|Chapter 3: The Health Guru|
Holistic health is the seasoned Health Guru’s choice approach. Baltimore is a rarity; not only do we have the top doctors in the country, but also thriving alternative medicine and fitness networks. The Canton neighborhood is on the east side of the waterfront, centrally located between all of the quintessential spots you’ll want to be near.
The Merritt Athletic Club is a sleekly styled gym that offers state of the art facilities including squash quarts, an indoor track, and personal trainers. The outdoor pool is a popular place for members to cool down on a hot summer day, where you can enjoy the indoor/outdoor café. Or, join a group fitness class like pilates, spin, or aquatics. After a workout, treat yourself to the full service day spa. It’s all under one roof at the Merritt. A few blocks away is PUSH511, the neighborhood Crossfit gym, if the cult-like workout is more your style.
Just west of Canton reveals Lululemon Athletica, Lush, and the beloved YogaWorks. At YogaWorks, you can practice with seasoned yoga instructors who offer a plethora of classes. Choose a cleansing hot vinyasa, Kundalini, or meditation class. The breadth of yoga offered affords the opportunity to find exactly the type of class you prefer.
To the south, you’ll find the Baltimore Dragon Boat Club. Never heard of Dragon Boat racing? It’s a 2,500 year old team sport, that involves participants of all ages paddling in long canoe-like boats. The mission of dragon boating is less about racing, and more about team building. The BDBC is affiliated with Catholic Charities and the Breast Cancer Foundation, as they regularly fundraise on these organizations’ behalf. The Baltimore headquarters are located at the Under Armor waterfront.
A step north, visit Mend Acupuncture, which now has two locations. Mend offer’s both walk-in and scheduled appointments, a smart feature that offers flexibility and ease on your quest for well-being. When you desire traditional medicine, take comfort in the fact that Baltimore is home to Johns Hopkins University and Medical System, where you can seek out the best quality medical care.
