Break a Sweat at These New Fitness Studios
Several nearby boutique studios and gyms have recently popped up.
During a 45-minute class, members work through new cardio and strength moves every 30 to 45 seconds, with prompts from two trainers and demonstrations—hopefully performed by actor Mark Wahlberg, an investor in the Australia-based chain—on nine TV screens in the 2,500-square-foot space. Expect to build more than muscles, though; the gym pushes a strong sense of community, hosting monthly happy hours and classes designed to raise money for local charities, such as the Witt Black Music Foundation. Membership is $169/month for unlimited training. // 3865 Wilson Blvd., Arlington (Ballston); Additional locations at 2501 9th Road, Suite 65, Arlington (Columbia Pike) and 1101 S.
