Sticks and stones may break some bones, but not if they?re directed toward one of Capital MMA & Elite Fitness?s students. In a team-oriented environment, the studio?s instructors teach key mixed-martial-arts moves such as grappling, striking, and wrestling and supplement the training with classes in specific fighting styles, such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai. Guests looking for a practical crash course in self-defense learn snippets from each technique in self-defense classes, learning methods for staying aware of surroundings, fending off attackers, and freeing themselves from the grip of King Kongs. Some women-only classes are also available.

The studio's CrossFit program, alternatively, boosts athleticism without combat, through a multi-faceted regimen of Olympic weightlifting, cardio exercise, and custom diets.

Founder Bertha Cross brings industry expertise to Fitness Heights International from several angles: she is a seasoned marathon runner, a sports nutritionist, a business consultant, and an exercise instructor, among other titles. Her drive to inspire long-term lifestyle changes in clients led her to enlist trainers for multiple programs, all of which are accessible to students of every fitness level. Boot camps drill muscles with a variety of strength and agility routines, and running groups take jogs past DC landmarks, pausing to try to get the Lincoln Memorial in on games of duck duck goose. Innovative dance classes mix Zumba steps with reggae beats and lead feet through Bollywood choreography.

Ultimately, each regimen strives to forge a sense of community and support, a goal that also permeates the business's tropical fitness retreats and annual race events. The majority of meet ups takes place outdoors, facilitating breaths of fresh air and fitness tips from friendly squirrels.

The dance floor at Roda Movements sizzles with the dance and martial-arts forms of Brazil and Latin America. In capoeira classes, students gather in a circle playing drums, the single-stringed berimbau, and the tambourine, taking turns moving to the center to perform acrobatic movements that blend sparring techniques with graceful sweeping motions of the native dance style. Brazilian jiujitsu teaches grappling techniques for fighting on the ground, and Zumba sets a calorie-blasting aerobic-dance routine to Latin rhythms. The ballroom styles of salsa teach quick-paced steps to guests dancing solo, in pairs, or with a musically inclined mop. In addition to Latin dance and martial-arts classes, patrons can build muscles while whittling their waistlines in yoga and African-dance classes. Also catering to the wee ones, kids-only versions of specific classes helped Roda Movements earn a Best of the Best award from the Takoma Voice.

The trainers at Push Fitness are single-minded in their goal to help students trim inches, tone muscle, and feel confident in whatever they wear. During each session, students undergo high-intensity routines combining cardio training with strength and resistance exercises. Each routine is designed to burn the maximum amount of fat and targets common trouble zones, including the waist, hips, back, and thighs. Further inspiring patrons to develop healthful habits, the trainers treat them to optional bi-weekly weigh ins and body-fat measurements, along with encouraging them to follow nutritional advice and adhere to comprehensive custom meal plans. Their approach focuses on meals made up of lean meats, vegetables, and fruits, eschewing excessive sugar, salt, and bacon-wrapped donuts deep fried in bacon-wrapped-donut fat.
