Whether you’re marathon training or just want to try something new while on vacation, there are plenty of gyms in the Georgetown area to keep you fit and focused during your stay.
This gym offers Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT) classes. Similar to military drills, each class alternates 45 second bursts of intense exercises such as squats with kettlebells or short sprints followed by 15 seconds of a recovery time. This approach keeps your metabolism rate high and is guaranteed to build strength and burn fat.
First class is free and all other classes are $32.
Yoga is a meditative, low-impact workout that tones and increases flexibility while bringing some serenity to your day. CorePower offers a wide range of classes from beginner Vinyasa to Yoga Sculpt, which incorporates free weights into poses for increased intensity.
