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.
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.
Pre-sale membership sign-ups are expected to begin at the Clarendon location in late July.
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.
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.
