“it’s been a while since we’ve discussed gyms.”

Susanna asks:

“it’s been a while since we’ve discussed gyms. I know the big players are open, but any idea which smaller studios have opened back up (cycling classes, barre studios, other boutique classes)? Would love to know what is open/what’s permanently closed”

Some initial responses:

“There are some @zengocycle classes and also Pole Pressure (pole fitness) classes happening. The latter are reduced class sizes but inside and/or virtual”

“There are some open @soulcycleclasses at Union Market and in West End Bicycle”

“@AmbitiousAthl is open, hosting in-person and Zoom classes for its members. Also has an online self-guided program for those interested!”

“@TSNYDC is open! Holding classes outdoors when weather permits and indoors in a well-ventilated tent when it doesn’t.”

“N-Flux is open (self defense, group workout, yoga), there’s another small cycling studio in NoMa behind the REI on 2nd st that’s doing outdoor classes also”

“DuPont Circle Yoga is open with very limited and masked classes. All virtual classes from Georgetown yoga, yoga shala and DuPont circle yoga are streamlined into the DuPont circle yoga mindbody app now”

“We (@physicalityDC) are a bodyweight-based #fitness studio on #HStNE that currently offers classes both in-person & online. Masks & distancing are required the entire time. Our method focuses on #strength & #flexibility using #gymnastics, #calisthenics, joint prehab, & more.”

“I think @ElectionCycle on H st NE is doing spin classes outside”

“What I know of: CycleBar in NoMa is open. I think SoulCycle opened in West End + is doing Union Market. One of the former SC instructors has been doing classes at The Wharf (HustleDC). Flywheel’s closed permanently.”

“Fit360DC in MtP is open with outdoor, virtual and one on one”

“Sweat DC does boot camp/HIIT classes outside at Hook Hall in Park View. They’re great. Very safe and fun!”

“Orange Theory is open w/in person classes (temp checks, entry questionnaire, and masks required ..yes the entire class), and has digital classes on the app if you aren’t ready to come into a studio.”

“@solidcorestudio’s are open”

“Also there are former SoulCycle instructors doing Hustle at the Wharf (photo above), which is outside on weekends. It’s far superior to outdoor SoulCycle, because the SoulCycle location kind of sucks.”
