This expansive and elegant fitness facility boasts a well-rounded array of equipment and group classes to ensure that each and every body part is worked out equally. Fort Washington teaches its Zumba, Pilates, pole fitness, and cycling classes in gleaming and spotless studio spaces, and the rooms of high-quality workout apparatus buzz with human-powered energy. Suit up for a month-long treadmill race on the specialized cardio equipment, get biceps bulging for upcoming cotillions by pumping iron in the free-weight area, or drop into a dozen or so group sweat-sessions for new friends and tandem exercise encouragement. A one-hour personal training session helps carve out contours according to each client's goals and abilities, based on a detailed consultation and assessment. All Fort Washington Fitness trainers hold national certifications from certifying organizations. The gym also offers daycare for an additional fee.
Fort Washington Fitness looks more like a Roman palazzo than a gym, decked out with polished floors, high ceilings, and a large water fountain in the lobby. Clean locker rooms de-sweat corpuses in cool-down mode with private showers, saunas, and steam rooms, and the professional and engaging staff address you by your actual name, unlike the mysterious, cowl-clad trainers at that last gym who referred to you as "Number 6."
