In a time where physical, mental and emotional health is not only desired, but extraordinarily necessary, Brick City Strength is a stronghold for the Newark community. From bolstering health through group classes and personal training to reaching out to our young men and women through Project Elevate, Brick City Strength is pushing health as a top priority.

With over 10 years of personal training and group training experience, and an array of different areas of training and education, Brick City Strength brings expertise and solid, caring personal interactions to each and every client that walks through the door. BCS is not just a training facility, but a community-oriented space where education of the mind, body and spirit is held as the ultimate goal. 



We are conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Newark, just steps away from the Prudential Arena. We utilize outdoor space around the Teachers Village area and nearby parks for those workouts that take you outside or on a long run.

Our community unites individuals from all backgrounds and fitness levels. We offer Discipleship for newcomers, group classes, and personal training that use variable training programs to get the most out of your time with us. In each of our classes, movements and weights are scalable based upon ability.

You will realize there aren’t rows of treadmills, ellipticals, or awkward adjustable machines but rather we show you how to utilize your own body as the machine we are blessed with at birth! Our gym is filled with barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells, as well as some towers and air bikes. We have pull-up bars, stacked wooden boxes, and adequate space to use these tools to become better every day.

Our open space is indicative of a clean slate - you always have the opportunity to write your own future.

With over 10 years of personal training and group training experience, and an array of different areas of training and education, Brick City Strength brings expertise and solid, caring personal interactions to each and every client that walks through the door. We have 1-hour group classes, 30-minute HIIT classes, and a few other specialty movement classes to offer our clients.

Take a look at some of the services that we offer and see which program is right for you.



We know that picking the right gym is an important decision. We invite you to try a free one-on-one session with one of our coaches to experience what we have to offer, check out our facility, and meet some of our members.



Following your introductory session, we hope you’ll have an understanding of what our group training is all about and the positive atmosphere at our facility. If it’s group training that you’re seeking, our fun, yet focused classes will keep you engaged and always have you excited to come back. We take our clients goals very seriously and through the interaction of our community members, you will come to quickly find out that you are not alone on your mission for better health. 

You will always be challenged and pushed, but will always leave with a sense of accomplishment and constant desire to be better!



Though a big draw to Brick City Strength Gym is for our group classes, we offer much more than group classes. We offer Personalized Training (PT) programs and Specialty classes for anyone looking to get fitter and stronger, address weaknesses, lose weight, fix injuries, or any other physical goals you may have.

We understand that taking that first step into the gym can be a daunting task: with our personal training program, we make it rewarding by building a training program strictly for YOU. Your coach will take you through a comprehensive assessment, talk to you about your goals, and from there, create an individualized plan. The workouts are fun, challenging, and engaging, and you will feel amazing knowing that you are getting the right training for you – whether you’re just starting out, or you’re already a well-developed athlete.


One size does not fit all when it comes to addressing weaknesses and building a better you. We hope you’ll let us help you get to where you want to be!


Project Elevate's mission is straight-forward: to  give inner city high school seniors, and possibly those currently seeking a springboard into a health-mnded profession, the opportunity to change their health and future for the better by gaining a comprehensive knowledge of training and nutrition, and, upon completion of the Project, the ability to earn an income as a Personal Trainer.
