Sorry I haven't checked this thread in AGES. Time is flying!

To Political-DC: Results Gym at Farragut North (their "downtown" site) has an "endless pool," suitable for one person, or one person plus maybe a friend. The pool has a speed-adjustable underwater TREADMILL, which I really like. The gym also has *separate* saunas and steam rooms (and showers) for women and for men.

Hope this info helps.

I am a fan of Crunch Fitness.. they have two gyms in DC and I love that I can pay $40/month and I get a chance to take all of the classes that I love. The classes that they offer are a lot of fun and I find that it enhances my overall gym experience being able to take these classes and participate in a new level of intensity for my workouts.

Results, the Gym. "Downtown" location at Farragut North Metro, Conn. & L Sts, NW.

They're also at "Capitol Hill" location, near Navy Yard, SE. Eastern Mkt Metro.

They're definitely worth a look-see and a try-out visit.

(Having a problem adding the link!)

I like Golds Gym. It has a Cinema room which makes staying on the elliptical way easier for me. They have great spin classes and a woman's workout area. It's affordable and it has everything I need.

I like gyms with swimming pools. But two of them I went to make you go up long steps or there is no parking. I am a school teacher and you can forget lunch time. You are on duty 24-7 in a school. I wish I could find a gym that was on first level with parking. Maybe East Capital.

Well - I love gyms with fitness classes that push me to my limit and that have a row of machines that offer you a total toning workout without the thinking. Best for me are Balance Gym and Washington Spots Club. Both cater to the working woman and man lunch workout crowd with towel service, shampoos, conditioners and body wash in stalls.

It's not just in some of us; its in all of us."
