Rosslyn offers fitness studios to fit every style and budget
As we forge ahead into the post-holiday, New Year's resolution season, some of us may be looking to up our fitness game. Even if you're not a gym person, a fitness studio can be a great place to stay motivated during the colder months when a lot of us avoid exercising outdoors. Many Rosslyn fitness studios offer month-to-month plans so you can try them out without having to commit to a full year. Several also allow you to sign up for a free trial class before you decide if that particular studio is a fit for you. Read on for a complete listing and consider if one of these options might work for you:
New to Rosslyn in 2018, BASH Boxing offers group workouts combining boxing and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Their 45-minute classes help ensure participants burn maximum calories, build lean muscle and improve balance and agility. Workouts use water-filled Aqua training bags and top-of-the-line strength and conditioning equipment. First-timers can book a free class to try it out. When you're ready to sign up, BASH offers monthly memberships and class packs. Sign up for a free class or review membership options here.
CrossFit consists of constantly varied movements (e.g., pushing, pulling, squatting, lifting, running) executed at a high intensity. If it's your first time, you'll start with a consultation, and your first workout session will be free. Next, you can sign up for foundation/group classes where you'll learn the basics of CrossFit. These classes are not required but highly recommended for anyone new to CrossFit, even seasoned athletes. After you feel comfortable with the workout, you're ready to join their Workout of the Day (WOD) classes. Classes are scalable to meet your fitness needs. You'll also be able to enroll in personal training, which will also help you become familiar with the CrossFit movements. Monthly membership prices range from $94 (four classes per month) to $219 (unlimited classes per month). You can try out a free intro class by clicking here.
E60 Fitness opened in Rosslyn in June 2017. A high-intensity multi-functional workout class, Elevate 60, is their core offering. Elevate 60 covers several exercise disciplines including cardio intervals, strength training, and functional training in a single workout. The class is offered several times a day on a recurring schedule, but the exercises and stations within the class change daily so the workout is different every time. E60 Fitness uses wearable heart rate monitoring devices throughout their classes so participants can track their progress on screens throughout the studio in real-time. Their no-contract membership plans are affordable and flexible. Clients can also purchase packages of classes that are valid for a full year. In addition to group classes, E60 Fitness also offers personal training, couples training, and small group training. E60 currently offers a week of free classes. You can sign up for your free week here.
