Thanks to Cameron for sending. This is in the new development with the Lululemon just south of U Street.

    I just started going to the Orange Theory in navy yard and I love it! It’s a super-tough workout, but it’s also fun and I’m surprised by how much I like it! My only gripe is that I made a point to buy their “special” pre-opening membership packages and was annoyed when I saw that those special prices were exactly the same as their regular prices.

      good to know! i’ve been thinking about trying this. thoughts if it would still be good for those of us who haven’t done a high intensity workout in years? do they modify? currently walking my dog several miles a day but i’d like to get a better workout in but am probably pretty out of shape.

        I’ve also recently started Orangetheory, and I also love it. They give you guidance, but it’s really you against you. On the treadmill, there are three different guidelines, split into power walkers, joggers, and runners. You set your own speed and go. You can modify as you see fit and go as fast or as slow as you want in any of the stations. Strongly recommend you try a class–they give you the first one for free so you can see if you like it.

      Second your comment on the “special” founder’s membership pricing. Not to mention that Navy Yard is already a “premium location,” aka more expensive than other OTF studios in the area.

        Pretty sure all the DC locations are “premium” locations.

    Isn’t there also an Orange Theory at 425 I Street in Mount Vernon Square?

    • womp

      yep, there is!

  • Carey

    This is the president’s favorite gym.

  • Anonynon

    how many boqitue fitness studios can one city really support? These places must just be making a fortune off their clients

    • Anon

      They are. I know several young women who pay upwards of $200/month for fitness classes (myself included). The classes are always filled and people are willing to spend their money on it.

    • Cleveland Park runner

      Plenty. My Orangetheory has a waitlist for every before work and after work class time two weeks in advance. And that includes a 5am class!

    • kate

      Sooo many. I would prefer to see more regular gyms with equipment you can use whenever, instead of these class-based fitness boutiques. But yeah, I spend about 200 a month on fitness and I’d actually like to be doing more, but I can’t afford it.

  • OtisMyHome

    The prices aren’t on the website- can someone give a sense of what they cost here? It looks like you can do 4 classes a month for $60 in “non premium” markets.

    • Kate

      It’s crazy expensive (and I say this as someone who loves group fitness classes). If you buy a monthly membership it comes out to $22-25 per class (depending on if you get 8x per month to unlimited). Class packs (10, 20, or 30) are the exact same price as the drop-in rate–$30 per class. Don’t get why they wouldn’t discount bulk purchases.

      • siz

        that’s so bizarre that there’s no discount for bulk class packs!

  • Beth

    Does anyone know when they expect to open?
