- MisFits Columnist
Vicky Hallett has been one of The Washington Post’s MisFits since the column began in 2007. Read it every week in the Wellness section or Lean & Fit e-newsletter for the latest on the area exercise scene. Her day job is editing the Fit section of Express, which is where you’ll also find her weekly transit column, DC Rider. She lives in the District’s Capitol Hill neighborhood with her husband.
The just-opened gym wants to offer “CrossFit equipment, but not a CrossFit atmosphere,” according to owner Maddie Watkins. The goal: Create a place where no one is too intimidated to walk through the door.
For transit users, waiting around is no big deal. But even the most patient passengers have their limit. And this week, we definitely hit it.
