Physical fitness, like a well-tended garden, comes from hard work, proper hydration, and tackling rabbits after a high-speed chase. Harvest good health with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-month flagship membership plus unlimited tanning at Results Gym (a $102 value), with locations on Connecticut Avenue and G Street.
Results Gym invigorates bodies with state-of-the-art equipment and challenging group exercise classes within spacious, naturally lit surroundings. Headphone-ready cardio theaters allow bikers and runners to watch favorite channels or robotically intone the lyrics of commercial-free tunes. All locations offer a variety of group fitness classes, such as Pilates, Zumba, cycling, and abs, taught by motivational, friendly experts. The massive G Street location is outfitted with squash courts, an indoor rock-climbing wall, and inexpensive babysitting ($4/hour) to keep kiddies and lifelike stuffed animals occupied during sweat sessions. Space-age tanning beds are available in each locker room, providing a perfect hop-in point for post-perspiration pigmentation. After a quick toast, select from Results's fully stocked arsenal of toiletries to go from sweaty sultan to polished professional in clean, airy locker rooms with bath-towel service.
Exercisers spread throughout spacious workout areas at Results Gym which is as well known for their architecture as their athletic amenities, including choice of a dry or steam sauna, hot tub, and access to the latest in technologically advanced exercise equipment. In addition, massage-therapy, personal-training, nutrition-counseling services, and group fitness classes including cycling, yoga, Pilates, Chisel, Zumba, and karate are available. The 65,000 square-foot Capitol Hill location houses four international-sized squash courts, a full basketball and volleyball court, and a 38-foot climbing wall.
