I joined Brick House after about 4 mths of no exercise post-foot surgery – so I wasn’t exactly in shape to start! So far I have taken Body Pump, RIPPED and Cx Works and I love all these classes. Brick House offers diverse sessions and they are all challenging! Karen (owner) is awesome. She loves her job and genuinely cares about her clients. Case in point: I met her the first day I signed up & didn’t see her again until a week later and she remembered my name and reminded me of modifications I needed to do during class. With all the people she sees every week I really appreciate that she takes the times to make each session personal for everyone. She’s an engaging and tough teacher – totally recommend her Body Pump class. Kat is also fantastic. She teaches high energy RIPPED & Cx Works. I haven’t had a class with Aaron yet but I hear he’s famous for his grueling sessions – I will update after I’ve survived a class! Overall, this is a friendly gym with welcoming staff and classmates. It’s a positive place to work out and even if you don’t enjoy exercise you will enjoy being put through your paces with the team at Brick House in Ellicott City.
