Washington DC hosts a high volume of business travelers throughout the year. The constant bustle of business travelers turns the District into a perpetually on-the-go city with more things to do than hours in the day.
While business always comes first, it’s important to cater to our needs as human beings: eating well, sleeping well, and staying active. Some of our food-related posts will help you with finding great food in DC, the luxurious guestrooms at Capitol Hill Hotel will provide you with a spot for an excellent night’s sleep — now you just have the fitness aspect to worry about.
To offer some guidance, we’ve put together a list of the best spots to stay fit during Washington DC business travel.
