Class Review: [Solidcore] the Michelle Obama workout

UPDATE: [Solidcore] informed me that their machines are not megaformers but patented  [solidcore] machines. (But they do look very similar to megaformers, if that’s what you’re familiar with!) I visited their website to get the 411 on these pretty ladies.

Michelle Obama’s Arms (all caps because they’re a proper noun in my heart) are enviable. I remember reading that was was a regular at a DC-based studio called [solidcore] and my interest was piqued. [Solidcore] has studio locations in Philly, the DC area and Atlanta.

I tried to take a class on my many work trips to the nation’s capital, but as luck would have it, the studio was always booked. I was in Philadelphia for work Thursday to Saturday last week before heading to DC for a Saturday night wedding and found myself with a little time before my train. [Solidcore] has a studio in Center City, Philly and I snagged one of the few remaining spots in a morning class. (You know something is going to be good when its nearly booked solid at 8:30am on a weekend.)

Every time I worked out last week (4/11- 4/17)

Good morning, sunshine(s)! Did you have a good week? The Boston Marathon was last Monday and like many of you, I have race fever! Speaking of racing, earlier this week I shared my race etiquette wish list. Got anything to add to that list?

Ok down to business.

Every time I worked out last week:

Monday: I finally tried Pop Physique (a California-originated barre studio that opened an outpost in NYC). The studio has a sassy-chic aesthetic. I liked the workout. It’s very similar to Physique57 in structure and intensity.
