Designed by founder and renaissance woman Lynne Brick and her accomplished husband, Victor, Brick Bodies and Lynne Brick's health clubs share a fitness cornucopia of group classes, personal-training sessions, and women’s health tips. They stock their workout facilities with premium cardio and strength-training equipment, as well as offer amenities that may include pools, childcare services, and volcano-free saunas. Each of the seven locations sports its own personality, including the Owings Mills and Belvedere facilities, which operate as all-female communities.
The Brick's also employ a team of certified instructors, who lead more than 30 types of group fitness classes, allowing students of all skill levels access to sessions that range from low-impact workouts, such as BodyVive, to more intense courses, such as the kickboxing-inspired BodyCombat classes.
At Morning Breeze Yoga Studio, certified yoga instructor Jennifer Lerche leads students of all skill levels through body-bending yoga sessions as well as torso-tightening balance-ball and core-bodywork classes. Students delve into deep breathing, proper alignment, and a wide range of poses during mixed yoga classes. Sessions build flexibility and strengthen legs, backs, and shoulders, readying students for lucrative careers as concert-piano jugglers. In balance-ball and core-bodywork classes, held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, pupils tone their midsections using a variety of props including balls, hand weights, resistance bands, and fake mustaches. The studio supplies all the necessary equipment. In addition to providing counsel on the yoga floor, Morning Breeze's sagacious instructor also offers advice on healthy eating and well-being with an eye toward improving participants' sense of balance in their day-to-day lives.
