The Maryland Athletic Club is pumping up its Timonium facility this month with new workout machines and a makeover for its exercise studios and basketball court.
The focus of the renovation will be to allot more space for free-motion equipment, General Manager Michael Meehan says. That includes stability balls, medicine balls, and kettle balls that allow members to challenge their balance. It will also include resistance machines that rely on cables that let the user move around freely, rather than the restricted movements that are typical of traditional weight machines.
The Timonium MAC
, which celebrates its 15-year anniversary in November, will shut down for a week in August during the renovation.
The gym is also sprucing up the floors in its yoga and pilates room, basketball court and swimming pool.
New elliptical trainers, computerized bikes and cycles that work out the upper body will go into the gym when it reopens Aug. 29.
The MAC has two other locations, in Harbor East and Hunt Valley.
