Merritt Athletic Club
At all nine locations dotting the greater Baltimore area, Merritt Athletic Club gives members the resources they need to make strides, lunges, and leaps toward their personal fitness goals. Though each location features a slightly different array of amenities, members enjoy top-notch exercise options at each, such as laps in the indoor or outdoor pool at the Towson location, group RPM spinning classes at the Canton location, or jumping jacks inside the locker-room showers at the Fort Avenue location. Eight of the nine locations—Eldersburg is the only exception—keep their doors open 24 hours a day, encouraging members to work up a sweat whenever the spirit moves them.
