Well i dont know how far you are willing to travel. But up Route 1 about 15 minutes from edison in North Brunswick there is Work out WOrld (WOW)
I go to Gold's gym in belleville now, but out of all the gyms i have been to that is the best one. Good people, very clean place (I actually felt safe taking a shower there) new equipment.. Worse comes to worse just go check it out. IT is a bit expensive, but cheaper than NYC sportsclub and its never packed, use whattever whenever.
I Weight Lifted... Then I learned... Now I bodybuild....
