Best New Workout
1612 U St. NW No. 101, (202) 588-9252
A new workout that helps you get high-tech wrecked has debuted inside the U Street location of VIDA. SweatBox combines aspects of spinning, CrossFit, and TRX classes into an hour-long session that comes with measurable results since participants wear heart rate monitors. The instructor-guided class alternates between spinning on a bike that lights up different colors depending on how hard you’re working and time in your “box” where you move through exercises like TRX rows, squats, and every push-up variation on earth. Know that if you cross the finish line, an icy, eucalyptus-scented towel is your reward. The first class is free and you don’t have to be a VIDA member to sign-up.
