Dear Jeff’s Quest Members,

 My family and I started Jeff’s Quest in September of 2018 with the goal of being the cleanest, most friendly, goal-oriented fitness center in Northwest Bergen County. We have been operating upscale fitness facilities since 1971, with our inaugural opening of the first full-service fitness center during that time, Quest 1 on Route 17 N in Ramsey. Since that time, we have prided ourselves in growing our Membership base and delivering the best fitness experience possible. Since the pandemic began, we have done our best to keep Jeff’s Quest open, operating during the hours when you need us the most while continuing to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and cleanliness.

 Unfortunately, due to pandemic concerns, many of our Members have decided not to continue their Membership and are no longer paying dues. At this time, we have to make the very difficult decision to close Jeff’s Quest and consolidate our two fitness centers into one, Fountain Fitness Center located at 1150 NJ-17, Ramsey in order to continue to provide the highest level of health, wellness and fitness services.

The good news is that just one year ago, we opened Fountain Fitness Center – in the old home of Quest 1. The location used to be a New York Sports Club, but as their locations all went bankrupt, we took over the lease to the facility. We have made tremendous improvements since taking over and are continuing our path to do major renovations now in the locker room area. This location is incredibly clean, well-ventilated, spacious and delivers even more services than you had here at Jeff’s Quest.

 We have a full-time dedicate clean team, more classes, an indoor, climate-controlled swimming pool, basketball courts available all of the time, a 12,000 sq ft turf field, babysitting, a Pilates reformer studio and so much more.

 Jeff’s Quest will close it’s doors on Sunday, October 31th, however Fountain Fitness Center is open and available to you. Group Fitness classes will end at Jeff's Quest on October, 24th and immediately resume at Fountain Fitness Center.

As valued, Jeff’s Quest Members, we will be offering access to Fountain Fitness Center for a 6 (six) month time period to you at the same rate as you have been paying at Jeff’s Quest until April 30th, 2021. We want to give you the ability to try out our new Fitness Center, risk-free for a duration long enough for you to consider joining Fountain Fitness Center as a full-time member.

John Baruc, our General Manager will be moving over to Fountain Fitness Center and Seema Bhatia will continue to run the Group Fitness Class Schedule, as will a number of other staff members, so you will continue to see many of the same friendly faces from Mahwah over in our Ramsey location.

 To shift over Fountain Fitness Center, all you have to do is show up, speak to one of our Staff Members or email us at if you have any questions.

We look forward to continuing to be your partner on your health and wellness journey.
