Washington Sports Club Offers Free Workout to Hurricane Victims

Use their facilities at no charge until September 15

The Washington Sports Club is opening its doors for free once again, this time for all victims of Hurricane Irene. With the death toll of the storm currently at 42 and hundreds still dealing with severe flooding and no power, Town Sports International wants to lend a helping hand.

Sports Clubs in Washington, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston will offer use of its facilities for free until September 15. The clubs “will be opening its doors to all victims for full use of its facilities, whether it’s the need for a hot shower, to charge a cell phone battery, or simply to recharge their batteries with a stress-relieving workout.”

Residents must be at least 18 years old and have a photo ID on hand. There are 18 Washington Sports Club locations in Washington. To find the club nearest you, visit My Sports Clubs’s Web site.

Washington Sports Club is still offering first responders and military personnel a discounted $20-per-month membership until September 11. Click here for more information.
