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.

To the fitness experts who run The P Spot Fitness Studio, pole dancing is much more than an art of seduction—it’s a means to a healthier mind, body, and spirit. Within their 2,000-square-foot space, instructors use the discipline’s sultry swings, dips, and lifts to sculpt tight physiques in pole fitness classes. They also deploy fast-paced aerobics and exotic dance moves in Hot in Heels classes, getting blood pumping without screaming “Fire!” into IV drips. But lifestyle makeovers don’t end after class; a full slate of health services such as nutritional counseling, weight-loss camps, and a boot-camp getaway in the Caribbean weaves wellness into all aspects of life.

Balance Gym really is about balance—a balance between strength and stamina, individual and group workouts, and indoor and outdoor exercise. While some classes take place in well-appointed fitness studios, others involve running through Rock Creek Park, doing burpees at the Washington Monument, or deadlifting the Lincoln Memorial. With so many options for getting into shape, it's no wonder the gym was named DC's best by Washington City Paper. If you favor a more intense workout, check out the hugely popular CrossFit program, which blends gymnastics, Olympic lifting, and intense conditioning into a calorie-torching cocktail.
