NEWARK, N.J., April 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Blink Fitness, the premium-quality, value-based fitness club, is excited to announce the grand opening of its 69th location, in Newark. The club will open the doors to its much-anticipated location at 2-14 Ferry St. on Friday, April 27th from 12 PM to 11 PM. As a part of the Grand Opening celebration, Blink Fitness will donate 50 one-year memberships, worth over $10,000, to CASA for Children of Essex County, an organization dedicated to promoting the welfare of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse, neglect or abandonment by providing a safety net of support, advocacy and mentorship.
"CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children of Essex County is excited to welcome Blink Fitness to the Newark community," said CASA for Children of Essex County Interim Executive Director, Julie Cerf. "We are very grateful for the opportunity to provide memberships to our Volunteer Advocates and staff who work tirelessly to give Essex County's foster children a voice."

"We are excited to open our doors, bringing our Mood Above Muscle philosophy to the Newark community," said Milton Olivero, Club Manager. "We're sure that Blink will become a healthy, happy hub of activity in the neighborhood."
Occupying a historically significant building previously functioning as a bank, the newest Blink Fitness facility will boast a broad offering of top-of-the-line strength equipment that includes free weights, plates, and machines for upper body, lower body, and core. A secluded area for lighter workouts as well as a wide variety of premium cardio machines and a multi-use space for additional exercises, stretching, and functional training is housed in what was formerly the bank vault. Members can access this area through the original curved opening.
Certified personal trainers will be available for those members who wish to create a custom workout experience tailored to their personal goals. As a gym that promises to provide a premium experience to all who join, memberships are available for as low as $15 per month with a free start up personal training session.
Blink Fitness will bring its Mood Above Muscle™ philosophy to its newest locations, celebrating the idea that exercise is not only about looking good, but also about feeling good. Blink Fitness strives to make working out fun and uplifting by creating a Feel Good Experience®, which comes to life in each gym through a commitment to providing contemporary and colorful design, elevated customer service, relentless focus on cleanliness, energizing music and confidence-boosting training programs.
