“Dear PoPville,

The short of it is where oh where is a gym in NoMa/Eckington/Trinidad/H Street?

We live in NoMa and the one thing I have my fingers crossed for is a big gym (a la Results, Vida, Washington Sports Club). I have been hoping that a gym is in the works for one of the bigger spaces around Union Market but am yet to hear anything. The area it is a total black hole and it seems like a ripe market for a gym to move in given how much of the area is residential and how big some of the buildings/warehouses are. Do you know of anything? Heard even mention of it? While many of the new apartment buildings have their own gyms, for those of us in row houses or smaller buildings, there aren’t any great options within a 2 mile radius. Would love to hear your thoughts and reader thoughts…even better if you know of something that is being considered or throw around!”
