A great neighborhood gym with a wonderful staff. Imani is a terrific and an engaging trainer - I've been working with her for over a year! The after hours access and overall clean facility makes this gym stand out from all the rest.

Small neighborhood gym with a huge heart! Great staff and super trainer Imani Brooks will encourage and motivate you to better health❤️ They know your name! No super fancy high tech equipment-but everything you need. I have been a member for many years and plan to continue.

Beside being a fantastic location - there aren't many boutique gyms in Cleveland Park, this foundation fitness has everything you'd need for free weight and cardio training. I've been going for a couple hours six days a week for some odd eight months and the staff are always incredibly friendly, and they'll always help you out if you've got questions or concerns. The staff do one on one PT pretty regularly and from what I've seen they all understand it quite well. Generally it was a wonderful experience, other gymgoers are all friendly and helpful and it was just a very comfortable environment.

I have been a member at this gym for a few months and I am very pleased with my experience. While on the small side, the facility is well maintained and equipped with everything needed to help you look and feel great. The staff is great and they are always happy to help or provide guidance during visits. Another plus is that the gym is conveniently located near the metro stop and the hours are flexible for anyone with a busy schedule. Special shoutout to Jenee, Imani, and Tony who are always welcoming and kind!

This gym is fantastic! I've been a member for about a decade. Everyone who works at FF Cleveland Park is friendly and professional. They know every members' name. I started training with Tony about six months ago - best trainer I've ever had. They absolutely helped me get through quarantine - not just because I could exercise, but because of the interpersonal, social atmosphere. Highly recommend.

If you live close to the Woodley/Cleveland area, Foundation Fitness is definitely the highest quality gym with the most convenient location!! They have a variety of equipments that can be used by both beginner and advanced lifters. Both the staff and the members are very respectful and keep all the equipment clean, which is a plus. The staff is super supportive and welcoming. They made the environment of the new gym feel very friendly and provided with any help that I needed! If you are in DC for a short time/internship, they will work with you!! Their summer deal saved me so much money!

Great local gym! I’ve been going here for personal training with Bryon for a while now and I’m so happy I made the decision to come.Bryon’s a great trainer and I really trust him. I was worried about starting a regular practice, but he’s encouraging without being pushy. And he’s always checking in to make sure I’m good and not overextending myself.The gym itself is accommodating and I’ve never felt uncomfortable working out. Everyone’s is nice, helpful to a fault, and knows what they’re doing. And even through COVID, I was never worried that I’d wouldn’t be safe as long as I followed guidelines.

Enormous shout out to trainers Imani and Tony! I was looking for extra fitness support for my son. Imani is also a fitness trainer however as a classic teammate handed me and my son over to Tony and he’s fantastic. Imani is equally as great!

This gym is truly great! They have all the popular equipment you’ll need and a great space to do your own thing. The staff is incredibly friendly and the space is always clean. If you’re looking for a low-key gym this is it. I feel super comfortable and they offer a variety of classes in your membership.

Love this boutique style gym! Been a member for a few years and the staff is always pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Clean gym and even an outdoor space for some socially distant fresh air workouts. Imani is my trainer and I’ve grown in strength, endurance and confidence since working out with her. Love her motivation. Keeps me on my toes. And always shares great tips for me to practice at home too. Def check it out if you’re in the area. Worth it!

I joined Foundation Fitness Cleveland Park right as the pandemic ended this year and it’s been an amazing experience working with my personal trainer Imani Brooks. I’m already feeling fitter, lifting better and it’s a fitness program not focused on losing pounds but actually gaining muscles and general well being. I highly recommend this gym for its great community vibe and fitness programs! Shout out to Tony for keep the energy high and making sure we’re all busting our fitness goals!

I love this gym! It is a small neighborhood place that is so welcoming and has all the equipment you will need at a much lower price than other DC gyms. Bonus that it is woman owned!

Foundation Fitness in Cleveland Park is the perfect neighborhood fitness center, no matter what neighborhood is yours (metro and parking right in front). There's lots of equipment. I always head to the nordic tracks and bikes (sometimes treadmills), and there are enough that I never have to wait for one. Baskets of free weights on the aerobic floor and in the weight room -- all sorts of stuff I dont know how to use. But, I have a feeling they're in my future. The staff is extremely helpful in showing you ... the ropes, and how to use equipment effectively and safely and also new exercises you might like. In fact, I have a whole routine now with free weights.I joined in the pandemic for their zoom classes - pilates, muscle fitness, and posture - and they have yoga and aerobics and lots of others, most of which are now both in person and on zoom.A great gym - but what makes it unique and a neighborhood gem is how friendly, accessible, expert, and nice the owner and staff are. This place feels like home to me now - and a special part of my life.

I've been coming here since around october of 2020 during the pandemic and it has felt incredibly safe. The staff is so welcoming and has made me feel like I am valued as one of their regulars. Limited hours but coming at random times has made workouts feel safe during the pandemic.

This is a really great neighborhood gym. They've done some awesome renovations over the last year, and the facilities (weight room, cardio machines, class area, locker rooms) are updated and clean. I highly recommend both the classes and the fitness space overall. Super responsive and friendly staff who always provide detailed information -- especially around COVID protocols.

This neighborhood "gem" is a microcosm of everything good about Cleveland Park. It's members are a blend of weight lifters, cardio workers, yogis, and interval trainers. The front desk greets everyone by name. And the diverse members are friendly and supportive. This has been esp evident during COVID - everyone adheres to safety protocols.

This is an excellent gym with friendly staff! The facility is relatively small, but the gym has everything that you need to have a good workout. The gym is always immaculately clean, COVID-19 procedures are followed by everyone, and its online people tracker allows you to see how many individuals are at the gym at any given time. During the pandemic, this is a great feature if you prefer to limit your exposure to others. The outdoor deck is a unique addition which allows you to workout outside, which is rare to find in cities. Highly recommend this gym!

This gym is great! All the staff are so friendly, and everything is clean and well-kept. The space itself is small, but they truly have all the equipment you need and I've never found it to be crowded. The outdoor deck is a unique feature and a nice space for workouts, weather permitting. I've also taken some great yoga classes here.

I signed up for this gym during the COVID-19 pandemic and I felt it was the best decision I've made. While this gym is small, it has all the basics, I love that there are COVID regulations in place to help prevent the spread of germs.99% of the costumers wear masks properly and that makes me feel safe. Sometimes you will see a person here and there wearing their mask under their nose which defeats the purpose of the mask but that happens rarely.I also love that their website has a people tracker which shows how many people are inside the gym. I tend to time my visits when there are less than 4 people.They also have an outdoor deck that you can workout on and they generally open the door so there is good airflow in the gym.Additionally, the staff are super kind, professional, and helpful.If you are looking for a gym and being mindful in these COVID times, I would totally recommend Foundation Fitness in Cleveland Park.

Inclusive, friendly and relaxed, with supportive helpful staff, it's exactly what every gym environment should aspire to be. Training with Imani twice a week has been amazing! She’s patient but firm and has pushed me to meet my goals. I've become stronger and more confident and motivated than ever because of her. This is the gym you didn’t know you needed.
