So many new gyms and fitness studio have opened this year that our poor, tired muscles can barely keep up. Next up: eight more openings scheduled for the Washington metro region. Apparently, we just can’t get enough of indoor cycling and CrossFit.

Here’s what we know about the status of planned gyms and studio openings:

ZenGo Cycle
What: The Bethesda-based indoor cycling studio is opening a second location in the District at the end of November.
Where: 1508 14th St., NW
Cost: $21 per drop-in class. Select lunchtime classes are $15.

Solidcore Fitness 
What: Owner Anne Mahlum describes her classes as Pilates on steroids. All classes take place on the MegaFormer and use the Lagree Fitness Method. The studio opens November 2.
Where: 1840 Columba Rd., NW
Cost: $17 for your first class.

Corepower Yoga
What: The national chain adds another DC location on November 1 when it opens in Glover Park. Corepower Yoga also has locations in Georgetown and Bethesda.
Where: 2233 Wisconsin Ave., NW, Suite 105
Cost: First week free for new students. $20 per drop-in class. 

Old City CrossFit 
What: H Street is home to small yoga and personal training studios, but has thus far been without a gym. Enter Old City CrossFit, which plans to open this month.
Where: 810 H St., NE
Cost: First class free. $20 per drop-in class.

Wired Cycling 
What: Due to some zoning requirements, the indoor cycling studio had to push back its opening date from September to late November (“I will move like lightning to get the place open by Thanksgiving,” says owner Leticia Long). It will be the first indoor cycling studio for the Eckington neighborhood.
Where: 2028 Fourth St., NE
Cost: TBD

Pure Barre Alexandria and Bethesda
What: The national chain of barre studios opened a DC location earlier this year. In early January, both Alexandria and Bethesda will have their own places at the barre.
Where: 1925 Ballenger Ave., Suite 429, Alexandria; 4930 Hampden La., Bethesda
Cost: $25 per drop-in class.

Vida Fitness
What: The luxury gym is slated to open another location in Navy Yard in spring 2014. It will be the Vida’s second location to feature a penthouse pool club.
Where: 1212 Fourth St., SE
Cost: TBD

Sport & Health Club 
What: The fitness facility will be the 24th location for Sport & Health and the first for Rockville. The gym will become part of the new Pike & Rose neighborhood in White Flint District and will feature an outdoor workout space.
Where: Intersection of Montrose Pkwy., Rockville Pike, and Old Georgetown Rd.
Cost: TBD

SoulCycle 
What: The studio that started the indoor cycling craze first announced in April it would finally find a home in DC this summer. But a PR rep tells us there’s still no word on an opening date or location.
Where: TBD
Cost: $35 per class.
