Happy Anniversary to City Fitness Gym in Washington, DC which was my community and home for 11 years. Owned by two incomparable women: Dega Schembri and Lucinda LaRee, who, along with Elie Cossa, I owe so much. Wish I could have been sipping champagne and laughing with all of the CF’ers this weekend as you celebrated 20 badass years. Cheers!
The Oscars of DC fitness. Honoring the owners of City Fitness Gym, who have been changing lives for 30 years, from the Supreme Court to me…through their passion for fitness and giving back to the community. So blessed to call them friends. Best gym ever!

Tonight’s celebration deepened my understanding of why I have always felt there is something extraordinary about this gym — community, commitment, vision = Dega and Lucinda. Thank you for tonight and for our gym.
Thank you all so much for your help, encouragement, and positive attitudes throughout the year. you make the gym such a warm, inviting, and friendly place to be, and that makes all the difference in the world.
I love you ladies! You have inspired so many people!
Yes indeed! Congratulations and best wishes to you both as you celebrate the 20/30 anniversary of City Fitness! You are the role models of how women can succeed in establishing a business in a very competitive domain. You have done this by not only offering a well-equipped gym and highly professional trainers, but by providing programs for athletes, & physically challenged, as well as for young & older persons. It is a neighborhood and welcoming gym. Kudos to you both. Go on from strength to strength!
Congratulations! All the best for many more years!
Congratulations! You must be so proud of all you have accomplished & given back to the community. With great admiration….
They really make a point of getting to know you. When you’re doing something as mundane as exercise, and somebody can make it more meaningful, that’s actually quite an accomplishment.
After 10 years as a member while living in Cleveland Park, I have moved to Chevy Chase. When I’m not at the gym, I love to bake, so I wanted to give you some chocolate chip cookies (my special recipe) as a thank you for being so friendly and helpful, and for maintaining such an excellent neighborhood gym that has great equipment and great classes! I have been very spoiled by the convenience and community feeling of City Fitness, and I will miss it. Thank you especially to the evening staff, who have probably memorized my routines by now. I wish all of you the best! Warm regards,
