For half a century, Adelphi Pool has served as a summertime destination for local families. Surrounded by trees and rolling hills, visitors lounge on the hill that overlooks the giant pool or head down to the deck to grab a chair and recline under an umbrella. The private facility features an Olympic-sized lap pool, 11-foot deep-diving well, and water slide, along with a fenced-in 30'x30' wading pool for little ones and people terrified of pool sharks. There's also a newly built bathhouse that features a snack bar, handicap-accessible locker rooms, and showers. To shake up summer weeks, the facility hosts evening events specifically geared toward families, teens, and pre-teens.
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.
High-energy beats from artists such as Flo Rida, B.o.B., and the Black Eyed Peas bounce forth from the spinning studio at Rock Creek Sports Club, where nationally certified trainers lead stationary cyclists through challenging routes. In addition to these pop-powered workouts, the studio hosts more than 50 other fitness classes, an array of options that prompted the editors of Bethesda Magazine to name the studio 2012’s Best Neighborhood Gym. Zumba classes encourage students to boogie away calories to latin beats, and boxing clinics incorporate one-on-one attention from Golden Glove winner Russell Davis. The team of trainers can also coach visitors through the weight-loss process, or helm small group workout sessions capped at eight participants. The gym also welcomes independent workouts, with equipment such as treadmills, benches, and weights awaiting a few breathless reps of their own.
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.
Jason Schreiber dedicated years of his life to staying in peak physical condition by training in mixed martial arts, competing in amateur power-lifting competitions, and earning a degree in kinesiology. He relies on this combination of education and experience when teaching men and women of virtually any age and fitness level how to use kettlebells, spherical cast-iron weights with handles. Jason teaches proper technique as students safely perform the swinging and lifting motions that characterize kettlebell workouts, encouraging students to push themselves with heavier weights. He believes that these exercises not only build muscle mass and definition over time, but they also provide a more engaging cardiovascular workout than swimming laps through a pool of molasses.
