Maryland power house and female business owner, speaker, author Lynne Brick, RN and her husband and business partner Victor Brick recently hosted the grand opening of their new 58,000 square foot Brick Bodies Padonia health club on Saturday, April 27th at the Broad Street Market Spring Fest. The festivities included giveaways, a ribbon cutting ceremony and several VIP’s including Former Ravens Kicker Matt Stover, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger & Chairman of the Board of Mackenzie Commercial Real Estate, Clark Mackenzie among others including Ravens players Defensive Tackle Bryan Hall & Offensive Tackle Jah Reid (Ravens)who were on hand to help kick start the celebration.
The state of the art facility is managed by none other than Vicki Brick, the couples daughter and an active part of the company management team. Hundreds of people posted for the event and toured the new gorgeous state of the art facility which will be giving serious competition to nearby (and also woman-led) MAC Athletics. Lynne out of breath from doing an incredible demo (where she once again proved that age is just a number) shared the following thoughts.
“Victor and I have been overwhelmed with the response we have received since we opened the doors on January 7th. We are excited to celebrate this ribbon cutting ceremony with all our members as well as the surrounding community.”
Her husband and CEO of Brick Bodies Fitness Services added
“It is only fitting that Clark Mackenzie is present for the ribbon cutting ceremony as he, along with Tom Whipple sold us and helped finance the original Brick Bodies Padonia 28 years ago.”says Victor Brick, Owner/Founder.
