The MAC Celebrates National Fitness and Sports Month

catch of the day fish (2)So, apparently, May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, and has been for some time. Somehow that got past us until this year. But it is fitting, since May is basically the last possible month to spend hitting the gym (or yoga studio, or running route, or Richard Simmons DVD) before beach season. Doing their part to help us observe National Physical Fitness & Sports Month is the MAC (Maryland Athletic Club & Wellness Center), which will open the doors at all of its locations to the public this month, issuing seven-day passes and hosting several community classes free of charge.

“Every day of every month, the team at the MAC supports our community as they work towards leading healthier, more active lives,” says Tim Rhode, co-owner of MAC.  “We realize how challenging it can be for some to make healthy lifestyle changes and how important it is to have the support of those around you. This May, during National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, we are asking the public to grab a friend, a family member, a colleague, or neighbor and to participate in a class and enjoy our state-of-the-art facilities.” Interesting… it’s not just about making an individual commitment to fitness; they’re asking that we do so with a buddy. Smart move, considering that studies have repeatedly shown that those who try to lose weight or get fit with a friend tend to have better results and stick with it longer. Over the course of the month, the MAC will offer free 7-day passes to all of its locations, and free classes such as boot camps and spin classes. Sure, it might not be the answer to all of your get-ready-for-summer needs, but dang, it sure is a great way to start.
