Neighborhood Spotlight: Wellness Near Logan Circle

Destinations

Washington D.C. can be a high-pressure sort of place, which is exactly why it’s key to tap into the wellness side of the city the second you get here. Lucky for you, Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel is tucked right in the heart of Logan Circle, where everything from trendy workout classes to nutritional eateries surround the walkable neighborhood. Here’s a guide to all things wellness and wellbeing in Logan Circle, in Washington D.C.

Fresh Fitness

  • Cyclists will love the easy access to cult-favorite spin classes at both Zengo Cycle and SoulCycle. Zengo Cycle is the first fully-dedicated indoor cycling studio in the DC-area, and classes have a nightclub vibe with intimate dark rooms and black lights, thumping music and hand weights for muscle sculpting. SoulCycle has locations around the country and are known for their transformative classes.

  • If strength training is more your style, try DC’s own Cut Seven, a sleek studio where each fitness class focuses on working different muscle groups to the point of fatigue. Yes, it sounds a little crazy, but the skilled staff teaches you the proper way to help your body recover so you don’t hit any workout plateaus.
  • For the long and lean look, try a barre class at VIDA Fitness Logan Circle, where fluid exercises help perfect your posture and sculpt a dancer’s physique. Flow Yoga Center offers more than 90 classes a week at a variety of fitness levels, all designed to tone, stretch and de-stress.
  • For workouts you’ll recognize thanks to their locations all over the country, get into some afterburn at Orange Theory, stretch and strengthen muscles on a reformer machine at Fuse Pilates, or take an intense yet community-oriented CrossFit class at CrossFit MPH.
  • Not interested in a group workout? The Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel has a Peloton bike on property stocked with instructor-led video classes for a one-on-one cycling experience.

  • Sweetgreen is D.C’s favorite salad shop. Founded in 2007 at a tiny storefront in Georgetown, the company has expanded with locations across the country. They’ve added warm grain bowls and seasonal beverages, but their bread and butter (so to speak) will always be fresh salads with locally-sourced ingredients. They’ve recently reimagined their original location into The Tavern, a hyper-local market stocked with goods from over 30 vendors.

Zen Out

  • Getting a good night’s sleep while on the road can be tough—even little things like a familiar scent can do wonders for your peace of mind. Stop by local interiors shop Salt & Sundry for items like scented candles, loose leaf tea, bubble bath and sage smudges to help create a relaxing, peaceful vibe in your hotel room.
