BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Locally owned and operated, Fitness Club Merritt Island, located at 1450 North Courtenay Pkwy. Suite 15 in the Victoria Square Shoppes is one of the oldest fitness centers in Brevard County.

“Our full-service facility provides an ideal space for all ages to learn how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our gym has everything you need to help you reach your wellness goals. We were fortunate enough to move to North Courtenay and increase our space to 21,000 square feet. By making this change, we could offer our members so much more under one roof. »
