There are a number of reasons why Washington Sports Club is a great place to work out. Not only are there 18 locations in the Washington metropolitan region, but each location offers an extensive list of exercise classes. Of the 7 clubs I have visited, I have always encountered clean locker rooms and friendly staff. Each club also offers a daily 22-minute express weight-training workout that is free to members and supervised by WSC staff. The only reason I don't give these clubs 5 stars is that, membership is pricey.
