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.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential.

Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
