Sculpt Studio First to Offer Megaformer Workout in Bethesda

The new fitness studio opens Saturday, January 25.

Bethesda residents no longer have to schlep to DC for a Megaformer workout when Sculpt Studio opens there on Saturday.

When it opens just a half mile from the Bethesda Metro station, Sculpt will become the first fitness studio in Bethesda to offer the Lagree Fitness Method, a full-body workout performed on the Megaformer machine. The studio features ten Megaformers and a variety of 50-minute workouts.

The Lagree Fitness Method rose to popularity in Los Angeles in 2001 before spreading to New York. It’s been gaining popularity in Washington lately thanks to the opening of Solidcore in Adams Morgan last November.

Sculpt Studio will offer four types of Megaformer classes, including an all-levels Sculpt class, a 60-minute “mega-workout,” and Megaformer Pilates for new and expectant mothers.

First time on the Megaformer? There’s also a class for newbies and injured athletes called Gentle Sculpt. It’s probably a good idea to start with this intro class, as we can attest that the slow, calculated, full-body workout is likely to leave you sore for days.

Sculpt Studio. 4900 Auburn Ave., Bethesda; 240-600-0730. First class is $20; receive a free class by liking Sculpt Studio on Facebook.
