The Nutrition and Weight Management cost is $39 per session for members, $49 for non members. The Stress Management and Mental Wellness sessions is the same price.

BODYCOMBAT

We had our new BODYCOMBAT instructor Kristi King start her class this past Monday evening at 6pm. What is BODYCOMBAT? See below and you can sign up for class on your Merritt Clubs app under Group Classes 2 hours before class.

BODYCOMBAT is a high-energy martial arts-inspired workout that is totally non-contact. Punch and kick your way to fitness and burn up to 570 calories** in a class. No experience needed. Learn moves from Karate, Taekwondo, Boxing, Muay Thai, Capoeira and Kung Fu. Release stress, have a blast and feel like a champ. Bring your best fighter attitude and leave inhibitions at the door.

BODYCOMBAT is available as either a 55, 45 or 30-minute workout.
