The new Sweetgreen at 2200 Wisconsin Ave. seems to be serving its salads and fro-yo today, according to a tipster.
Meanwhile, a “for lease” sign has gone up in the basement space in the same building, which BodySmith had told us they’d be moving back into after a side door was constructed. “A week or so ago, at night the equipment and flooring were removed,” another tipster emailed us. (We work long hours across town! We love our tipsters.) “Tonight, there is a ‘For Lease’ sign on the W Street door to the BodySmith space advertising space ideal for retail showroom or personal fitness.” A representative for BodySmith confirmed to us that the gym will not be returning to Glover Park.

We’re hearing that 2200 Wisconsin Ave.—home to BodySmith Training Gym and, since last fall, to large “for rent” banners as well—may soon welcome local fro-yo-and-salad chain Sweetgreen. Nic Jammet, Sweetgreen’s co-owner, confirmed last week to City Paper that he expects to open a Glover Park location, though he added that no papers had yet been signed.
According to one source, the plan is for BodySmith to retain gym space in the building’s basement via a separate entrance, while Sweetgreen inhabits the glass-fronted retail space above.
Neither Jammet nor the owner of BodySmith responded to requests for comment.
UPDATE: A member of the Glover Park listserv writes, “It seems that Sweetgreen is coming at the expense of yoga and boot camp classes at Body+Smith😦 Body+Smith is closing their front studio space effective Tuesday [July 31] to give the entire space over to Sweetgreen. They will also be creating a side entrance on W Place for their training and spa clients.”
Until the end of 2012, you can pay $59 at BodySmith (2200 Wisconsin Ave.) and get a one-month pass for as many yoga classes as you can handle. If you’d just like to dip your toe in the water, the gym is also currently offering another special: 10 days of classes for $10. BodySmith’s regular rate for unlimited classes is $99 per month.

From the March 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Sometime on the afternoon of January 14, someone stole $240 in cash from the till at BodySmith (2200 Wisconsin Ave.), according to a police report. And on February 1 at around 9 p.m., a man entered CVS (2226 Wisconsin Ave.) and stole four containers of deodorant, a police report stated. He fled southbound on Wisconsin Ave. There were no suspects in either case, police sources said.
From the October 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
BodySmith (2300 Wisconsin Ave.) is staying put, despite a “for rent” sign outside the gym. When the sign appeared, neighbors wondered whether the personal-training facility were planning a move, but a staffer there tells us the sign refers to office space for rent upstairs from the workout space. “We’re staying. We’re here,” he assures.
