Xsport Fitness on Columbia Pike is closing next month

Xsport Fitness is closing its Columbia Pike location on December 15.

A flyer posted on the door of the gym at 2301 Columbia Pike provides confirmation, while noting that “we have outgrown this location!”

While that message seems to suggest that the gym is moving to another location, that does not appear to be the case, at least, as of yet.

ARLnow called the gym and an employee said that the staff was “just as shocked as everyone else” about the closure. They noted all memberships are transferable to other regional locations, including Alexandria, Merrifield, and Woodbridge.

The flyer also says that Arlington members get a “membership upgrade” that’s valued at $200 a year, but employees said that they themselves are not exactly clear what that means.

The location’s general manager also could not provide any more details about why the gym was closing or any relocation efforts.

ARLnow was reached out to Xsport Fitness’s corporate office, but has yet to hear back as of publication.

A decade ago, the gym opened on Columbia Pike as a 24-hour facility. Then, in March 2020, many gyms closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. While gyms were allowed to reopen in the summer, there were significant restrictions. Xsport Fitness reopened, but never moved back to being 24 hours.

ARLnow reached out to to the building owner to see if another business is moving in and leasing the space but has not yet heard received a response.
