The big gym news continues. Following word of Rumble likely opening their first D.C. space in April and an Orange Gym coming to 14th Street near Arepa Zone and Balance Gym comes news of another Orange Gym location – and this one in a long vacant space in Cleveland Park!! Last Friday we spoke about all the vacant spaces that we couldn’t believe were still vacant. (more…)

A reader reports:
“I happened to run into construction workers building the Rumble Boxing Gym location on M Street who said it SHOULD be open mid-April.”
“Rumble is here for the people, who put in work and want to have some fun in the process…whether you are searching for a strong body, lean legs, toned abs, a mean uppercut, or to find your confidence. (more…)

Techworld!! I worked here way back in the day in my previous life and I feel like there used to be a gym here – anyone remember which gym that was or am I losing my mind? Ed. Note: I realize that is not mutually exclusive. Anyway, thanks to Bry for sending the news that an Equinox is coming!
Thanks to Rachel for sending:
“I noticed at 506 K Street NW (Across from the Giant) in Mt. Vernon, there was new gym/training place opened called EPIC. I called and it is their grand opening this week and they’re offering $1 classes until 2/4/2019 when you register on their website (It’s the last option when you pick the class you want to attend)
Looks like a fun atmosphere for people who don’t enjoy regular gyms.”

From the Office of the Attorney General:
“Attorney General Karl A. Racine today filed a lawsuit against Town Sports International (TSI), LLC, the operators of Washington Sports Clubs, over its deceptive cancellation and billing practices. The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) alleges that TSI is violating both consumer protection laws and a 2016 settlement agreement by misleading consumers about the terms of membership agreements, failing to inform them of the gym’s cancellation policies, and continuing to charge them even after they attempt to cancel their gym memberships, among other deceptive business practices. OAG is seeking to stop TSI’s illegal conduct, provide relief for consumers who were harmed, and impose civil penalties. (more…)
This message is both a public service announcement/reminder and a plea from a fellow PoPville community member and yogi. A classmate and I had our wallets stolen tonight during an evening class at 405 Yoga Studio on Florida Ave NE. The three thieves were a bit suspicious from the start by the way they were acting. All three came late, weren’t able to pay up front for the class and had accounts set up with contact information in North Carolina (which we found out after class when the police looked into their registration). About ten minutes into class the three individuals left the class (told the front desk attendant something about not liking the class), gathered their belongings and left. Their belongings also included two wallets which were not theirs. The two of us discovered our wallets were missing promptly after the class ended when we noticed our purses were lighter and fraud alerts already on our phones from credit card companies. Both of us had charges placed at CVS locations in NW DC in the amounts of $495 – $500 (in total thousands of dollars) for what has been described as gift cards by the CVS police reports filed. One additional charge was attempted tonight from a different pharmacy in Oxon Hill Maryland. (more…)
