Crunch Chevy Chase
Crunch is known for its out-of-the-box group classes (ballet with a stability ball, and weight training on a surfboard to name a couple). But “Pound” might be its wackiest yet: The class uses quarter-pound “drumsticks” instead of weights to strength train. Participants get the cathartic pleasure of banging on the floor or beating the sticks together as they do squats, lunges and crunches. $20 per class for nonmembers.
