An outpost of the nationwide fitness chain solidcore is opening in the former home of the International Center of Photography's (ICP) home at 250 Bowery...
Here's a description of their popular workout via Well & Good:
It involves a megaformer, free weights, and a whole lot of being really, really mindful of the way you move your body. The method uses slow, controlled movements (“the slower the better!” is a common refrain in class) to burn out your slow-twitch muscles to the point of failure. The thinking is that this creates long, lean muscles over time.
This location just south of Houston Street debuts on March 7 ... in an area where more boutique gyms and studios have been opening.
The ICP cleared out of this space last summer ahead of a move to Essex Crossing.
