Clarendon is slated to get a new gym by the end of the month.
Orangetheory Fitness will officially open its doors at 3001 Washington Blvd on Oct. 30, according to franchise owner Mark Steverson.
“We’re excited. This is our fourth location in Arlington County,” Steverson said. The company currently has gyms in Ballston and Rosslyn and Pentagon City.
To help promote the new fitness center, Orangetheory will offer special “founding member” pricing and a free week of classes from Oct 22-29. The gym will also host a grand opening party with freebies and vendors on Oct. 29, Steverson added.
Orangetheory specializes in one-hour group workouts where exercisers row, run and lift weights to boost their endurance and strength. Each participant wears a heart rate monitor during the workout to maximize calorie burn.
Those looking to sign up for a free class or get more information about membership packages can contact the gym by phone at 202-868-6767 or by email.
The fourth Arlington location of Orangetheory Fitness is coming to Clarendon in early October.
Store manger Alex Shabo said that opening in October “is our game plan right now, it all depends on how construction goes.”
The gym will be located at 3001 Washington Blvd, in the ground floor of the building.
Orangetheory specializes in one hour group interval workouts that are half cardio endurance and half strength and power. The workouts use a combination of rowing machines, treadmills, free weights and a suspension system. Each participant wears a heart rate monitor during the workout to maximize calorie burn.
The company has existing locations include Ballston and Rosslyn. A Pentagon City location will be opening in August.
Pre-sale membership sign-ups are expected to begin at the Clarendon location in late July.
Trendy salad purveyor Sweetgreen and trendy sweat producer Orangetheory Fitness are both coming to Pentagon City, permit applications show.
The businesses are coming to the ground floor of The Acadia at Metropolitan Park apartment building. That the same building in which a CorePower Yoga studio just opened.
Sweetgreen applied for its construction permit on the 12th Street S. side of the building on Feb. 24. Orangetheory applied for a permit on the S. Fern Street side of the building on April 1.
Also coming to the building: a European Wax Center location. And, according to a retail leasing document, a thus-far unnamed coffee shop.
Orangetheory has existing Arlington locations in Rosslyn and Ballston. Sweetgreen recently opened in Crystal City and also has a Ballston location. European Wax Center has a location in Courthouse.
The 12th Street extension between S. Eads and Fern streets is rapidly becoming a powerhouse retail corridor, even though it’s a block from an existing, expanding retail hub: the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City mall. A Whole Foods and a Commonwealth Joe coffee shop will be opening this summer on 12th Street S., at The Bartlett apartment building.
