Throughout the uncertainty of the last two years, the gym has continued to adapt in order to meet our members’ needs. We started with offering virtual classes, when shutdowns first began. Soon after, we began the program “Lotta Gains,” outdoor classes that allowed members to connect with their favorite instructors while maintaining social distance. Overall, Echelon had to close its doors for nearly 6 months before reopening in September 2020 at limited capacity.
Today, we are back but still behind our total members since Covid but are lazer focused on continuing to improve your experince and our mission of helping our community, members, and PERX partners become healthier, fitter, and stronger.

Thrive Personal Training and Classes
Personal training and fitness classes have been a great way for Echelon members to stay healthy and connected.
“I ended up joining THRIVE and that was probably one of the best things that has happened for me,” expressed Lashaun Drew, member and owner of Original Hot Dog Factory. “Not only do they push you to be your best version while you’re working out, they push you in general, in life.”
Thrive Personal Training is a performance-driven fitness program that is designed to help any individual meet their goals. Echelon Health & Fitness is the only place you will find this innovative program in South Jersey.
“It’s very personalized, very enthusiastic, they will never let you miss a step,'' said Sonia Osorio Owner of Maria’s Mexican Restaurant. “If you are looking to join a program that will give you the best training possible, I would definitely recommend Echelon.”
Both Sonia and Lashaun are local business owners, who joined Echelon Health & Fitness through the MemberPERX program.
The People Make the Difference
At Echelon Health & Fitness, the people are what makes the environment special. Two words often come up when people talk about Echelon: family, and community.
“The difference for me with Echelon is it’s a family feeling,” says Melissa Arce, member turned fitness instructor. “I’ve been to gyms where it feels corporate, but here, even with the members you become close and build relationships.”
“The community here is hard to describe, '' says Kayla Gorrell, instructor since 2016, “it’s a great energy and people really care about each other.”
Thank you for choosing to be a Echelon member. We truly appreciate your support over the last six years. We look forward to many more years of helping our community become healthier, fitter, and stronger.
