New Crossfit gym opens at 12th and Upshur Street in Petworth

Upshur Street in southern Petworth is busy lately! I just got an email from the folks at CrossFit Petworth that they have opened at 1240 Upshur Street NW, right next to Annie's Ace Hardware. See below from more from them.

By my count this is at least the second new gym to open in the area, after Elevate on 14th near Clifton, plus seemingly new yoga studios all the time!
DC's Newest CrossFit gym, CrossFit Petworth, opened early September in the heart of DC's Petworth neighborhood.

Located at 1240 Upshur St NW, Crossfit Petworth shares the same building as the recently opened Annie's ACE Hardware store. At 9200 square feet, CrossFit Petworth is one of DC area's largest CrossFit gyms and is unusually large for a CF gym located in the city.

Thanks to it's size CrossFit Petworth will be able to offer more flexibility and variety of classes than most CrossFit gyms in DC. These include, in addition to regular CrossFit classes, Ladies only classes, Kids Classes, Open Gym access (at all hours) for members and classes for Seniors as well. The ability to hold multiple classes allows CF Petworth to bring new members up to speed in a gradual and controlled manner. These options help with anyone concerned or timid about jumping in and trying out CrossFit. CrossFit Petworth has worked to remove some of the barriers of entry to make starting CrossFit a little more accessible. Additionally the gym will be building a strength and Conditioning program to specifically work with local athletes at the High School and collegiate level. 

Quality of training is paramount at any CrossFit location. CrossFit Petworth's head coaches each have a minimum of 5 years experience coaching CrossFit, ensuring some of the highest quality training and safety for it's members.
