Balance Gym’s marketing annex at 2241 Wisconsin is up and running: running straight for members of Washington Sports Club next door at 2251 Wisconsin. Though Balance owner Graham King had told us the new storefront would be used to promote spa services—”(massages/facials/sauna/steam/etc)”—at SomaSpa, which shares Balance’s 2121 Wisconsin location, a Balance tout spent this morning handing out cards flogging the gym’s new membership deal: $59/month if you sign up by June 30. (There’s also a onetime initiation fee of $99, but it’s credited towards personal training or spa services.)
Meanwhile, a whiteboard in WSC’s lobby announces discounts that gym has negotiated for its members with local merchants. With your WSC member barcode, you’ll get the following deals:
- 15% off meals at Kavanagh’s at 2400 Wisconsin;
- 50% off games and 10% off food and drink at Breadsoda at 2233 Wisconsin;
- 15% off services at Hair Lounge at 2201 Wisconsin;
- 15% off hair services on your first visit to Elite for Hair at 2315 Wisconsin; and
- $6.45 games and free shoes on Tuesdays at Strike Bowling Alley at 5353 Westbard Avenue in Bethesda.
