Merritt Athletic Club in Eldersburg!
Posted in the Sykesville Forum
#1 Dec 3, 2010
My wife and I are wondering if joining the club is a good value for $150 per month? Yes, they have all the bells and whistles like a pool, basketball court, etc. The challenge is: we wouldn't use the pool or play basketball. Plus, we were looking for something a little more economical. The other clubs in the area Athens and Triangle Fitness aren't really up to date as far as the latest equipment and amenities. Both clubs are about $40-$45 per month, but not much to get excited about. Which brings me back to my question: Is Merritt Athletic Club worth the price to be a member? Any comments are welcomed...thank you!

This is an old post but still a relevant response.
High price point for amenities and service and comparative gyms like Columbia Association and Lifetime Fitness in Columbia (was a member for 9 years) offer more amenities and better service. Athens and Triangle give yoi what you need and offer good value. Golds gym slated to move into Carroltowne Mall.....previous ecperience at Golds in Glen Burnie was positive and i was offered price of $9 per month (no typo). Was a member for over 1 year.
Parking is HORRID at peak times and mgt doesnt care and doesn't tell employees to park in lower or adjacent lot.
Interior space needs remodel...un utilized space some huge areas can be used to correct overcrowded machines and more weights added. Also mgt needs to add key weight machines they don't have.
Food vendor sells junk food and sets a bad example to clientele. There is a persistant fly problem throughout warm months.
Management is obsessed with advertising and selling memberships rather than focus on quality of service. Place is setup like a car dealership with booths.....disturbing. D&B report reports this gym earns between 5-10 million dollars which is more than enough to correct problems, mgt prefers to kick the can down the road and is against any positive improvements to correct issues.
Better to go to Athens or wait for Golds.
Save your money!!!
