“When the pandemic hit and New York Sports Club gave us notice that they were closing their Ramsey location, we knew exactly what to do. We had been trying to take over that club for ages and restore it back to its original condition as an upscale club,” says Rita A. Knutsen, CEO & Founder.
“Our neighbors and community are in dire need of a community center, a safe place where families and friends can enjoy time together, get fit, get out of the house and recharge in a safe, clean, comfortable and friendly environment – while being able to follow all New Jersey State Guidelines,” Knutsen continues.
The Knutsen family opened one of the very first state-of-the-art fitness facilities in Bergen County as Quest 1 in 1976 in this exact location. Now, they are using more than three decades of industry experience in opening Fountain Spa & Fitness Center – offering total wellness, fitness and recreational programs in a sanitary, newly renovated, high-quality, relaxed environment. The family has ensured that Fountain Fitness continues to carry out the long-standing family tradition of clean, safe, warm and welcoming services.
The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center will serve its community members with an unparalleled health and wellness experience in a close and convenient location. The 50,000 square-foot destination will provide everything members could dream of in the areas of healthy living and sports for individuals of all ages at an affordable rate.
