The results-driven approach we have developed runs contrary to 99.9% of the personal training industry – our personal trainers’ success is measured and incentivised solely on the quality of their results and the value they deliver to the client – not on the number of sales they make.

Ultimate Performance Washington DC gyms are private and by appointment only, so you never have to queue for equipment, you are guaranteed privacy, and you can feel free and unfettered to train hard and achieve your goals.

We understand that every client is unique. So, every one of our personal training programs is unique too – tailored to each individual client’s goals, needs and abilities to ensure we deliver maximum results and return on investment.

Our methods and results are not based on the quick-fix mentality of the wider fitness industry. We pride ourselves on giving you the tools and real-world information you need to maintain optimal and sustainable health for life.

Our results

We take your results personally. Everything we do, inside and outside the gym, is focused on giving you the best outcomes possible. In fact, the average transformation at Ultimate Performance Washington DC requires just 2.7 hours per week of gym time to achieve the kind of results we are renowned for.

We leave no stone unturned from helping you with sleep strategies and stress management, to smart supplementation and nutrition, and bespoke training and diet plans constantly tweaked to elicit the best possible results.

We understand that ‘results’ are more than just skin deep. Our scientific approach to body transformation means we track and measure every metric possible – from body fat and blood pressure to sleep and mood – so you can see quantifiable improvements before your eyes.

The best investment you can make for your health

Ultimate Performance is the best place to invest in your lifelong health and achieve incredible body transformation results. Here are just some of the reasons to partner with our Washington DC personal trainers on your journey.

Health and Wellbeing in Washington

Washington DC is widely recognised as a city with good health.

2016 saw Washington DC rank as the fittest city in the United States for the third time in a row, closely followed by Minneapolis according to the American Fitness Index (AFI).

Recent AFI figures show that 96.3% of the DC population is within a 10-minute walk of a park, and the city spends $346 per resident on park development. Given these positive trends, just 25% of the population is obese, almost 5% lower than the national average.

Home to our elite DC Metro training facility, the Washington Metro area also performs well on health and wellbeing metrics. Metro has notable strengths, including positive personal health behaviours and amenities that support physical activity and healthy living, according to an exercise physiology report from Georgia State University in Atlanta.

Washington’s strong health metrics are perhaps influenced by some of the stunning outdoor spaces it has to offer. The area boasts geological diversity like few other areas in the US, including Kenilworth Gardens and Bishop’s Garden. Just north of Washington, our world-class gym in Bethesda sits directly in the middle of an area that has received plaudits for its quality of life.

Bethesda is home to many parks and trails for people who love to stay active, including the 11 mile-long Capital Crescent Trail, which is popular with walkers and joggers.

In terms of overall health and the prevalence of disease, the figures are remarkably positive for Washington DC, according to the United Health Foundation.

  • Washington DC experienced its lowest diabetes prevalence rate for over a decade in 2020. 7.5% of people in DC reported being told by a health professional that they have diabetes, compared to the national 10.6% figure.
  • Just 6% of people in Washington DC are affected by cardiovascular disease, over 2% lower than the national 8.1% statistic.
  • High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, the leading and fifth-leading causes of death in 2018. respectively. Just 27.2% of people in DC suffer from high blood pressure, over 5% lower than the rest of the US.

There are, however, some concerns outlined by data collected by a Greater Washington report. When put under the spotlight, DC has a disparity in overall health across different neighbourhoods. There is an evident east-west divide in the state, with data showing Brookland and Anacostia are less healthy places to live than Chevy Chase and Georgetown.

Life expectancy in America has declined over the past three years based on research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This figure has dropped from 78.8 years to 78.6 years.

In line with the national trajectory, Washington DC’s life expectancy is lower than the US average, with residents living to just 76 years, according to Senior Living.
