Washington, DC (June 12, 2009) VIDA Fitness, the creatively designed Washington, DC fitness center and spa with locations at the Verizon Center and the Metropole in Logan Circle, has announced the grand opening of its third location in the Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel. Located at 999 9th Street, NW, this Washington DC hotel health club is across from the DC Convention Center in the bustling Penn Quarter District.

The luxurious 10,000-square-foot VIDA Fitness Renaissance incorporates its popular wellness spa services with the latest cutting-edge strength programming, personalized fitness and circuit training. Included at this new location is VIDA Fitness' Zen Spa, featuring a European steam room, sauna and endless pools. Members and guests can also experience the flagship location of Aura Spa a 4,000-square-foot Washington DC hotel day spa that offers relaxation and detoxification treatments. Available spa treatments include skin care, facials, body treatments and massage therapy, all complemented by state-of-the-art amenities, four full treatment rooms and a spa concierge. Monthly memberships and day passes are available to the general public and hotel guests have complimentary full access throughout the new facility.

Designed by Stoneking-von Storch Architects and the Hallock Design Group, VIDA Fitness Renaissance exhibits a plush atmosphere that mimics chic resort spas. Throughout the new facility, VIDA's space is sectioned into different environments through the use of texture and color. Like its VIDA counterparts, The Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel space is also designed into zones and transitional spaces featuring a variety of health, fitness and personal training services.

With the success of the flagship Verizon Center and Metropole locations, David von Storch, founder and owner of VIDA Fitness, desires to expand VIDA's presence and give Washingtonians and visitors alike the option to strengthen, tone and revitalize in this innovative ambiance.

"We're delighted to open VIDA's third location in the exquisite Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel," says von Storch. "Many area hotels include workout spaces, but do not offer a full venue of elite fitness and spa options that incorporate our concept of balancing mind, body and spirit. VIDA Fitness offers an elegant gathering place that invigorates all the senses with its design, rejuvenating transitional spaces and soothing, peaceful areas."
