the end of every single class I felt glad that I had shown up, that I had done something fun and worthwhile for myself but in a way that made it part of something bigger. The word that you’ll find almost always follows 50/50 is “community” — the friendly atmosphere, the wonderful people (from all walks of life and all kinds of ages, ability levels, goals, etc), and the extremely talented and caring instructors are what make this place so special.

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 (New) Targeted Strength Programs

Last Chance to get into our Targeted Training Programs! Already over 70 People have signed up!! Looking to build strength in a fun, safe, challenging environment? Targeted Training provides a middle ground between personal training and group classes by offering 8 weeks of strength training in a well-planned progression to groups of up to 7 participants. You will receive the attention to detail, individualized coaching and support found in training, while still enjoying the camaraderie of a small tightly knit group, all at a much more affordable price tag than personal training. Each 8 week progression offers full-body strength training using a variety of equipment, including barbells, cable-machines, kettlebells, dumbbells, and resistance bands. We also offer two free additional weeks; the first week (prior to the start of the 8 week progression) will be a strength training clinic for beginners and advanced participants alike. This week will allow us to go over the mechanics of the class and get started on training proper exercise form. After the 8 weeks of training, there will be an additional make-up week; to allow those who had to miss 1-2 sessions during the program a time to make-up these work-outs. To maximize the benefits of the program, we highly recommend twice a week attendance, but once a week attendance is possible. Each session allows a maximum of 7 participants, ensuring a good training environment and plenty of one-on-one coaching from the trainer.Available Slots: Monday 8:30am one spot availableMonday 5:30pm one spot availableMonday 7:00pm one spot availableWednesday 8:30am one spot availableWednesday 7:00pm two spots availableThursday 6:00pm one spot availableFriday 8:00am one spot available$150 for one session of strength training a week and $300 for two sessions of strength training a week.

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.


At 50/50, we are all about celebrating community! From our yearly member recognition party- to local events like our Boot Camp to Wildwood BBQ, No Shave November Mustache Day, Bike to Brunch (to the new Homestead Restaurant in Northampton), Tabata to Margaritas, and so much more!!  This is not your typical gym! When you walk through our doors, you will feel the difference!
