Body Fit Training, a studio that offers custom workout plans, is coming to North Point Village Center in Reston.

The business will take up nearly 2,700 square feet of space at 1422 North Point Village Center. It was tentatively expected to open in the first quarter of next year, but the prospective franchise owner has had to step back, necessitating a temporary pause in development.

The company’s corporate team is currently conducting a search for new ownership.

Pavan Katariya, the company’s developer for Northern Virginia, says the Reston location is designed as a neighborhood space.

“We are basically personal training that’s done in a group fitness setting,” Katariya said. “So, unlike at other gyms where there’ll be one trainer to 20 or 30 or 40 people, we have multiple coaches in each of our classes, and so, it’s a much more curated and hands on experience and we are also entirely strength training-focused, which is not something that other studios do.”

He says the company identified a need in the Reston market.

“There wasn’t a good strength training studio that combined personal training and group fitness together in that area, and so, they thought it would be something that people in that area would really like,” Katariya said.

A location in Tysons is expected to open in November. It will be Body Fit Training’s first studio in the D.C. area.
