Thanks to a reader for sharing the word from BodySmith currently located at 1622 14th St, NW:
I have great news to share with you about the future of BodySmith! The day we’ve been working towards and dreaming of is finally here. I’m proud to announce that BodySmith Personal Training is growing and will be relocating only two doors away into the much larger AYT Auto space! We are extremely excited about the move and ready to transform the current BodySmith you’ve known and loved into a new and improved version of your neighborhood personal training studio + FULL SERVICE MEMBERSHIP GYM! We have great plans for the new space and will keep you updated throughout the process. While we won’t get into everything here, let me share some details of what you have to look forward to:
As always, it’s just trainers and clients in almost 5,000 sq ft of the same PRIVATE personal training studio you’ve come to expect from BodySmith
Over 7,000 sq ft of MEMBERSHIP GYM completely separate from the personal training studio
Over 5,000 sq ft of parking
Over 5,000 sq ft of rooftop that will be turfed for outdoor classes, seminars…and parties!
A mini café and fresh organic juice and smoothie bar
Top-of-the-line cardio equipment including Woodway Treadmills, stepmills, ellipticals, rowers, and Versa-Climbers
A pro shop with everything you need for a great gym experience.
Our scheduled opening will be Spring/Summer 2012, only a few short months away! In the meantime, we will remain in our current space while we complete the build out of our new home. Please keep your eyes open for emails and postings that will keep you informed of our progress and timelines.
