Since June 2014, Clayton Arnold and his fellow coaches at Cross Fit Execution?located inside Gold's Gym Eldersburg?have lead exercisers through CrossFit's workout of the day. Daily exercises typically consist of functional movements that incorporate Rogue Fitness kettlebells, pull-up stations, and barbells. As an added bonus, exercisers enjoy full amenities such as showers and saunas. Additional fitness services include personal training and nutrition coaching.
The team members at Soldierfit are just like anyone else?dads and moms, sons and daughters, neighbors and friends. Where they set themselves apart, though, is at the gym. At Soldierfit, this tight-knit group carves out a community of likeminded folks who pursue both the physical and intangible benefits of fitness. Confidence, camaraderie, and character are all natural byproducts of Soldierfit classes, which are heavily rooted in intense military-style workouts. During sessions, exercisers must overcome any number of challenges, from drills and calisthenics to body weight exercises and weight training.
Recognizing the quirks of peoples' exercise routines—some feel intimidated by other exercisers, others prefer the support of a group—Kenneth Reed and his staff at Fit For Life Personal Training stage their workouts in private and small group settings. For even more community, exercisers can sign up for one of Fit for Life's boot camps or upbeat Zumba dance-fitness classes. To supplement workouts with healthful foods, the facility also supplies nutritional counseling.

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.
Owner Anita Ammon?s disinterest in logging jogging hours on the treadmill led her to develop Xpose?s approach to keeping fitness fun. The class schedule offers 50-minute sessions organized into varying degrees of difficulty by the cheerful staff. Beginner sessions prep strengthening, walking, and transitional moves while advanced offerings focus on climbing, inverted moves, intricate spins, and introductory astrophysics. Choose the classes that are right for you, and then call ahead to make a reservation. Both pole and chair classes employ natural movements to increase flexibility, improve cardiovascular fitness, and produce long, lean muscles while maintaining a fun environment.
