I wanted to post the following question: Does anyone know of any spin studios or gyms in northwest DC where classes are less than $25 each?”
Unrelated: This awesome photo came up while I was searching ‘spin’. Couldn’t keep it all to myself:

“On Saturday, June 3, MINT Gym and Studio is hosting a FREE outdoor bootcamp at Meridian Hill Park at 10:30 a.m., taught by our infamous Liz Harvey. It’s going to be a crazy and engaging “power playground” event that focuses on both strength and cardio. Sign up via this Eventbrite link, since the event is being held on National Park grounds and we must keep our records straight.”

Capitol Hill Yoga opened in 2009 at 641 Pennsylvania Ave, SE.
