Balance is doing a lot to keep the gym sanitized and is still offering classes outdoors with social distancing. Glad to be back at the gym!!

Foundation Fitness is an amazing gym! I have been training with Kimior for a month now, and the results are already amazing. He tailors the workouts to your own personal fitness and body goals, and his knowledge of health and fitness is extensive. He is also so nice and makes working out fun! I used to hate working out, but now I look forward to every Tuesday and Thursday that I get to go to Foundation Fitness.

I have been training with Kimior for a couple years on and off while at college and he is so great! Always willing to work with my goals, schedule (and college budget)! I have brought friends with me and will always recommend this gym to anyone looking.

Foundation fitness is an incredible training space and has totally transformed my life. I’ve always been a big gym goer, but my sessions with Ryan Blake totally changed the way I train, the way I relate to food and the shape of my body.If you want a stellar results go for the “Body by Blake” training experience. You’ll love to hate him and more to it love the results.

I've been coming here for 5 years. Ryan pushes me to my limit every time but keeps it fun too. He mixes up the exercises every week so it's always fresh. Depending on the time of day, you might be working beside another client and trainer or you might have the whole space to yourself.

Ryan is the trainer that I love to hate! He is incredibly knowledgeable about fitness and the human body and he is always pushing me to be as strong as I can be. He is patient when he needs to be and strict when he sees me slacking. I look forward to my workouts with Ryan. He has made me a better person and athlete. Thank you Ryan, Kimior and Foundation Fitness!

Foundation Fitness has a nice gym and great trainers. The sessions are 45 minute blocks with solo warmup before. They're just the right length and intensity.

I have been going to Foundation Fitness Georgetown for almost a year now. My daughter introduced me to her trainer Kimior because I wanted to lose weight and get in better shape. Foundation Fitness is clean and well equipped. Kimior is enthusiastic and motivating. My workouts are challenging and varied so I'm never bored. I've lost more than 50 lbs and look forward to my next session!

This place is GREAT! I hate exercising....and Patrick and Ryan keep me at it. I feel great after my workouts and have seen a marked difference in my stamina, energy, and over-all fitness. Ryan keeps me motivated to keep it up, especially on days when I'm not feeling up to it. The team has been more than accommodating of my schedule. After working out here it would be hard to go anywhere else.

Foundation Fitness is a game changer! I have been training with Kimior for over a year and have never had the same workout twice (not to mention never looked or felt better). He is awesome! All of the trainers are friendly, professional and so positive. It is a fun and welcoming environment and I see people of all fitness levels and abilities getting very personalized attention every week. I highly recommend the investment in yourself!

I really enjoy the boot camp sessions run by Kimior. I've been doing them for five years now and they keep me fit, both physically and mentally. They're fun too. Also, I just got one of the new FF "Raise the Bar" tee-shirts and love it. It's comfortable and very cool on these hot days.

I've been going to FF for the past 15 months and it's been transformative for me both mentally and physically. It's not a "gym" --it's a small personal training space. Kimior's (my trainer) guidance, training expertise, and the workouts he's designed for me have helped me overcome my resistance to training, made me much more disciplined mentally, and as a result I am stronger, and more focused, than I've ever been. I've rehabilitated my frozen shoulder. I'm learning what I need to do to gain more balance, elasticity, flexibility and strength. Kimior is so encouraging and has helped me develop a much healthier approach to taking care of myself, overall, discussing nutrition at length too. All the trainers are excellent as well as friendly (have friends who also go there). It was a great decision to commit to FF and focus on my health. So grateful I did. So grateful to FF!

This is a fantastic personal gym and Ryan Blake is a world class trainer. He is dedicated to ensuring you are using the correct form while creating challenging, fun, and always changing workouts. 45mins with him is never boring. He has created workouts to meet my needs, work with my triathlon training schedule, and accommodate minor injuries. I have increased my cardio capacity, strength, and ability to lift ever increasing weight safely. I have toned my body and remained strong. I highly recommend Ryan.

I have been going to Foundation Fitness on and off (I was going to school in California) for over a year and highly recommend! I have been training with Ryan who has been amazing in helping me achieve my health goals. His sessions are both fun and challenging. Additionally, I had very little experience working out and Ryan was always helpful when answering all my questions. If you or someone you know is looking for a trainer I would recommend coming in for a consultation at this location!

Highly recommended. Been working out 8 months at this location. I am now 25 pounds lighter, have 3-4% less body fat and am stronger than I’ve been in a very long time. Still have progress to make. Been training with Ryan for 4 months and he has been excellent. He has the right combo of challenging and risk-aware. The latter due to the fact that I’m in my early 50s and this can be more prone to injury than a 20 or 30-something. I particularly appreciate his constant reinforcement of the right form to use when doing any kind of weight training The location is always clean and orderly, All the staff are friendly and it feels like a genuine community.

A great class called Fat Burn with Kimior. Awesome conditioning and I loved the individual attention to form. Haven't felt so challenged for a long time. Hope to come back again with my husband. If you have 45 mins, I highly recommend this class at noon. Unique exercises and a well rounded circuit training. 470 calories in 53 minutes . yay!

Foundation fitness has been the sole reason I got back into fitness. It is an extraordinary gym that has exceeded all of my expectations. The staff is phenomenal and works with me/creates workouts that I enjoy but also push me to my goals. I have never felt stronger nor healthier than I have after working out at this gym. 10/10 recommended getting a membership here!

Me encanta este lugar, especialmente porque el personal es super agradable, con una actitud simpre positiva. Yo asisto a las clases en grupo y me fascinan porque me ha permitido conocer nuevas personas e intercambiar ideas en cuanto a ejercicios y alimentacion. Ademas cuenta con dos banos, regaderas, lockers, maquinas y todo lo mantienen siempre limpio. Lo super recomiendo.

I discovered this gym through class pass and am now a full time member. This gym is great! There’s parking, the equipment is nice, the bathrooms are stocked with toiletries, and there’s a nespresso machine. The boot camps and other classes are never overcrowded and I always get a good workout. Sometimes I even have the class to myself. It feels like personal training every time.

I’ve been working out with Ryan at FF since November. I’ve worked with other trainers at other gyms in the past, and it’s easy to say that FF has been the best of the best. Without being a drill sergeant, Ryan gets me to push myself, both with my workouts and nutrition. I feel stronger and more confident. Highly recommend.

Kimior is an excellent trainer! Every workout was different, the pace was upbeat, and I would continue seeing him but I am moving out of the state. I've been to several trainers over the years and one thing I really liked was the sense of accomplishment I felt at the end of each session. Everything was broken down and tackled in a manageable way and Kimior's positive enthusiastic attitude kept me motivated. Highly Recommend!

Great trainers and a great facility. The price is super reasonable, especially for a gym in Georgetown. As a student, I have been able to create goals, a workout schedule and price that work for me and I already feel stronger after just over a month. Their challenges (which win you free sessions) are also fun 🙂 Would definitely recommend!

I started working out at Foundation Fitness last April. My goal was to strengthen my core to feel stronger and so I don't get injured. After nearly a year, I feel stronger and more confident. The weight I can lift has nearly tripled since I started. I have worked out with a few different trainers, and while each is different, they have all been great—really focused on my goals and what I want to get out of the workout. I regularly work out with Ryan, who is constantly bringing new workouts to the table and is also excellent at helping with mobility and stretching.The gym is high energy but never over-crowded or filled with intimidating people. The general vibe is positive and upbeat. I've worked out at a few different large gyms in the DC area over the years. Working out at a personal training gym in a one-on-one setting is very different, and if you can swing it, I highly recommend trying it out.

I first visited Foundation Fitness through ClassPass and then got a membership because I liked it so much. The classes are designed for all levels and I promise you will get to challenge yourself in a fun(tastic) way. The trainers are very knowledgable, professional and motivated. It is one of those workouts that you look forward to already in the morning and throughout the day. And the best part is that I already feel and see the changes in my body after a few weeks of Bootcamp 😀

I joined Foundation Fitness only a couple of weeks ago but I'm already psyched. The way I feel about myself changed a lot because of the great workouts that I get there and the amazing support from all the trainers. I feel so much more comfortable working out with a professional than by myself. It feels great to have someone who answers all my questions about nutrition and puts together the perfect plan for me to achieve my goals. My motivation changed a lot and I really enjoy the time I spend at Foundation Fitness!

I have had a great experience at Foundation Fitness. The trainers are very knowledgeable and motivating, and I am very happy with the progress I have made.I definitely workout with better form and greater intensity there than when I worked out by myself at other gyms. I made little progress working out by myself, but since joining 18 months ago my strength has increased considerably and I have added about 26lbs of muscle.I selected Foundation Fitness at the recommendation of one of my good friends and would recommend their facilities and trainers to anyone interested in personal training.

I joined Foundation Fitness about 2 years ago after more than a decade of barely going to the gym at all. Before joining Foundation Fitness, several times over that period I joined big box gyms but I didn't haven't the discipline to workout consistently, and my diet was just awful. I knew that if I wanted to get truly fit again, I'd have to get some professional help in training and setting appropriate fitness goals (I'm in my mid 30's now), and starting eating properly.The guys at Foundation Fitness (Devon and Patrick) put me on the correct diet (calories target and macro-nutrient balance), and are crucial in keeping my form correct in the gym and keeping me motivated and working hard. Frankly, I can't imagine ever working out by myself again. This is the way to do it. Plus, you'll meet other like-minded people who are working just as hard as you to achieve their personal fitness goals.Whether you're just trying to get back to the great shape of your youth, or perhaps when you were a competitive athlete, Foundation Fitness will get you on track. Many of their staff are athletes/former athletes, and they know what it takes to get fit and avoid/take care of injuries as well, which is so important, especially as you age.As far as personal progress, in the first year I cut about 20 lbs. of fat and gained 10 lbs. of muscle. In my second year, the progress has continued. My diet is healthier than ever and I have so much more energy now day and night than I've had in the last 10+ years. This is really important to me since I have three small and very active children, and I can wear them out playing rather than the other way around. Just recently, my fitness has gotten to the point where I'm getting back to playing competitive tennis. This is only possible because of the diet, strength and fitness training programs at Foundation Fitness.

At Foundation Fitness I always get a great work out and am lifting significantly more weight than I have in the past and I have never gotten hurt. I've been working out here for three years and really enjoy the people and the workouts. My trainer, Devin, is top notch. He is excellent at figuring out the best exercises, he gives great practical nutrition advise and is a true stickler for form. I highly recommend this gym to anyone who seriously wants to get/ stay in shape.

Foundation Fitness Georgetown is terrific. The facilities are great, they have parking, and they let you use the gym even if you're not in a training session. All of the trainers there are incredibly friendly and professional. My husband and I do weekly training sessions with Devin, who has a terrific attitude, and the results speak for themselves! Best part of my week!

I've been working with Kimior for several months now. This has been my first experience with a personal trainer, and I'm shocked at what a difference it makes to work with someone as good as him. Although I've worked my entire life to stay fit, I am finally seeing the results I've been looking for. Kimior mixes it up constantly, keeping me interested and motivated while accommodating an old shoulder injury. He's incredibly flexible with his schedule, and responsive to texts and emails. Kimior has provided me with sound nutrition advice as well as suggestions for on-my-own workouts. I highly recommend him and his team at Foundation Fitness: great studio, great guy, great results.
