While Vida Fitness doesn’t look a day over six, the luxury gym and spa recently celebrated its seventh anniversary with a huge bash at the glamorous Penthouse Pool. I’ve been to soirees at Vida Fitness before, Cori Sue and Becca even co-hosted a summer kick-off party with Thrillist this past May at the Penthouse Pool, and let me tell you, these people know how to throw a party.
Before I even entered the establishment people were littering the streets outside the gym chatting merrily and smoking before they returned to the party. We pushed past the crowd, made our way to the elevator, and ascended to the penthouse. When the elevator doors opened there was no mistaking you were about to enter a full blown party. Music was thumping throughout the penthouse, the fire pits were ablaze—surrounded by laughing,chattering attendees.
Every now and then a flash would go off from one of the many photographers that laced the party to document the good time and the chic, fashionable party goers. A few brazen [read: slightly intoxicated] members were even swimming in the pool amongst the changing lights while others talked amongst themselves within the cabanas that surround the pool.
We grabbed a couple of drinks from the wrap-around bar and made our way to the edge of the party to take in the killer view of the District. After falling even more in love with the city than we already are, we took a seat next to the pool and talked about everything from the party itself to our own personal lives. The event was the perfect combination high energy excitement paired with a low-key atmosphere. It was easy to see everyone was enjoying themselves and celebrating Vida Fitness’s seventh anniversary in style.
