If true this is going to devastate many fit folks. A reader with a very good scuttlebutt track record (pun intended) sends the sad word that they hear Results on Capitol Hill will soon be sold. It’s not clear if it will become another gym or what but in January we learned that the downtown Results Gym was becoming an LA Fitness. We’ll see if they or another gym take over the Capitol Hill space at 315 G Street, SE.
UPDATE from Results:
“We expected rumors to surface when we sold the Downtown location to LA Fitness. We have had little luck with that location over the years… Being that it was in the middle of Downtown, pretty inconvenient to residents, it was more of a “daily lunch-time crowd” environment. To keep things brief, our Capitol Hill location has always been a bit more successful, leaving us no choice but to fund the struggling locations just to keep them open… We certainly tried to make Downtown work, but the opportunity quickly presented itself to avoid 3 more years in a lease and take LA Fitness up on their offer.
Needless to say, we can start focusing all of our finances on one location. Being able to improve the facility and equipment has been one of the most difficult tasks with the financial burdens of other locations in the past, on-top of Results always offering convenient month-month plans with no annual contracts. Proud to say, new equipment and flooring are arriving little by little and bringing quality back to this immense facility
We are having some community events this summer, we will also be offering some community-based free fitcamps as well. We are extremely excited about our Olympic platforms, our redesign of our 3rd floor and our Life Fitness Synergy 360 coming soon!”
