In our experience, working out is a great way to reduce stress and achieve work-life balance. Fitness clubs can be intimidating but we felt welcome and comfortable while visiting The MAC in Harbor East!
Sharon and Jim gave our Maryland Concierge Team a tour of their club and even let us try out some of the equipment. Charm School has given our concierges the opportunity to sight-see, sample and sweat!
The MAC is located in the heart of Harbor East in downtown Baltimore. They are surrounded by plenty of shops, restaurants and attractions but once you step inside you forget that you are on the second floor of a downtown high-rise.
We would also like to note that each studio, locker room and seating area is nicely decorated and makes you feel right at home. The MAC’s facility has artwork, vases and warm painted walls which helps minimize the cold, industrial feel often associated with a gym.
The MAC has convenient weekday and weekend hours and is open seven days a week (with the exception of Christmas and Easter). Memberships are on a month-to-month basis that way you are not locked into a yearlong contract if you are not satisfied.
If you are interested in a wellness program for your company, we love the idea of the MAC’s Corporate Fit Challenge which is six weeks of exercise, personal coaching, exercise advice, food guides and more.
They offer a lengthy list of classes which are included with your membership but there are also a lot of great classes that members can pay to join and work with a private trainer – TRX, Kinesis, Pilates and more!
One of our Baltimore concierges, Katherine, is a member at the MAC and loves that there are classes available for every fitness level. “The MAC offers high intensity Boot Camp, Spin, and Insanity classes, as well as low impact Aquatic and Yoga classes. There is something for everyone to make working out more fun.”
But do you know what surprised us the most? The MAC in Harbor East boasts 4,000 members but the gym never felt crowded and no one was waiting for equipment. The impeccable service and welcoming atmosphere make this fitness club an attractive option.
