I love the welcoming atmosphere of this gym. My trainer Jill is absolutely amazing. She offers plenty of insight on both fitness and healthy eating. Before I started here, I was in so much pain every day due to previous knee surgeries and was having trouble doing typical tasks and working my job. Thanks to Jill, I am able to move better, have more balance and am in way less pain. I’m so thankful to all the support that I have found at this gym! I highly recommend!

I just started working with Angelo at Foundation Fitness in Annandale at the beginning of January. I am an experienced lifter and former trainer who got busy with work and life and just need to get started again. Angelo and Patrick did a great job at the initial consult of assessing my current fitness level, strength, flexibility and overall ability. They asked really good questions about my goals, habits, past experience, injuries, etc....it has become VERY evident in the follow up workouts that THEY WERE LISTENING!The workouts are tailored to me. Angelo knows how to push and keeps the goals at the forefront of workouts. He's encouraging, the workouts are challenging and never tedious and I love the environment. He and Steven Bybee are jokers that make everyone in the gym know that they belong there.While it's too soon for major obvious changes to the physique, the mental benefits of getting in the gym have already carried over to less stress/anxiety, better sleep, more motivation, and I catch myself just looking forward to the next session! I appreciate these guys so much and highly recommend Foundation Fitness at Annandale!

I think you can go to just about any gym to work out. But if you want to go to a gym that will change your entire outlook on fitness and health, you should go to Foundation Fitness Annandale.I live with severe major depressive disorder, and since the dawn of time, everyone has been telling me that exercise will help. But I never knew what to do in the gym, so I didn't bother trying. However, when my depression became very dark about two years ago, I decided to try training. Three months, I told myself. I’ll give it three months.Then I met Angelo Demark at Foundation Fitness Annandale and two years have passed and I'm still here. Angelo profoundly changed my life. Yeah, I lost weight, I gained muscle, I feel physically “fitter,” but there are other benefits to working with trainers that I feel should be highlighted — like their impact on your mental health. Angelo pushed me on days when I could be pushed, he took workouts slow on difficult days, he made me laugh when I needed it (so, every day). He was supportive and compassionate and stable.I like to say that Angelo didn't help make me "feel good" about just my body — he helped make me, as a whole person, well.I’d also like to shout out Steven Bybee. He’s another fantastic trainer with a great personality — always made me laugh and feel welcome and wanted in the space, which was a feeling I didn’t know I needed until I had it. These guys are not stereotypical, intimidating “gym bros;” they are total and complete sweethearts.I’d also like to thank Patrick Bresley for accommodating me when I needed it. When he was signing me up, he told me that this gym is like a family, and I attempted to call his bluff at one point with something I considered to be an outlandish request. It was not a bluff. He and Angelo took care of me like family when I needed it most.Okay, that’s all. I know this is over-the-top for a Google review, but I’m moving soon and leaving the gym — which is harder for me than leaving some of my friends in this area (I hope they don't see this lol). Also, I really want a Foundation Fitness t-shirt before I go.Basically, go to this gym. It's worth it. You're worth it.

Foundation Fitness in Annandale is hands down the best gym I’ve participated in! It is not like your typical gym experience; it’s extremely personable and tailored for your particular goal. The trainers are all very committed, knowledgeable and encouraging! The gym also includes nutritional guidance to help improve your overall lifestyle and reach goals quicker. I’ve only been there one month so far and am already feeling stronger and healthier then ever.
16:36 12 Mar 20
I could not be happier with my experience at Foundation Fitness over the past 2 years. My current trainer, Angelo, challenges me, is tough on me when needed (typically related to wine), and also suggests ideas that are realistic given my nutty life! All of the trainers there are friendly and welcoming. The community feel is something I really value and I truly look forward to walking in the door every Tuesday and Thursday.
00:30 19 Feb 20
The team at Foundation Fitness Annandale is fabulous! Angelo makes training fun and challenging at the same time. The atmosphere is friendly and non-intimidating . I am well on my way to my goals and I highly recommend this team!
00:23 19 Feb 20
Foundation Fitness has been a great personal training experience the past 6 months. I have been focused on finding a combination of cardio, endurance, weight training, and nutrition to offset the challenges that come as a working mom and slowing metabolism. My trainer Mikayla finds a great balance between keeping me accountable, being flexible with my schedule, and crafting creative workouts that keep things interesting and aligned with my personal health goals. Both staff and other clients are friendly and supportive and it’s made working out shift from a necessary evil to an activity I look forward to. Best of all, I weigh less than when I got married, am stronger than well.. ever, and feel the improvement in stress and balance I was looking for in my life!!
03:16 15 Jan 20
This is the best gym experience that I have ever had. I was super nervous about working out with my knees because I have had so much pain when I run or go down stairs. I never thought I would be doing squats with weight and no pain! I have been on several runs since I started and finish without the usual knee pain. Soooo thankful!The workouts are challenging in a good way, and I go home feeling healthy and feeling good about what I accomplished.Also, Angelo, my trainer, and the rest of the staff are super knowledgeable and give great holistic advice about little things that can affect your workouts and body. He is always super positive and that makes the workouts fun.I recommend this place it is worth your time and money.

i joined a few months ago and really enjoy working with mikayla to get stronger ☺️ they really care about your needs and how your body responds to the workout in general and it definitely has made me more aware of my health and actually care. i def did not see myself liking working out or lifting for that matter but foundation fitness makes me love it! thanks to mikayla 🙂
22:07 14 Oct 19
Great Trainer. I have been training here for 6 months and I am very happy with the trainers at FF Annandale. I like that it is very close to my house. The trainers are friendly and attentive. Mikayla made a nutrition plan and work out plan that are easy for me to learn and maintain. I am hitting all of my fitness goals here.
23:46 01 Jul 19
I just want to shout out to Mikayla Kercher, who has been working with me since March. She pushes me hard, flexes when I've had work or knee issues interfering, and has helped me see marked progress since I've gotten started. My experience with the Annandale location has been nothing but positive, and I'm lucky to have landed there!

I joined Foundation Fitness 8 months ago and I have never felt better. This has been my first experience working with a trainer and I found the best!!!Angelo has pushed me to do more than I thought I was capable of and he makes it fun. His knowledge about nutrition and fitness is impressive and I have learned so much. The environment at Foundation Fitness has been welcoming from day one and I have met some really great people. If you are interested in getting into great shape this is the only place to go!!!
17:49 28 Apr 19
I started with Foundation Fitness of Annandale about 2 months ago and it has changed my life. As a busy, young professional in the DC area finding time and a place to workout was super hard. Foundation Fitness and my trainer Steven make it so simple to come in and do what I need to do to better myself and see results. They are full service too, with weekly check- ins on nutrition and overall goals! So happy with my progress so far!!
20:00 14 Apr 19
I feel so lucky I found this place. I have always been intimidated by gyms and hated going. I have never been athletic but I knew I needed a change in my life and my health if I wanted to be happy. I am in my 20s and have some health issues. I had not been taking care of myself and it was impacting my health and quality of life. I drove past the location often and saw that they did free consultations and decided to give it a shot. BEST DECISION. I have been going twice a week for over a year. It's not like any other gym I had been to before. People know my name and I know theirs. It's small so I get one on one support from my trainer and support from others training. This was a great decision because not only do I have the physical results I wanted but I have more energy, I do more socially, and I am less tired at work. The gym is MY space now. It's not just about physical results, it's my place to unwind and relax and focus on me. I am so grateful I found this place. It's helped me find my strength again. Thank you FF!

I have been going to Foundation Fitness Annandale since mid Feb. 2019. It''s now mid April 2019, and I've lost 13 lbs so far. I feel healthier, lighter and stronger. The trainers are really good at what they do, and they do it in safest way possible. My trainer is Steven, and he is hands down one of the nicest people ever, but he definitely knows when to push, but he never overdoes it. I think that's an important line to be aware of, and he is a master at it. Also, everyone in the gym is extremely nice and welcoming. Even on my first day, I felt like I was part of the family already.If you want to be pushed in the right direction, this is where you want to be. I knew I wanted to get stronger, but I know nothing about weights, and FF Annandale has provided me with the right resources to ensure that I do it properly. On top of that, they also offer nutrition advice - which is honestly the most important part of this process. Just do it. Call them and ask for a quote. 🙂
19:51 31 Mar 19
I have been working out at Foundation Fitness for over a year. My experience has been exceptional.My trainer, Devin has been awesome. Each workout is different and always challenging. I have lost weight and I am stronger. My over all health has improved and I feel great. I look forward to my workouts! All of the trainers are friendly and encouraging. I recommend Foundation Fitness to anyone who wants one on one personal professionaltraining that gets you results.
13:07 16 Feb 19
Perfect mix of good energy, killer workouts, family style community and fun! The trainers really care about your form and safety, while pushing you to your own personal limits.
22:09 18 Jan 19
I've been training with Tae for 6months.He is the BEST. He goes above and beyond to help me stay on track, always checks in with me to see how I am doing, is accommodating to my schedule, and really pushes me to do my best. The gym is open 24 hours for convenience and is one of the best gyms I have ever been to.
01:32 11 Jan 19
03:12 08 Jan 19
Being a hardcore cynic made it a difficult decision, but it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. This is not your ordinary gym. All training is one-on-one or small groups. Angelo is the best trainer I could have ever asked for. He's patient, he cares and he knows his stuff. I started in late April and went from 168 pounds down to 144 pounds. I can deadlift my body weight, and I'm 63 years old!!! So don't think you're too old or too out of shape. Give Foundation Fitness call. You won't regret it.
18:35 28 Nov 18
I finally found the perfect gym and trainers! I have worked with other personal trainers in the past and this is by far the best experience I have ever had. The individual attention, custom plan for my health and wellness, and amazing workouts has been exactly what I have been looking for and needed. The trainers are exceptional and I look forward to every workout! You feel so welcomed when you are there and are motivated to get in a good work out! Having the ability to go in for cardio whenever is convenient has been great, too. If you are looking for a trainer and gym that cares about you, Foundation Fitness is the place to go!!

Foundation Fitness is a great place to work on personal health and fitness with a great coach. The trainers are wonderful, especially mine.
21:52 16 Oct 18
Great find! Personal attention, encouragement, tailored workouts, and support on nutrition. Free parking and 24 hour cardio. Don't just drive by and wonder - stop in!

I joined the gym about a month ago. I was looking for a place that could get me prepared for competitive powerlifting. I found it here! The group atmosphere is amazing and the coaches are even better. The group made me feel welcomed from day one and have helped me push myself to work harder than ever before. An all around great place with an amazing work ethic. I’m more than happy to be a part of the foundation fitness family!

I started with Foundation Fitness in December 2017. I am currently in the process for applying as an officer to the military, but was always lacking in the physical fitness department. These guys have since helped me max out my sit-ups, knock minutes off of my mile times, and just recently have taken me from being able to do no pull-ups to reaching my minimum of 5. And there's no sign of slowing down, my numbers are continuing to improve.
14:47 04 May 18
I didn’t grow up with any fitness knowledge and I have always found gyms intimidating, but I wanted to learn. A friend directed me to foundation fitness about 6 months ago and I have (amazingly) grown to love it! The gym is small but it breeds a great sense of community. The trainers are exceptionally knowledgeable and plan creative and fun workouts. I work with Tae who has the patience of a saint and works really hard to ensure I understand every aspect of every movement.Everyone in the gym is incredibly supportive and encouraging, I feel 100% comfortable stepping through the door for every workout. Highly recommend.
10:57 19 Apr 18
I was searching for a personal trainer to help me recover from major hip surgery. Nine months after having reconstructive surgery, I still didn’t feel like myself but I really wanted to focus on getting back in shape. I was scared to try anything on my own, fearing reinjury. I decided to give Foundation Fitness a try after reading all the positive things other people had to say about them. Sure enough, they were not wrong!When I met them for my consultation, they listened my concerns and my goals. They were upfront with their plans for training and how they would help me meet my goals. Not only do they help with the workout, but they provide nutritional support as well. I was able to learn about how to best fuel my body, not just for workouts but also for my daily life, giving me more energy all day long.The energy and enthusiasm in the gym is contagious! Even if you do one-on-one training, its impossible not to pick up on the energy of the other trainers and clients working out around you.If you are looking for some individualized support reaching your fitness goals, I highly recommend Foundation Fitness!
22:36 17 Apr 18
Great people. Great sense of community. Positive environment. Can’t say enough great things!
19:39 05 Apr 18
What can I say that hasn't already been said about this amazing fitness company? There's a reason Foundation Fitness's Annandale and Annapolis locations have all 5 star reviews -- these guys and gals are the best.I met Lance when I was in 8th grade and he's pretty much the reason I am at all competent in the gym. I started working out with him to lose weight; he helped me lose a good 40 pounds in about 4, 5 months. I eventually went on to play a little D3 basketball, so nothing fancy, but I'd like to think that was partially possible because Lance kept me strong and quick enough to compete. I'm only 5'10".Anyway, in the following decade+, I fell in and out of shape, but whenever I need a refresher on how to keep myself feeling healthy, I can rely on Lance and his team of trainers -- Patrick has also worked me out and is also great. I've been a member of a number of gyms, from VA to CA, and the trainers at Foundation Fitness are definitely the most knowledgeable, helpful, and hard-working out there. They keep up-to-date on a range of exercises and workout styles (i.e. can train newbies and/or highly competitive athletes), can tell you what and how to eat to match your workout goals (which has maybe saved me a little money on groceries), and make themselves available for quick questions when you're working out on your own.A+ y'all. Keep up the great work!AlexP.s. I wrote this review for the Annandale location because it's the only one that I've been to, but I'm sure the team over in Annapolis is just as amazing. Lance wouldn't have it any other way! I also wouldn't be surprised if trainers float between locations. But I'm not sure.
23:06 03 Apr 18
What will you find at Foundation Fitness? Only a GREAT group of trainers to help you achieve any fitness goal you may have-all in a supportive and fun environment in a gym only with good karma! Been training at FF for almost ten years now- initially with Patrick and now with Angelo; what do I love about this place? The trainers, the flexibility of scheduling sessions (I have trained as early as 5:15 am and as late as 9:30 pm), the individuality of each workout session (tailored to whatever ailment one may have), the attention given by the trainers makes one want to continue coming back...My teenage daughters have been working out with Angelo & Tae for over a year now, and their self esteem has bolted; this positivity has extended into their academic achievements in school (and has helped me keep my sanity ) :). Can't say enough positive things FF has provided all of these years not just in helping us stay healthy but also all of the continued support & friendship my daughters & I have received from Patrick, Angelo & Tae. And I have seen Devin being just as committed to his clients. It's a great feeling walking out stronger, feeling better on a regular basis, and no longer eating burgers, fries, caramel machiattos for energy. Oh, and did I mention between the three of us we have lost >50 lbs and are keeping it off! Thanks Guys!
20:57 17 Feb 18
Foundation fitness has helped me in so many ways i came in weighing 226 and now i weigh 202 ! and the environment here is so friendly i get happy when i come cause everyone treats each other like family .
02:16 12 Feb 18
I've been training with Angelo and the whole FoundFit team for just over 5 months now, and I've got to say, these guys are BEASTS! I injured my back a few years ago and reinjured it this past year, and Angelo has been a god send, not only helping me rebuild myself, but also to prevent myself from further injury, while at the same time pushing me to become stronger in all areas. Training sessions are intense, but they won't push you too hard if you're not feeling up to it that day--they'll still push you since that's what a trainers for; just not as hard. I look forward to every training session and am seeing and feeling the difference from my pre-FoundFit body to my post-Foundfit body. They are all very knowledgeable in training techniques and will help you even if it's not your training day. Glad I found this gem of a fitness center just down the street.
15:22 09 Feb 18
An amazing place to begin a journey to fitness. Although I have an athletic background, after many years of "forgetting" to care for myself while caring for my family; I didn't know how to get to back in the gym. What do I do? Do I do a bit of cardio then lifting? I needed guidance and support, from eating right to working out. I found that HERE! Patrick is AWESOME at encouraging you to take that first step. I am thankful to my trainer, Devin, a gentle giant 😉 Cares about how you're feeling but also pushes you to your limit and beyond. The rest of the team and the attendees are so warm (unlike larger gyms) I truly feel a part of the family, not just a number.
14:52 05 Feb 18
I'm a very indecisive person, but I can confidently say that signing up for training here was the best decision I've made. The gym itself is notably small, but it's impressive how efficiently the trainers make use of the space with creative exercises. It really boils down to the essentials and proves you don't need fancy machines to get fit.Some of my favorite aspects of this gym would to be the diversity and energy. Everyone is so friendly in supporting each other, bringing invaluable energy with their unique stories of personal growth. There's a natural sense of community that makes working out more enjoyable.I'm naturally small and underweight it was always discouraging when I could never seemed build muscle. I never thought I could be strong, healthy or confident in my own body.Four months into training with Patrick and I've never been more thankful! His guidance, accountability, and encouragement go a long way. I've been experiencing so many fitness-breakthroughs ever since. Now I can deadlift over 100 lbs. when before I didn't even know what a deadlift was. With his help, I've gained a noticeable amount of lean muscle, healthy weight and a confident attitude towards fitness. Seeing my body grow stronger is the coolest thing. It's even more rewarding to reflect on how healthy and energetic I feel on a daily basis, and to have cultivated routine nutrition and exercise habits.
18:05 20 Jan 18
These guys are awesome! Love the place with fun and welcoming atmosphere. But most importantly I have been coming here for almost 6 months and already see a lot of progress that I was unable to achieve on my own.
02:04 15 Dec 17
My favorite gym in the world !!!!
03:44 12 Sep 17
When I started with Patrick Bresley (owner) at Foundation Fitness Annandale I was a size 12...nine months later I'm a healthy size 4, and there is still more progress to be made!!! Within the first two months, I was able to notice a difference in my strength. I was getting stronger and able to do things I hadn't before like carry a basket full of groceries with no strain. Training sessions are tailored to your body, needs, and limitations. You will learn all about the importance of nutrition and what your body needs to be healthy not "skinny". Because of the relationship that you will build with the trainers and other clients, you will be motivated to be there every week (actually all the time lol) - you will not receive better attention anywhere else. Join our gym family today...see you there!
14:04 07 Sep 17
I have been a long-time client of Foundation Fitness. I cannot say enough about how great the experience has been The trainers are fantastic & can assist, not only with building strength and improving your overall fitness & nutrition, but also with injury rehab, stretching, flexibility, expertise in training for competitions such as fitness, figure, strongman/woman, power lifting, etc. , and it is just an overall great environment. I highly recommend you give them a try. You won't be disappointed.
02:20 30 Jul 17
I can't say enough great things about Foundation Fitness. When I first came to the gym, I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted my goals to be. I had always been active, but I had never had any formal training or guidance on nutrition. Working with Patrick, I went from not knowing how to correctly do a pushup to competing in Strongwoman competitions. I have done four competitions in two years (and placing!) and have another one coming up soon! Patrick and the other trainers really work with you and help you step-by-step the whole way to get to where you want to be. The atmosphere in the gym is always high energy and everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive. The wide range of ages, skill levels, and goals make this gym diverse, but it still feels like a family. I'm so happy to be a part of it!
14:37 21 Jul 17
My name is Patrick Carosi. I have known Lance for over 10 years now and met him at another gym where he trained me. Lance then when out on his own and started Foundation Fitness. What I really like about Foundation Fitness is ALL the trainers "play the part". I see many trainers at other gyms that don't really do much or don't even play the part or even look the part. The knowledge and experience they have is superior to any other training facility I have ever been associated with. I had injuries to my shoulder and back as well. They were serious injuries and his team rehabilitated both my back and shoulder through careful necessary exercises along with massage therapy which Foundation Fitness offers at most of their training centers. If you are looking for experienced amazing personal trainers, Foundation Fitness is the best choice. You can't go wrong here!Thanks Foundation Fitness!
20:59 20 Jul 17
After my gym closed a few years ago, I researched other gyms that specialized in personal training and discovered Foundation Fitness. These guys really put the personal in personal training. Every trainer is really personable and easy to work with. They really care about you and want you to reach your goals. It has been a great experience and you gain gym family!
04:15 19 Jul 17
For years I've wanted to get healthy, lean, and fit but I've never had the discipline to do it on my own. I hate gyms and working out with friends or family never lasted for more than a month. When my wife discovered Foundation Fitness I was a little skeptical, but I was sold when I saw the amount of personal attention we would be getting in our fitness and the custom guidance on nutrition. The approach of balance in fitness and nutrition really works well for me. It's been a change of lifestyle for the long term, not a fad diet or work out phase. I am leaner than I've been in many years and my cardio and muscle strength are at the highest level they've ever been. I am grateful to the trainers for the positive, safe, and comfortable environment they foster and for helping me to work towards being the healthiest version of me I can be.

After being absent from the gym for several years due to illness, I had gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of muscle. I was upset to think of all the hard work that I had lost. I attempted to lose the weight all kinds of ways, but instead began losing hope. Finally, I found Foundation Fitness. I didn't know what to expect as I'd never had a full service training program. I happened to find this gym on Google maps and thought I'd give it a try. I'm SO glad that I did! I'm only 3+ months in and I'm healthier than I have been in the last 8 years! I've already gone down a size and gone up in strength. Even my cardio is up! The support and knowledge I get at FF is top notch. I plan on staying here for years to come. If you've tried to get in shape and keep failing or work hard without results, I highly recommend trying FF!
Michaela is a terrific, knowledgeable, and fun trainer. Besides knowing what she's doing, Michaela brings a lot of humor and warmth to her work. Kimior chooses awesome music and has the world's best attitude. I really like this place because of the commitment and dedication of the team. They care about their clients!
18:44 16 Oct 21
Kimior is a great trainer! Very knowledgeable, kind and fun to work-out with. The gym is very clean and has everything you need.
11:55 16 Oct 21
Foundation Fitness is amazing! As a high school senior my schedule is constantly shifting but the staff and my trainer Michaela have been so flexible and willing to adapt to my needs. It's been about 2 months and I've already seen so much progress with not only with weight loss, but also increased strength. Michaela has also been incorporating boxing into my sessions which has been so much fun! I highly recommend Foundation Fitness anyone who's considering joining... Just do it!
12:33 14 Oct 21
The entire Team at Foundation Fitness of Georgetown has been working with me to accomplish my fitness goals. I've been working out with Michaela for two months now and have far surpassed anything I thought would be possible after multiple children. I look better now in my 40's than at any other point in my life.Michaela is particularly good about listening to fitness goals and tailoring workouts to accomplish the kinds of results you want. She's also helped me to rehab after injury and build strength and mobility that I didn't think was possible. Highly recommend.
18:15 17 May 21
Foundation fitness has been an excellent experience so far! I have been working out with Michaela for three months and already see the changes I was hoping for. Michaela is challenging and will make you work hard every minute of the session! I would highly recommend her! The gym is clean and offers a more private experience than larger gyms that I have been a member of. Sometimes I am the only client in the gym! Every session has been different and tailored towards my personal fitness goals. The equipment is well maintained and there is such a variety! I would highly recommend foundation fitness to anyone looking for a private personal training experience.
03:02 13 May 21
Very friendly group of experts that helps you to set goals and remain consistent in training! They are very easy to communicate with and super flexible in terms of scheduling. Would highly recommend.
09:57 05 Apr 21
Excellent review for Foundation Fitness. I had been training for a bit over a month and saw significant improvements. Not only will one get excellent personal training (accompanied by boxing! Which I very much enjoy), there is also nutritional help, which contributes significantly to health benefits and makes this gym an exceptional find. I worked with Patrick, Kimior, and mainly with Michaela, I couldn’t be happier. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and will genuinely work with you. Thank you, Foundation Fitness. You guys are the best! #raisethebar #beyourbest

This was such a find for me to discover this place. With 2 surgeries, I needed to gain strength to keep doing the things I love, a clean gym that sanitizes everything so I feel comfortable being there, and a trainer who knows exactly what I can tolerate and when to make me fit. Thank you!!

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.

Love this place. Kimior is an amazing trainer!

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!

This personal training studio is outstanding. Every trainer makes the workout personalized to your particular needs.You will not be disappointed! One session or 10, try it!
13:28 07 Nov 19
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.
22:04 01 Nov 19
LOVE this place. You get a terrific work out with such friendly people -Kimior is a gem! If you are serious about getting healthy and fit in a welcoming environment, this is the spot! Plus, they support local charities like Knock Out Abuse.

I've really enjoyed working with my personal trainer Ryan Blake at the Palisaides/Georgetown location. He's great and I love the neighborhood feel of the gym. And having the accountability is key!
17:39 30 Oct 19
My legs hurt,My arms hurt,My whole body hurts,That means this place works!I like my trainer, even though he makes things hard for me. Overall, I really like this place, and it has pretty great equipment.

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!
01:12 25 Oct 19
I'm stronger now than I've ever been, thanks to Kimior and Foundation Fitness!
15:08 24 Oct 19
I have not had as good experience with any trainer as the one I have with Kimior at Foundation Fitness of Georgetown. Reliable, caring, strict and fun. Can't ask anything more from a trainer.
17:22 19 Oct 19
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.
18:53 18 Oct 19
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!
20:57 12 Oct 19
I have been going to Foundation Fitness for almost 10 years, working with Kimior. Clean facility, great trainers and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend it!
20:30 16 Aug 19
I’m training with Ryan Blake at Foundation Fitness in Georgetown, and both and the center are excellent. The trainings are designed specifically for you and I feel steady improvement. The staff and facilities are great and I look forward to continuing.
12:40 10 Aug 19
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.
16:55 06 Aug 19
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.
14:56 28 Jul 19
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.
14:30 26 Jul 19
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!
23:11 22 Jan 19
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.
23:04 15 Aug 18
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.
22:21 17 Jun 18
I love the positive energy here! Great trainers! I highly recommend coming here.
20:24 18 Mar 18
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!
22:24 03 Mar 18
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!
17:34 20 Feb 18
Personal training- excellent studio, very new and modern Friendly and motivating trainer with a variety of unique exercises to meet your fitness needs Completely private, you have the entire studio to yourself.
01:13 17 Feb 18
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.
21:07 14 Feb 18
I never leave reviews, but I have to for Foundation Fitness! This gym is literally turning my life around and continuously encouraging me to incorporate healthy habits into my everyday routine. Everyone here is always smiling and pushing you to do better. 12/10 would recommend to a friend!
00:24 18 Jan 18
great trainers, location and pricing is very reasonable for the area. i am doing boxing training and its a lot of fun
