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.)

Gramercy Pilates NYC! (Hi new friend!)

If you’ve been reading Cuckoolemon for a while now, you know my fitness palate is pretty “basic bitch.” I frequent the same studios everyone else likes, and they are all chains. But I’m happy to report thanks to ClassPass, I’ve made some new friends. Come meet my pretty new pal: Gramercy Pilates NYC.
