Is your New Year’s resolution to get in shape or be healthier in 2014? You’re in luck – Capitol Hill offers a variety of gyms, fitness studios and healthy dining options for any budget.
Let us introduce you to our neighbors at Foundation Crossfit. The Crossfit workout regime will help you build muscle, get in tip top shape, and make friends that will last a lifetime.
CrossFit is a methodology that seeks to define what fitness is and how to achieve it. As it pertains to exercise, a common definition of fitness is being “physically sound; healthy.”
Digging further, we find that healthy is the condition of “possessing good health” — not much help when trying to quantify what it really means to be fit and healthy. Enter CrossFit. It uses continuously varied functional movements executed at a relatively high intensity to achieve it’s definition of fitness — increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains.

What Are Locals Saying?
I joined FCF in 2012 — and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my health and happiness.
The instructors at FCF are professional and engaging. They don’t make you feel like customers, but approach you with genuine interest in helping you become stronger — and make sure the path is customized for each person (read: You don’t have to be Dwayne Johnson to be working out here). They promote general active lifestyle, and there’s no fixed ideal that they pigeon hole you into. They teach you new skills, help you gain confidence and best of all, make sure you have fun. I always leave my class feeling accomplished, healthy and happy, regardless of how I felt when I walked in.
The new facility, FCF 4.0, is large, clean and is a big playground for crossfit enthusiasts. Lots of pull-up bars, rings to work on; rowers and airdyne to help you get your heart rate up the old fashioned way; a changing room and cubbies to store your things; and couches to relax before and after work out.
Finally, this place isn’t just about getting fit and living healthy, but meeting friendly and motivated people who will cheer you on during the most grueling burpee sessions, and then go out for drinks with you afterwards to have a blast. I’ve met so many great people at FCF and they make my classes that much more enjoyable. The people here, the instructors and athletes, are really the best reason to join FCF; because sometimes when I feel lazy, I get motivated to come in just so I can be a part of this wonderful community. If you need any more reason to join FCF other than the great facility, professional staff and awesome people, then consider this icing on your cross fit cake – the resident french bulldog mascot, Appa 🙂 Review Via Shelly J.
