Locally owned and operated DC gym, focused on serving the Nation’s Capital with the area’s most comprehensive and innovative approach to fitness, sports, and healthy lifestyle pursuits — for clients of all ages and activity levels.

Walk into any Balance Gym and you’ll instantly notice it’s a world that appreciates that fitness is not “one-size-fits-all.” Here at Balance we believe that coming to the gym should be the best part of your day and to do that we offer a wide variety of training options from boxing and CrossFit to Zumba and yoga. This energy is then deepened by our interchanging classes, music, trainers, equipment — and by most of all —our tight-knit community.

Our gyms also use their surroundings to their fullest, training outside as much an in, from burpees at the Washington Monument to running through Rock Creek Park. And the fun doesn’t end there. If ski resorts have après ski, Balance has après sweat. Our members and staff frequently join together on weekends and after work for hikes up Old Rag, inner-tubing down the Potomac, biking to the beach — and even happy hours sprinkled in from time-to-time.

Balance is the gym that combines the best of what makes training and athletic clubs special, without the frills that drive up costs and take away from true fitness.

This page represents all three Balance Gym locations. Kalorama, Thomas Circle, and Glover Park.

Balance Gym ROCKS! If you want to train free from the fussy, “see and be seen” attitude that permeates many area gyms, this is the place to be. The facility is open and airy, with an awesome roof deck, several class spaces and a separate CrossFit studio. The staff is friendly (SO rare in DC gyms) and the trainers know their stuff! They’re also helpful, fun, and incredibly motivating (shout out to AC, Ben, and Andrew). I’ve never experienced a gym where the staff is so invested in their clients. They’re not just about collecting your monthly dues. They’re about getting you into the gym, getting you moving, and helping you achieve your fitness goals.

I started working out at Balance Gym in Kalorama location when they first opened. They taught me everything I know about working out. Before I would fiddle around with light weights and bore myself with the tedium of cardio machines. After trying their bootcamps and doing some personal training, I completely changed my routine for the better. When they opened up in Thomas Circle, I started going to their lunch-time boot camp. The instructors are knowledgable, positive and encouraging. The quality of their classes is what make this place such a steal. They also have a boxing ring, which I haven't tried, but it looks like a lot of fun.

Easily the best gym in the city, reasonably priced and a great workout atmosphere - nice but not fancy, lots of people serious about fitness. Ive gotten some of my best training advice from staff there, Michael, Stacy, Aesha and others.

I've been working out fairly consistently since high school, and Balance Gym is by far the best gym I've ever belonged to. The equipment is great, the facilities are clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Two years ago I was in the middle of cancer treatments for Lymphoma. When my treatments were done, due to the meds and all the inactivity I was in the worst physical shape of my life. With help from Cali on training, nutrition help from Melissa, and all the encouragement from Mark, Tony, and Stacy I'm back to being in the best shape of my life. Give 'em a shot - you won't be sorry!

After moving to DC 3 years ago, Balance was the first place I felt comfortable and a "good fit" for me! It is great because it is big enough to provide lots of different workout equipment, personal training and a variety of classes, but small enough where everybody know your name and provides fabulous encouragement. For someone that has struggled with weight and staying fit and healthy, Balance has been amazing in helping me start to reach my goals! I do personal training with Ben and also try other classes. I have been a member at other gyms in DC, and have neve been happier as I am with Balance. It is affordable and worth every penny! There are a variety of different ages and workout abilities. The personnel at Balance are able to accomodate everybody! It is awesome!

I started out training in a gym with reverence for the lifting. No music, only the sound of weights clanking. The Gym trainers here are just as committed, yet the experience of the place is A LOT more fun. Most importantly, it's a better work out than I used to get back then. It's excellent.
