Washingtonian women came out to celebrate the first day of summer at Washingtonian’s Fit Fest at American University on Saturday, June 21. Design Foundry transformed the Bender Arena, creating high-energy customized studios and converting the upstairs to accommodate semi-private doctor chats and a massage studio. Attendees enjoyed classes from the area’s best fitness instructors, such as barre, Pilates, boot camp, CrossFit, yoga, spinning, pole dancing, and running. Guests shopped the marketplace and enjoyed food demonstrations by local celebrity chef Will Artley and his wife, Kim Artley, and got to sit in on health and wellness panels from local experts.
