Fitness First closes in Bethesda (Photos)

Fitness First, as planned, closed its doors forever at the close of business Friday night. Their building, 7900 Wisconsin Avenue, is being demolished to clear the way for a new JBG Companies mixed-use project anchored by Trader Joe's. Fitness First is selling some of their equipment, as you can see in the sign on the door pictured here (click photo to enlarge).

"Their building, 7904 Wisconsin Avenue"

While FF is 7904, the building address is actually 7900 Wisconsin.

Robert Dyer said...

Thanks, I've corrected it. A ridiculous mistake, considering how often I've written about 7900 Wisconsin over the years.

Did Robert Dyer actually admit a mistake, and then promptly correct it?

Homer not only nodded, he even smiled a bit.

"The must-read blog for breaking Bethesda news... if you're OK with getting it three and a half days later."

The daily litany of Aaron Van Horn. All of the made up lies about Dyer along with the same assorted grudges and resentments against Dyer. And this man continues to post as a woman.

Totally off topic, fake and should be deleted.

Why does Robert Dyer believe that only men read and comment on his blog?

That's very strange.

Robert Dyer said...

10:41: Totally false. You will be sued for defamation once your true identity is revealed, if you don't stop posting false statements.

Robert Dyer said...

11:24: Trust me, I've met many female readers of this website in real life.

Robert Dyer said...

11:17: I'm the one who broke the story that Fitness First was closing weeks ago, dumbass.

Anna Van Horn said...

You haven't met me...yet.


Robert, I'm just a normal person, posting my thoughts & being real, who one day happened to disagree with your numbers.

For some reason it scares you so much you've vilified me, made wild untrue accusations against me, threatened me, ridiculed me, and said some pretty nasty ugly things. You've even deleted my comment, then referenced it with a LIE about what it had said.
Any time I've defended myself, it's caused more of the same. Shameful.

Big words from Anonymous "Tim". Easy to hide behind a fake name. Coward.

Anna Van Horn said...

You can delete my comments over and over, but they're still true.

I am who I say.
I was indeed a shill before you attacked me for no reason other than "only the troll would disagree with me."
You use your sockpuppets/aliases to bully, taunt and demean me.

I'm just a nice little gal who one day happened to disagree with your numbers.

All provable. With actual documents and facts. Real facts.

Why would "Tim," "Rugby" "Skippy" "Friends of 'something'" be so outraged at what I've posted that they feel the need to join in the bully-fest? Even start it as the first posters in a thread to slam me?

Why does "Rugby" keep calling me a liar, when I showed I'm not.

So, Dyer...why are you hell-bent on disparaging me?

Whoever closed Fitness First on Friday night, forgot to turn the sign off. It was still burning brightly on Monday night.

Tim said...

The daily litany of Aaron Van Horn...so many resentments, so little time :)
It's a parody account. Same guy that did "Poppy" last year?

Anna Van Horn said...

The daily litany of "Tim" insulting me.
Can't believe a woman would post here.

What have I ever done to you "Tim"?
Why are you doing this to me?
Why are all of you doing this to me?

Don't feed the troll :)

Watching the same sorry man who has stalked Robert Dyer for years post as Anna, me (Tim) and Anonymous as well as assorted another names. It's like watching an ape fling its crap at people. Sickening to watch :(

Dyer, meanwhile, is reporting the news. Let's celebrate him...we'd be in news deserts around the county without his work.

Happy 4th everyone! I love the community on here.

Anna Van Horn said...

Why are you lying about me?
What have I ever done to you "Tim"?

Anonymous said...

Anna posts her real name, "Tim". How do you gather she is the "same sorry man"?

Tim said...

You're a troll who constantly posts off topic.

And you attack Dyer with ad hominems.

And you're boring. Your parody is old.

The Real Anna Van Horn said...

Tim, you're lying. I'm not.

Why? All I've done is defend myself. You are a pathetic coward.

Is Dyer reporting the news? Or is he reporting opinions?
