Final WOD at District Crossfit NW

District Crossfit NW at 635 New York Ave NW will close its doors after its final WOD (workout of the day) tonight. Their landlord, Douglas Development, is intent on moving forward with redeveloping the block.

Please join us on the evening of Tuesday, November 26 for the final WOD at District CrossFit NW. As you all know DCFNW will unfortunately be closing in November, but we can’t send the ole’ girl out without a bang. Join us for a workout (and of course some refreshments) to celebrate the best damn gym this city has ever seen. ’The Final WOD’ will actually be any of the regularly scheduled Tuesday evening classes (5:30, 6:30 & 7:30), so pick the class of your liking and stick around to have a drink and trade a few stories.

District Crossfit opened in 2010 at 624 New York Ave NW. One year later they were displaced by the AAMC headquarters development and choose to relocate across the street to a much bigger space at 635 New York Ave. The membership of the gym rapidly grew and they responded by adding a second 10,000SF location at 1525 Half Street SW.

District Crossfit location on NY Ave to be displaced by development

In April we picked up the City Paper story that Douglas Development was beginning to make the rounds to the ANC about a proposed spec office building project on the 600 block of New York Ave NW. That office project continues to move forward and District Crossfit (presumably DC Eagle too) has been served notice of termination of their leases this fall.

The owners of the popular crossfit gym knew displacement was a possibility all along and have been seeking out a new location. Very recently District Crossfit signed a lease for 10,000 SF at 1525 Half Street SW. This will represent a massive expansion and triple the size of the current gym operations. The new location will offer over twice the amount of space for the regular group classes, have a dedicated space for individual workouts, and for the first time ever offer lockers and shower facilities.

District Crossfit's 635 NY Ave location to close this fall

I’ve been a member of District Crossfit for a year and have had great results. Despite the upgrades at the new location I’ll sorely miss the convenience of having the gym be 3 blocks away from my front door. Even gym owner Andrew Killion will have to make the commute from Mount Vernon Triangle to Southwest as he recently signed an apartment lease at City Vista.
