What's In A Name?
What does Meraki mean anyway? Meraki is a word modern Greeks use to to describe what happens when you leave a piece of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) in your work. When you love doing something, anything, so much that you put something of yourself in it. Courtney chose the name of the studio for this reason and to honor her grandmother and her Greek heritage.
Meraki Active is an intimate, non-intimidating boutique fitness studio in Aurora, Ohio. After years of training in corporate settings and larger studios, when it came time to choose a space for Meraki Active, Courtney made a conscious decision to open a studio that would focus on the quality of classes being taught instead of the amount of people that could be packed in a studio. Small group class sizes create a sense of community, and allow our trainers to truly pay attention to everyone that attends class, give modifications and extra motivation.
