No Membership Fee at DC Fitness Centers in 2016

SOURCE: DC.gov


From Mayor Bowser: A Fitter DC

As part of FitDC’s effort to encourage residents to stay fit, I have directed the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) to waive resident fees at DPR Fitness Centers starting on January 1. Previously, the fitness centers required a paid membership for access, but for 2016, those resident fees will be waived. DPR Fitness Centers offer a variety of exercise equipment, including ellipticals, stationary bikes, treadmills, free weights, universal weight machines and more! Visit DPR’s website to find a fitness center near you – we look forward to seeing you there!
