I walked into my first Lagree Method fitness studio thinking it would only be a fun workout but I walked out drenched in sweat, my muscles were quivering and I was completely humbled.

Anne Mahlum, founder and former CEO of the national 501(c)3 organization, Back on My Feet (BoMF), has moved back to Washington, D.C. to open the first Lagree Method fitness studio in the state. On November 2, 2013 Mahlum will open the studio in Adams Morgan. Mahlum has named her studio Solidcore and it is located on 1841 Columbia Road NW next to Napoleon Restaurant.

Boasting 130 licensed studios globally, the Lagree Method originated in Los Angeles in 2008. Internationally licensed studio locations include Australia, Hong Kong and New York. The Lagree Method is a high-intensity, zero-impact workout executed in a small class setting utilizing the patented MegaFormer machine. The MegaFormer is oftentimes described as a cross between a Total Body Gym and a souped-up Pilates Reformer. The workout uses slow and controlled full-body movements with constant tension to work the slow-twitch muscle fibers to failure, which is necessary to tone and sculpt the muscles.

"I have done 11 marathons, five triathlons, the Insanity program, boot camps and many other fitness programs out there. I walked into my first Lagree Method fitness studio thinking it would only be a fun workout but I walked out drenched in sweat, my muscles were quivering and I was completely humbled," said Mahlum. "I knew I stumbled on something very special with something this intense that virtually has no negative impact to my joints."

The Los Angeles market is filled with Lagree Method studios and new studios keep opening as the demand keeps growing. Solidcore instructor, Stephanie Szeto, lived in Los Angeles for 22 years prior to moving to Washington, D.C. in June 2013. Szeto was a loyal Lagree Method client and was thrilled to learn Mahlum would be opening a Lagree Method fitness studio in Washington, D.C.

"The Lagree fitness community in Los Angeles is so large and I’m thrilled to be part of the founding team to introduce residents of Washington, D.C. to the workout that will change both their bodies and how they define strong," said Szeto.

Mahlum is offering classes at her Washington, D.C. Solidcore studio for $17.00 USD starting on November 2, 2013.
