F45 Training Noma: what do users think?


andrew: I joined F45 Training about 3 months ago and it was the best decision I've made on my fitness journey. It's been a struggle trying to keep myself motivated enough to reach my fitness goals and get back into the shape i was in pre-pandemic. The community and family aspect of F45 Training is what motivates me to come back each day, and I'm sure many of the members feel the same way. It's less of a "work out" when you're having fun with friends. The workouts can be tough for those just getting back into the groove of things, but let me assure you that you'll have an entire community cheering you on. The coaches are also extremely helpful and keep you on your feet during the classes. There's a different workout for each day of the week, where classes are 45 minutes long (Saturdays are 1 hour classes). The fitness challenge that the gym hosts is one of the ways that F45 Training keeps members engaged. We all know a friendly competition is a great motivator and everyone wants to win! There's always street parking in the area, but it just depends on when you're attending the classes. The dog park next door certainly makes it a bit tougher to find parking directly in front, but not a problem a block or two away. Highly recommend y'all check out the gym. They have free passes online. I took advantage of the 7-day pass when i was initially checking out F45. Happy to be your gym buddy if that's what it's going to take to get you back in shape. See you there! Note: the entrance to the gym and the gym itself is on L street, next to the dog park. Not sure why it’s listed as on K street.

Zeyu Hu: An amazing fitness studio in DC! I have been going since this gym opened and enjoyed every second of it. All the coaches are highly skilled, personable, and friendly. These classes are 45 HITT and brings a good balance of cardio and resistance-based training so you are constantly working different parts of your body. If you live in or around Noma, bE sure to check them out!

T Coles: F-45 Noma is a great place to workout. The coaches are great, environment is clean, and the people are chill. Such an encouraging atmosphere!!! Would recommend that you join us and work on whatever fitness goals you have for yourself😃.

Galaal Elsamadicy: Love this studio. I come pretty 6x a week. The coaches are all fantastic and there's a real sense of community among the members. Lots of regulars and new people alike. I've tried different studio gyms in DC and this is definitely my favorite!

Andrea: My first day I felt old and fat but the energy of everyone was so good. I was impressed by how everyone tackled the workout. Trainers were super chill. I couldn’t finish today but I’m definitely coming back…maybe not to Saturday just yet.

Russell Cross: I LOVE F45…I was just running and lifting weights on my own and thought I was in shape….after my first class I was assured I wasn’t in F45 shape and now I’m hooked! I’ve only missed two days in the last two weeks…I love the coaches and the workouts.

Christine Lien: The best part of my day is when I go to F45. The coaches are great and always push you to lift that extra weight and to go harder. I’ve lost almost 10 pounds so far by going to F45 and eating super healthy at week 5 of the the 8 week challenge

Anna Schuttenhelm: My absolute favorite fitness studio and workout! I love that every day is different and that I’m led by such knowledgeable coaches. Each class works me at my hardest and I feel completely satisfied at the end of each workout. I’ve been to a lot of different studios and gyms in the city and nothing is like F45. Completely worth the membership!

Brittany Gardner: Love it!! I’ve been going to this location since it opened. The trainers are very helpful and friendly. F45 Classes have a good balance of HIIT workouts and resistance-based training so you never get bored and your body is constantly being challenged. I’ve already seen changes in my body in just a few months time so I highly recommend checking them out!

Patricia Covarrubia: F45 has given me that extra push I needed to perform and look the way I wanted. The staff is amazing, everyone is welcoming and very helpful, they teach you good form and how to maximize your potential, they push you and cheer you up! the classes are very well structured, it is ever-changing so you can’t get bored! They have helped me improve and the schedule works for anyone who works a 9-5

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.

FIT360 DC: what do users think?


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

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.

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.

Michael Blosser: Great gym with great personal trainers and classes. Huge shout out to Nino who runs an amazing Box Fit class, great class for beginners to advanced boxers. Thanks Nino and Fit360!

Mercedeh Tariverdi: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, QualityA true community gym. It finally helped us to make a solid routine with variety of small group classes and wonderful instructors. They provide classes for every level and indeed they are keep pushing us through pandemic with online classes! A gem! Thank you Brian for keeping the lights on and us on our toes!

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!

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.

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 🙃💕

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!

Andrew Bogrand: Positive: Professionalism, QualityOne of the highlights of living in Mt. Pleasant! Friendly team, impressive range of equipment, and a great neighborhood vibe. Fit360 has also bent over backwards to maintain an extremely safe and clean operating environment during the COVID crisis.

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.

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.

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

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. Should you ever need any help, you can always reach us at Heretohelp@tsiclubs.com. Thanks again, Here to Help Team

Gold's Gym - Cap Hill: what do users think?


Sergio Guerrero: This gym is pretty good, on my visit it was clean and with many options for machines and free weights to help you get your best workout.
Response: Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re so glad you've had a great experience at one of our DC Metro locations! We'd love to hear from you -- Please feel free to reach out to our Member Experience team (memberexperience@goldsgymdcmetro.com) with any further comments, feedback, or suggestions!

xiomara sahle: I’ve been going here a week now.Staff is very friendly and people are there doing their exercise routine.Located side by side of the Federal Center metro.Once you get inside it’s the kind of place that you can focus on a vibrant workout.I love the AM time that suits my style.After a while I’ve gotten use to seeing the regular gym members.Positive vibes thus far.

Jahtay Teh: It's a mediocre gym, but there isn't enough space for the number of people that regularly workout there and they need an upgrade. The staff is very kind though!

Hafeez Giwa: Mediocre Service - Beware of Thieves!: Imagine finishing your workout, going back to your locker, and finding your padlock broken and wallet missing. That’s exactly what happened to me at Capitol Hill Gold's Gym on 26 Dec 2021. Front Desk's response was "we are not liable for theft" and "you are the second person that reported this today"... not encouraged by the indifference of the team. Particularly frustrating as I am visiting; having to freeze your cards and get replacements when you are thousands of miles from home is PAINFUL... Word to the wise...stay away

Wanda Wright: I went online and signed up for a free 3-day pass to see if I would like the gym, the staff, and its vibe before joining. I moved back to DC and was looking for something closer to home. On Sat 11/6/21 I spoke with someone name Kit or Kitty and asked if I could come in and try out the gym. She asked if I had a DC license and I told her I still had my MD license, and hadn't had the chance to transfer it to DC. This person told me that I could not get a free pass with the use of my MD license, but I could immediately sign up and buy membership with my MD license. This was stupid and made no sense! This DC location is WACK!

Erik Schafer: With 4 squat racks, this gym has made an effort to get as much useful equipment in a their space as possible. While lacking in some "nice to have" specialized equipment (standing calf raise, plate loaded hip thrust, glute ham raise) they have all the bases covered (machine press, row, leg extensions, leg curl, seated calf raise, and more), a few nice specialized machines (e.g. lat raise machine, hip abduction/adduction, etc.) a fair selection of plate loaded upper body machines, and plenty of pulley machines. They have a wide selection of dumbbell weights (there's one dusty rack of 110+ dumbbells, not sure how high they go), pre loaded straight and ez barbells, and preacher stations and plenty of adjustable benches. For upper body barbell work they have 4 flat benches, one incline, and one decline, which is pretty nice. They have a tBar row for plate loaded rows and they have a hinge for a barbell so you can do rows or landmine presses. There are two Smith machines, which is 2 too many imo 😅 but in case that's your thing, they're often empty. This gym really does put in a lot of effort to be useful, maximize their space, and as a result has a lot of capacity and lower wait times than you might expect. The staff are nice and friendly too. The bathrooms are clean. The facilities include showers and a dry sauna. It would be nice to get a plate loaded hip thrust machine, the one weak spot for this gym is no real posterior chain isolation work. It's really not easy to find space (or enough padding!!) to do real BB hip thrust. It would also be nice to get a longer "lane" for lunges or farmers carries, but space is a limitation here already. I think they really deserve 5 stars because of the emphasis they've made on building a useful space, with as many squat racks and benches as can reasonably fit.

Julie Wolf Kato: This gym has an abundance of equipment. It's in a convenient location and right off the Federal Center SW metro. It's also spotlessly clean.

Tanium T: The gym is too small for the number of members. I might come back if they open another in DC

Sam: Awesome gym - high quality equipment, nice staff, good amenities (towels, sauna, clean lockers and restrooms), free validated parking (for most hours of the day), and good vibes from fellow trainers. You get 90% of what Vida/Equinox offers for 25% the cost.

Dana: This is my home gym when I'm in town for business. Overall the place is clean, and we'll maintained. I've been going there for about 6 months now and other then a couple of treadmills all the equipment is maintained is good working order. It can get a bit crowded during peak times, but thats to be expected.. especially on universal chest day. The staff that run the front end are always, friendly and professional, they really do a good job. From what I've seen the greet everyone and say goodbye when they leave. Really great customer service. Overall, great place to workout.

Washington Navy Yard Fitness Center: what do users think?


Marta Savage: Would love to see more lunchtime and early morning classes offered, and a bigger weights area, but overall this is a nice gym and kept clean and neat. Really weird layout across the 3 floors but that's a limitation of the building that they've done their best with. Showers have super low water pressure and the locker rooms get very hot/steamy in the mornings - need more ventilation. Staff are great and always very helpful and friendly. Go early if you want a towel, they are gone by 0630 usually.

Lyric Hyatt: This gym is great and offers free personal training to active duty military members. They also offer group fitness classes and have three floors with a paddleball court, cardio machines, free weights and resistance machines, tons of workout accessories and locker rooms on two floors for men and women with showers.

Luke Hahn: Kept extremely clean with well kept equipment. Some places will need some extra ventilation still is a great and versatile facility for a DC gym.

Burt Melzer: Great gym and fitness center. Good choice of cardio items as well as weights. This is on base so you need access to base to be able to get on.

Eric Driest: Has all the equipment to get a good workout in, can be crowded during the morning hours 🏋️💪

Victor Guerrero: You can get a lot of your work outs done here. I wish the ceilings we're higher and they had more platforms.

Vanessa Amaya: Great staff, very clean and organized gym!

Marc Bernath: Devices to listen to TV on cardio machines don't work.

Travis Greaves: this place is phenomenal and has everything I need.

Michael Concannon: Great location to work out!!

Orangetheory Fitness: what do users think?


Sara Jane: I typically don’t leave reviews for companies but I was floored with OTF Navy Yard. I’m writing this review because it may help someone making a decision to patronize this business. Let me start by saying initially I was apprehensive because I’m by no means a fitness girl lol. I’m a plus size woman and going by the rumors of the workouts are “super hard core” made it daunting. My first class was amazing. The customer service was elite and I didn’t feel “judged” and I know many people can feel that in gym environments. They take great covid precautions too. The trainer I worked with was Abby. She was awesome and friendly. The front desk staff were also amazing. I plan on starting a membership. If you’re thinking about coming but are unsure definitely do it.

Chichi Enu: Orange Theory is one of the best workouts I have ever done, hands down. I am not an athlete, and I have really struggled with working out over the years, in fact I kind of hated it. But ever since joining Orange Theory this year that has changed. It is definitely a hard work out, but it is fun, the music is great, I get encouraged but not pressured, and I am getting stronger and running faster than I ever have. I mean, I ran 10 miles per hour the other day! Granted it was only for 30 seconds, but still!! I come from a 30 minute mile, so pretty SLOW, lol. 10 out of 10 for Orange Theory, DEFINITELY!! :-D

Geoffrey Adams: I have traveled to many studios since the pandemic. This studio takes the cake! All new equipment, very personalabble staff + friendly. Went above and beyond for my first visit. I will be back!

Lindsey Woody: I enjoy the close proximity to my apartment as well as the motivational coaches and especially, the Steve Aoki mix sessions. I am challenged every time in a new way, which keeps me engaged.

Karina Holland: Navy Yard OTF is the best I highly recommend. Hands down the best workout ever. The staff is also amazing and the facilities are super clean.

Brenan Tjelmeland: I was very apprehensive only because I have never been consistent with class style workouts. Boy, was I wrong! I wish I would have started Orangetheory years ago. I signed up two weeks ago and have been going consistently every two days. I feel amazing after each workout (besides being incredibly sore) and I've probably burned more calories working out in the past two weeks than I have in the past two years. The classes are engaging, motivating, and the coaches are well-versed and easy to talk to. I couldn't recommend Orangetheory more (Navy Yard specifically). Thank you for a renewed motivation to be in the best shape I can be!

David Smith: It was a very nice first experience. The individuals at the front desk were courteous and explained how the process works with the HR monitors and the work out regimen. They gave us good insight on how the packages worked and the best value for the amount of workouts my fiancé and I were looking for. I also just appreciated how friendly they were. There were lots of laughs and they made us feel like we were already regulars. Philip, our instructor, WAS AWESOME during the workout. He made sure to continuously check in on us, but not hang over shoulders. I appreciated his methods to motivate myself and others in the group working out. I'm definitely looking forward to more workouts in the future there.

Nina Lattimore: Positive: Qualityi appreciate the coaches at OT. Everett always encourages me to keep going. His favorite line "Someone is feeding off your energy. Keep going." I appreciate the kind staff and the upbeat music that makes the hour long workout go by quickly.

Austin Graff: Orangetheory Fitness is an intense work out that follows the same base format (a third on treadmills, a third on rowers, and a third on the weight floor). Within that format, each day is different based on what you do on the treadmill, rowers, and weights. The treadmill asks you to either run at your base pace, push pace, or all out pace. The rowers often have you row for several hundred meters and then do squats, jump squats, or a weighted ball work out in between. The weight floor sees the most variety from bicep curls to core to abs. Everyone does the work out at their own pace, but the goal is to get your heart rate to the orange zone. That means everyone is wearing a heart monitor and you can track your progress on screens. The playlist is always on point and inspiring. This particular location is in Navy Yard by Slipstream. It's larger than other locations and has two unisex bathrooms and two showers (bath towels are not provided, but shampoo, conditioner, and soap are). The lockers have their own locks on them that are easy to use. The staff are super nice at this location. The only complaint about Orangetheory in general is the price tag. It's expensive! All locations within D.C. are considered premium locations so it's more expensive. For the unlimited class package, it's well over $200 a month.

A M: The way they have handled my membership in COVID has been awful. I explained to them at the beginning that I had a health condition that made me returning to the studio before I was fully vaccinated impossible. They made me get a doctors note, which I did in which my doctor asked that my membership be frozen until I was able to be vaccinated. They told me they would accept it and freeze my account for 60 days and follow up again before 12/21 to freeze it again. Why they needed to do this was beyond me since there was no vaccine then and no ability for me to return. They never followed up - they claim they texted me but I went so far as to check my actual cell phone records and it never happened. So they charged me instead and refused to reverse the charge. It’s sad because I was planning to return after I was vaccinated but after the way they treated me I will NEVER patronize an OTF again.

Orangetheory Fitness: what do users think?


R bali: OTF has been my go to place for a great workout. The place has been impeccable in terms of inspiring coaching, cleanliness before and during the pandemic. The coaches, Julie is a force to reckon with and her energy and enthusiasm can brighten any dull day. Joanna is another gem with her kind demeanor and inspiring music. The owners are wonderful and truly vested in the place and put the customers first. So grateful that it’s been functional in-spite of the uncertainty around us.
Response: Thank you Ruchira! You are amazing and we love having you part of our community. Thank you so much for this!

Emily Ewers: The workouts are great and the coaches and staff are amazing! I have been doing Orange Theory for almost 3 years in various cities and this location is one of the best. Not to mention that I am in better shape than I was in my 20s! I hope this studio and OTF keep on doing what they’re doing because it’s definitely working :)
Response: Thanks for the love!!! You are giving us the warm and fuzzies and we are so happy to be able to change lives every day with #MoreLife!!!! Thank you!

Abby Royal: I love everything about this workout. I have never been a runner but the format has allowed me to incorporate running into my life in an approachable way. I feel and see the difference OTF has done for my health and body. The Tenleytown studio is especially great! All of the coaches clearly care and push you in an encouraging way and make sure you are doing what’s best for your health and body.
Response: Thank you Abby! This means the world to us!

Teresa Bernstein: Orange Theory is the BEST workout there is around! Hardest workout I’ve ever done, great variety, works your whole body — every day is different! Tenleytown location has awesome coaches and great music!
Response: Thank you for your 5 star review! We appreciate you!

Kerry Sturgill: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, QualityOT gives me strength, energy and fuel for my life. The varied exercise routines make working out fun, not work. The coaches inspire and care about my personal goals. It has taken years to find an exercise approach that works for me. Now that I have I couldn’t be happier!
Response: Kerry, thank you so much for your kind words! They mean so much and we LOVE having you as a member!

Emma Heidinger: My friends and I absolutely love OTF…I never leave not feeling satisfied with my workout. It’s not only a great challenge, but an all around 10/10 experience!
Response: Wow! Thank you for sharing and we love having you!!!!

Ellen Eckert: i've said it before, will say it agan: all you have to do is show up. OT keeps me on track.
Response: We look forward to your next visit! Take care and THANK YOU for your 5 star review!

Nicole Borrello: I love that I'm essentially getting a personal training session at a "regular" gym kind of price. Actually I'm getting something better than that - I'm getting a full body workout - cardio and strength - all in an hour and all without me having to really think about it - my body just does what it's told! The coaches are great and super supportive. They watch to make sure you have the correct form and are getting the biggest bang for your time in the studio. And the front office staff are AMAZING - how they know who we are all the time, it's a talent. And they are there to answer any and all questions. They help make my mornings a little brighter!
Response: What an incredibly thoughtful and generous review, Nicole! Thanks for your kind words. We appreciate your shout-out to our coaches, as our team loves to provide you with the best workout experience possible. We absolutely love having you as a member. Keep crushing those work outs! 💪

Ginger Mandel: I really love Orange Theory -- I am about 50 classes in and already obsessed. I love the motivation that I feel when I go to class by being around others doing the same workut. I test my body for everything it can do each workout, especially on the treadmill. I am feeling much more confident about my body and what I can do already. Thank you Orange Theory for making me motivated to work out each day I go!!
Response: Wow, thank you so much, Ginger! We love having you as a member and are so glad to hear how much you enjoy it here with us. You've been absolutely crushing these workouts and should be so proud of the work you put in. Thanks again for the review - and for being part of our Orangetheory fam! 🧡

Gene Procknow: No two workouts are the same. They don't get stale. Positive, upbeat coaches no matter how poorly I perform. Willing to give me corrective advice when necessary. I also like the friendly front desk crew. They always greet me with a smile and make me feel welcome.
Response: Gene, thank you so much for your incredible review. Our entire team appreciates your kind words and getting to see you here at the studio!

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.

Planet Fitness: what do users think?


Millennial Max: The best thing about this gym is the amount of equipment you can use! This very location is where I started my -100lb weight loss journey. It's really close to home for me, literally! Had one bad experience here.. I wore a tank top and they denied me entry because it was a "stringer"..? There was the exact same shirt being sold to women. I was only allowed to workout if I purchased the female shirt!
Response: Hello Max! At PF, we strive to create a safe and comfortable environment for our members. Because our clubs are independently owned and operated, dress code policies may vary by club. You can find our general policies here: planetfitness.com/about-planet-fitness/planet-fitness-policies. If you have any questions, please reach out to your home club's management team!

J Peter Loftus: I’ve been working out at planet fitness in ivy city since 2015. The facilities are always clean and professionally managed. The staff are friendly and courteous people. There are always options even if the free weights and smith machines are taken so no excuses. Once you figure out the best time for your workout it is easier to set a schedule. Being open 24 hours is an advantage one must not ignore.Many times I have had a burst of energy at 3am and gone to work out there.
Response: Thanks for the love! At our Planet, we are committed to providing our members with a legendary fitness experience. We hope to see you at our gym again soon!

Lexie Rock: Very friendly staff and clean Planet Fitness! Javon is the best. Recommend parking in the garage. It’s free if you validate your ticket before leaving (if you’re there under 90 minutes you don’t need to validate). A great price for a nice gym. I used the hydrobeds as well. They’re awesome for post workout. The lockers also have locks attached to them which is nice. Pro tip: put in your phone the number and code of the locker you picked. The gym is on the second floor but they have an elevator if you need it. There’s also a bike rack right outside of the door and metered street parking.
Response: Hi there, Lexie! We're so glad to hear that you've been enjoying your time at our Planet! We try our best to provide a Cleansiderate atmosphere so everyone can feel comfortable hitting their fitness goals with us. Thanks for your review, and great ideas with those tips! If you need any new gear, check out our online store (pfstore.com), and don't forget to download our app for the simplest check-in process! https://planetfitness.app.link/download

Erica Phillips, M.A., Resident in Counseling: The facilities are clean. It’s very easy to get in and out to use equipment without any major waits. The staff always greets you with a smile and a hello which is such positive energy to get you motivated for your workout. The lockers come with built in locks that you enter a code to use, so no bother carrying around bulky locks anymore. If you are forgetful put the code in your phone! While I’ve had no need to use the shower area since I live so close, I would not hesitate to use them if I needed to as they are always clean. I have Black Card membership and the hydro waterbed massage is always great after a workout. I would just recommend that they add the stretching cage to the facility.

Gisselle Ramirez Orozco: I like that the place is very organized, has clean installations, respects the covid protocols, the restrooms and lockers work very well. You have a lot of variety to do a workout with the machines, and finally, the staff is kind and patient. Additionally, you have the hydromassage, which is amazingly relaxing. I definitely would recommend having the membership and joining this gym!
Response: We're glad to hear that you're enjoying our club, Gisselle. Thank you for your review!

Vlad Z: I worked out here while visiting DC (from NY) and this Is the best planet fitness I’ve ever visited. Plenty machines all on one floor, huge space, lots of light, great staff.

Jeremy Albrecht: Not bad. Cant make too many complaints about a gym that only costs 20 something a month. I have only been twice, but it is about what I expected. The temp is a tad hot in there on sunny days but all else is wonderful.
Response: Thank you for the feedback! We're happy to hear that you are enjoying your time with us so far, and we're excited to see more of your journey. Keep up the awesome work!

Jacob Ferguson: Thank you very much to one of DC's only 24 hour gyms, located on a nice block surrounded by ghetto. Great price, the music is consistently God-awful, the stuff is purple, I suspect I caught Omicron from the showers, and I got charged a 2nd annual fee one day after canceling (being a member for 1 year and 2 months). Bittersweet, indeed...
Response: Hello, Jacob. We take our member's health and safety very seriously. Please email us, so we can learn more about your experience at our planet. social@planetfitness.com

ᗩᖇᗰY ᗯIᔕᗴ: I workout here often. It's clean and has lots of space. They also have new equipment. The staff are great. The atmosphere is great.
Response: Your feedback is greatly appreciated! It's always our pleasure to provide a clean workout environment, attentive staff, and everything you need to crush your fitness goals here at our Planet! Keep up the excellent work and thank you very much for being a part of the PF family. 👍

Tomeka Gueory: I love this location! Friendly staff, great team. I have been a member since this location opened. I like to go early in the morning. It's not crowded during this time. The facility has effectively implemented the Clean-first strategy during the pandemic. Everyone wears a mask and team members are constantly cleaning. I usually bike to this location and bike parking is in front of the gym!
Response: Thank you for the amazing review, Tomeka! We're glad that you're enjoying our club and that we can provide such a friendly, safe, and clean fitness environment. Thank you for choosing us as your trusted fitness partner, and we hop you have a great day!

VIDA Fitness U Street: what do users think?


Benyam Ephrem: Overall: Solid gym, nothing is overtly missing. You can do everything you need to do. Summary: Basically 3 floors, cardio floor, machine + dumbbell floor, powerlifting floor (w/ dumbbell rack). Good: The ambiance and vibe is good. You feel like you are working out in a cave with a bunch of people. Bad: - Working out from 5-6/7 sucks. The gym is too small to serve the load of patrons at rush times. There aren’t enough benches & benches for presses so you find yourself waiting for major lifts. - If you go any other time that is non-rush it is a solid gym - The benches are way too close to the mirrors, you can’t do heavy lifts and drop weights. It just feels cramped. You have to maneuver around people doing heavy lifts and there are just personal space issues (when squatting I don’t want anyone near me, we have mental bubbles). - Maybe picky but the dumbbells are decent ones. I’ve used better with more grip (steel handle with a mesh pattern etched in). They are a bit narrow in grip and have plastic handles with decent grip. This nuance is kind of annoying and grip is worse so I just do few dumbbell movements now. I’d give ~3 1/2 stars but I imagine there is a huge constraint on real-estate within the city so a gym can only be so large, etc (can’t compare it to gyms I’ve been to elsewhere). But at ~$120/130/mo you’d want more space and just…more. But this was the closest complete gym option to me (.8 mile jog) and the vibes are good. Edit: Have visited all other branches. Nice to be able to switch up gyms on a day you have time to jog farther. Great branding & vibe consistency. Great value add if you want to switch things up and drop in other gyms.
Response: Hi Benyam, thank you for your review and feedback. We take great pride in our facilities and glad to hear you have overall had a great experience. I'll make sure to share the feedback regarding both the dumbbell grips and the placement of benches in relation to the mirror. I invite you to try out some of the other locations in your membership if you get the opportunity, although I can appreciate that our U Street location is less than a mile away from you and that's fantastic. Stay strong, stay well, and see you at VIDA again soon!

Smiley Sunshine: Definitely worth the money spent! My favorite is the Sweatbox Class. Lost 14 pounds within a month and a 1/2 just in time for my wedding. Took a month off, then returned and worked out until the day of my surgery. I am recovering and So far, I can only do bike and light cardio :( but safety first. Once I'm cleared to do high intensity workouts, I will go to the Sweatbox. Can wait!
Response: Wow, and thanks for this review! Glad to hear you got the results you wanted for your wedding and hope you had a great time on your big day. It sounds like you're well on your way back to Sweatbox and we can't wait to have you rejoin some classes. Take it easy on the road to recovery and we'll see you VERY soon. Stay strong, stay healthy, stay well!

Taylor Hayes: I pay entirely too much money for there to be towels in the floor from a roof leak, a scale in the locker room that has been low battery for a week so I can’t weigh myself, and RUDE STAFF. Will be canceling my membership this month.
Response: Hi Taylor, we're super bummed to hear this and our facilities team works hard to ensure these kind of issues don't happen. I'll flag this with them, as well as the management team at U Street, and see what's going on. We hope we don't lose you as a member and invite you to chat with the team there so they can actively address your concerns. Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback. - The VIDA Team

David Gershman: In the most appropriate way, I can say that Vida does not prioritize member safety in its steam rooms and saunas.
Response: Hi David, thanks for taking the time to leave this feedback. We recently rolled out new policies regarding our steam rooms and sauna with this goal squarely in mind, so curious to hear what sort of issues you are having. Please feel free to speak to the GM at U Street privately and/or contact our DIB with your concerns. Their information can be found at www.vidafitness.com/diversityboard. We take our members safety very seriously. Thanks again.

Joe Kawly: The most decent gym in DC. But lately, they have been faking short especially when it comesTo maintenance. It feels like each day there is something not working.

Mattia Pallozzi: Honestly I have had always a lovely experience, clean fun and the staff especially has always been pretty amazing, from managers to trainers! 👌🏻👌🏻
Response: Hi Mattia, thanks so much for the 5 star review! We think our staff is pretty awesome too and glad to hear you're getting such great service. Not to mention our housekeeping team, which we truly believe is the best in the biz. Thanks again and see you at U Street again soon!

Harry Longlast: I a had meeting with Paul and all I can say is that I have never felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed before. His rude comments about my " big chunky thighs and lack of motivation " were very unprofessional. How do you even motivate someone by highlighting his/her insecurities? He was very rude and impatient. I am not an experienced lifter, however I was under the impression that the staff and culture at vida fitness were solid. The level of unprofessionalism really upset me and will for sure never come back. He was trying way too hard and pushing me to buy a membership and did not even consider my questions, concerns. I believe as a sales director or rep; you must be able to not only know your product but to hear your clients needs in order to better cater to their need. I run a local blog with over 5,000 daily readers and will for sure write about this awful experience. I understand I am overweight but I want to make the changes in my life that get me healthier; I just wish mr Paul, as a professional would be more empathetic and see me as a human being; not just a number.

Reynaldo Castillo: Positive: ProfessionalismAmazing workout experience from the membership consultation to the quality of the facility. Paul Leiby understood my fitness goals and listened to all my concerns as I came from another gym franchise. I fully endorse the quality of the experience and I guaranty you will see results in your fitness goals.
Response: Thank you for the kind and thoughtful review, Reynaldo! We're thrilled to have you as a member of the VIDA Fitness U Street community, and we're delighted to hear that Paul has been such an asset in helping you reach your fitness goals. Take care - and thank you for joining us!

Jordan Bayless: Absolutely love the gym itself. The facility is large and has a dedicated floor for compound lifts filled with squat racks and deadlift platforms. Unfortunately, personal trainers usually dominate this space and use it for calisthenics and TRX workouts. Granted, they seem very focused on ensuring their clients have a great experience, just at the cost of other members. As a result, there is almost never an open rack or platform. The locker rooms are top notch. With a sauna, steam room, and showers that have excellent bath products, there is amazing attention to detail. The rest of the facility is nice as well. Although, it is devoid of some typically essential equipment such as seated leg curls. These spaces, to include cardio rooms, are often overcrowded and only seem to be less trafficked from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Overall, the facility is great, to include the rooftop pool. However, these seem to be used as selling points to encourage new members and after joining, the organization only is invested in trying to get members to spend more money through personal trainers, nutritionists, etc. rather than ensure members spending $180/month have an enjoyable experience.

Robert Mckernan: Pros: They have an entire floor dedicated to power lifting that has squat racks and platforms so you don’t have to wait! One always opens up within 3-5 minutes even at peak hours. The roof top pool is great and so is the food as well. I love those friggin’ wings and drinks! They also never run out of sanitizer, sprays, wipes and towels. Great hours is also a plus. I have a second membership at a competitor for later hours when my schedule entails but vida is definitely my preferred location. The members are super friendly and great and I never see anyone not masked or sassy when they’re required; I’ve made many friends at the pool so keep that in mind. Value is a plus; I’m used to spending ~150-300/mo for other premium/lux gyms and I feel what they charge is very fair. Also a barber in the gym is great and they have quality cuts. Cons: Their billing department is deficient, I’ve never had a issue with a gym not being able to schedule recurring charges, and it seems they have been unable to properly due so. The $150 sign up fee that gets rolled over into credit to use at the gym, it took two months for it to get added into the barber account. I had to follow up about it several times to make that happen. Very frustrating and not a very luxurious feeling to have to deal with that as a new member. Each month billing cycle roles around and i ask them (FD) if everything is squared away and they say yup/yes you're all good. Yet for the past two months in a row they contact me weeks after it’s due saying I have late fees and haven’t paid. Even when I’ve called and spoke to them each time on the phone after the first warning they still don’t properly process it and it ends up back after 10 days in a email; you have late fees, it’s very disappointing. I know they’re able to process my card; they’ve charged that same card “no show fees” when I’ve booked for the pool and it’s canceled due to rain. So it seems sus. It took about 3 weeks of my effort of calling, emailing and talking to the front desk to get that squared away to refund the “no show fee” when they closed the pool due to weather. In that process many emails were not answered. They did however eventually reverse the charges but it wasn’t easy and the communication was absent until finally getting ahold of the billing manager in person as she was taking out trash one day. She was very kind and apologizes and seemed to be the person who gets things done. If I were the owners I’d give her more tools or people to work in her department to make their billing staff efficient, or let someone else take out trash so she can better allocate her skills to where they’re most needed. The rude front desk manager in other posts is most likely John/Jon, he doesn’t listen to guests and always responds with attitude. I tried to review my account today and was met with “well maybe you should try paying your card so it doesn’t decline”, like dude I’ve never carried a balance, and when I paid it with the same card today in person there was no issue. I definitely did not appreciate his less than helpful personality. I would like this late fee reversed but I would happily pay $10 to not have to talk to John/Jon again. **Communication** Forget about trying to leave a message anywhere, inboxes are full at their billing specialists, pool inbox, everywhere on their phone tree. Emails aren’t answered, so your only chance to have them resolve any issue is in person, provided you find someone willing. Penthouse reservations; weekend slots for premium seating are booked quickly and often occupied primarily by their employees; seems sus. If you want a spot; set a alarm for 167.9 hours before you want it and immediately book when it changes to 168 hours, else lose your chance to vibe on a daybed or cabana on the weekend. In summary: it’s a good place and I’m sure they're doing the best they can during this pandemic, but boy it can be frustrating. If it gets better I’ll be sure to update this review. Best Rob

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

Balance Functional Fitness Thomas Circle (Formerly CrossFit Balance): what do users think?


Joseph Trunzo: I worked out at Balance for the four years I lived in downtown DC. Monthly rates are very reasonable and the multi-level facility has all the functional fitness and powerlifting tools you could ever want. As long as I avoided peak hours, the number of humans was very manageable. The Balance staff was friendly and handled the pandemic transition quite well. I don't think you'll find a better gym anywhere in DC.

Arielle M. (Mermaid): I don't recommend ever using the trainer by the name of Philip Pasch. His attitude and verbal abuse on a daily basis while he's outside of work is atrocious. I don't know if that's anger from steroid use. But he needs to chill out and watch his mouth. We all know an employees behavior outside of the workplace can reflect the company they work for, so here's your heads up!

Cameron Uslander: It took leaving DC and looking for a new gym to know how good I had it at Balance. The coaches are fantastic, the price is one of the best in DC, and if the sense of community doesn't motivate you to get to the gym and improve yourself, nothing will. Yes, the classes can be a bit crowded but I've never been turned away, the coaches always know how to make it work. And yes, all these people mean the equipment is not the most immaculate. Ultimately, though, you're there to get a workout, get stronger, and to be a part of a supportive community that'll help you get there. You'll get all the above here and more.
Response: Thanks Cameron! We miss seeing you in the mornings here at Crossfit Balance!

Taylor Koerner: I had the pleasure of working out here for a month while in DC. It's a really great gym, lots of good coaching and they pay attention to everyone to help everyone get better. The programming was well done and thoughtful. I think it's representative of the culture of the gym that even though the 715 am class was sometimes crowded everyone worked it out together and there were never any bad attitudes. I will definitely drop in if I am back in the area.

Grady Lynn: Great gym with incredible coaches. I was in DC for a summer internship and regularly attended the evening classes for the 12 weeks I was here. The community was great, the workouts were challenging, and I learned a lot from the coaches. There was a wide range of Crossfit experience in the classes, making it easy to fit in. They also offered me the best rate for summer interns that I could find in the area (and the membership was unlimited!) I strongly recommend checking this gym out and I hope that I can come back to visit sometime!
Response: Thanks Grady! It was great having you this summer. All the best in your future endeavors.

Kenneth Roraback: The coaches are fantastic about critiquing form and helping people to improve toward their fitness goals. The community is very welcoming, and I'm particularly fond of the 6:15am weekday class, which has a great group of attendees each day and tends to be pretty gender-balanced--a rarity at a crossfit gym.

Jerry Johnson: I've worked out two times now at Crossfit Balance and have visited all of their 3 locations, which include Thomas Circle (just worked out during free time and not a Crossfit class), Foggy Bottom (free time- Did a WOD of my own), and Glover Park, which is my personal favorite (worked out twice with a Crossfit class). Both times were amazing. Kudos to Danielle, who "brings it" as a coach. You can tell she doesn't just coach people, she lives it, and her energy is contagious. Sort of like, if I'm learning how to shoot, I want to go to a known marksman. Danielle, it is obvious, can probably outwork anybody in the gym most days. More than that, this Crossfit box seems to understand proper technique and injury recovery over just going Rx on a WOD. That's important. In a nutshell, my observations on the gym spaces- 1) Glover Park - not near a metro, so you hve to drive, but. If pluses are the space. Bottom floor is for Crossfit WODS, but the 2nd floor has enough space and equipment for your own WOD and mobility exercises. Also, you get two hours of free parking in the parking garage - a major perk. 2). Thomas Circle - probably has the most space for working out, but, seemed a bit more broken up with smaller workout areas. That being said, I couldn't try out the 1st floor Crossfit area, which looked pretty nice. Near metro. 3). Foggy Bottom - by far, the nicest, with a salt water pool and very nice showers and programmable lockers. Near metro. I wrote a book, but there you are.

Richard Odom: Nice box. Met some nice members and a cool coach. Surprised by the air conditioning and the lack of a rack. I would visit again. It's not a must stop but if you're in the area and looking for a WOD, stop in.

George Albany: So many options for all fitness levels and interests. I don't use the crossfit 'box' but I have heard only good things. Great space on the top floor for stretching and floor movements. I've also rarely seen it so crowded that I couldn't get a workout in.

Randy Chapman: Great gym and awesome coaches. I highly recommend if you are in the city.

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 —

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.

Physicality DC: what do users think?


Keva P: This is an awesome place for strength training. As a physical therapist I loved that their class syllabus was structured to target strengthening of muscles which help to stabilize our joints. They don't have us just do a bunch of random exercises. They have a plethora of gymnastic specific equipment that non gymnasts can use.

Meghna Balakumar: I’m way overdue in writing this review. Chris Garay is extremely knowledgeable, professional, kind and highly skilled. He has such a profound understanding of anatomy and is able to scale exercises for anyone. As someone who was told I should never workout by all of my doctors, my joints have never felt better and I owe it all to Physicality. After 7 years of constant back and knee pain, I’m virtually pain free and am so much stronger. Highly recommend coming here if you want to focus on strength, stability and mobility.
Response: Thank you for such a kind review Meghna, and it has been amazing to see your progress while training with us!

Ana Kiklevich: I was looking online for a trainer in DC to improve my strength in gymnastics and aerial acrobatics and found Physicality GST. Excited, I rushed the next day to check out the gym facility and meet the coaching team. My expectations were totally exceeded. Facility-wise - very well equipped with pretty much all you need for hard core gymnastics and strength training. But what is a facility without a coach? Chris is extremely knowledgeable, methodical, confident, versatile, and on top of that, a great cheerleader. Trust me, you will need it in strength training! As our sessions progress, I am impressed with the exercises he chooses for each pt session. They are challenging, non-standard, and simply working. I am on my way to great things with this coach!

Francis Jung: I, a physical therapist, have been collaborating with coach Cory Hill to serve mutual clients for several years. Coach Hill with a record of World Champion in Taekwondo has very unique holistic approaches and is one of the best movement/exercise experts in DC area. He promotes and enhances best optimal outcomes safely for his clients. I highly recommend him and his facility.

Christopher Anderson: I'm a yoga teacher and I do 90 minutes of yoga six days a week. I go to class here a couple times a month to work on strength training and develop movement patterns that are missing from my daily yoga routine. These instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful and I trust them guide me without letting me hurt myself. It's also an intense and fun workout in a small group setting.

D. Turner Hoff, Jr.: Let me start this review by saying that I’m not generally one to write reviews. In fact, this may be the first review I’ve ever written. Also, because I’m about to go all-out fanboy on Physicality, I should probably mention that I was not prompted nor asked to write this review. Lastly, I was a personal trainer in a past life, which I mention just in case you think the additional context valuable. So, now that that’s out of the way… Physicality is objectively one of the best gyms in the DMV, and probably the country (I know, big talk). The coaches, Chris and Cory, have such a deep knowledge and understanding for how the body works/moves. The weekly programming is thoughtful and focuses on strength AND mobility, something I’ve found most gyms advertise but few practice. There is also an emphasis on quality over quantity, improving strength through the full range of motion and progressive overload. All the exercises can be (and are) scaled so that members of all skill levels feel comfortable and can continue to improve. The class environment couldn’t be friendlier and is competitive in all the good ways, meaning that folks are pushing each other to train harder, while also ensuring that there isn’t a sacrifice in quality (the coaches, of course, are also actively monitoring). As I’ve gotten older and my interests and reasons for why I train have evolved, it’s been such a pleasure to have found a gym that is focused on more than just near-term results. While there is certainly an emphasis on consistent improvement via progressive overload, the programming is also designed for health and longevity, which has become increasingly important for me in recent years. I can’t say enough good things about Physicality. I regularly (3-4 times/week) attend the group classes but feel as though I get many, though certainly not all, of the benefits of one-on-one training sessions since the coaches are so actively involved in providing guidance for each member during the group class sessions. Please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and sign up for the 5 classes for $50. It's an absolute steal. If you don’t see the value after five classes, I will personally refund your $50 (joke, of course, but that’s how much value I see in what these folks are doing)

Elias Riskin: Can’t recommend this place enough. It’s addicting. Chris, Cory, and Shawn do an incredible job scaling each class and exercise so that it’s always challenging but attainable. I’ve had a long history of back, hip, knee, and shoulder injuries and their program has helped correct my structural and muscular imbalances and move me to a place where I’m virtually pain free.

Aaron Trent: Truly excellent, thoughtful and effective gymnastics-based strength and mobility training. I’ve been training with Physicality for a little over a year, and my shoulder strength and stability has increased dramatically.

Emmi Marie: Great gym, great owner, very well organized, great instruction!

Greg Wells: I'm impressed with the new space! Nice work Chris and Cory.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Evolution Personal Training Studio: what do users think?


Nigel Williams: I signed up for Personal Training at Evolution shortly after I moved to DC. I am so glad that I did and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a serious and knowledgeable studio and team of professionals in the city. I worked out with 2 trainers (Jason H. and Patrick H.). While they had very different training styles they were both excellent and I saw progress and improvements in strength, stamina and endurance with both of them. Evolution is owned by Jack T. and he runs a very professional operation. All-in-all I couldn't recommend the studio more highly. The entire team of trainers is welcoming, unpretentious, knowledgeable and always focused on the client. If you are looking for serious training in a supportive environment, this is definitely the place for you.

Larry Gilstrap: If you are looking for intense, results-oriented, all-inclusive wellness training with a professional trainer, Evolution is for you. It is a training studio where clients work directly with personal trainers to achieve their goals and beyond using weight training, cardio, Pilates, and nutrition. The environment is friendly, supportive, encouraging, focused on fitness and not intimidating. It is truly a tremendous group of talented trainers and awesome clients of all ages. I have trained at Evolution for a few years now working initially with Jack Tisne and now with Joe Vancleve, both incredibly dedicated trainers. I also highly recommend Chris Coates for Pilates instruction. If this is what you’re looking for, give it a try. It is a rare find of dedicated and professional trainers working with motivated clients in a very warm and friendly environment.

Sam Feder: These trainers are the best. I have been lifting and doing weight training for more than 20 years, and I have never found a better group of trainers. They are very knowledgable, great motivators, and wonderful people. The gym is also an excellent facility, bringing together a very diverse group of people--all with different backgrounds and level of ability. I have been training here for almost two years and can't imagine going anywhere else.

Marjorie Bloom: For the past five years, I have worked with Joe VanCleve, an Evolution trainer, twice a week. Joe seems to have every conceivable credential in fitness training -- a BS in Kinesiology, a MS in Health Sciences and qualifications as a weightlifting performance coach among other credentials -- and he brings it all with his experience, high energy, good humor and good looks to every workout session. As a result of my work with Joe, my body is lean, toned and buff, and I have arms that never fail to attract attention. In fact, as I increase in age -- I'm 68 now -- my body seems to get younger! and I attribute it all to my work with Joe. Last October, I traveled to Nepal and trekked to Mt. Everest base camp which is 17,598 feet high. Before this trek, I only had hiked casually a few times and never at high altitudes but with Joe's training and guidance, I developed reserves of strength and endurance. Of course I was older than anyone else in the group, and although I trekked slowly, I never flagged, never became sick from the altitude and thrived on the challenge. I never could have done the trek without my work with Joe and his determination that I should have the physical fitness to complete the trek successfully. The only person who is more excited than I am about my success at Evolution is Joe. He invests all he has in every client, and he delights in the achievements that each one of us masters. For physical fitness, he has my unqualified vote!

David Michael: I've worked with Jacques for a few years now and he creates an incredibly supportive, motivational space to meet personal fitness goals. I started as someone who had trouble lifting at all due to joint issues and now move some serious numbers. He can accommodate different training goals and I strongly recommend him.

Miranda Weigler: Joe VanCleve and the guys at Evolution are the real deal. There is not a single time I went to see him that I didn't feel better afterwards. I was usually a good sore for a few days, but every day I got a little bit stronger. I love the diversity of the people they work with, and the interplay between pilates and power lifting. In a city like DC an authentic personal training experience is hard to come by, but these guys will keep you coming back despite the weather, your other commitments, no matter how much you don't want to workout that day. You will show up and you will be better for going from the inside out.

Michael Moore: This is it! A well staffed personal training facility with top notch trainers. For the past 4 years I have received the individual attention that I wasn't able to find at the other local gyms or Personal Training establishments. I cannot say enough good things about EVOLUTION.
