It took me months to try my first [solidcore] class. I was nervous for two reasons: 1. I had totally gotten out of my gym routine and was so disgustingly unmotivated, so I know it’d kick my butt, and 2. I knew I’d become addicted.
Before [solidcore], I had a decent fitness routine and really relied on that hour of alone time when I joined the corporate world. But because of my time spent in ballet growing up, there are very few exercises I can do that don’t send me into writhing pain. After many boring years of hitting the gym and just accepting the lingering jolts of pain in my back and feet, I had completely lost my motivation. Enter [solidcore].
[solidcore] has completely changed my body and my mind. I have changed nothing about my lifestyle – I’m addicted to the DC food scene and only have added in [solidcore]. It’s the only workout I do, about 5-6 times a week. It has completely transformed the way I look and made me more fit than I could have imagined, but that was never the reason I loved this place. It gives me the serenity of yoga, the strength of body building, the focus of running, the competitiveness of a team sport, the individualized coaching of a personal trainer, and a community that you cannot compare to anything else.
I was right, I did become addicted. I’m addicted to that moment before the song changes and the class begins, to the feeling when you get that devil’s ladder for the first time, to the second you drop those cables at the end of the class, to the people who surround and motivate you through it.
Coming to this place is the highlight of my day, every day. And luckily, it comes with a nice set of abs.
