WE MAKE FITNESS FUN
At Balance Gym, we inspire people to create balance within their lives by demonstrating how fitness can be fun and sustainable! Because we know ‘regular’ exercise can be boring we give you plenty to do with our sporting events, parties, and challenges. To top it off, we are partnered with DC Fray, DC’s premiere social sports society.
BALANCE WAS BORN IN DC
Balance Gym is a DC-born and bred business with humble beginnings: Balance began as a bootcamp space off a basketball court in Kalorama, where our founder Mark Crick dreamed of opening a gym to house the city’s very best trainers and a no-BS attitude toward fitness. Fifteen years later, Balance has four award-winning gyms in the Thomas Circle, Foggy Bottom, Glover Park, and Capitol Hill neighborhoods, and three award-winning CrossFit boxes. Our Glover Park location is also home to Balance Burn – one of only two Lagree fitness studios in DC, and the only one to feature the Megaformer MS3.
One thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to “train for sport, train for life.”
BALANCE FITNESS FACILITIES IN DC
Our four locations, Thomas Circle, Foggy Bottom, Glover Park, and Capitol Hill, have their own unique assets and features, but all maintain a fun vibe and provide a quality place to train hard–whatever your goals may be. In each location, Balance is proud of our exceptional personal trainers, most of whom have had a competitive sporting background and specialize in all aspects of the fitness industry.
CLASSES TO FIT YOUR SCHEDULE
Balance offers more than 100 classes per week! Try our signature Balance Bootcamp, Balance Body, and Balance Ride classes. Or traditional classes like yoga, barre, and Zumba. Experience our more unique offerings like pole dancing and PILOXING. Also, CrossFit Balance, led by Danielle Dionne, sent teams to the CrossFit Games in 2017 and 2018 – winning sixth place in 2018.
HOW BALANCE MAKES FITNESS FUN
Our community is important to us. Balance hosts hikes, rooftop parties, scavenger hunts, farm weekends, and many fitness events for our members. Since we try hard to create a non-judgmental environment, we know you’ll feel welcome here at Balance. We support local charities and sports teams, like the DC Eagles rugby team and the DC Strokes rowing club. Also, Balance has been a leading supporter of both Bike to the Beach and Cupid’s Undie Run for more than a decade. Because we care about equality, we participate in the Capital Pride Parade. We proudly partnered with the Women’s Strength Coalition to host the second annual Pull for Pride Deadlift Competition in support of Casa Ruby.
