Best Gym Shower Area
824 9th St. NW, (202) 684-7208
In comparison to the gym bathrooms of my youth, where the soap dispensers were perpetually empty and everyone was naked, the locker rooms at indoor cycling gym Flywheel are basically a spa. They resemble something you’d see on HGTV: shelves piled high with warm towels that cover your whole body and frosted glass stall doors that allow you plenty of privacy without making you feel like you’re locked in a box. Lemon-scented shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion come from Bliss, and glass containers filled with cotton swabs, hair ties, and bobby pins sit on seemingly every surface. Want to refresh your post-workout hair with dry shampoo? They’ve got that. Need a hair dryer? They’ve got two. The most thoughtful detail, though, is the aerosol deodorant, for those among us who always forget to pack it in our bags.
