The [SolidCore] Experience

SolidCore DC Social Magazine Katie Welsh___ “If Michelle Obama can do it than I can do, right?” “YES!” This, of course, is not my normal mindset, but when it comes to fitness I think I can keep up with Mrs. President.

I first heard about [solidcore] from a good friend of mine. I’m a fitness enthusiast and always up for a new workout, so I wasn’t about to say no. I read the workout description on the company’s website and felt confident about giving it a try. “Work your muscle fibers to failure”- I can do that! And a “different workout every time you come”- awesome! There are only 10 people in each class, so I knew I was guaranteed to get personal treatment and I was not disappointed.

I arrived 15 minutes early and met the instructor. I was one of four new people in the class and we all received a tutorial on the MegaFormer, which consists of a stationary platform on each end and a sliding platform in the middle. The class filled up, the music was turned on, and we were off. After about 30 seconds I knew I was in for it. We started by working core muscles, then moved on to legs, butt, and arms. The movements were all slow but the class was anything but; before I knew it I was drenched with sweat and all my muscles were twitching! Being a newbie I took a number of short breaks during the 50 minutes, but those with more experience kept up and even added additional weight- hence a different workout each time. Will I give it another try? Definitely! I feel challenged to build up the strength to make it through one of the [solidcore] classes without stopping. Oh and not to mention, being able to tell my friends I do the same workout as Mrs. Obama!

[solidcore] is a class-based fitness studio that offers 50-minute classes on the patented MegaFormer using slow and controlled full-body movements with constant tension to work your muscle fibers to failure – yep failure. This low-impact process forces your muscles to rebuild a more sculpted, stronger and [solid] you. The workout is different everytime you come so it’s impossible for your body to plateau or stop responding. Each class has a certified coach that motivates you the entire time to push yourself further than you would on your own. The studios are raw, inspiring and welcoming. The music is energetic to keep you focused and having fun while you build the best body of your life. You will be amazed by this workout and its results – guaranteed.
