It’s official. The new OAK Health Club coming to Ashburn has formally announced it will open its doors on May 1 and, with it, bring a variety of new and unique services to the community. It’s the first OAK Health Club location anywhere in the nation.
The club will feature 29,000 s.f. of indoor and dedicated outdoor space aimed at helping people improve their health and fitness. OAK will have an open concept design with distinct zones emphasizing fitness, recovery, and community. Amenities include an on-site dietician, an in-house spa offering cryotherapy and infrared saunas and a café serving locally-sourced food. Also, the innovative fitness equipment is described as being IOT-enabled — which may mean it will sync up with or connect with your own wearables to help guide and track your workout.
As we’ve reported, OAK Health Club is coming from ASI, a subsidiary of AARP, the organization dedicated to people age 50+. While there are no age restrictions to join the club, there will be an emphasis on lifelong health and fitness. “When we surveyed the fitness marketplace, we found demand for personalization – for an experience designed for you – but few options,” said Jason Mugg, ASI’s Senior Vice President for Emerging Businesses. “Every day, we work to empower people to have options and choices as they age. And we believe OAK Health Club will help people, no matter their age, better maintain their long-term health and be resilient in the face of life’s challenges.”
The new center is opening in the Riverside Square center on Ashburn’s north side. That’s off Riverside Parkway, east of Ashburn Village Boulevard. The club has already started its membership drive as it moves towards the May 1 opening. The announcement stressed that the club will follow all Virginia state COVID-19 safety guidelines when it opens.
