Washington Sports Clubs - DuPont Circle: what do users think?


G L: Supports individuals following members and blames the victim for the harassment they endured. Canceled their membership for documenting the stalker following them and still charged them for the membership. Very unprofessional on the phone when this situation was being discussed and stated that the victim should have talked to management as if them being followed is something they would address. The company would not address the stalker and that is very clear. It is important that everyone feels safe and comfortable at the gym and they did not create that sort of environment for the victim. I would absolutely not suggest this gym and believe all current members cancel as soon as they possibly can. You are not safe. You will never be safe in this gym. They do not care about their customers…

Jesse Bacon: I was in town three days for a conference and needed a gym to workout in… when we asked about daily passes the staff was super friendly and helpful in allowing me and a colleague to utilize the facility… I was able to complete all of my CrossFit workouts for the three days I was there. The facility was spacious and had everything we needed. Would totally recommend to anyone in the area looking for a gym home or those passing though on business. I’ll visit again whenever I’m in the area.
Response: Hi Jesse! That's amazing, we are so glad you were able to enjoy our Dupont Circle facility and what the club has to offer. We really hope to see you again in the future! Thanks again, HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com

Michael: It's a great gym, I really don't get why the rating isn't higher. Perhaps the former management can be blamed. Juayla could not have been more welcoming. I can recommend this gym 100% Not too busy It's clean Good variety of equipment Big lockers (gotta bring your own lock) A nice, respectful crowed
Response: Michael, WOW! Thank you so much for your 5-star rating of our Dupont Circle location and kind words about team member Juayla. We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. We hope to see you again soon. If you ever need assistance, you can always reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

J Heather: Very friendly front desk staff and cleaning staff. Location is well maintained (cleanliness and equipment). The location can get crowded especially during rush hours (around lunch and at the end of the day). The other WSC nearby shutdown so their members automatically transferred to this location. Bathroom/lockers may be spotty at times but it depends on the time of the day. They offer membership discounts if you sign up in person (just a warning regarding the annual fee- they cannot waive it).
Response: J Heather, We're thrilled that you were satisfied with our Dupont Circle location. We are happy to hear our team members are meeting your expectations. Your feedback is appreciated, and we are here should you ever need help in the future. You can always reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Linnies World: I give this gym -10/10. A facility were the staff don't care about your safety is not a place to be. Not to mention taking people hard earned money when they were protecting themselves. Let not mention the unprofessional person on the other end of the phone. This makes no sense honestly they guy needs to be fired.

Whittney Dents: A club member was being followed and recorded the interaction to protect himself. Instead of the manager being understanding, he abruptly canceled the members membership and would not give them a refund. In a society where you truly don’t know the intentions of people, recording yourself for protection should not be punished. Shame on this establishment and the manager.

Nesi Smith: This gym feel as if it’s ok for a member to be stalked and you terminate them because they’re recording for their safety!!! As a former law enforcement officer I felt the need to record was justifiable and due to the fact that he didn’t report it shouldn’t matter. You have all types of weirdos working out so the need to report is slim to none unless that person actually starts following and stalking you to point where every move you make they make!!!! Refund should have been given as well as an apology.

Micha-Re Newton: This gym disregards the safety of its members and instead punishes them for taking precautions of their own safety. A recent member had just posted an interaction on social media of how he was followed by a man throughout his entire visit. The man would move to every corner that the member did. Even down to preforming intimidating acts by setting his belongings directly next to the member. WSC then decided that they would suspend the members membership for “recording and posting. & should have taken it to management” yet no actions have been taking on the predatory behavior of the man that was recorded. I can’t imagine how they would treat a woman in this same situation if this is how they treated a gentleman.

Carmen King: Unprofessional. Member felt unsafe and recorded the man following him. The stalker told the manager & the manager canceled the victims membership and refused to give a refund. Didn't ask the victim his side or anything. Not good business & you should feel safe in your gym. 0/10

Tiana Stewart: This club does not care about the safety and well-being of their customers. Your membership will be terminated if you vent about the gym on social media with no refund of your monthly payment. This gym is not safe If you are attending alone. If you do go to this gym, please go with another person so that you were not followed around the gym.

Washington Sports Clubs - Columbia Heights: what do users think?


Kuntal Sen, MD, FACMG: My poor review is due to following reasons: My trainer left abruptly without notice. I was charged for cancelling my session with him even though it was their fault. I have disputed the credit card charge. They are infamous for wrongly charging customers and fraudulent activity. They implemented covid vaccine card policy which was nice but didn’t inform customers. I and others was treated very unprofessionally by front desk during this day.
Response: Kuntal, We're sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience at our Columbia Heights location. We hope you will accept our sincerest apologies. We are committed to providing a great fitness experience, and we would like to make things right. Please send us an email to Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com so that we can determine how we can provide you with a solution. We value our customers' opinions and thank you for bringing this to our attention. All the best, Here to Help Team

April: Personal Training - Thomas Harrington After being out of the gym for a while, Thomas was much needed. He is kind, engaging, patient and knowledgeable just to name a few. What I really like about him, he takes the time to explain the whats and whys. It doesn't feel like he's just "doing his job". Thomas goes above and beyond to explain the mechanics in layman's terms. After each session I walk away having learned something. He loves what he does, and he's happy to pass it on. Thomas gets 10s from me.
Response: Hi April - thank you for taking the time to submit this positive review of Thomas! We love hearing that our team is making a different in our member's lives. We have shared this feedback with the club team. We hope you continue to love your sessions and we will see you around the club! Thanks again, HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com

Luke Brown: Thomas Harrington was the trainer I needed! Thomas has revolutionized my workout regimen and level of fitness. Not only am I noticeably stronger and more toned, I also have greater self-confidence in the gym, better kinesthetic awareness, and a bevy of workout routines will demonstrated results. Thomas has been a strong balance of expertise and care for me. He frequently spent additional time showing me an alternative exercise, checking-in about my hesitations, or demonstrating an additional stretch for a lingering ache. I actively looked forward to our time together, and I will apply his instruction for years to come. I had been hesitant to pay for a personal trainer, yet investing in my time with Thomas has been a massive personal victory. I would recommend Thomas to anyone hoping to build more effective workout routines, prevent or recuperate from an injury, or develop their confidence in and around the gym. Whether you are looking to fine tune your workouts or turn more heads, I'd invest in time with Thomas.
Response: Wow Luke! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for our Columbia Heights location including amazing feedback for our trainer, Thomas! We will be sure to pass along the feedback to Thomas and the rest of our team. We hope you continue to enjoy your time with him and we will be seeing you around our club! Thanks again, HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com

Conor O'Reilly: I had a personal training session with Phil and he did a great job! He taught me a lot about free weights and stretching. Now I feel more comfortable to use the more advanced equipment. They also have a pool, sauna, and basketball court. Love this place
Response: Conor, Thank you for taking a moment to leave such a positive review for our Columbia Heights location and sharing your experience with our personal trainer, Phil. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your personal training session with him and feel more comfortable with using the equipment around the facility. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to HeretoHelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Terry Chasteen: I joined on a special rate, maybe it was 2018. Due to my own fault, I never used the gym ... not once. I cannot blame that on anyone else, however I would have thought with a new client in a business like this, someone would have reached out; invited me in for a tour, found out why I was paying monthly but never using the facility. No one ever contacted me for the full year that I was billed. That is not the worst part, however, Even though it was NOT in the contract, they automatically renewed my membership without my approval and not only at my original rate but almost $30/mo above. This went on for a year since I never used that credit card and it was paid monthly automatically by my bank. Only bc of sething else on the card did I notice the fraudulant charges and they were too old for my bank to recover.
Response: Terry, Thank you for reaching out regarding your experience at our Columbia Heights location. We’re always looking to make things right. We do truly appreciate the feedback as we’re always looking for ways to improve our member experience. Thanks for taking the time to leave this review and we hope you will provide us with an opportunity to do better. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you by emailing us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to Help Team

Benyam Ephrem: Scheduled an InBody scan a week ago (as a non-member), came in prepped for the scan (no breakfast) at 10am - front desk said they did not have an appointment asking if I received a confirmation email (I said I got no calls or emails), then made me scan a QR code on a banner to schedule for another day since apparently the person doing the scans would be in at 5pm. Frustrating experience. Will not be coming back to the gym.
Response: Benyam, We are terribly sorry for your experience at our Columbia Heights location. It is because of customers like you that we can continue to learn how to improve. We are most certainly sad to hear that we fell short. We want to contact you and learn more about your recent experience. Please feel free to send us an email with additional details to Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to Help Team

Gregory Alan: Critical: QualityMediocre at best. See attached pictures below. The equipment is not well maintained and does not justify the cost of membership. Also the club hours are terrible on the weekends.
Response: Gregory, thank you very much for your feedback. We take our member's insights to heart, and we apologize for not providing you with the best possible experience in our clubs. As you know, the pandemic has presented a unique set of obstacles for most business but has especially affected the fitness industry. If you are open to discussing further we would love to connect you with one of our Customer Relations Managers at heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to help team

Thaiz Alicia: Do not come to this gym!!! They do not care for your safety!! They will cancel your membership for protecting yourself from weird men that will follow you around ! Stay safe and go to a gym that will help you out and help you enjoy your gym experience instead of canceling your membership!

Mahvash Edrissi: I started going to gym a month ago, first it was difficult to come out after so long time lock down. But after few days I got used to it now i want to go there everyday. Friendy staff, and clean place, and all equipment makes this place great. I do my exercise, take a shower and saunas, afterwards I feel great about myself. Thank you wsc
Response: Mahvash, We're delighted to hear about your experience. We truly appreciate your recommendation of our Columbia Heights location. We will work hard to continue going above and beyond. As always, our team is looking forward to your next visit. We are always here if you have any additional feedback or suggestions. You can reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Bita Kh: The worst customer service I’ve ever seen. Nobody takes responsibility for the actions. They charge me with new fee membership that is more than the original one because of the mistake that made by themselves. I’ve spoke with customer service and sales department several times, everybody already aware of this problem but no action. When I follow up they send me to new person. This is absurd.
Response: Bita, We're sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience at our Columbia Heights location. We hope you will accept our sincerest apologies. We are committed to providing a great fitness experience, and we would like to make things right. Please send us an email to Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com so that we can determine how we can provide you with a solution. We value our customers' opinions and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Washington Sports Clubs - Glover Park: what do users think?


My Comment: Great neighborhood gym. Staff there -- Mahlape, Olga, Luis -- who are there in the mornings are friendly and quick to help if you have questions. You get a neighborhood vibe from the place as compared to the nameless big gyms. Especially during the pandemic you can see the extra effort they put in to keep the place clean, open, and welcoming. They make you feel part of a family. Glad to be a Glover Park member.
Response: Judd, We can't thank you enough for your 5-star rating of our Glover Park location. It means the world to us and lets us know we're on the right track! We are thrilled to hear that our team members are always welcoming, as we strive to deliver the best customer service. We are always happy to help should you ever need assistance in the future. You can reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks for being a part of Washington Sports Clubs. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Jason Yeung: Been a member for several months now. I’ve haven’t had a negative experience with team members. The people that workout here are also very respectful and friendly. In response to a negative review of a team member I wanted to share my experience with her. Towards me, she’s always been friendly and hospitable. She does her best to remember everyone by name and notices when your workout buddy isn’t with you, even to the point of asking if they’re ok. The lack of a 5th star is not because of the staff. I wish there were bumper plates, another squat rack, and high quality barbells. That’s most likely a corporate issue.
Response: Jason, We appreciate the time you took to rate our Glover Park location. Thanks for acknowledging our team members daily efforts. We would like to thank you for your constructive feedback. We are continuously working to make improvements when it comes to delivering the best fitness experience. If you would like to share any additional feedback, we are here to listen with care. You can reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to Help Team

Ricardo Martinez: I must disagree with a previous review. Malape is a value member of the gym, she is courteous, polite and nice in general. If there is a piece of equipment that is behind the desk, she would gladly point it to me so I can grab it (due to COVID). Luis is another great asset to the gym, he always looks to have everything ready and clean for us to workout early in the morning, always say hi with a smile and good attitude. I am appreciative of their work.
Response: Ricardo, We always enjoy hearing what our customers have to say. Thanks for shouting out our awesome team members Malape and Luis. We're glad we could be of service and that you had a great experience at our Glover Park location. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, and we appreciate your kind words. We are always here to listen with care. You can reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com should you ever need assistance in the future. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

John Byrne: This is a great sports club with a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Mahlape has always been an incredible asset -- friendly, professional and knowledgeable -- and Luis keeps everything extremely clean. The club was renovated a few years ago, and there is great equipment and a lot of space. Also, very easy to get to on Wisconsin Avenue.
Response: John, Thank you for being a loyal member of our Glover Park location. Many thanks for thinking of us and leaving a 5-Star review. We would also like to thank you for recognizing our team members Mahlape and Luis. We're grateful for your trust, confidence, and business in choosing Washington Sports Clubs as your fitness provider. We hope to continue to exceed your expectations. You can always share feedback, or should you ever need assistance; you can reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Alexandre B. Sagna: I love ❤️ being part of Washington Sport Club Glover Park. The whole staff is friendly 😊. Brought two of my buddies to train with me and they loved it. Yes it’s tiny that’s true so if you don’t like being close to each other I recommend not to come around pick time 😊.
Response: Dear Alexandre, Thanks so much for taking the time to share such positive feedback! It is truly touching to know you think so highly of us and are sharing this experience with your friends! If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to reach out to our team at HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, HereToHelp Team

Joao Pedro: Very friendly staff and great customer service! I also want to kindly disagree with what was said in the latest review since I believe that the “older black woman”, as she was referred, is actually a valuable member and a very nice person who contributes a lot to the gym with her nice work. I only have great words to say about the whole team that works there. The gym is always super clean. The machines are well maintained, and there’s a good number of ergs, so I don’t have to wait to do my cardio.
Response: Thank you for the kind words, João! We’re so happy your membership experience went so smoothly. We love to provide great service to awesome members like you. If you ever need anything please do not hesitate to reach out to HeretoHelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again! Marc Digital Member Relations Manager

Will Wu: Great budget gym in Glover Park. Been a member for almost a year and never had any problems with them. Would recommend
Response: Hello Will, We're delighted to hear about your experience at Glover Park! It is truly touching to know you think so highly of us! If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to reach out to our team at HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks again, HereToHelp Team

Vinicio Aguirre: Wsc Glover is a gym that I highly recommend to the neighborhood or anyone looking to go have a good workout. It’s had major changes since the original Covid transitions. The people there are welcoming and enthusiastic when it comes to its members. If you are an individual that is somewhat of a germaphobe, there is an employee by name of Shanica who works hard keeping the cleanliness of the gym to its highest standards. She makes sure the antibacterial wipes are always stocked and the workout rooms as well as mats are cleaned daily. Overall I believe you come to the gym you’ll agree with my review.
Response: Hi Vinicio - thank you very much for your review of our Glover Park location! We are so thrilled to hear that you are enjoying our club. We appreciate your continued loyalty and if there is any further feedback that you wish to send us, please contact us at HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, HereToHelp Team

Bernard Holland: I have not been to WSC Glover Park since the pandemic and plan to rejoin when things quiet down. Before that I was there most days for ten years. The elderly black woman Lizzie was referring to is Mahlape who has been there for more than 20 years. Mahlape is the glue that holds that club together. All the people I know that attended the club adored Mahlape. I cannot imagine her being rude undeservedly to anyone. Moreover I have seen a few altercations between staff and members in my time at the club. Invariably it was the members who were at fault.
Response: Bernard, Thank you for taking the time to rate our Glover Park location. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we take pride in delivering exceptional service. We look forward to your return and continuing to support your fitness journey. We are always here if you ever need assistance in the future. You can always reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Gretchen Whitney: Washington Sports Club in GloverPark is very convient for me, clean, cost-effective, etc.. I always appreciate being welcomed by Malape (spelling?). The yoga and exercise instructors are excellent. I don't like wearing a mask now but appreciate the club's attention to the requirement and safety. I recommend it!
Response: Gretchen, Thanks for choosing our Glover Park location and leaving such a great review! Feedback like yours reminds us why we do what we do. We are thrilled to hear that you love our group fitness instructors and that team member Malape is delivering you a great experience. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Ambitious Athletics: what do users think?


Kelly Gamble: My husband and I joined Ambitious Athletics in 2020 during the pandemic and it was the best decision we ever made. Carmen and Kam are more than just owners/coaches they truly care about every single member more than any gym I've ever belonged to in the past. They will do whatever it takes to encourage you to succeed in your personal goals and are such a positive light. They had to continue to adapt to the ever-changing COVID pandemic rules and we always felt extremely safe there. They recently moved locations to a beautiful new gym and we could not be happier for them. We had to end our membership because we moved but I hope they expand to multiple locations one day so we can re-join or we'll just have to move back to DC. I cannot recommend them enough!!

shane shand: Ambitious Athletics has been an amazing place to improve my health, fitness, and knowledge. Carmen and Kam do a great job of giving instruction as well as the reasoning behind the movements. There’s a balance with the class sizes that allows me to get the personal critiques and tips I need to improve. From the day I stepped into AA the staff and members really made me feel like a part of their family and created a great workout experience. Amongst many fitness studios and classes I’ve tried Ambitious Athletics definitely stands out.

Jay Smith: Carmen and Cam are spectacular. I cannot say enough about this gym. Carmen is much more than a coach, a professor teaching with a mix of art and science. He is incredible. The workouts feel very much custom designed and personalized. I’ve been in CrossFit, kettle bell, and barbell classes, but none of those even come close to this. When I joined the gym, I was out of shape. I began to see very nice results in two weeks. I’ve never seen results that fast, nor to that extent. The gym is extremely clean and impeccably maintained. Classes are very small, and it doesn’t take long until the place feels like home. The environment is high energy and very positive. This will be the best part of your day.

Nikki Clements: Ambitious Athletics is truly a diamond in the fitness world rough. I joined 4 years ago looking for a program to continue my strength and conditioning training, but found a program that is absolutely out of this world. The intention behind all of the curated workouts shows Carmen's expertise in the field and the comradery amongst the trainers and members is what truly fuels my desire to be better everyday. I highly recommend you check out Ambitious Athletics! COVID Update: Carmen and Kam have seamlessly pivoted the gym's operations in response to COVID. They provide remote workouts that people can complete on their own or join the Zoom classes in the morning or evening. Their in-person protocol includes mask-wearing, private squat racks and weights to avoid cross-contamination, and sanitizing materials at every single squat rack. Whether I'm doing a workout online or in-person, I feel I am getting the full training experience while feeling safe. You won't find another gym putting in the effort to see their members successful and safe like you do here!

Leah Judson: I only trust these guys to help me get back on my feet from a chronic leg injury. It was nearly a decade of not being able to run and a few weeks with them got me on the pavement again. Couldn’t recommend enough if you’re wanting real, caring attention that’s catered to your needs.

Allison Guarino: Ambitious Athletics is the only workout routine that has kept me motivated and constantly working out every Monday and Wednesday morning before work. It is a boot camp style training that is held indoors and uses body weight, resistance bands and kettle bells. Good music (sometimes rock, sometimes dance, sometimes rap, sometimes all) is played in-between instruction. Training classes are small so you basically get a personal trainer. The other athletes are nice, dedicated and all ages, shapes, and sizes. If you want to be stronger, try this. If you want to lose inches and tone up, try this. The head trainer Carmen is the backbone of this business. He is authentically "dedicated to your health" and inspires you to work harder. He is really the best.

Anne Clements: Carmen is the absolute best!!! I signed up for his boot camp at the recommendation of a friend. I had made several attempts to get back in shape after some health problems, but hadn't had any success. From day one, things were different with Carmen. His enthusiasm about working out hard is contagious, and the support he offers between sessions (nutrition plan, fat-buster challenge, referrals) is a great addition. Carmen has high expectations of his clients, and sometimes he's believed in me more than I've believed in myself. But, 7 months into this thing, I've got to admit it's really working. I'm 20 pounds lighter, way stronger, and feel like (as Carmen always says) the best is yet to come! Thank you Carmen!!

Walt Schwenk: I had the pleasure of sampling Carmen’s Monday morning 7am class at Woodley Park a few weeks back. First thing I noticed was how wide open the facility is. I also saw all the equipment Carmen utilizes in his regiment. There were kettlebells, TRX, resistance bands and rollers spread all over the floor. The variety of equipment yields a wide range of exercises and movements that Carmen effectively implements in his plan. The workout itself was both very organized and effective; it’s a true full-body workout. My heart was pumping, my muscles were blasted, and I was sweating hard. Carmen does a great job pushing everyone to the limit of his/her ability. I consider myself someone who’s in great shape, and I was as tired as people who are more casual about fitness. He caters to everyone, but ultimately he pushes everyone past his or her normal thresholds. What it comes down to is if you have a chance to attend Carmen’s boot camp, and you choose not to, then you must not be serious about your health and fitness. Simple as that.

Kathryn Schuler: I have been working out with Carmen for 10 months and I absolutely love it. His bootcamp sessions feel more like group personal training sessions than what you might imagine a bootcamp to be. Carmen plans out very specific circuits of workouts in 6 week increments to help you become stronger and have better movements. Every day, he has a playlist prepared that has timing incorporated into the audio. He spends a few minutes explaining what you will do at each circuit station, and answering questions about how to perform the movements correctly and safely. Then, you move from station to station based on the timing that is announced via the audio. This is SO AWESOME, because it frees Carmen up completely to watch you and help you improve your movements. He has literally thought of everything. I like it because there are usually 2 or 3 different workout circuits that you do for the entire 6 weeks. This allows you to see your own progress on them over time. When 6 weeks are up, just when your body is getting used to the workout, he switches things up. You never get bored! When I first started, I could do only a few "girl" push-ups, and after about 6 months I could do 10 real ones! I am so proud. The group is definitely a range of skill levels, so anyone can feel comfortable - even beginners. Carmen is great about taking time with you to make sure you are doing the right things for your body. One of my favorite things about him is that he is very concerned with proper form and alignment. Plus, everyone in the group is totally awesome and nice! I sometimes have to miss bootcamp in bad weather because I live far away from it, and I hate it! I've seriously considered moving closer to it because it is such an awesome part of my life. I don't ever want to have to live without Carmen - he feels like your personal trainer and he cares a lot about you. I'm a graduate student, so money is tight for me, but bootcamp with Carmen is by far the best thing that I do with my money. Totally worth it! I couldn't recommend him any higher. There should be a 6th star option for people like Carmen.

Lindsay Damon: Bootcamp with Carmen gets better and better every session. His workouts continue to be challenging and he does a great job editing things when people come in with an injury. We use kettlebells, trx straps, medicine balls, and elastic bands, and our own body weight to move through circuits that get your heart rate up after you do a full warm up that really preps your body. His nutrition program is comprehensive and complete and he's always available to answer questions about what we can do to treat our body well. I love the small size of the class, the music he uses to keep us motivated, and how he never lets us get away with half-a**ing it. 5:45am never felt so good!

Sesquile Ramon: Overpriced. Meh equipment (missing crucial CrossFit equipment, as well as quality Oly lifting material). Programing has changed multiple times over the years but is consistently mediocre, with lackluster management. Recommend going trying any of the other CrossFit or weightlifting gyms in the area.
Response: Thanks for your opinion on our space. I would like to address your comments in general and then specifically to you. First, the "overpriced" comment. We offer a scalable option based on attendance. At our highest, the 5x/week membership, the price is $329. That works out to $16.45 per class. That's more than fair with our class sizes at 8-12 people. This allows us to pay our staff a livable wage without working 50 hours which is so common in the fitness industry. With that price members also get Open Gym access during non-class times. And members get a door code for after hours. Second, "meh equipment"? I simply disagree. 12 Rogue mens' bars, 7 womens' bars, 4 training bars, a hex bar. Rogue benches, plates, rig, sleds, dumbbells, and kettlebells. Concept 2 rowers and ski-ergs. Assault bikes and Air Runners. Climbing ropes, gymnastics rings. Wooden and soft plyo boxes. Mobility and recovery equipment. Oh, we're missing a GHD that 1% of our membership used. The movement can be replicated with other movements. Third, "programming". We have and will continue to search for the best programming that is safe, effective, and fun. Programming changed as head coaches changed. To address the reliance on one individual we spent 6 months interviewing programming companies, from Functional Bodybuilding, NCFIT, CompTrain, CF Affiliate programming, etc. We settled on Level Method as our overall philosophies on training matched. Now members get programming delivered days ahead of time. They can scale each class to their individual skill and strength. Our coaches are better prepared day in and day out. Just this week over 10 members set PRs on lifts. We have lost no one to injury. Safe, effective, fun. Finally, "lackluster" management. Ok, so maybe that's more subjective. Allow me to argue against your opinion. When the pandemic hit, we pivoted the next day to online classes. We lent out all of equipment, some of which never came back. When we could train outside we built 8 lifting platforms and bought tents for each one. Then we replaced the portable tents with a one 60'x 15' tent and placed rubber flooring underneath. And we added plants for ambience. During this time we built an indoor lifting platform, created seating and storage area. We rearranged the gym to easily allow equipment to be taken outside. And when we could return inside we changed to the class schedule to reduce member congregation. Also, we developed a check-in system to we could notify members of covid exposure. During this pandemic we still paid our staff, we worked continuously, and actually grew our membership base. Urban Athletic Club has worked diligently to maintain high-standards in coaching, equipment, and client satisfaction. As for your 1-star rating (previously you had given us a 5-star), I believe it is entirely based on the rate increase we sent you. You were paying a rate 55% below new clients. That is not fair to other members. Furthermore, your discount was due to a partner rate that we did not end when your partner cancelled his membership. We have learned from this mistake and no longer offer discounts. We offer the same fair rates to everyone, which is based on their attendance commitment. We also have a simple 30-day cancelation policy without any long-term contracts. I understand that may have felt hurt and angry after the rate increase. I hope that you find solace in your new gym.

Kathleen Simone: I was going to the Georgetown location for a couple of years or so and then I moved away and couldn't ever make it across town. So happy this location opened up! I love the Urban Athlete classes, they're a great full-body HIIT workout. It's great that they're different every time and the coaches are helpful and encouraging.

Andrew Fitch: Great equipment, really fun atsmosphere every time I've gone there. The trainers are super engaged and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend taking advantage of their 'First Class Free' program (if it is still being offered) to see if it's something you'd be interested in.

Enrique Raba: Best gym in the DMV. The equipment is top notch and instructions are very knowledgeable.Also, the club has the best at atmosphere...

Tas Robin: Not your run of the mill CrossFit gym. Exceptionally clean. Equipped with superb quality Rogue equipment. Group classes and personal training for all levels of athletes

Diana Apalategui: Best strength and conditioning gym in DC! Owner Jay Morgan is an amazing coach and trainer!!

Daira Djuric: This is a next level type of workout. Space is incredible and coaches are amazing.
Response: Thanks for your review! Hope to see you again !

Frederico Bartels: Great facility

Equinox Sports Club Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Daniel Caroe: Almost at the end of my year membership and will not be renewing simply due to the customer service. In my experience, a good amount of the staff are hard to work with and even snobby at times and its takes multiple calls and requests to get anything changed on my account. Here are a few examples of the troubles I have had: 1) I called twice over the summer to freeze my membership for a few months while I was travelling. They said this would not be a problem and that they would do it.......I called a third time about month later to find out that they did not freeze it and were still charging me. When I told them about the first two times I called, they said they had no recollection of this happening. Kinda a waste of money for me in that case. 2) I was having some trouble with my personal training scheduling and called to get in contact with the PT Manager. I called multiple times over the course of a week and each time they told me he was busy. They assured me I would get a call back from him but this call never came. (kinda annoying he could not take the time for maybe a 15min conversation) 3) I had to cancel a PT session due to illness (strep) which they said meant I would not be charged a cancellation fee for my session. They definitely still charged me, and again, it was impossible to get into contact with the PT manager. Overall, it's a great facility but I find the staff to be pretty inadequate and kinda rude (namely a front desk person named Shaniya and one of the club managers named Dwayne). I loved my trainer Evan (highly recommend) but in the end, I feel like I could get what I need at another gym with a nicer staff.
Response: Hi Daniel, we are very sorry to hear about this experience. It's definitely not what we like to hear. Please connect with us at concierge@equinox.com. We'd love to get additional details regarding this matter and investigate, allowing us to work towards making improvements going forward. Please be sure to mention your review so we can address quickly.

David Gershman: Today I signed up and had a great experience. Mike, in membership, not only showed me around- they answered every question with full clarity, gave me far more insight than I expected, and was simply very nice and sweet. I knew I was going to get a membership going in, but it’s nice to get warmth and comfort instantly upon arrival. Felt like I was one of the regular folks
Response: Hi David, thanks for the 5 stars!

June Wade: Scheduled a spa massage for my friend’s birthday at the Ritz Carlton/ Equinox (Foggy Bottom) location. The staff was courteous and the gym was clean. I was disappointed the spa does not offer champagne or snacks for special occasions, instead we were given “swag bags” full of gym advertisements and trinkets. If you’re not a guest at the hotel, arriving early is highly recommended (parking, etc). Must walk outside to enter Equinox since elevator access to spa is for guest only. My massage therapist was (Donna) friendly, courteous but chatty. I was not interested in talking about where I live, hearing comments about my “poor”elbows🙄 or asking why my shoulders were so tight during my 80 minute massage. Unfortunately , the massage was not good (technique). Ambiance was fair in the room, there was no soothing music or waterfall fountains, just dim lights, and a cool quiet room. The warm bed with robes was a nice perk.Not a fan of the massage lotion (dry paste) used, she had to continuously spend time stepping away from the massage to reapply. I’m giving this spa 3 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️since my girlfriend had a positive experience with her masseuse. In addition, they provided a quiet space and champagne glasses for us to enjoy our BYOB champagne post massage. Would not recommend, lacks luxury for the price. $500+ ( 2 people)

Lauren Arquette: As all the other reviews said, horrible customer service. The club itself is fine, but don't try to bring a guest and don't try to cancel the membership because it's impossible and no one responds. I was a member for all of a week and tried to quit because I was told when signing up a guest of mine could come if I gave them that guests info. Gave them my guests info- they never put it in the system and turned them away at the door without even trying to investigate the problem/track down the person who gave my guest the ok. Was also told they hard certain equipment for rent when they didn't. If this was a planet fitness I wouldn't complain, but this is a $200+/month club that markets itself as elite. Nothing is elite about their customer service. Per the customer agreement you get 15 days to cancel and get a refund- tried emailing the manager for my refund, tried calling the concierge and nothing yet. I'd love to know if they actually even answer the emails they get when they respond to these complaints "sorry to hear about your experience! contact us as at..."
Response: Hi Lauren, please connect with us at Concierge@equinox.com. We would love to get additional details that led to this review so we can investigate closely. We would be happy to discuss this matter with you further if you'd like to share additional feedback. Please be sure to mention your review so we can address quickly.

TPMT Associates: Love it here as usual - they take care of the place and most importantly, the people who works out here take care of the place and is clean and tidy and doesn’t trash the place. As usual, it’s the people who come to gyms that are the messy/dirty and this place doesn’t have those ppl - not that I saw anyways!
Response: Thank you for reviewing!

John Heinemann: You get what you pay for. This gym doesn’t make sense for everyone, no one is a better person for going here, and a free gym in an apartment building is going to do 90% of what Equinox does. But the other 10%? I actually look forward to working out more when there’s both a sauna and a steam room, a saltwater pool, luxury bath products, memory foam floors for stretching, and refrigerators full of Eucalyptus infused face towels. I go for the amenities, and then I just decide to work out because I’m already there.
Response: Thanks for the 5 stars, John! Glad to hear you are enjoying our amenities.

Lena Fleischmann: Lots of amenities (pool, basketball court, steam room, sauna, soulcyle bikes...), good customer service, they constantly make improvements by adding products in the changing rooms like razors, hair ties, curling irons etc. What I don't like about it (apart from the price obviously): it's pretty much packed no matter what time you go which is annoying - wish they had a gadget in the app that would tell you how busy it is beforehand. Also, showers aren't always very clean.

Izabella Ritz: The club has a pool with saltwater which is very convenient, covid safety is great, the thing why I didn't join is no natural lights in a building, which is very important for me personally.
Response: Hi Izabella, we appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experience. Thank you for the 5 stars and we will be sure to escalate your feedback to the appropriate teams.

Gelila Sebhatu: I called to inquiry about membership packages and I found the sales rep, Erica, a little rude and she did not directly answer my questions, which was irritating. Based on the reviews here, I’m not surprised I received this type of experience. I guess I’ll be looking elsewhere. I just wanted a nearby pool 🏊‍♀️
Response: Hi Gelila, we are sorry to hear you had this experience. We hope that you will give us another shot to show you we are capable of better service.

Ebony Williams: Do not work at equinox if you have living situation or just a situation period the manger Duane don’t care if you have living situation problems he even told one of the employees that mid shift is childish because we all going through something sorry if you hired people who have living situation or who gave problems and be careful of the Towels and hand towels they wash them in hot water only no solution that why the towels look a little dirty Yess I use to work their and got fired because I was trying to find a place to stay the days I called out because I was homeless the cleaning manger is horrible at his job and HR needs to send a Secret Santana to see how they clean the place

Washington Sports Clubs - North Bethesda: what do users think?


Spencer Moffat: I cannot recommend this gym enough! The employees here are very kind and helpful. The gym equipment could maybe be a bit better (only 1 squat rack and only 1 bench press) but it is great value as the monthly charge as the neighborhood monthly charge is only $30 per month. It is also a very clean gym and it is not crowded during the mornings and most of the afternoon (except it does get very busy during the evenings on weekdays).
Response: Spencer, thank you for the great review!! We are so happy that you love North Bethesda WSC - our team works hard to provide an excellent fitness experience. If there is ever anything we can do to assist, please do not hesitate to reach us at heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to help team

Abraham zhao: I had a really good experience with my orientation meeting and found that the exercise areas are well-planned — given the space constraints of an in-shopping-center gym. The orientation meeting was really incredible because I wasn’t just sat around for a while for a marketing meeting. Instead, James (the trainer) read my intake form, helped me understand what could be accomplished within the gym and what nutrition might need to address, and then he immediately showing me exercises and talking about a realistic pace to achieve my goals (both in terms of individual workout pacing and scheduling longevity). He was very knowledgeable and the rest of the staff has been very cordial. I have not attended any of the classes and the sauna is currently closed due to the mask mandate, but the facility is kept very clean.
Response: Thank you for the kind words, Abraham! We’re so happy your membership experience is going so smoothly. We love to provide excellent service to awesome members like you. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to HeretoHelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again! Here to Help Team

Sarah: My experience at this gym started off okay. I had a spin class that I loved and a great trainer. The personal training got too expensive for me so I opted to just do classes/workouts on my own. I signed up for a step class thinking it would be fun. It was a longer class - I think 75 minutes. I know it had a break halfway through. I was struggling to keep up but still trying. The instructor zeroed in on me, came right up to me and started screaming in my face. She was yelling "I don't know why you aren't getting this!" I ignored her and kept trying, but was getting even more flustered. I'd never been to the class before, or seen this woman in my time working out there. When we finally went to break, I made like I was going to get more water and quietly left. It was beyond humiliating. Perhaps some people are motivated by someone yelling at them, but that's not me. I regret not filing a complaint at the time, but I was so embarrassed I just wanted to get out of there. Trying to cancel my membership was a whole other ordeal. Like many of the other commenters, it took forever. I finally got it canceled, but to say it was complicated would be an understatement.
Response: Sarah, firstly, thank you very much for your review - we take all of our members' feedback to heart. We apologize for your experience, at WSC our goal is to make an environment for fitness where everyone is comfortable. As for the cancellation of our membership, again we apologize for any missteps. We have a best-in-class cancel any time policy in the hopes of making cancellation easy. If you are open to discuss your experience further, we would love to learn what went wrong and how we can avoid it in the further. If so, please reach us at heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to help team

Timothy Rutherford: The overall space is fine. It feels busy quickly in the free weights area if more than 10 are working out there. The cardio space has plenty of machines across the various types so it doesn’t feel as cramped. The space designated for core and miscellaneous can feel small at times given the cornucopia of stuff you can do there (good and bad of course). The staff are consistently nice and polite. There are roaming sanitary technicians throughout the entire day, so you can see the facility is being cleaned. The class selection is okay. They are offering more classes more often now. The class spaces need better ventilation, but that’s not a deal breaker. Much of the equipment is dated (rust spots, stained) with broken and/or missing components (pins or clips). The dumbbell selection is great. There are plenty of weight plates and various bars. Overall, the gym is adequate in relation to the cost.
Response: Timothy, Thank you for the feedback, and I apologize for not providing the best possible experience in our club. We take all of our member's feedback to heart. We're in the process of making some significant changes. I'd like to learn how we could avoid these mistakes in the future and for the chance to make this up to you. I am having a bit of trouble finding your account; if you’re open to discussing further, please reach out to me at HeretoHelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to Help Team

LLewis: SCAM ALERT!! I joined another location, when they closed that location, my account was automatically transferred to Bethesda without my authorization and any notification. I've tried to cancel my account but since I don't know my member number (I lost my gym card) they won't cancel it. When I call the front desk they refer me to the 800 number and say they can't help me. I canceled payment through my credit card, but they keep charging me. I just got a two month charge. This is insane!
Response: Livy, Thank you for the feedback, and I apologize for the negative experience you had in our club. We take all of our member's feedback to heart. We're in the process of making some significant changes. I want to learn how we could avoid these mistakes in the future and for the chance to make this up to you. I am having a bit of trouble finding your account; if you’re open to discussing further, please reach out to me at HeretoHelp@tsiclubs.com. All the best, Here to Help Team

Ethan: This i think this is possibly the worst gym in the world. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO NOT GO HERE. Please just go to another gym. The people that work here are not particularly bad and are just trying to make a living. But i have had one or two bad experiences with people working at the desk. the gym is gloomy and cold and not even worth a visit. Finally the main caveat of this gym is the sheer lack of equipment frankly it is barely a gym there is one bench and one squat rack which is frankly unacceptable for any “gym” as well as not enough equipment in general. This gym would be good if it was only one person.

Ashenafi Maru: Somebody just broke two locker keys and took the bags with the valuables. The gym has no a single security camera even in the lobby. Normally members need to scan their code at the lobby but the gym couldn’t help us identify how the thief entered without scanning. The locker rooms aren’t safe at all. To my surprise the gym doesn’t report to the Police but advise the member to report by himself.
Response: Ashenafi, Thank you for the feedback, and I apologize for the negative experience you had in our club. We take all of our member's feedback to heart.

Nicholas Frazzette: The gym facilities are fine, the equipment is modern and in good shape, and there's rarely a wait for any machines or weights. The athletic training staff are knowledge and friendly. However, the managerial staff are very dishonest and deceitful. On several occasions, I was quoted different rates for membership than I actually ended up being charged. Additionally, when I elected to cancel my membership, they quoted a cancellation fee for me without any sort of prior warning online on in-person during sign up. If you want to join this gym, be very careful and thorough about asking about fees and get any special rates from the staff written down.
Response: Hey Nicholas We apologize if you feel you weren't warned about our Cancellation polices. Our Policies are in the contract you signed when you first joined. If you misplaced your contract, feel free to go to our website and create an account online. You'll be able to download the contract from there. Best, Gabe HereToHelp@tsiclubs.com

Lynn Daboul: This is a very predatory gym. In all my life of frequenting gyms in different cities, I've never been so relentlessly harassed to join. I have let them know verbally in person, by email, and by phone that I am NOT interested in joining because I have relocated to a different city. This hasnt stopped them from calling me about once or twice a month for the past TWO YEARS. Even after I have blocked their number, they still leave voicemails! I am at my wit's end to have them understand that I do not want to join. All this because I used a one time free gym pass to check it out (and I didn't like it because it was small, and had lots of men leering at me).

Chevy Chase Athletic Club: what do users think?


Kevin Sunita: I’ve recently joined CCAC since I heard about them from a fellow member. The classes looked like something I would be very interested in, but more so the stretch class. I’ve had back issues for quite a while now but after attending that class for a couple weeks, my back has never felt better. The instructor Vikky makes the class very fun and enjoyable along with the people that take it. Would highly recommend this gym!

Lallie Marita: The staff and trainers at CCAC have been some of the best. A lot of gyms feel very “money-grabber” so-to-speak and I have never once felt this way here, even though many will simply go out of their way to offer a correction or two. This gym also appears to attract everyone, but definitely leans toward a younger to middle-age crowd, all are welcome nonetheless!

Lisa Wu: I live closeby in a neighboring apartment complex and recently joined CCAC a couple months ago after touring the facility and doing a free trial. I highly recommend attending their Strong class with Hayat every Tuesday and Thursday; this has been a game changer for me and my fitness goals. It has helped me tighten up and tone my body all over - especially my core and inner thighs. This instructor is one of the best I have ever taken from and is extremely motivating and personable!

Jonathan Steele: This gym is of even greater value than what you pay for. If you want to be part of a community and actually get to know people within the facility you're signing up for, join this gym. It's a real community that motivates and supports each other. The management is great and I can attest to the fact most negative reviews occurred because people did not abide by guidelines in the contract or clear direction from management. With the current staff and employees, I can confidently say CCAC is well worth every penny. Highly recommend this club and asking to try using one of their personal trainers... I've never been so sore but made so much progress.

Tim Smythe: Just recently joined with some of my friends from AU and a couple guys interning in the area and it's been great. Awesome variety of gym equipment and the staff members are really friendly, chill, and genuine. They'll validate parking for $1 up to 2.5 hours and they have a sauna and steam room which is cool. Middle-age to younger vibe and the owner Steve White is really nice about taking the time to correct form or make things harder... you will be sore though. Check it out.

amelia brooks: I joined about a month ago with some friends and we have loved this place! Super convenient since we live in a house not too far away during the year, and now summer with internships. They just recently started offering a deal for college students in the area, so I highly recommend checking it out - and if you love a quieter time to workout with less people, I recommend the mornings here! Super spacious and the staff is so friendly and personable. Everyone pretty much knows each member by name and they're super encouraging! We've felt really comfortable in this place when it comes to COVID and everyone seems to be doing their part.

JJLindsanity: This club is amazing! It definitely meets all of my exercise needs, so much space! I love all the equipment choices that they have, every time I visit I can't help but to try something new- love at first try! I also love how the staff knows everybody who comes in by name- so nice! This is definitely the place to be (exercise)!

Pete Kaminskas: I recently 'discovered' CCAC when looking for a place to practice squash with my daughter. I was pleasantly surprised to learn about the breadth of equipment and programs beyond the 3 squash courts (which are very nice). Moreover, they recently upgraded their equipment and improved spacing to promote better distancing. CCAC is a hidden gem and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a clean, well-run gym with friendly staff.

Medhavi Bhatia: I would be very careful with this facility. The owners are very bad at managing billing. Look at my credit card statement below. I left the club in Feb and after a couple of disputes which I presumed settled this, I noticed very late that the owner kept charging me. By the time I found out, the credit card company would not refund me between March and May. I informed the club in September and after that not only they did not refund me between March and May, they also kept charging me in Oct, Nov and Dec. The owner was extremely rude and I found that they have done this with other members too. They sign members up and if the member does not meet their revenue generation criteria within a year, they kick the member out and make up the loss via such billing as much as possible. I am $500 down! Please save yourself!

Rebecca Post: Critical: Communication, ProfessionalismSimilar to a previous poster, we canceled our membership and continue to be charged months after. Despite writing several times to Claire, no response. - WOW, that response below is rich given we did all the paperwork on November 23rd and are still being charged.
Response: Hello Ms. Post, We hope you are staying healthy, but despite repeating the cancellation process *several* times over the course of *several* months, you chose to make an exception for yourself. You could have come into the business to cancel or send a certified letter and I easily and happily would have taken care of this for you - no questions asked and no problems moving forward. When you sign a contract, you are expected to abide by the rules laid out in it. We understand there is a pandemic, which is why I have made exceptions, such as meeting people outside of the building or having them send a certified letter. We have hundreds upon hundreds of members, so sticking to the cancellation policy is critical in staying organized and taking care of matters like these adequately and properly. We wish you well and wish we could have taken care of this a long time ago. Very Best, CCAC

Capitol Hill Sport&Health: what do users think?


Allison Nielsen: It's a good gym! Lots of equipment and levels so it's kind of spread out and the locker rooms are nice. I will say that the equipment doesn't seem that new and some machines could use some upgrades/repairs (things like the fans don't work on them) but overall I've always enjoyed all the times I've been here!
Response: Thanks Capitol Hill Sport&Health! We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. Our company values put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are committed to our customers.

Edward Wendel: Great gym and great trainers. I have been using gym since its opening. I am now 81 (yes, I know, old). Have been training for several years with Razonte Dunn. He may be exceptional at training high performing athletes, but he also has a special gift for taking everyone seriously and taking them to the highest level they can achieve. He not only knows the mechanics of training, he communicates a desire to make you succeed that is contagious. This experience has been life-changing.
Response: Hi Edward, Thank you for the 5-stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Asher Allman: Great gym at an affordable rate. Helpful and responsive staff, both in person trainers and with online/email inquiries. All the equipment you would need, and a really cool atmosphere/space. Big fan!
Response: Hi Asher, Thank you for the 5-stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Paxton Helms: Love this place and have been going for years. Lots of room, trainers are great (if you want to use them), changing areas are large and clean, and price is reasonable. I don't do classes but do love that they have a counterweighted dip and pull up machine. They also have parking! Great neighborhood resource.
Response: Thank you very much for such a great review! We work very hard to make sure that we are offering the best experience. So happy to hear that our commitment was clear with you!

Rachael Hunt: I want to give 5 stars to Raz, one of the trainers. I’ve been working out with him in his group classes and it’s been a great experience. He is super enthusiastic and always plans engaging and effective workouts. He is a great motivator. If you are ready to push yourself, he’s the trainer for you.
Response: Hi Rachael, We are happy to hear you had a positive experience at Capitol Hill Sport&Health! We value your input and encourage you to let us know more details about your experience with us.

Flynn Chapman: Love Sport and Health. The gym staff are always friendly and the gym equipment is in good shape. I've trained with Raz for a while now and he's been an excellent trainer getting me in great shape.
Response: Hi Flynn, Thank you for the 5-stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sam C: I do not recommend this gym, they have terribly dishonest billing practices. It borders on a scam. I requested cancellation of my account during COVID, and was told on the phone that "as a courtesy" they would instead freeze my account until I was ready to start coming back. 3 months later, they started billing me again. Shame on me, I only noticed this 4-5 months later. When I contacted them, they said "you are not eligible for a refund without proof of a previous written request to extend the freeze on your account." Despite the fact I was never told I would need to request an extension. I was never told I needed an extension, I was told to contact them when I wanted to come back. Reading through other reviews, it appears this is a common problem.

Lindsey Taylor: This review is specific to Razonte and his semi-private Explosive Performance (EP) Class. I have been taking Raz's EP class once a week for about 4 months and can see a real difference in my strength, how I talk to my body and my confidence in using free weights and the weight room. In total, I have lost about 20 pounds, and Raz's class and his wealth of knowledge absolutely was the catalyst. I have been a life-long fitness class attendee, and when Covid hit, I felt far more lost than I expect as I tried to come up with a consistent workout plan. As gyms in the area open back up I knew I needed to learn the basics of a weight room from a professional. Enter Raz. I couldn't afford personal training, but I could afford EP. I met with Raz and we talk about my goals, and after reviewing the body scan metrics, talked about realistic expectations and set a plan. Sure, the body scan said I needed to lose about 40lbs, but Raz said to me, "Realistically, where can you make small changes in your life that you can maintain to start to move towards whatever goal you have first? That is where we start". I still felt the fun, competitive aspect of group fitness, but I learned the correct form and how much weight I could really throw around, and saw a bunch of non-scale victories that I am very proud of. I think Raz's personality has a lot to do with my success. Each person in the class gets told what weight they should grab for each new movement and each person is getting personally coached or cheered on. You don't feel that lapse of attention, no matter how many people are in the class. There are times when he will push you because he knows you can do more, but never in a way where you feel like you are being yelled at or being called out. He listens to you, offers alternative movements before you have to remind him of your injuries, and all the while picking up on how you like to be motivated. From there he leans in to create a safe space for you to work hard (and it is hard) and push yourself to hit your goals.
Response: Hi Lindsey, Thank you for the 5-stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Andrew Kugle: I've been a member of Capitol Hill Sport & Health for over a year now along with the semi-private Explosive Performance (EP) Class. My trainer Razonte has been phenomenal in getting me back in shape and building more muscle than I've ever had before. At first, I struggled to finish the hour training sessions that I did once a week. But he encouraged me to keep at it and suggested several workouts that I could do on my own on the days I didn't have a EP class. Now, I am able to work throughout an entire session and have increased my classes from one a week to two. If you put in the work and time with Raz, you will notice a difference in your energy level, your strength and overall health. Every few months, we do a check-in to see how much progress we made and I personally have seen my body-fat percentage decrease and my muscle-mass increase over time. While Raz will push you to work hard, he is cognizant of peoples' limits and abilities, prioritizing one's health. He's also a funny and great guy, who gives out constant encouragement and will hold you accountable. In my opinion, the price for the semi-private classes is worth it. You get to workout with a small group of people and you will definitely notice results if you put the time and work in. The gym itself is clean and has all the equipment you will need. The staff is friendly and encouraging to everyone who comes. Highly recommend being a member and taking Raz's sessions. - Andrew K.
Response: Hi Andrew, Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review! We are so happy that you are enjoying your experience with us! It has been a pleasure serving you and we look forward to more great experiences at Sport and Health.

Devon Murphy: Love this gym! Best gym in the area by far. My only recommendation would be to add mirrors in front of ALL the squat racks. It is beyond me why half would have mirrors and half do not.
Response: Hi Devon, On behalf of myself and the team, we are so happy that you are enjoying your experience with us! It has been a pleasure serving you and we look forward to more great experiences at Capitol Hill Sport&Health.

Athletic Republic Capitol Region: what do users think?


Donnie B2: This is a great facility for the price...love working out here. BUT, and I cannot stress this strongly enough, the ladies restroom/shower area is HORRIBLY unkept and unsanitary. Always out out soap, half the stalls are not in working order and paper/trash littering the floors. I have never seen the this area clean whether working out there first thing in the morning or later in the evening. You really need to get a handle on cleaning the restroom/shower area.

Elite Athletics and Personal Training: Very very cool that they turned the old Capital Sports Complex into Athletic Republic. I trained there as a kid in Bowie and now they have a full sized facility?! Definitely gotta visit when I’m back in town.

Ryan Horning: Great place for basketball tournaments.

jay R.: This is a huge sports building. They have several indoor basketball courts, workout weight training, indoor turf field and more. I came here for an Under Armour basketball tournament with my son.The staff were very friendly and organized. They have a food cafeteria which served breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was outstanding and they have a large menu, bigger than most basketball indoor places where tournaments are held! They have a variety of drink machines and food snack machines. They also have a large sitting area for a big groups of people. The parking is a huge parking lot with plenty of space. I do think they should have more indoor seating though. This is a really great place to host basketball tournaments.

Christina Martin: The people who run this place are so rude, ghetto and unprofessional!! Always smart out the mouth even when you're nice to them. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen!!

Toni Gonzales: Went there for a youth basketball ball. No problems.

FOR THE RECORD FOR THE RECORD: When I tell you?? The WORRRSST!! The Worst!! GHETTO AT ITS FINEST!!! I would NOT I SAY WOULD NOT HOST NOTHING HERE. UNPROFESSIONAL
Response: Greetings, we’re very sorry you had a disappointing experience at our facility. Do you mind if our General Manager contacts you to learn more about your experience? We strive to create a positive atmosphere for everyone who enters our doors, and, when we fall short, we desire to make amends. If you are amenable, please provide a contact email or phone number, and our General Manager will contact you.

C Wash: Wow. Where to begin...this place is a nightmare. Unprofessional staff, customer service barely none existent. While I was there for an event, I hope to never have to return. Even the restroom, just gross. They sent out a text informing spectors of policy change late, not taking into consideration some people travel a great distance. NO THANK YOU!!

Banita Porter: The investment that the owner has made in this venue shows well. Thank you for improving the appearance of your business. Excellent location for tournaments.

Lucia Lanford: The gym itself is expansive. I believe it to be a bit overpriced for tournament goers. Also, the no-drink policy is ludicrous. If the organization wants attendees to pay for drinks, OK. But players should be able to bring their own nourishment. I fully understand generating profit, but that's pushing it.

Northwest Sport&Health: what do users think?


Guido Zucconi: Equipment is plentiful and in decent shape. But the place is dirty. Same layers of untouched dust, same balls of hair in the corners and on the equipment day in and day out. Showers are below average in cleanliness as well. Members and staff alike don’t bother wiping equipment after use or re-racking weights. There are weights all over the place. Needs a culture change which starts with staff and trickles down to the members.
Response: Hello Guido, We’re sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience and hope you will accept our sincerest apologies. Being known for our great customer service it came as a surprise, and we would like to make things right. Please give us a call to determine how we can provide you with a solution that makes you smile. We value our customers opinions and would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Aaron Kahn-Bork: I've been trying to cancel my membership in writing for a year and a half and I'm still getting charged $42 every month. It's now added up to over $700. I've finally started disputing the recent charges, and plan to pursue further action over those that are to old to dispute from within my credit card app.
Response: Hello [NAME] If you’re open to discussing your experience further, please call us at (202) 244-6090. We’d greatly appreciate the opportunity to make things right and work toward earning back your business.

alessiozampetti: ...if i ask you: "Do you have sauna here at Health Center"? What do you think am i ask for? Is it pretty comprensible what am i asking for? Well, i did this question to the receptionist and she had no idea what i was asking for, ok i tryed to explain in a few words what a sauna is...nothing she stil was staring at me like i had asked how to build a rocket to reach the moon!!! She was able to says..try to ask to general manager! Please, she is a young girls and she can't ignore what a sauna is and she can't ignore what amenity thy can offer to the client!! It is a huge lack of professionality. That was my exerience...i quit with the second question about the swimming pool, i will find a better place.

Eli Geb: I would not recommend signing a contract with them at all! Rude management and 0 assets to the company with the exception of the young director Everett, who actually seems to do the work. The other manager is just a joke.
Response: Hello Eli, I’m sorry to hear about your disappointment with us, and I would like to personally assist you with making things right. Let’s get on a call and address this ASAP, we value your business. Please contact us when convenient.

Nicolas Minges: While I have no complaints about the facilities or staff, please be warned that management employs very predatory billing tactics and will stop at nothing to take your money away from you (make sure to request copies of everything you sign on the spot, they'll say that they'll send you a copy later but never actually do, and definitely read everything carefully before signing as they'll try to rush you through the process and pressure you into making a bad decision, so definitely take your time!). They are not transparent at all with their contracts nor with what you've already paid for and appear to make things purposely confusing for the client as they're solely focused on financial gain with a total disregard for customer satisfaction, service, or basic human decency (capitalism at its finest). If you have the option, my advice would be to go elsewhere, especially since you're paying for it! You want to be leaving the gym feeling good about yourself and not like you've been ripped off and scammed, which unfortunately is the case at this establishment.

Gregory Cork: FITNESS AND FELLOWSHIP IN UPPER NORTHWEST DC If you work out, every once in a while you find that memorable gym – the place where not only your fitness soared, but so did your spirits when you walked in the door. Northwest Sport&Health (NWSH) is that kind of gym. It’s a given that any quality gym will have the equipment and amenities you need to get and stay in shape. NWSH certainly has all that: two floors, with cardio equipment, a bike spin room, and studios for all kinds of classes up top (and a full and varied weekly fitness schedule); and two thoroughly-equipped weight rooms downstairs – all the machines you’ll need plus plenty of free weights, including two Smith racks. But the essential, even ineffable factor always is the fitness staff. And on this count, NWSH is terrific. Led by General Manager Moses Robinson and Fitness Director Alex Switzky, these folks are professional, knowledgeable, attentive, supportive, engaging, courteous – and not only fun, but funny. (Make sure to ask Moses about The Smolder.) Most important to me personally was that NWSH served as a haven for me through most of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working out at NWSH (yes, with a mask), and hanging with the team and the people I got to know at the gym, came to be the anchor of my day. It was what I most looked forward to, each day, in a bizarre time – a time that otherwise would have lacked air and connection, and that would have meant isolation for this active person. I always will remember and be grateful to NWSH for that critical time and for their collective generosity of spirit.
Response: Hi Gregory, Thank you for the 5-stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Serena Nangia: I love everybody at S&H in Tenleytown! The staff is amazing and always so welcoming - I feel like I'm coming home every time I work out! If you're looking for a personal trainer, Brian is awesome - encouraging and kind, but he still pushes you out of your comfort zone! I've been a member for 1.5 years since I graduated from American University, and I'm planning on staying a member in the future. Highly recommend for anyone local looking for a safe and comfortable place to workout :)
Response: Thank you for the fantastic 5 STAR review Serena! We love that you're enjoying Brian and the Tenleytown Team so much! Thank you for choosing Sport & Health! We are so happy to be your home!

Tala K: Northwest Sport and Health is the perfect gym. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The facility is always clean and has everything you need. Great instructors and all types of fitness classes and training available. The kids’ club is our favorite. The caregivers are experienced and caring, you can enjoy your workout without a worry. Love this place and highly recommend. Thank you!
Response: Thanks Tala!

Zenobia Hampton: I got a bribery call with the new manager offering a free pass to change my review! It stands! horrible concept and overpriced company! Planet fitness is bigger, better, and cheaper! In my experience with this place it's extremely easy to sign up but seemingly impossible to cancel. It's expensive and if you want to become a member of the locations that have pools the already expensive fee is even higher! This place taught me one thing! A free workout trainer app is majorly worth the download! Gyms are becoming a major rip off!
Response: Hi Zenobia, thank you for your review. We strive to keep the process for making account changes simple and quick for our members. All you have to do is email our Member Services team at memberservices@usfitnessgroup.com, and they respond within 24-48 standard business hours. If you have any further questions or concerns, our manager, Alex, would be happy to help. He can be reached directly at nwmgr@sportandhealth.com. Thank you.

Donna Rosen: I have been a member of Northwest Sport and Health for 10+ years. I like this gym for exercise because it is laid back, but has excellent equipment and a diverse membership. I have worked with several Personal Trainers at this gym. All were good, but John Vallimarescu is one of the best Personal Trainers I have ever had. He is very careful to address the unique needs of each client. He pushes you but does not exert excessive pressure -- perfect balance. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding Personal Trainer at NW S&H.
Response: Thanks so much Donna! I will pass along your compliments to the team! Thanks for being a loyal member with us and let us know if we can anything to help you. See you soon!

Belin Sport & Fitness: what do users think?


Manuel Morillo: I signed up for the six week challenge program with Corey in June with a goal of losing 25lbs. Now after 6 weeks of training and meal prepping, I am that much closer to my goal. I couldn’t make 25lbs due to having less time for outside training, but nonetheless I am extremely happy and pleased with the progress I made and, albeit slowly, continue to make. The program was reasonably priced, even on a student budget, and Corey made the entire process of getting situated easy. Workouts were very intensive and also very well coordinated. If adjustments needed to be made Corey would help every step of the way and do his best to adjust so you can focus on reaching your goal. The added benefit of having an accountability group also helps tremendously when things might seem to get tough. Highly recommend giving Corey a call or a visit, he does great work!
Response: It’s great to hear that you were happy with everything Manuel. Thank you so much for the awesome review!

Hanna Haile: Corey is the best trainer I ever had. This program was amazing for me, I have never felt more accomplished after a work out than when I worked out with Corey. The program is exactly what it says it was and I was able to lose what I wanted to lose and create healthy habits for myself. I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends.
Response: Thank you so much. Glad you’re happy with the results!

Robbie Allen: Corey Belin is the definition of a ninja warrior on and off the field. He genuinely cares about his clients, is extremely professional, and supportive. Moreover, he is a coach, motivator, and pushes you to your full potential. You will definitely see results when you train with Corey. He offers a lot of amazing services for all fitness levels. My personal favorite is his iSpinn class. Forget the bike and get ready to rock out with Corey. He takes you through a high impact workout that’s sure to burn those calories. Trust me when I say, Corey cuts calories (pounds)! Highly recommend!!
Response: Thanks for the recommendations Robbie! It really helps!

Les Frasier: Corey hands down is such an amazing trainer! He pushes you to limits you don’t believe you can achieve. I have tried many trainers but Corey takes it to another level. That spin class is everything!! I can’t get enough and need to sign up for the variety of classes he offers . I have to say I look forward to working out and despite the fact it’s online now, I still feel like I get personalized attention to keep me motivated! Please join take his class you won’t regret it!
Response: We appreciate it Les!

Bethlehem Girma: My experience with Corey's bootcamp has been a positive and rewarding one. If you want results, he offers the necessary structure and guidance to help you achieve them. I first met Coach Corey about 3 months ago after my doctor told me I was overweight and needed to lose weight. Corey does special classes every month and the first classes I attended happened to be yoga. I remember telling him that I hated yoga and would skip it and come back to his night class. Of course, Corey convinced me to stay and give it a try. I did just that and ended up really enjoying the class. In the time that I’ve worked out with him, Corey has pushed me to the next level and never let me quit. I look forward to each workout because I know that I will receive quality coaching that allows me to burn a significant amount of calories by the end of the session. Corey is passionate about helping clients and is committed to empowering them to achieve their goals. I highly recommend Corey to anyone looking to make a lifestyle change and become a better version of themselves.

Jennifer Cardno: Corey at Belin sport & fitness definitely knows what he is doing. The 6week challenge is an awesome program that actually delivers results! I absolutely love the workouts. They are always different and I feel so much stronger. The best part about this program though is the tailored meal plan which isn’t like anything I’ve done before. It’s not a diet at all but more a lifestyle change. I understand now the effects that certain food have on my body and am more conscious of the food choices I make. After doing the 6week challenge I feel like my best self and can’t wait to keep going!! If you are looking for a more healthy lifestyle and are willing to put in the work and have a great time doing it then yes this is the program for you!
Response: Thank you so much for the feedback!

patricia eisner: Corey has been my trainer for over 15 years . And every single class is new and different and challenging. I took spin class without bikes this morning and was reminded how hard I need to work when I take one or corey’sClasses. He is motivating, fun and won’t let you down !!!
Response: Thanks for reviewing Patricia!

A Le: This is by far the best boot camp I have tried in the DC area. I have been going to the boot camp classes for almost a year. I have really noticed the change and improvement in my body. I'm a lot stronger and more toned. Corey Belin who is the personal trainer is a great motivator. Even though it is in a group setting, he makes you feel as if you are getting personal training one on one. Corey is original and always come up with challenging and fun routines so that the classes are never boring. As a bonus, he also works out with you on weekends in preparation for races. Come and try one of his classes and you will be hooked!

Anji Corley: The. Best. Trainer. Ever! Corey and his energy and outgoing personality is one of the best I have ever experienced. I’ve known him for over 20 years and his classes never cease to be boring or make my body feel sore… And wonderful! He is creative, innovative and really wants the best for you you just give him a little time and he will transform your body. His East-good SPIN CLASS WITH NO BIKES it’s been one of my go to for the last 10 years. It is so inventive… It’ll blow your mind oh and 30 minutes you are sweating and you feel good and you can go on about your day.
Response: So happy to be able to help! Thanks for the review Anji!

Naderge Pierre: 6 week Challenge with trainer Corey Belin, was the kick in the butt that I needed to start off my Weight loss journey with a bang. Corey's training technique was inspiring and motivating. He provided support even out side the workout sessions. I was able to learn how to change my eating habits and maximize my workout time to get much more satisfactory results of significant Weight loss and body fat loss. Although my 6 weeks are up, I will continue to work with him as my trainer to even go further with my Weight loss and journey of a healthier mind and body.

FIT360 DC: what do users think?


Lauren: Love this gym. The COVID protocols are excellent (temp checks, contact tracing, personal sanitizing equipment, hefty cleaning each day, and top notch air filters), and you can't beat the instructors. I love the variety of indoor and outdoor classes, and they are great at tailoring everything to your fitness level. Personal training is excellent as well. I joined in March 2021 and I look forward to being a member as long as I live in the neighborhood.

Jack Clauff: I joined in September. Fit360 DC has a variety of classes indoors and outdoors. I've generally done the big box gyms but the classes here have greatly helped with my flexibility and balance. Not to mention the gym itself is great and has plenty of weights to get your workout in! The instructors are always keeping in mind safe distancing and there is ample cleaning products to use in the gym to wipe down. Highly recommend for someone looking to get in shape during and post Covid!

Gaby Madrid: FIT360DC is the BEST gym in DC!! 👏🏽👏🏽 They go above and beyond to make sure that everyone is staying safe and healthy during the pandemic. They also have a variety of workout options to fit your comfort level. I absolutely loved their in-person classes!! I recently moved and have joined their virtual classes. The virtual classes are just as challenging and engaging as the in-person classes. Brian, Edgar, and Amina hold it down for folks on the virtual side, and have kept me from turning into a couch potato 🙃💕

Jennifer Katchmark: Debbee and the Fit360 team have been exactly what I have needed to help me emerge from my quarantine coma. In the 5 weeks I have been working with Debbee my posture and form have improved, I have gotten past that "always sore" part of getting back in the gym with targeted stretching, and I feel so much stronger already. Before I came back to the gym I had begun to notice that I was feeling sore and stiff all the time just from being too sedentary, and when I occasionally feel it now from a great workout is a wonderful change. I feel stronger, I get winded much less often and those quarantine pounds are already starting to come off, in a healthy, sustainable way from Debbee's diet coaching. My endurance has improved to the point where I can easily do 100 continuous kettlebell swings, and we are already safely adding weight to my reps. I am very happy with my results already, and I'm excited to see my continuous improvement from my ongoing training from Debbee after the Quarantine Comeback program.

Lewis Yelin: FIT360DC is doing it right. Safety first. Small classes for proper social distancing. Disinfecting the equipment after each use. They even upgraded the ventilation system for added protection. They've just reopened, and I had my first gym workout in months. It was great to be back in an environment that felt clean and safe. As usual, the trainers are excellent -- encouraging and attentive. This is a neighborhood gym that welcomes everyone. Whether you're just starting out or have been a gym rat for years, this is a place you'll feel comfortable. Very much worth checking out.

Ariyana Monee: Great gym. Just wish there was more (and safer) parking , especially in evenings.

Lizi Barba: After spending far too long at WSC, I finally got the nerve to quit, and I ended up at FIT360 years after regularly walking by and peeking in. I was hesitant at first about joining a small gym because I was accustomed to the cold, impersonal experience of larger gyms. But Fit360 completely changed my mind. I ADORE this gym. The staff is incredible, knowledgable, supportive, and welcoming. The classes are challenging and never boring. The equipment is top notch and plentiful—you'll never lack what you need or want. When COVID hit, Brian and his team pivoted to virtual classes and then leaned heavily on outdoor classes at Meridian Hill Park. They now offer a number of options for every pandemic comfort level, and I have no doubt they will come back stronger than ever when everyone is finally able to exercise again inside together. You will never regret going to and joining this gym. It is the best gym I've ever been to.

Chelie Setzer: FIT360 is an amazing neighborhood gym! The owner and fitness instructors really care about their clients, and they've been going above and beyond to ensure we can all still work out safely during this pandemic, from improved cleaning measures to outdoor and virtual class offerings. The workouts are always dynamic and I love being part of the FIT360 community.

Rizwaan Akhtar: An amazingly effective and inclusive gym. Though I left this gym a year ago due to a move, I still credit my physical wellness today to Brian and FIT360. Because of their both challenging and welcoming environment, I not only grew stronger and healthier, but I feel like I have a solid foundational knowledge to build on. I credit this a lot to Brian’s unique and effective instruction. Especially now after joining a new gym after my move from DC, I’ve really come to appreciate how high-touch their support is. I wouldn’t be able to weightlift, do kettlebell exercises, or use other equipment safely and confidently in my new gym today if it wasn’t for FIT360. Their trainers actually take the time to carefully instruct, give feedback, and keep you safe. Also this gym totally raised the bar for me in terms of what to look for in my new city. A gym can both motivate you to show up and know you’ll be welcome, and it can challenge you to be a stronger, faster, and fitter version of yourself.

Golzar Meamar: I was struggling to find a way to get back into strength training and moving my body intentionally during the pandemic. I am very lucky to live around the corner from this gem of a community gym! During the COVID-19 pandemic, Fit360 DC has been very communicative, flexible, and innovative when it comes to helping its members workout safely. The outdoor classes are challenging and efficient, and are completely masked and distanced, which has made them that much more valuable to me during the pandemic! The coaches are also informative and helpful, and challenge us consistently!

Balance Gym: Glover Park: what do users think?


Ashley M: I joined and was told the top floor would be closing in a week, but that ALL equipment and amenities would be retained (I was most interested in the sauna and Olympic weightlifting platforms). VERY disappointed in the false advertising. There is no longer a sauna, the locker room is TINY (the old one was super nice, the one available now is not), they got rid of the 2 Olympic weightlifting platforms, and when you email the manager to ask questions he ignores you. Really annoyed that I pay $100 a month and was told the gym has what I was looking for. When I talked to the front desk person (because the manager ignores emails), she said, “well you could go to one of our other locations if you want a sauna.” I tried to set up personal training, which you’re supposed to get 1 free session when you join, and I never could get a response from the person I was supposed to be hearing from. The person who works the front desk in the morning is often not there, so you have to wait around to get your parking validated. The pros: I really like the downstairs weightlifting room. It has a bunch of racks and free weights, and is technically a CrossFit gym even though there aren’t any official CrossFit classes offered. Some of the racks are really close together if you’re oly lifting, but we make it work. I also like that there is free parking at this location, unlike many others. Bring back the sauna and yoga classes and I’ll give a much higher rating. I can live without the oly platforms.

C E: The Go for It spirit at Balance Gym is beyond impeccable. All of us want to help out in the contribution to our wonderful community held together by the strength of our Federal Government. Imagine sitting in front of a computer screen, organizing files and papers, having important meetings day and night about policies that affect the 50 States if not the World. Yes, I would go again to Balance Gym!

Grace Phillips: Amazing facility! Very clean! Staff is very accommodating. I was only visiting for the holidays and they have a one week and a two week option! Equipment is suitable for heavy lifters and those who desire a simpler workout. They offer tons of classes at great times. I think I found my gym away from home!

Stephanie C. Giancola: An amazing gym with a phenomenal staff! Jacob, the GM was extremely patient and tending to my million questions about what the gym has to offer. Boy, was I surprised! They have a variety of good equipment available, different sections to do turf workouts, weight lifting, cardio, yoga, etc. the building used to be a spa, so the locker rooms are dreamy, and they offer specials on esthetic/massage work upstairs. I was able to take a boot camp class before signing up for a membership. The class was challenging, but within reason. The coach was enthusiastic, and everybody was having a good time. There is a Crossfit section as well! And they even offer classes like solid core, with the Pilates machine! This gym has everything you need, even parking in the back! Ask for Jacob and he’ll set you up. Also—lots of cool freebies like a free personal training session and three free Pilates reformer classes to start you off!
Response: Hi Stephanie - Thank you so much for such a detailed and positive review! Our entire team is dedicated to providing the highest quality fitness offering at a reasonable cost - very glad to hear you are among our satisfied customers! Look forward to seeing you soon at the gym! -Jacob

Gail G.: Group classes here are not very good, for the most part (definitely are exceptions- I also don't do yoga): same boring routines, same boring instructors. They do not change things up, and the popular instructors only teach 1 class a week, so that one class is packed. The group fitness used to be managed so much better-- constantly requested feedback and ideas.
Response: Hi Gail- We appreciate you leaving us feedback. My name is Jacob and I'm the General Manager of the club. While we are proud of our group exercise program, there's certainly always room for improvement, so thank you for bringing your concerns to us. Would you like to stop by my office at the gym and discuss? You can provide any additional feedback, and I can help identify the classes on our schedule that might work best for you. Just ask for Jacob at the front desk! At Balance Gym Glover Park, we're proud to offer a wide range of group fitness classes, all of which are available at no extra cost with membership. These include yoga, pilates, barre, zumba, piloxing, cycling, Balance Body, Bodypump and bootcamp. We also offer premium classes: CrossFit and DC's best Lagree program. We're here to support your fitness in every way possible. So please -- feel welcome to come on by my office and we can chat about how you can get the most out of your membership. Best, Jacob Kass General Manager, Glover Park

Maddie Mitchell: Balance Gym is truly one of the best in the city! Glover Park has super clean facilities, updated equipment, and tons of classes when I don't want to workout on my own. Trying to get my friends to join!
Response: Thanks Maddie! Glad you are enjoying! -Jacob, club GM

Momena Ali: The equipment is fine and the facility is clean but the majority of the staff are quite rude and unwelcoming. I went it and handed my card to a woman who didn't say hi back or you're welcome, and didn't even look at me. She has done this several times. Besides the friendliness of the staff, I enjoy working out there.

Seth Price: This may be one of the best kept secretes in dc. Space is smaller but not crowded. If you want a spa like atmosphere for your workout without all the usually gym rats this place is ideal My trainer moved here a few months back and I couldn"t be happier. I read a few negative reviews before I went and frankly don't get it. I was always treated well and felt it was great value.

Ryan McLaughlin: Do not do business with this company! They just sent me to a debt collections agency for a billing error THEY MADE!! I joined about a year ago and signed a contract for 6 months of crossfit because I was moving at the end of the 6 months. I paid the entire amount in full up front at the start of the contract. At the end of my 6 month membership I moved and did not expect to hear from Balance again. About 5 months later I get a email from them stating that they ran some report and found that they somehow credited my account by $214 dollars 5 months ago but were only telling me now. They have yet to provide proper documentation for this and insist I check my banking records to find their error in which they claim to have credited my account by mistake. Instead of taking the time to resolve the error they made, they sent me to collections. I instantly paid the credit collection agency as one would as to not risk having my credit score negatively effected. I'm very sad to have to write this review because I enjoyed their gym but their billing departments practices are fraudulent and highly unethical. I would highly advise anyone not to join Balance Gym.

Aaron E.: Beware of their misleading billing policies! I was a member here for a year. I emailed them in early January 2019 to cancel my membership and received a response saying (in all bold font) that since I had pre-paid my final payment, I would “have no further payments due,” and my membership would run out on March 8. Much to my surprise then, Balance charged me $29 on February 15. I emailed them and asked that this charge be removed since I was previously told that I had no further payments. The billing person (Alex) quite rudely responded to me stating that this $29 is an “enhancement fee” charged to all members on 2/15. When I insisted that this charge be reversed because I was misled by their original email, I was simply told no and that this is part of the membership agreement. A proper business would have apologized for misleading me and offered a refund for the $29. Balance, however, clearly only cares about getting as much money out of you as they can.
Response: As a courtesy, Aaron was issued a refund and we have since resolved this issue with better communication about our membership policies.

Ultimate Performance Personal Trainers DC: what do users think?


Dian Stevens: I started working at the DC location of Ultimate Performance in November 2021. I was in drastic need of a reset. I gained weight during the pandemic, thanks to many poor choices on my part, and I knew that I needed to take some action. Ultimate Performance exceeded my expectations. I worked with the amazing Owen Browne. Owen is a dedicated fitness professional. Owen is patient, calm, and invested in helping each of his clients achieve their fitness goals. I felt safe with Owen and enjoyed how he consistently challenged me. Please do, however, watch out for Owen with his rep counts. He always seemed to add a few extra reps just when I thought I was done. Ultimate Performance has a unique atmosphere. The gym is immaculate and everyone knows your name. All of the trainers take the time to motivate every client in the gym. Another bonus is watching the trainers work on their own fitness. The trainers all look amazing, of course, but there is no resting on laurels at Ultimate Performance. The trainers challenge each other just as they challenge the clients. It is a great motivator. I am grateful to Owen for helping me shed 28 pounds. In addition, my cardio endurance has improved, my clothes fit again, and I feel great both physically and mentally. So, if you are tired of watching the numbers on the scale climb ever higher, tired of the mental fog, tired of making excuses, and positively fed up with purchasing compression garments to fit in your clothes, then you should definitely consider Ultimate Performance. Working with Ultimate Performance has been one of my best decisions. I recommend Ultimate Performance without hesitation.
Response: Hey Dian, thank you so much for sharing your positive experience on our personal training at our D.C gym. We're so thrilled that your training helped you so much. We're proud of our team who provide valuable efforts to amazing clients like you. All the best with further training. We're rooting for you!

Michail Charissis: Gavin at UP has (safely, smartly) pushed me to work harder than I ever thought I could. His expertise has been key in helping me get closer to my fitness goals. And the results speak for themselves-- I am in the best shape of my life and still making progress! At the start, I was a bit resistant to follow recommendations for dietary modifications, but I think that was me just not wanting to disrupt my pandemic routines and habits (many of them not great). I'm glad I decided to give it a try-- it really did jump-start my progress. Over time I've been able to get to a place where I feel like (as a VERY food-oriented person) I'm definitely NOT on a 'diet', but just being mindful about what I eat and enjoying what I eat. The workouts are HARD. And that's what I wanted-- I didn't want to just be kept busy for an hour. Over the course of my time at UP, I've gotten stronger and been able to gain lean muscle mass. I am still occasionally surprised, and very happy, when I look in the mirror and see the changes that I've been able to make. I've never seen such a change in my physique before and it is very encouraging!
Response: Hey Michail, that's really kind of you to appreciate us in the most honest way. We're honoured to have dedicated clients like you who make sure with their efforts to smash the goals set for them! Thank you, we wish you all the best for further personal training at our D.C. gym.

Gino Vaccari: My expierence has been nothing short of amazing! I came in wanting to change after a decline in both diet and working out. My trainer Jonathan has held me accountable and took the time to understand my wants and goals and came up with a plan to get me there and I'm beyond grateful for his help and guidance throughout the last few months. UP does fully address both nutrition and workout plans to reach those goals that are personalized to you, which is initially why I was so interested in joining. As of today, I've been both the leanest and strongest I've ever been in the shortest amount of time possible, I was partially stunned at how quickly I made progress and I feel great. If you do your part and put in the effort to do what the trainers at UP show you, you will see results and fast! This is truly a step above prior personal training and fitness programs I have done in the past. It comes full circle to ensure that both in the gym and outside the gym you are meeting whatever fitness goals you may have. I have seen it for myself and am excited for what's to come next! I highly recommend UP to anyone looking to invest in themselves and are driven to see results!
Response: Hey Gino, thank you so much for your kind review. We appreciate you for putting in hard-work and getting results that you're proud of. We're so proud of our team at our Washington D.C. gym to provide such dedicated personal training. We wish you all the best for further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

James Wilson: After adding pandemic lbs I needed a reset. I was considering joining a local gym and getting a personal trainer once a week, but a friend pointed me to UP. Absolutely, without doubt, this was the better decision. The holistic approach of combining diet with workouts is key to reaching your goals. In 10 weeks I have lost 25lbs and halved my body fat %. Make no mistake, the workouts are HARD. After my first session I needed a 20-minute sit down in the changing room to recover my senses, and many times I have left feeling absolutely spent. But they have become much easier to recover from, and the feeling of achievement is insane. There's a great sense of camaraderie amongst both the trainers and the clients that keeps things enjoyable, and the strength gains come quickly so you feel the progress you are making. My trainer, Ali Woodward, has encouraged and challenged me in equal measure. He seems to have an instinctive ability to know when I need to be pushed, and when I can use a laugh. He, like all of the trainers, practices what he preaches - it's clear that they have all been through some pretty tough workouts... If, like me, you want to make a change in your life but are worried about motivating yourself, look no further than UP. Don't be put off by the cost - it's one of the best investments I ever made.
Response: Hey James, thank you so much for your kind review. We appreciate you for putting in hard-work and getting results that you're proud of. We're so proud of our team at our Washington D.C. gym to provide such dedicated personal training. We wish you all the best for further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

Henry Defriez: Fully recommended to anyone seeking to achieve big weight loss or other fitness goals. I have been working with UP for just over two months, and am halfway to my weight loss goal (30 pounds so far). My trainer, Evelyn, has been a fantastic guide and motivator in our sessions, but also outside the gym in monitoring my nutrition plan and helping me stay on track while travelling (picking restaurant menus, preparing hotel gym sessions etc.) While the focus is naturally on hard work, the atmosphere in the gym is friendly, supportive and relaxed. It’s not cheap, but it’s definitely worth it for the physical and mental health benefits, especially if like me you have been struggling to make those gains by yourself.
Response: Hey Henry, thank you so much for sharing your positive experience on our personal training at our Washington D.C. gym. We're so thrilled that your training helped you so much. We're proud of our team who provide valuable efforts to amazing clients like you. All the best with further training. We're rooting for you!

Sebastian Bernal: Overall, training at UP has been an extremely positive experience. I was able to increase my strength, reduce my body fat percentage, and lose more than 20 lb over a period of 16 weeks. At UP you'll find a group of professionals who are willing to provide you with a detailed diet, and guide and push you through intense hour-long sessions. Special shout-out to Clay for helping me reach my fitness goals. A great motivator even during the 6:00am sessions, he had a wealth of knowledge on dietary needs, safety techniques for all types of lifts, developed a unique training plan that focused on my fitness goals and needs, and kept me accountable. At UP you will reach your goals. However, it does require commitment. If you follow the diet plan and show up at every sessions, you'll like reach a level of fitness you did not have before. Otherwise, you'll be wasting your money - which is quite a bit.
Response: Hey Sebastian, thank you for your kind review. We are so glad we could motivate you for your transformation. The well-being of our clients hold maximum importance to us. Thanks for trusting us and all the best with further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

Alexander Ragonese: I’ve been working out with Robert at UP for a little over 6 weeks now. While I’m excited I’ve lost over 13 lbs, I am more excited how dramatically the UP program has improved my quality of life. I have more energy, think more clearly and am happier overall. I initially signed up thinking I would give this a try for a month and likely quit but I now struggle to imagine my life without the UP program. While it is expensive, you absolutely get what you pay for. The program is personalized and Robert is constantly available for my questions to ensure I stay on track in and out of the gym. I can’t wait to see what they next 6 weeks bring.
Response: Hey Alexander, for you to say "I’m excited I’ve lost over 13 lbs, I am more excited how dramatically the UP program has improved my quality of life." makes our day! Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so proud and honoured that you achieved that with the personal training at our D.C. gym. We wish you all the best with further training. We're rooting for you!

Brian Weiss: DO IT! It’s not just that Ultimate Performance and the program gets results (it does... I’m down 50+ pounds!), but it’s also a complete mind and body change that sets you up for long-term success. It really is training in the broadest sense, because yes, it includes strength and lifting, but it also teaches good habits on nutrition, hydration, sleep and overall wellness. The program emphasizes the interconnectedness of these elements with a cool app and a trainer who is always there for you (whether you’re in the gym or not). As for the gym in DC… a totally supportive community where the team knows your name, and everyone roots for one another. Special shout out to Gavin – a first-rate trainer who built a custom program for me (that drew on his deep knowledge about the science of fitness) and pushed me through every obstacle to get the results he said were possible on the day we met. He was right. Like I said, DO IT!
Response: Hey Brian, thank you so much for your kind review. We appreciate you for putting in hard-work and getting results. We're so proud of our team at our Washington D.C. gym to provide such dedicated personal training. We wish you all the best for further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

Alvin Saha: I HIGHLY recommend Ultimate Performance DC! My trainer, Malik Carter, has kept me motivated and stays on top of my nutrition every day. Without him, I would have not been able to achieve the progress that I’ve made so far. In 3 months, I have lost 15 pounds and have significantly reduced my body fat%. I went back and forth with myself for weeks before I joined UP, and I am very glad that I finally decided to make the leap. In fact, I’m so satisfied that I just signed up for another 3 month package so that I can continue my progress towards my body goals.
Response: Hey Alvin, thank you for your kind review. We are so glad we could motivate you. The well-being of our clients hold maximum importance to us. Thanks for trusting us and all the best with further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

Lee Ann C.: No matter what age you are (I’m 64!) or what shape you’re in, you will feel welcome at UP, and you will have the best gym experience of your life. My personal trainer, Jonathan Cardenas, is world class. He’s laser-focused on my workout, making sure that I’m doing each exercise in the safest, most effective way possible. He creates meal plans tailored to my nutritional needs, and he provides guidance on what to order when I’m eating out. Best of all, Jonathan is tuned in to what motivates me. At UP, you will not get a “cookie-cutter” gym experience. This is a gym that is focused on you, the individual. The results you get will astound you.
Response: Hey Lee, thank you for your kind review. We are so glad we could motivate you. The well-being of our clients hold maximum importance to us. Thanks for trusting us and all the best with further personal training at our Washington D.C. gym.

Balance Gym Foggy Bottom: what do users think?


Nathan Wirt: I used to like this gym, but as of late we now have two defunct pieces of equipment that have been that way for 2 months. To me that would bring them down to two stars, but after not getting a response via email to the manager of the gym I have downgraded to one star. Additionally, along with the regular monthly membership fee there is a biannual “upgrade” charge that is intended to be used by polling the membership, determining what additional equipment membership would like to add, and then using said funds to buy that equipment. I haven’t been polled for this upgraded equipment in 2 years nor have have I seen this equipment. Starting to see echoes of WSC.
Response: Nathan- Thank you for the honest feedback and we're sorry things at slipped these past two. It's been a less than ideal situation given the pandemic which has compounded our ability to enhance, upgrade and staff our locations. The good news is we're set to renovate our locker room and replace some select equipment over the next month as business has been finally picking back up. We hope you stick around to see these upgrades and my apologies if management has been slow to respond as our manager is currently away on paternity leave.

Isaac Flath: Solid Gym - Exceptional Staff. Ms Dee is at the gym working the desk among other things in the early morning when I go and she is very professional, enthusiastic, friendly and helps me with anything I need immediately.

Briana Provost: Really enjoy coming to this gym. Everything is always very clean, and the staff are friendly. It can be a little tricky to find it since it’s entrance is through the Fairmont, but would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a gym in the DC area.
Response: Thanks for training with us Briana!

Eleanor Rollings: I have been part of this gym for over 10yrs - the leadership of the gym has created a community of fun, informative and welcoming. The coaches are smart, engaging and will always answer questions. Never once have I felt that the classes (CF included) were beyond me or that only the 'cool kids' could participate. Thank you Balance for changing my life!

Emily Porat: Great gym with even better staff! I went to this gym weekly for a little over two years and have been really happy with my experience overall. It’s a small but well-appointed gym. Lots of cardio machines, a pool, and plenty of lifting equipment - 1 bench press station, 3 squat racks, and 2 platforms (one that also has a squat rack). I mostly came here to lift in the mornings and it was never too crowded. I didn’t attend many group classes, but the ones I did were small (<6 people) and well-run! The cherry on top is the top-notch staff. Miss D at the front desk is so friendly and welcoming, as are all the trainers I’ve chatted with. I’m only leaving Balance because I’m moving, and I’ll honestly really miss it!
Response: Hi Emily! Thank you for your kind words and your loyalty over the past two years. We're sad to see you go, but wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. And don't hesitate to drop by for a lift next time you're in DC!

Tatia Jahan: Terrible customer service. have reached out multiple times regarding my billing and they only responded when it was convenient for them. Once they took a good chunk of money out of my account, they stopped responding to my emails regarding my membership cancellation. First time I even emailed them, I had to follow up a week later to even get a response. The second time, I had to follow up again, call in several times, and still no response. Although the facility is nice, it's really not worth it for it's price. $99/month for a tight squeezed gym facility??? Equinox just about a block away offers more for around the same price. Saw a response from Balance Gym to one of the reviews about how "hotel guests rave out how spacious it is" lol. They are on vacation so for a hotel gym yes the size is adequate. Those people are not working out there daily, for a member who is NOT just a temporary hotel guest the gym is not spacious at all. Also, one of the front desk staff members is super rude. She is very condescending and unhelpful. When I asked her to assist me with an issue, she gave me a rude look and very little information as if I'm paying $20/month. I payed even less than that at Planet Fitness and got way better customer service from their staff

K W: UPDATE as of 3/5/22: The locker situation is as bad as ever. It is common to try 10-15 lockers before finding one that will work. ********* I have been going to this gym for 2+ years. I have noticed the quality of the gym has been deteriorating a bit. In the ladies locker room, many of the lockers don't work. One night, I had to change lockers five times to find one that would lock. There are also only two traditional elliptical machines now...and a lot of new fancy cardio equipment that I have no idea how to use. The handles on one of the elliptical machines is worn, and feels like it will fall off soon. Otherwise, the front desk is always polite, the locker rooms are nice and clean, and the gym is pretty clean. Just hope they fix the women's locker room situation soon!
Response: Hey Kristina - Thanks for the longtime patronage and please know that we're planning a full locker room renovation before the end of this year. This will include all new floors and layout including a lounge area. We'll take a look at that elliptical and if there's any others things you notice that need attention please don't hesitate to notify our staff. Thanks!

Sarah Harmer: Every single staff member is so kind, friendly and helpful! The gym is always very clean and well maintained. I have never left a review before, but this place and the people deserve it :)

Adil R: Good customer service but boy what a basic gym this is. I was a member at foggy bottom location and I can say that I have seen hotel gyms bigger than this. This is a very small gym for the membership cost. Machines are always being used and this gym gets crowded. I wouldn't recommend joining this gym during Covid. People are literally on top of each other. Not safe at all.
Response: Adil, we are happy you had an opportunity to experience our "Best Gym in D.C ." Award winning customer service. More members and guests are feeling very comfortable coming back to the gym during this pandemic based on our safety protocols, so we have made some adjustments. You say the weight room has felt a bit "small" during high volume times. We have made the same observation, so we created an additional weight room to help keep physical distancing. Ironically, the Foggy Bottom location is a hotel gym as well. Hotel guests often comment on how spacious and nice our facility is. I would be happy to extend another chance for you to visit our gym, and see how safe we really are. - CJ Finlay Balance Gym Foggy Bottom

Hope Ajayi: Critical: Communication, ProfessionalismPoor and petty customer service. Pool not the cleanest. How one communicates to customers or potential customers is telling. Would never ever recommend membership —

Equinox Anthem Row: what do users think?


Stephanie C: Some of the best group fitness instructors and personal trainers I’ve ever met!! Love their classes
Response: Thanks for the 5 stars, Joann!

Direnc Ak: I was a member at this location for over 2 years. I have nothing but positive experience overall. Before I signed up, they gave me a detailed tour and patiently answered my never-ending questions. The membership & auto-payment set up was a breeze. They have generous free weight area, very clean floors/lockers/restrooms, new & good quality machines, awesome shampoo/body wash/moisturizer products, and had a satisfactory enforcement of mask requirement during the pandemic. I felt quite safe and enjoyed my workouts. Just so you know though, it can get busy/crowded during 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on the weekdays. (Mostly from Monday to Wednesdays) Other than that, they also don't have a pool or basketball court like the one in Dupont Circle location. Anthem Row location is smaller comparing to Dupont Circle. Lastly, I think what I like most about this location is the overall quality of other gym members. I mean don't get me wrong, I've been to other gyms too, but at this location people are just doing their own thing, they don't come bother you, or push you around/rush you to finish your set quickly, walk around with a shirt off, or yell over your head and chat with their friends, or listen music very loudly, etc. Other gym members I've had interacted with during my membership were always quite polite/well mannered folks. I'll miss this location. Special thanks to Jeffrey (General manager) and Anthony (assistant general manager) for doing an amazing job!

Crissi Luv: I love this gym. Spa like and tranquil. The classes are a1. Times are great. Classes all day.
Response: Thanks for the feedback, Crissi!

Grant Stavros: Critical: Communication, ProfessionalismGot transferred overseas in late October of last year. Informed management that I was relocating overseas. Have been charged an additional 3 months including the month of January still haven't cancelled membership.
Response: Hi Grant, please connect with us at Concierge@equinox.com. We would love to get additional details that led to this review so we can investigate closely and identify opportunities for improvement in our services. Please be sure to mention your review so we can address quickly.

M Ben A: Walked in there to ask for membership and tour told only with an “advisor” not very welcoming that’s what I felt 😠the guy on the front desk did not even offer an appointment !!!
Response: Hi Ben, we're sorry to hear you've had this experience. We hope that you'll give us another shot to show you the service we are capable of providing. If you would like to reach out and share additional feedback, please connect with us at Concierge@equinox.com. Please be sure to mention your review so we can address quickly.

Brandon Morris: Critical: Communication, ProfessionalismSet up a membership without my consent. When I tried to email them to make sure it was cancelled they tried to sell me another membership. Very poor business practices. As a former member, I could have been an easy sell, but will never rejoin after this experience.

Ryan D: When it comes to a gym, you get what you pay for, and, although this is a bit pricey and restrictive, that added benefits make me want to go to the gym. Excellent free weight section and class offerings. My only suggestion--extend closing hour from 8:00 pm to 10:00 p.m.

Evan Long: Everything you’d expect from the brand, and very seldom crowded except at absolute peak times. They’ve taken enhanced sanitation seriously given COVID, and I particularly appreciate that they kept their word and allowed me to break my one-year contract a couple months early when I moved away.

Trade Stock: Critical: Communication, Professionalism, Quality2 experiences with this gym, 2 different employees. Both atrocious, -100/1. The have the same attitude your kids have when they start growing up. Beware...

Wallace Bachman: So glad Equinox has found its way into DC proper! This location is spacious by New York Equinox standards, both on the floor, which is a single floor with ample natural light, and the men’s locker room. It’s very clean, the staff are friendly and beautiful, and everything is in great repair. I’ve never been to an Equinox where the stretching area was so well-equipped (bands etc etc) and well organized. The Juice Press was small and didn’t have much, but that seems to be the way of Equinox juice bars over the last several years. 😢

Crunch Fitness - Chevy Chase: what do users think?


Jade Rodrigues: I’m really happy to have joined this gym. I got some sessions and my trainer Dawn was super helpful and is the sweetest person! I had never had a trainer before and she exceeded all of my expectations. When I joined the gym I wasn’t sure how to start and felt intimidated with all the equipments options. Dawn showed me a variety of exercises and created a workout plan that was tailored to me, to my needs and what I need to improve. Seeing her definitely made me feel motivated and confident to keep going regularly to the gym. Dawn is super nice, caring, and dedicated, and I would see her every day if I could!

Katerina Athena: I’m a new member of crunch and I already love it! Everyone has been super friendly so far. I’m doing personal training with Sean. He is very attentive and personalizes my workouts. I have previous injuries to my spine and he really checks in and makes sure I’m not doing anything to further my injuries and incorporates workouts that will help strengthen areas that will lessen my chronic pain. I haven’t used the showers yet but it’s super nice that they provide towel service so you don’t have to carry a soggy towel out with you. There’s a parking lot in the back and you can get validated for 100 free minutes. I got a great deal on a few personal training sessions but I will continue to go even after those are finished!

Jim Manning: I have been going to Crunch for over 5 years and couldn't be happier. Crunch acts like a "boutique" gym: the staff is very friendly; the housekeeping staff is meticulous about keeping everything clean; the equipment is well maintained. We are lucky to have Charles Foggie as our personal trainer. He is full of energy and has a great sense of humor and makes me want to do my best. We have noticed that all the trainers there are 100% focused on their clients and act like there is nothing else they would rather be doing. For anyone looking for a friendly, no drama place to work out, it would be hard to beat Crunch.

Brian Jessup: Can’t say enough good things about this gym. Housekeeping is always keeping busy making sure the gym is spotless. Management always tries to answer questions and resolve concerns as quick as possible. Front desk staff always welcomes you with a smile and most even by name. Trainers are very knowledgeable and attentive.

Zoe Watkins: I've had the pleasure of working with Selina, a wonderful fitness trainer at Crunch Fitness who is helping me reach my fitness goals. She is warm, professional and always ready to lend a helping hand. I was hesitant to work out with a trainer at first but after one session with Selina, I was hooked! I wanted to change our normal workouts a bit and add more weights and she was more than happy to adjust to my needs. If you want a trainer who is dedicated to helping you meet your fitness goals, pick Selina. The entire staff at Crunch Fitness are friendly and welcoming. I always recommend people this place if they are looking for an affordable and quality gym membership.

Scott Shay: I usually go over lunch and it's never crowded, so I'm able to get my workout in very quickly. Staff are friendly and the gym is well maintained and clean. It's a small gym but I rarely have to wait for any of the equipment, whether machines or weights. Lots of cardio choices as well. I've been going to gyms for 30 years and this is one of the better ones I've been a member of.

Mikhail Nowlin: This is by far the best gym I have worked out at since moving too Maryland. Very clean, very friendly non judge mental environment. The staff are great! And for a low monthly price compared too other gyms. Check it out!!!!

Camilo Conde: The vibe of crunch is excellent. My trainer, Sean, and other staff are extremely helpful and positive. The variety of equipment is diverse and gives gym goers the ability to train with a highly varied program structure if desired. Also a short walk from the Friendship Heights metro station.

Marie Moylan: Excellent facility. Always active but never crowded. Great range of machinery and space for exercising. The cleaning staff are of the highest quality and are always working to clean and sanitize the facilities. Covid rules were followed religiously and I have always felt ‘Covid-safe’ working out there. We’ll organized, professional and friendly.

Colton Long: I’ve been coming to this Crunch location since fall 2018, and it’s been one of the best gyms I’ve frequented in the DMV. They’ve handled the pandemic and its ups and downs like rock stars. The only main caveat I’ll add here is that they desperately need squat racks that don’t have fixed safeties. Deadlift platforms are also a huge need, but squat racks with adjustable safeties are #1 on the list in my view.

Reformation Fitness – Cap Hill: what do users think?


Gladwin Gilman: Had my first class ever in my life and to say I enjoyed myself is an understatement. I’m on the curvier plus size and felt included and welcome in the class. It was small and vaccination records were required. Our instructor Natalie Rico made us feel even more welcomed and she was so patient and we are 10000 percent coming back. If you’re not a typical fit lady with abs and previous Pilates experience try a class and ask for Natalie.
