All of us here at Baltimore's best gym and fitness club want to remind everyone that it’s Emotional Wellness Month. And as many family doctors have pointed out over the years, the condition of our bodies has the potential to impact our emotions. So this is the perfect week to sign up for a gym and fitness club membership.

The American Academy of Family Physicians recommends physical exercise, healthy eating, forming social bonds and developing relaxation routines as some of the best ways to achieve emotional wellness. And you’ll find opportunities to do all four at our Merritt Athletic Clubs locations. Just look at our list of health and wellness programs alone. It includes, but isn’t restricted to the following:


We’ve also got a short list of fitness club programs and amenities designed to help people toss away their stress. It includes group fitness, yoga, pilates, dance, aquatics, gymnastics and massage. Of course some folks may find sweating the stress out during a kickboxing class or elliptical workout helpful too.

Plus, there’s something for all members of the family, including the kids. They may enjoy our XRKade, camps, birthday parties and classes. Parents, on the other hand, rave about our onsite childcare services. They make it possible for moms and dads to get a workout in even when their kids’ regular babysitter is out of town.

To learn more about them and the other benefits of joining Baltimore’s best gym during Emotional Wellness Month, please contact us today. And when you do call or e-mail us, be sure to ask about our free e-book offer. It will help provide you with the secrets to achieving excellent health.

As an ACE Certified Trainer I was very skeptical with the A.L.I.V.E. Protocol. It challenged everything that I had studied and practiced, and how could that be, I have received praises and witnessed results through my clients hard work. So, I had to challenge the "Phil Kaplan" way. I set out to earn my Certification as an A.L.I. V. E. Trainer all the while checking and double checking my learnings with registered Nurses and family Doctors. When I couldn't find discrepancies in his material, I set out to run the program in my own personal workout sessions. And here we are today. I am proud to report that I am lighter, leaner, more flexible, and overall a much happier person. My weight dropped from 152 to 143 and my body fat plunged. At 42, and a Personal trainer, I looked great for my age. After including the Phil Kaplan's A.L.I.V.E. protocol, I am still a personal Trainer, Still 42. The difference is I look like I’m 24, I cannot wait for my next physical. I am excited to see the results of my blood work and the look on my Doctors face! HA. I am so proud to be an A.L.I.V.E. Personal Trainer.
