From a press release:

“Off Road DC, a premiere Washington, D.C. fitness studio, is excited to announce that it will open a second studio at 637 Pennsylvania Ave SE.

Off Road’s second location will offer all three of its popular programs: BIKE, BOX, and BUILD in a 2000+ square foot space with 2 dedicated studios in the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood.

“As long time DC residents, we have always seen Capitol Hill as a quintessential DC neighborhood with the all of the flavor and character of this great city,” said Tammar Berger, co-owner of Off Road. “We are thrilled to be bringing our unique programming into an area that is as vibrant and exciting as Capitol Hill.“

Off Road is committed to providing real fitness for real people, and its owners believe that workouts and classes should be accessible for all. The pricing structure at Off Road makes it one of the most affordable boutique fitness destinations in the city. First time clients can get a week of unlimited workouts for $50. From there, classes run on a points system, starting at $12 for a 30-minute class.

Off Road offers three types of classes: BIKE, BOX, and BUILD.

BIKE30 and BIKE50 are not your average spin classes – expect real cycling with real power. Clients will ride on one of 30 Stages Indoor Cycling bikes, all equipped with VismoX software. Using VismoX, riders can track their specific results from each ride by integrating seamlessly with smartphones, as well as an in-studio screen, to provide insight into heart rate and power data.

BOX is a non-stop, knockout style boxing circuit workout. It incorporates alternating rounds of bagwork, footwork and padwork designed by professional fighters. BUILD coaches clients to increased endurance, strength and power in a class that uses TRX suspension straps, kettlebells and more to help build and tone muscle.

“Off Road’s signature small group high intensity interval training style and authentic cycling classes is something that we know will a great addition to the already active community.”

Off Road plans to open its doors on Capitol Hill later this fall with a ‘soft open’ and is planning a grand opening celebration in January 2017.”

    The owners are fantastic people and I couldn’t be happier for them! Great studio, and even though I don’t go much anymore (I ride outside instead), I try to get in for a few classes here and there.

    Off Road is a great studio with a wonderful community focus and the owners are amazing. Many congrats and success on the Cap Hill studio!

    Smart business move. Capitol Hill’s adding a lot more housing over the next few years, and there’s a huge demand for fitness classes (I gave up on Biker Barre years ago because you can’t get in their classes unless you sign up a couple weeks in advance).

      Adding housing where?

      • anon

        Above Trader Joe’s, for one.

    I love this studio, and the owners are such nice people. This is a great move for the neighborhood!

    cool concept. only wish it was further north, closer to the h street gym desert (except for yoga and crossfit, then it’s a gym paradise).

    • asf

    Hooray! I taught at Off Road starting when they opened in 2012 until I moved to Portland, OR in May. It is the best place I’ve ever taught fitness classes and I miss everything about it! Being part of that community made me a better coach/instructor in so many ways. I’m excited that DC is getting a second location!
