Garfield YMCA has promoted healthy lifestyles, youth development, and social responsibility for more than eight decades. While the organization has built new facilities, this core mission remains the same. Instructors teach fitness and swim classes for both kids and adults, and they coach competitive swimming teams at two locations in Garfield. The staff also keeps kids active and safe during before- and after-school care programs.
Tabata Bootcamp’s motto is quality over quantity, and certified fitness instructor Stacy DiGiacomo takes this to heart as she pushes her patrons to reach their weight-loss and fitness goals. To help them carve fitter frames, she leads high-intensity cross-training sessions in 30-minute intervals, with a focus on getting an effective total-body workout in a short period of time. She targets patrons’ upper, lower, and core strength with exercises that consist of 20-second microbursts of intensive movement, followed by 10-second periods of rest. These workouts are designed to speed up the body’s metabolism to ensure optimal caloric burn after exercising and can multiply the muscle-building effects more effectively than regularly dreaming about being a world-champion weightlifter. For well-rounded results, she also offers nutritional guidance and arms patrons with quick workouts they can complete in the comfort of their own homes.
At Crossfit GSP, a team of knowledgeable coaches boosts the strength, conditioning, and athletic skill levels of its participants. They do so through CrossFit, a discipline that follows the theory of constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement and incorporates components of gymnastics and weightlifting into one rigorous workout. During each session, novice and experienced clients test their fitness limits inside the modern interior of a Reebok-branded gym. When they are not reaching new fitness goals, athletes can take advantage an 8,000-square-foot gym that features Rogue and Muscle Driver equipment as well as guest services offering Paleo meal plans and rehab regimens.
At Strive Health & Fitness, Tabata Bootcamp instructor Stacy DiGiacomo facilitates weight loss and fitness goals through breakthrough cross-training methods.

In addition to offering revolutionary training methods, the certified personal trainers and instructors at Strive Health & Fitness aim to make the 33,000 total square feet of indoor basketball courts, yoga studios, cardio floor with treadmills, elliptical trainers, rowers, and lifecycles, a cozy, welcoming environment. Patrons can drop their kids off in the childcare area before heading to one of three group fitness studios for classes such as spin, Zumba, cardio kickboxing, mat Pilates, and boot camp, or beelining straight to the free-weight and circuit-training equipment. Guests can enjoy vegetable juice drinks, protein shakes, and healthy salads at the café and juice bar. The facility also boasts spacious men's and women's locker rooms with a sauna for detoxifying the body after a workout.
