“I saw this new dance studio on Georgia Ave when walking home the other day. I especially thought the kids summer camps can be useful for those in need of summer care. Ive seen lots of young families in the neighborhood (yay).”
“After months (well, years really) of planning, I am so excited to announce I will be leaving my job after 5 years and opening a yoga studio in Brookland (DC)! It’s a scary jump, but every time I pull up to the studio, I cannot contain my excitement. Located in a former craft store, the studio will maintain the creative vibe that is intrinsic to the neighborhood and my Artful Saturday events. Across the last decade, the yoga practice has been transformative in my life: keeping me grounded and calm, encouraging me to push my edge, connecting me with an incredible global community, teaching me patience and gratitude, and more. I hope to share my passion for many lineages of yoga and their individual benefits with this DC community. Please follow along as we transform a vibrant building into a vibrant community space.

“The Results Gym on Capitol Hill closed at midnight today. Worst day ever.”
Another reader emails:
“The end of an era. I am so saddened that Results is closing, any leads on new management?”
During the past six months, Results Gym has faced growing economic challenges to its continued operations including extreme pressures arising out of the uneconomic lease for its space on G Street. While management has worked diligently to address those challenges, it was unable to obtain terms from its landlord that would permit it to continue operating and the landlord has proceeded with eviction.
In light of this, we regret to inform you that Results Gym will discontinue operations effective March 15, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. At present, we do not know how Results Gym’s remaining assets will be allocated between its secured and unsecured creditors. As that process plays out, we hope to provide you with additional information.

“The next big thing in fitness is all in one box. Urban Adventures Companies, Inc. (UAC), the parent company of VIDA Fitness, unveiled plans today for SweatBox – a pioneering studio fitness concept that improves cardiovascular endurance while building lean muscle mass and improving flexibility. The SweatBox training method is based on the scientific principles of Heart Rate Training, resulting in a unique workout experience that combines aerobic and anaerobic intervals to achieve optimal performance levels within one 50-minute, high-intensity training period. Located at 1612 U Street, NW off the lobby of UAC’s flagship Fitness and Lifestyle Complex, the 1,725-square-foot studio space will feature a limited class size so each participant receives the personalized instruction needed for a technically superior workout, while maximizing gains and minimizing risk of injury.
UAC designed SweatBox to provide each participant with their own “box” – a raised platform furnished with dumbbells, TRX straps, and the revolutionary Matrix IC7 Coach by Color indoor cycle – ensuring individuals have access to everything they need all in one place. With a grand opening slated for April, Sweat Box is a one-of-a-kind, nonmember fitness-training program with a pay-per-session fee. (more…)
