GROUP FITNESS

From beginners to seasoned athletes, Merritt fitness classes provide a variety of activities and intensity levels. Our expert instructors are attentive to every member’s individual needs, making even our most popular classes feel personal and friendly.

PLATES CAFE

Enjoy American cuisine with a delicious Greek twist that your taste-buds won’t forget anytime soon. Throw into the mix our extensive selection of wines, fully stocked bar, and impeccable service, and you might just have found your new favorite happy hour spot.

SPORTS COURTS

Get in a fast-paced game of squash or racquetball, or practice your signature double-clutch reverse layup on the basketball court. (Racquetball clinics are every 2nd Wednesday of the month. Check the club for any updates on the schedule)

TRX STUDIO

Unlike other training systems, TRX Suspension Training uses your own body’s weight to create resistance. Emphasizing core strength and overall conditioning, TRX is a unique way to get a full-body workout with just one piece of equipment.
