Club Metro USA believes that it takes more than rows of exercise machines and a couple of dumbbells to create a desirable workout experience. At all of their Club Metro USA locations throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, founders Emile Farina and Mike Sullivan strive to treat their members less like anonymous gym grunters and more like guests at a stress-free vacation resort. The calorie-eliminating haven features a streamlined decor and innovative workout equipment, along with classes and programs for all skill levels, including yoga, boxing, and dancing, along with amenities such as personal trainers, tanning booths, a juice bar, and a Kids’ Club playroom for unleashed toddlers.
