About Balance Gym
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.
