Arlington’s BASH Boxing to open new Mosaic District gym this fall

A boutique gym is bringing its boxing-inspired workouts to Fairfax County.

Introduced to Rosslyn in 2018, BASH Boxing will soon extend its reach beyond Arlington County for the first time with a new studio at the Mosaic District in Merrifield.

The location is expected to open in September, a BASH employee told FFXnow last week, but the company is already getting acquainted with the community, popping up at the weekly farmers’ market and partnering with other businesses on free workout sessions.

The gym will be located in 2905 District Ave, Suite 195, on the same corner as EagleBank and Sweetgreen. The room was previously occupied by Zengo Cycle, which declared bankruptcy and shut down all of its fitness studios last year.

With two established sites in Rosslyn and Ballston, BASH announced plans to start franchising in early 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to pivot to live-streamed classes that spring, founder and co-owner Alexandra Trakas told FFXnow’s sister site ARLnow in January 2021.

As its studios reopened for limited in-person classes in the summer of 2020, the business also revived its franchising plans.

“Trakas and her investment team, which includes Washington Capitals player Tom Wilson, plan to help open hundreds of locations ‘in the coming years,’ locally and nationally,” ARLnow reported.

The past couple of months have been busy at the Mosaic District, with a Pressed juice bar and Pupatella Neapolitan Pizza opening in May and June, respectively. In addition, the Mosaic Skateland roller rink has returned for a second year, and Jinya Ramen Bar recently completed a move to a larger location at 2911 District Avenue, Suite 170.

The Middle Eastern restaurant Tawle is expected to open in Jinya’s newly vacated suite later this year.
