There are so many gyms in this area and they look close together, but the drive times can be crazy. For us if practice (or tumbling class) starts at 5 or 6 it would be a nearly 2 hour drive. If practice starts at 7:30 it can be 45 minutes. You can live 15 miles from 5 different gyms but you’ll probably only have 1 or 2 that don’t require you to drive in the same direction as DC after work traffic. There are no gyms between DC and Stafford though (Fairfax and Manassas are closest but they are to the west). That’s super weird, all the kids from that part of Nova drive an hour no matter where they cheer. There are a couple gyms in Fredericksburg but getting on 95 south is a nightmare so I think most of their kids come from further south. If a decent gym opened in Lorton/Woodbridge they’d be mobbed with kids.
