Ideally located two blocks from the Navy Yard Metro and the Nationals baseball Stadium District CrossFit aims to be open sometime in the third quarter of 2012.

District CrossFit owner Andrew Killion says “We believe in the CrossFit training methodology because it’s the most efficient and effective training protocol we’ve discovered.” He goes on to say, “We are excited about bringing CrossFit to the Riverfront.” Indeed according to the Capitol Riverfront BID the area is already home to a mixed-use community of over 35,000 daytime employees in 6.8 million SF of office including the Washington Navy Yard and U.S. Department of Transportation, 3,000 plus residential units including apartments, condos, co-ops and townhouses with an estimated residential population of over 4,000 people, a 204-room Courtyard by Marriott, the 41,000 seat Nationals Park baseball stadium, and a continuous one mile riverwalk trail from Diamond Teague Park to the 11th Street bridges.
