In January, I discussed a WBJ report about Vida Fitness's plan to open a gym in the Renaissance Hotel, which is just south of the Convention Center and Carnegie Library at 9th and K Streets. I've heard very little about the plan since then and have seen no signs of progress regarding a Vida opening up on our southern border.
Today, however, I received an email from Vida that included a blurb about this new location. According to their most recent press release, the "VIDA @ The Renaissance Hotel" will open in November. It will be 10,000 square feet with state-of-the-art strength training and cardio equipment. Wellness services will include VIDA's Zen Spa with Endless Pool and European steam and sauna rooms. Luxuriously appointed locker rooms will feature complimentary towel service and optional laundry service. Their high-end spa will have 4 full treatment rooms and a full array of available services.
Special memberships are now available; if you join now, you can workout at VIDA Verizon Center until the Renaissance Club opens.
