From an email:

Bluebird Sky Yoga will be opening at 3101 12th Street, NE (former SCRAP space -across from Brookland’s Finest) this fall.”

From Blue Bird’s facebook:

“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.

Update from the Hill East listserv:

“FYI – I called today to see if I could get more information. Their automated voice message confirms a Thursday 3/17 opening at 5 AM.”

Ed. Note: I called to – they’ll close at 11pm. Anyone know who the new peeps are?

Justin writes:

“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?”

From Results:

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.

Capitol Hill Corner reports:

“A post-midnight trip to Results revealed that a sign had been posted by “a neighbor” that the gym would re-open on Thursday under new management. That claim has not yet been confirmed.”

Stay tuned…

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.

FINAL PREVIEW

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…)

Back in January the New York Times reported:

“The first lady arrives without fuss or fanfare, although her armored sport utility vehicle and Secret Service detail set her apart from the usual Lululemon-clad throng.

Michelle Obama is here to work out. She has come to put on professional cycling shoes, clip in to a stationary bicycle and engage in the steamy, heart-pounding, candlelit fitness obsession known as SoulCycle.”
