With 24-hour access, aerobic and mixed-martial-arts group classes, and well-appointed facilities, Club One Fitness aims to be the ideal backdrop for any workout routine. The schedule of group exercise classes includes yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Boxers spar with other members or against the gym's stash of weighted bags during boxing classes for adults and tykes, who learn the pugilistic art in an Olympic-sized ring that, according to the Washington Post, "bears no resemblance to the worn, dingy boxing gyms of Hollywood movies, even though some Gold and Silver Gloves fighters, and a few pros, have trained there."
The staff of personal trainers and athletes show new members the ropes with three complimentary orientation sessions sessions; during the first, staffers talk to new members about their workout history and goals, and show them how to use Life Fitness treadmills, LifeCycle exercise bikes, elliptical cross-trainers, and stair climbers.

On the third and final visit, staffers give members their own personalized workout program, calibrated to help them reach their goals. From there, members can forge their own fitness paths or buddy up with a personal trainer.
Staffed by trained personnel, the bright and roomy childcare center keeps young ones engaged with toys, a big-screen TV, and a PlayStation.

The Trawler Fest Boat Show is an in-water showcase of more than 60 cruising motorboats and also includes a shoreside expo, seminars (at extra cost), and demonstrations of boating equipment and procedures. Baltimore is the last stop on this five-port event, which kicked off back in January in Ft. Lauderdale, hitting San Diego, Anacortes (WA), and Warwick (RI) along the way. Produced by PassageMaker Magazine, Trawler Fest is a playground for boat lubbers and abandoned fish-people looking for a way back home. This deal gives you access to afternoon activities, including interactive demonstrations on topics such as life-raft inflation, man-overboard recovery, and engine-room inspections. Nautical newbies can learn a thing or two from PassageMaker Magazine and Ocean Voyager, two publications included in your complimentary welcome kit, along with a reusable tote bag and an assortment of yachty schwag, which is far less abominable than its homophonic cousin, yeti schwag.
Emily and Philip Vendemmia look after their students by wrangling a massive schedule of more than 72 classes per week spread over three locations. Bolstered by a strong team of certified Bikram yoga instructors, the duo guides students through Bikram’s 90-minute routine, consisting of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Instructors crank each studio’s practice space to a hot and humid 105 degrees to help pupils’ muscles safely sink into deep, healing stretches and purge harmful toxins from the body. Each of the standing and seated poses is designed to work every muscle, ligament, and joint while sending freshly oxygenated vampire food to the organs to help support health and fitness.
