A twist on the popular Pilates and bootcamp style fitness methods, [solidcore] offers a 50-minute, intense, full-body workout utilizing a patented machine created specifically for the studio.
The studio, concept and machine are the creation of Anne Mahlum, an entrepreneur, philanthropist and athlete who founded [solidcore] and serves as its and CEO.
[ solidcore ] has quickly taken hold of a large piece of the nation’s boutique fitness industry.
Today, it is the fastest growing company in the sector, with 46 studios in 15 states, including D.C. and more than 100,000 clients, including the former First Lady, Michelle Obama. [solidcore] plans to operate 125 studios by the end of 2022.
Among the factors setting [solidcore] apart from other high-end work out studios is its geographical versatility. Mahlum intentionally sought out opportunities in smaller markets (like Bismarck, Pittsburgh, Madison, and Ann Arbor, for example) which are generally ignored by the “hip, cool brands.”
From Minot, North Dakota, population 47,000, to New York City, every studio is profitable.
