The Washington Sports Club in Clarendon is closing down for good later this month.
The gym at 2700-2800 Clarendon Blvd is slated to shutter its doors by June 30, staff told ARLnow today (Monday) after notifying members this weekend of its plans.
Gym manager Diamond Thompson said that memberships are transferable to chain’s other sports clubs.
Clarendon, however, is Washington Sports Club’s only location in Virginia, according to the franchise’s website. The company also operates six gyms in D.C. and three gyms in Maryland.
Thompson said he couldn’t comment on why the gym was closing. A spokesman for the company could not be reached in time for publication.
The gym is across the street from the ongoing Market Common Clarendon renovation project. Crews are turning the building into a four-story office retail development called The Loft which is expected to open by next summer.
High-end gym Equinox is reportedly planning to open at Market Common Clarendon, but so far few details about the plans have been revealed.
