The New York-based fitness chain Brooklyn Boulders is preparing to open a climbing gym in Washington, D.C., which will be in the Eckington Yards, the new condo development in NoMa.
Brooklyn Boulders, which already has locations in New York City, Chicago, Somerville and Boston, features rock climbing, fitness, arts and culture, co-working, and other activities, while creating communities centering around them.
It has urban rock climbing spaces that “merges fitness with art, music, tech, co-working and events.”
The D.C. branch is scheduled to open in early 2020 and it will be the first gym of its kind in the District.
~Finally~ Earth Treks will have some competition in the DC area—Brooklyn Boulders is coming to the District proper. Hopefully it means better services, & maybe even better prices.

Brooklyn Boulders is known for having “everyone” as its audience regardless of their skills or levels.
Even though its official opening date has not been announced yet, certain details relating to the upcoming D.C. place have surfaced: “Custom-designed walls with artistic inlays, top rope and bouldering areas, locker rooms, saunas, and a café,” according to the Washingtonian.
Membership cost in other branches range from $125 to $149 per month, so the D.C. gym is expected to charge its members around the same amount.
The group is planning to open new spots in Chicago and New York, in addition to D.C.
