After opening in Adams Morgan earlier this month, Solidcore announced it will open a second location in the Shaw neighborhood in mid-February.

The studio will be located at Seventh and S streets, Northwest. It will join retail, restaurants, offices, and residences at Progression Place, a mixed-use property that stands adjacent to the Shaw-Howard University Metro station.

Solidcore recently opened in Adams Morgan, becoming the first studio to use Megaformer machines and offer the Lagree Fitness Method in Washington. Classes are capped at ten students and include 55 minutes of slow, controlled full-body movements performed on the machines. The Solidcore Shaw studio will be 2,100 square feet and include 12 to 14 Megaformer machines.

Solidcore will join other small boutique fitness studios in Shaw such as Reformation Fitness and Xtend Barre DC, but it will be it the first studio of its kind for the burgeoning neighborhood.
