Parking Instructions

You’ll see...it’s only a bit difficult the first time you do it.

The General Rule:

In general, you will park in the Main Parking Garage of the Two Bethesda Metro Center Building, located on North Lane just off Woodmont Avenue in "FitnessWise Reserved" spaces.

If you arrive before 7:00am or after 4:30pm on weekdays, or anytime on weekends, you will park in the Short-Term (Alternate) Parking Garage in "CCLC/FitnessWise Reserved" spaces.

You MUST display a FitnessWise Parking Pass to park in any FitnessWise spaces or you may be towed. See information below for more details.

You'll see...it's only a bit tough the first time you do it.

The Specifics:

The Main Parking Garage is run by Colonial Parking and is to your right as you turn onto North Lane from Woodmont Avenue.

Main Parking Garage: located on North Lane (opposite Bethesda Metro pick-up area)
Park there:
Monday -Friday: 7:00am-4:30pm

Once you pass through the gate of the Main Parking Garage, you should park immediately to your left in spaces marked “FitnessWise Reserved.” (if you can’t find it, ask the parking attendant). We have stack parking; you can take your keys with you unless you block someone. If you block someone, please leave your keys either in the ignition or with the parking attendant, who will move it only if necessary. If a space is not available in our reserved section, you should park in any other non-reserved parking space in the garage.

We are happy to validate your parking ticket for the Main Parking Garage. We design your exercise program to take no more than 1 ½ hours and schedule you for exercise appointments of up to 1½ hours. We have rearranged validation so you will have ample time to change prior to and after your exercise. Should you need to eat, shop or visit other areas of downtown Bethesda, please ask at the front desk...if you don’t, you will be charged by Colonial Parking for any additional time you are parked (see parking attendant for details), without exception.
