About ISF

Established in 2016, Ideal Strength & Fitness has been training the Morris Plains Community & the surrounding area on becoming stronger and healthier.

ISF is a 4000sqft "Training" focused "Private" fitness studio. ISF offers our own designed group training program the "Ideal50", Personal Training & Saturday Bootcamp. In most big box fitness centers, your money is spent on a membership and you are left with figuring out what to do. What makes ISF stand out is the fact that your investment is with fitness coaches that will train, guide and help you reach your fitness goals. Our Fitness Coaches are friendly, knowledgeable and here to provide you with results. You will always be working with a Nationally Accredited Certified Personal Trainer or Fitness Coach. 

Our Members are driven, friendly and what makes our Fitness Studio the best in Morris County.

Customer Testimonials


Maggie Mclean

The owner and trainers are amazing! Makes everyone feel like part of the family. The classes are perfect for any level of physical ability with no judgement. Could not be happier to be apart of ISF for the past year!

Keren Teitelbaum

I did personal training with Mike for a year. Fun & challenging workouts in an ultra clean and friendly environment, with top notch equipment. Every session was customized and tailored to my needs. I cant wait to try the Bootcamp next! Mike and the staff truly care about their clients and the Ideal Strength & Fitness community.

Dillon Hoover

I have been going to ISF since the summer and I love every class I have taken! Each one is different and challenging, so you never get the same workout twice. During each class there are exercises for every part of the body—arms, legs, core, etc. I also do the personal training with Mike and he has done an amazing job at listening to what my goals are and catering each session towards meeting them. I am so glad I cancelled my chain gym membership because I get a lot more out of my membership here. I would definitely recommend ISF to anyone looking for an awesome workout!

Christine Kelly

I have been a member for 3 1/2 years and continue to be challenged in every class. The trainers stress safety, proper form, and provide modifications so the classes work for all fitness levels. Prices are extremely reasonable and there are different plans, depending on how often you can attend. Owners Mike and Andrea and all of the trainers are fantastic - knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging. Can't say enough good things about them. It's a really welcoming community for all fitness levels and ages. I drive 45 minutes to attend classes because ISF is the best around. Try a class - you won't regret it!

Stacey Phillips

Definitely a 5 star facility. ISF is the place to be. So glad I found them. Everyone makes you feel at home and comfortable. Best bootcamp style facility you’ll ever find.

Common Questions

Q: "Training can be intense, how do I keep up?"

A: "ISF Coaches are here to encourage you, but always go at your own pace, pick up intensity when you feel you can work hard while maintaining excellent form and increase weights when needed."

Q: "How big is a typical session?"

A: "Sessions always vary in size depending on the time of day. Max size is limited to 12 during the weekdays and 24 for the Weekend Bootcamp."
