he MAC is a solution-oriented club, says VP Sharon Nevins, offering a variety of programs to help people achieve their goals. Healthy Start is a 60-day program supervised by a nurse that includes two sessions a week with a specialist plus full access to the club. It helps beginners “tiptoe” in to using a club and is referred by lots of local physicians. There’s also a 10-consecutive-day boot camp, the MAC Blast, for those needing a kickstart. Not for sissies! - MAC, Timonium and Harbor East

o from physical therapy patient to participant in small classes taught by PTs. Master Your Back and Master Your Pain are packages including education and exercise on land and water. All bodywork is custom tailored to each client. This is not an athletic club, says Brian Rich, but a medically oriented boutique health club. Pilates and yoga classes for the general public will get everyone back to healthy.

“A

t Lifebridge, our biggest difference is that we’re medically based, part of Northwest/ Sinai hospitals,” says spokesman David Rew. It’s the place to go if you’re out of cardiac rehab, have diabetes, Parkinson’s, or had a joint replacement. But even the physically fit will be challenged in new ways, Rew promises. The club’s faceto-face approach assures you’ll get the advice and support you need for real results. “It’s not just about weight loss, but about flexibility, body fat percentage and range of motion. There are 110 classes a week to choose from, plus aquatic pools and the amenities of a country club.” - Lifebridge, Pikesville
