Visiting Baltimore? Try these!

If you find yourself in Baltimore, there are a number of different avenues you could follow to stay on track.  I’ll use this page to provide updates to different fitness options in the  city.  If you have any suggestions, feel free to message me!

Crossfit Federal Hill

My home gym, Crossfit Federal Hill, is a welcoming community of coaches and athletes.  Next to marrying my wife, joining this community was the best thing I’ve done for myself in 2014.  If you’re visiting Baltimore,  email or call them to let them where you’ve trained.  They love nothing more than to have visitors from other boxes “throw down” with them.  Geo Rockwell (pictured above) and Brian DeLeon are the two owners and simply great guys.

  • Daily WOD
  • Drop in fee: $20/class. Arrive 5 minutes before scheduled class time so we can provide you with a waiver to sign (our insurance friends make us do this) and introduce you to our box.

Merritt Athletic Clubs

I was a member here for about 2 years and used the Fort Ave, Canton and Downtown locations. Fort ave is the smallest of the clubs and Canton is the newest/biggest. All offer fitness classes (Les Mills, Spinning, yoga) and Canton/Fort Ave (may-sept) have pools. Generally, what you would expect from a big box gym and a welcomed option if this is your approach to training at home. Fort ave recently became a 24hr facility.

  • $25 daily, no up charge for classes, pool. Be sure to check in/arrive early for classes
  • ~$70+ month to month

Inner Harbor Promenade

If youre a runner, the Baltimore promenade is a fantastic place for up to 7 or 8 mile jog around the inner harbor. One terminus is at cross and pier side sts in federal hill as shown. The other is in Canton near Linwood and Boston sts. The most clear and dedicated trail is from Federal Hill to Harbor East. The trail is well lit during the evening hours.

Rev Cycle

I’ve always liked spinning. Maybe I’m a sucker for EDM, diaper short spandex and a good, efficient sweat. For whatever the reason, it works for me. Esther and the gang at Rev Cycle will most certainly give you all that and a great experience. The studio offer a few variations on traditional spinning, barre classes, and some post spinning core work. I tried a class and then bought a 6 pack of classes that need to be used in 3 months. There was a discount on the package for whatever reason and that sweetened the deal.

Single class: $18 (in the ballpark of other drop in fees)

Location: McHenry Row, 1718 Whetstone Way, Baltimore, MD
