Washington Navy Yard Fitness Center


The goal of MWR Fitness & Sports is to motivate the entire Navy population, including active-duty service members, family members, retirees and DOD civilians, to adopt a personal plan to get fit, stay fit and set an example of physical readiness others want to follow.

Located in the Washington Navy Yard Town Center, MWR’s Fitness Center features three floors of top of the line cardiovascular and weight equipment, two racquetball courts and group exercise. Male and female locker rooms are also available on the first and second levels.

Individual and group instruction is available from certified fitness professionals in cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, flexibility and nutrition.
