Balance Gym (2121 Wisconsin Ave.) is undergoing a renovation that will enlarge the gym’s weight training area, add a group exercise studio, and double the size of the space devoted to CrossFit Glover Park. The redo will also add indoor access to the gym’s lower-level workout area, which is now accessible only from outdoors. Space for the renovation will come from taking over two vacant office spaces.

The construction is expected to last for two months, but club management anticipates minimal disruption for members during that time. “Most of the work will be completed on our newly acquired space, with very little impact on the existing club during construction,” explains CrossFit director Emily Baskin.

From the February 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The gym formerly known as Roam Fitness has rebranded as Urban Athletic Club, according to owner Graham King.
