Hello, my name is Kelly Bryant and I’m the head of our Sports Specific Training Program (SST) here at the Merritt Athletic Clubs in Towson.
Gyms in Baltimore offer the perfect way to break out of one’s body-sculpting routine. Sure, there are free weights, trainers and muscle-building classes on hand. They’re a great way to define one’s frame but so are resistance bands and they may be used at gyms in Baltimore too. Don’t groan and roll your eyes. We’re not talking about 80s style aerobics classes.

The brain ages, and you start to experience that fog where it's hard to remember names, and post-it notes become your best friend. Thankfully, a recent study found that exercise may be the key to preventing aging on a cellular level.
