About Us

Our mission is to educate and inspire others to break through perceived limitations and excel in all aspects of life.

Absolute Strength is a connection between Body, Mind and Spirit.

The BODY is trained with constantly varied, high intensity functional movements.

Allowing the MIND to break through previous self imposed limits with the help and camaraderie of the pack.

The SPIRIT is therefore forged into one of great faith in oneself and in one’s abilities.

Absolute Strength Gym, our Long Branch and South Amboy strength gym, began as an outdoor boot camp as the founders, Rob Esposito and Jerry Andrews, wanted nothing more than to spread fitness to people outside of the gym. They did this while they were personal training at your typical “globo-gym.” When their managers discovered their off-premises training, they were fired; however, they did not let their unemployment fester. Instead, the two friends teamed up to create Absolute Strength Gym (We happily thank those managers for firing Rob and Jerry).

Absolute Strength began in a 900 square foot store front, running private and semi-private group training sessions. Eight months after moving in and quickly outgrowing the space, Rob and Jerry invested in a 3,000 square foot warehouse and affiliated with CrossFit. They were affiliated as CrossFit 732 under Absolute Strength Gym. After moving to a larger space, Rob and Jerry were then able to hire more coaches and offer more programs to fully appease the appetites of their hungry athletes.

The community quickly grew and Rob decided to open a second affiliate in his hometown: Long Branch CrossFit. Within a few months of Long Branch’s grand opening, CrossFit 732 moved to an even larger space in a 7,000 square foot warehouse. To this day, the communities in both locations, Long Branch and South Amboy, continue to flourish. Just recently, Long Branch CrossFit moved into a larger facility, further expanding the Absolute Strength Gym community.

The Absolute Strength community is not only strong in body, but mind and spirit as well. Are you ready to become a part of our team?
