Shaw’s indoor cycling studio, Off Road DC, is about to open a second location in Capitol Hill, and it’s bringing everything you’ve loved about the first location into its new 2,200-square foot space, plus showers.

Like the Shaw studio, Off Road DC on Capitol Hill will offer indoor cycling, boxing, and strength training classes. Two studio spaces—one equipped for indoor cycling and another with punching bags and kettle bells—will host the classes. Both 30 and 50 minute sessions are available, which means that for Washington’s workaholics, there’s a shorter class than the typical 45 to 50 minutes that they can try to squeeze into their overly full schedules.

Additionally, some of the classes combine cardio and strength training, such as the 70-minute Bike + Core workout. Want a real challenge? On Sundays, the gym hosts a two-hour high-intensity “Sunday Sufferfest” virtual ride accompanied by a video that follows along pro cyclists for its “sweat-inducing, soul-searching, gut-wrenching, but totally satisfying cycling.”

The new Capitol Hill studio is slated to open in early January, and it will be located at 637 Pennsylvania Ave., SE.
