Popular Fitness Company Ambitious Athletics Opens First DC Outpost

New training facility offers everyday athletes in the Washington metropolitan area a practical and complete approach to fitness

WASHINGTON – July 14, 2015 – Ambitious Athletics, a popular boutique fitness company, whose focus is practical strength and conditioning for everyday athletes, just opened its first standalone training facility in the West End/Foggy Bottom area of Washington, D.C., at 2021 K Street NW. Open Monday through Friday, Ambitious Athletics offers five group training sessions per day beginning as early as 6 a.m. With this new facility, Ambitious Athletics has dramatically increased the capacity of its already thriving business, extending its unique coaching methodology to benefit even more area athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

“When I joined the DC fitness scene in 2007, I noticed it was missing the high quality strength and conditioning programs that I’ve been accustomed to at the high school or collegiate level,” said Ambitious Athletics Founder and Head Coach Carmen Sturniolo. “I started Ambitious Athletics to fill that gap and deliver a complete health and fitness program to the everyday athlete. The demand for such a program has only been confirmed by our rapid business growth, which has made it possible to open our first standalone location.” Ambitious Athletics first joined the DC fitness scene in 2010, providing group personal training to athletes at varying levels of fitness. Prior to opening the K Street location, Ambitious Athletics led training out of a variety of locations across the DC area, including the DC Aikido Studio in Woodley Park and the corporate headquarters of The Travel Channel and The Optical Society of America. Aside from group training, Ambitious Athletics has also provided in-home personal training to the local population.

Now Ambitious Athletic clients can access that same unmatched fitness experience in an uber clean, comfortable, and minimalist training space, fully equipped with squat racks, monkey bars, turf track, sleds, kettlebells, battling ropes, barbells, TRX, and medicine balls. Each client’s individual program is carefully prescribed and displayed on flat screens for guidance throughout the workout experience. Those plans are augmented by the coaching of Carmen and assistant head coach, Lori Lindsey, who are experts in regressions and progressions and adapting the fitness regimen for the client’s fitness level on any given day. Before participating in the program, each client must undergo an orientation process where the coaches observe their movements and individual capabilities.

“Ambitious Athletics is all about providing a safe, smart and effective fitness program for our clients,” said Assistant Head Coach Lori Lindsey, a former professional women’s soccer player who represented the United States at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup & 2012 London Olympic Games. “I joined the company because I believe in our approach and I couldn’t be more pumped to extend our methodology to even more individuals across the metro area.”
