A health and fitness club in Virginia plans to offer free workouts for furloughed federal workers from Arlington and Alexandria, according to an article by In the Loop columnist Al Kamen.

The Energy Club said in a recent announcement that federal employees and contractors only need to bring their furlough papers and government IDs to take advantage of free use of its facilities on the days they’re furloughed.

The organization will also offer a special government rate after the furloughs are finished for everyone who takes the club up on its “Don’t Furlough your Fitness!” offer.

In related news, Kamen wrote that The Daily Dish, a restaurant in Silver Spring, is offering discounted lunches during the week for furloughed folks.
