A Refuge for Spies Opens at CIA Headquarters

The 43,000-square-foot facility opened March 14, ending a more than two-decade quest to replace a pair of cramped and moldering basement gyms and finally bring the agency up to par with the athletic facilities found at military bases and on Capitol Hill. Congress, which lavished funds on gyms for the U.S. armed forces, for years balked at doing likewise for a civilian intelligence agency, former officials said. “The pressures and strains faced by our officers and their families are unrelenting—with two decades shaped by counterterrorism threats followed by two years of COVID,” CIA Director wrote in response to questions about the new gym.
