Northwest Sport & Health is the sort of facility where it’s possible to get a reasonably-priced workout in, without having to fight through long lines at machine stations, crowded classes or intimidating surroundings. The Tenleytown gym is filled with regular folks, each just trying to keep fit and trim using high-quality cardio and weight machines. For a more one-for-all approach, group fitness classes are also offered, including Zumba, yoga, Pilates and cardio kickboxing. There are also a number of six-week specialized fitness programs, along with personal training options from knowledgeable and trained staff. Spacious dressing rooms and convenience to the Metro are other pluses, and on-site childcare facilities make it a breeze for parents to work in some quick cardio.

4001 Brandywine St NW

City Fitness Gym promotes healthier lifestyles in a community environment with cardio and weight equipment, communal fitness classes, and personal-training sessions. The cardio area houses a cross-section of calorie-busting machines such as Life Fitness treadmills, a Versa Climber machine, and Concept II Rowers. A full free-weight room comes stocked with balance boards, medicine balls, and kettlebells, accompanied by weight machines to help clients add some definition to their frames.

A full schedule of classes, including Pilates, yoga and body-sculpting sessions as well as one-hour personal-training that helps clients map out their fitness goals without having to watching old VHS tapes of Pumping Iron.

3525 Connecticut Ave NW

Get off at the Dupont Circle Metro, walk a few blocks and then up to the fifth floor of a narrow building to stumble – panting – into Yoga District. Offering some of DC’s least expensive yoga classes, the studio is as basic as they come, with spare rooms that put changing stations, bathrooms and workout areas in close proximity. Still, the actual yoga space, while small, is clean, sun-filled and well-stocked with yoga accoutrements, and freelance teachers regularly come in to teach a range of disciplines, from vinyasa and restorative to yin and yogalates. Yoga District has five other studios around the city, each similar in philosophy and teaching methods.

1635 Connecticut Ave NW

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.

1339 Green Ct NW

When leading their classes, Meridian Yoga's certified instructors tap into backgrounds ranging from medicine to music, striving to unlock each student's potential for personal peace. They stand by a holistic approach to teaching, combining Hatha- and Vinyasa-style poses with meditation and workshops on several disciplines. That way, their students can better outline the myriad connections between their body, breath, mind, and robot control panels so that they can discover the best yoga methods for their long-term health.

2401 15th St NW

Ballet Teatro Internacional Dance Institute is a 501(c) 3 non-profit training facility created under a social entrepreneur model to generate revolutionary dance training programs for children, teenagers and adults interested in Dance as an art form, profession or as a physical activity.
