THE WORKOUTS ARE IN GROUPS, BUT THE FOCUS IS ON YOU

At Merritt Clubs, we believe there’s much more to getting fit than maxing out your bench press or reading magazines on a stationary bike. Our mission is to change the way people think about fitness. Besides building muscles, we work to build stronger communities, healthier families, and a culture where active lifestyles are the norm. Right away, you’ll notice a difference from other fitness clubs, and before long, a difference in yourself.

Heather Jordan

I grew up thinking you needed to play team sports in order to be athletic. It wasn’t until I joined Merritt as a member that I realized being athletic was more than just throwing, dribbling, or scoring goals. As an instructor, I help people unlock the inner athleticism they didn’t know they had!

Les Mills Group Fitness, NSPA, Post Natal Fitness Specialist

If you had to run a marathon in 9 months, you would train for it, right? I help women develop the muscles and stamina needed for labor and ease some common pains associated with pregnancy. After baby (no matter how many months or years that is) I help women regain core strength and become stronger than ever.

JC Montminy

Solid cycle classes start with a strong playlist. The music in my classes tells a story…a voyage through outer space, a celebration on Bourbon Street, or resilience through a challenging time. When the music allows a class to immerse themselves in the moment, it’s easy to give a full physical effort from start to finish.

LET’S GET IT FAMILY!

My classes are modified for diverse experience levels, with a focus on safety and personal comfort (alignment), while keeping a chill vibe of empowerment.
