The MAC’s state-of-the-art clubs offer experienced exercisers and more leisure-inclined visitors fun and encouraging environments in which to blast body fat and tone limbs. Group exercise reigns as MAC’s most popular amenity, and each session bulks muscles, fosters pliability, or burns calories without forcing participants to kiss firebreathers after each meal. The Harbor East locale promotes camaraderie with more than 60 group classes each week, headlined by a slew of Pilates reformer classes. Session pair each participant with a reformer, a Pilates apparatus whose moving parts increase one’s range of motion in order to mimic the waving arms and flailing legs of a cartoon character slipping on a banana on ice. The reformer also helps the Pilates exercises hone in on specific muscles, working to chisel core muscles in order to keep the body aligned, balanced, and strong. The Timonium location presents more than 25 classes in everything from yoga, Pilates, and Zumba to kickboxing and spinning.

The Maryland Athletic Club & Wellness Center
It's hard to be bored at the MAC. With three locations and a host of unique fitness programs, the wellness center has something for even the most indecisive of exercisers. Want to swim in the saltwater lap pools? Play squash on one of the courts? Or start a specialty regimen in the Kinesis, TRX, or Pilates Reformer studio? Committed to a comprehensive wellness program, staffers offer complimentary consultations for new members, as well as nutritional programs. The trainers at MAC Wellness help guests reach their fitness goals while having fun. Athletes looking to restore pre-injury prowess can also dip into one of the therapy pools or whirlpools with the guidance of a personal trainer. MAC also offers a number of programs for children through their Kids Club which offers child care, swimming lessons, and birthday parties.
