CLUB FEATURES

We have implemented new protocols to make every Merritt Club a safe, comfortable place to get a worry-free workout. Our Fort Avenue Club offers an outdoor pool, expansive cycle studio, hot yoga studio, state-of-the-art equipment, and boxing. Take a look around to see all of the changes we have made.

TAKE A TOUR

OUTDOOR POOL

Take a plunge—or a class—in our outdoor pool, or just hang out for a fun and refreshing afternoon.

HOT YOGA

In this vigorous vinyasa flow class, the studio is heated to 85-90 degrees, softening the tendons, ligaments, and muscles which allows for a deeper stretch.

PILATES

Improve your strength, coordination, and balance from the core out. In our Pilates classes, every day is legs, abs, arms, hips, and back day.

BOXING

Merritt Ringside is a fitness-based boxing workout that uses heavy bags, boxing training techniques and bootcamp style cardio drills. This class will make you sweat and leave you feeling like a champ.
