[solidcore] is frequented by many serious athletes and fitness enthusiasts in the DC/VA area, including First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama, who has been a consistent client for the past two years.

ABOUT [solidcore]

[solidcore] sets itself apart from any other full-body workout due to the use of a specific [solidcore] spring-based machine offering 2-300 pounds of tension. The [solidcore] method emphasizes slow and controlled full-body movements with constant tension, forcing muscles to rebuild in a stronger and more sculpted way. This intense workout is led by highly skilled certified [solidcore] coaches leading clients through hundreds of moves and resistance options to consistently challenge the body, meaning every workout is different which keeps the body guessing. The small class sizes of no more than 14 people means each client receives personalized attention and coaches are able to manage different fitness levels in class. Clients come from all walks of life, from professional athletes and weekend warriors, to stay-at-home moms and CEO’s."
