Plans for a rooftop deck featuring drinks and lite fare at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) has some near neighbors worried about  late-night noise and parking problems, according to the Northwest Current. The deck is part of an ongoing renovation that will end with the hotel being renamed “The Glover Park Hotel.”

The gym formerly known as Roam Fitness has rebranded as Urban Athletic Club, according to owner Graham King. The club, located inside the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.), made a splash in 2013 when it opened with outdoor fitness classes, but it also features a fully equipped indoor studio and classes. “While ‘Roam’ was a good name, it confused some people, as they didn’t know that we had an indoor facility that offered personal training and group classes,” King tells us.

515e43e8e4b0daad6e7c6a5eBalance Gym co-founder Graham King has a new venture at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.): Roam Fitness, an indoor/outdoor training gym. “Our motto, Fitness Without Boundaries, stems from the belief that health and wellness should not be confined to the four walls of a gym,” King tells us. “Our signature program ‘OutRun’ gets people out of the gym and into DC’s open spaces like Rock Creek Park, the Tow Path, Roosevelt Island, etc. We never take the same route, and we incorporate the obstacles we find along the way into the workout. For example, in a 4-mile run we will stop along the way for pushups, pullups, squats…and stump jumping.” Inside the hotel, a new gym facility features free weights and cardio machines as well as functional fitness equipment such as sandbags, hurdles, kettlebells, and gymnastic rings, King says.

Monthly gym memberships start at $50, and individual classes cost $25 each. But Roam Fitness is currently offering free trial memberships that last through the end of May and include unlimited classes. To sign up, click here.

On October 11, the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) will host a cocktail reception and fundraiser for Friends of Guy Mason, the nonprofit group that helps maintain the Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St.).

Although Guy Mason is a city-run facility, Friends of Guy Mason augments what the government’s stretched budget is able to provide. In the past, the group has maintained the center’s tree canopy and fragrance garden; installed new playground equipment; and led community cleanup days. “We promise to continue to be strong advocates for the interests of students, faculty, and guests inside the building as well as all the outdoor users,” writes FOGM president Dan Melman in a statement to Glover Parkers. “As we build upon our past successes, we ask you to support us in our efforts to steward and improve our local treasure. We cannot do it without you.”

The October 11 event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets cost $60 each and can be purchased at the Friends of Guy Mason website.
