My 3 year old daughter birthday party was ruined when the manager started screaming at my guests to leave on 2/8/2015. Basically I had to give everyone cake to go because the gym closed at 5pm. My party was from 3 to 5pm and I was running

I normally go to their Cranbrook location, but there has been an odd transformation that has occurred at this particular club; which myself and most of my friends there find very distasteful.

Unfortunately, over recent times this gym is now home to sometimes 40 or more adolescent high school boys running a muck throughout the gym! Their presence there makes one feel they're back in a high school gymnasium and most of my women friends find their presence unnerving. I don't know what the deal is but would definitely not recommend this gym- either you can't use the equipment- or you're being run into by some teenage boys. Terrible-

BEWARE of Merritt Athletic Club!!!!

Support and facilities at Merritt are okay for a gym, but on-site staff is not able to address all billing concerns. They are hamstrung from doing things like printing out invoices (though I was able to get mine, they told me that I should have to get it through accounting).

When it came time to cancel my membership (I have to travel more for work, and can't use my membership), I was informed that I didn't resign my membership in the 10 days per my contract and would be billed an extra month (that I can't use). Since I joined on the 9th, 18 months prior, I figured it had to be 10 days prior to the 9th. It turns out, they adjust your billing date to the first of the month. I believe the new membership contracts make that 30 days prior, rather than 10.

With all of the reputable athletic clubs around, I'd think very hard before sigining a contract with Merritt. Find one that values you as a customer, rather than a statistic in a big billing machine.

Equipment is old and out-dated. Facilities are sub-par. Employees aren't helpful. Theft is a problem in their locker rooms. Layout is terrible (try getting past the racketball players....it's a disaster).

We had been given a special 2-week trial certificate to Merritt in Towson, so my husband and I decided to try them out. Upon arriving there, it took about 30 minutes to be attended to. When a membership sales lady finally came to us, she gave us the impression that she was NOT eager to have us join as members. The rest of the staff had the same impression. We did come back the remaining of the first week and their impressions never changed. Therefore, we did not return for the 2nd week and decided to explore another gym, Brick Bodies in Perry Hall. We were given a totally different reception there and one year later, we are active members at the gym still. I can't help but wonder if race was an issue at Merritt. (My husband and I are an interracial couple) I guess we will never know, yet I don't care to return to find out either.

PROS: it does have lots of exercise equipment and is larger than most gyms.
CONS: the staff was not courteous at all.
