After learning that our clubs were closing on March 16th, it was clear that Merritt would need to pivot quickly and take fast action to keep our members engaged and active. Despite having no experience with teaching group fitness from a virtual platform, I reached out to our Marketing team a few days later to get working on a plan for our first virtual classes, which went live on Wednesday morning. In just about 36 hours after our closing announcement, we had launched a brand-new element for Merritt Clubs – virtual fitness!

We're kicking off one of my favorite times of year – Les Mills Launch Week (I might even argue that it’s better than Christmas)! Each quarter we receive a new release with brand new music and moves that we get to present for our members to keep our classes fresh. What makes it more exciting is that we get to team teach and work with some of our other fabulous Merritt instructors who we don’t get to see on a regular basis and who can spice up the experience and bring a little extra energy for our members.
