-- Logan Circle Home to Second Fuse Pilates Studio -- -- Free classes, discounted packages offered opening weekend, Oct. 25 & 26 --Washington, DC (October 25, 2014) – Due to popular demand for its classes, which include a twist on mat Pilates and traditional apparatus work – always taught on participant requests -- Fuse Pilates is opening a second location in Washington, DC, at 1401 14th St., NW in the heart of Logan Circle. Fuse opened its first studio in 2011 in Logan Circle on Hillyer Place, NW. “We weren’t surprised when DC was named the fittest city in the nation this past summer,” said Roxanna Hakimi, co-owner of Fuse Pilates. “From our mat classes to our chair and reformer classes, students keep requesting more. We decided a second location would be the best way to keep up with customer demand and also welcome new Fuse enthusiasts. We couldn’t think of a better neighborhood than 14th Street.” Fuse’s new location will be equipped with two large group fitness studios and a third studio with reformers, Pilates chairs and the Fuse Ladder for private and semi-private training, as well as rehabilitation work and health coaching. Along with the Grand Opening of Fuse on 14th this weekend, Fuse will unveil its brand new proprietary workout, Fuse Ladder, which features a custom apparatus created by Mariska Breland, co-owner and instructor at Fuse. The brand new Fuse Ladder class will incorporate spring weight resistance, straps, a multi-purpose board, and -- of course -- a ladder. “We wanted to do something that would appeal to everyone from barre fans to CrossFitters, while still taking our inspiration from our roots in Pilates,” says Breland. “This workout emphasizes challenging standing exercises and balance more than any of our other classes. Expect to climb, hang, lunge, squat, push, pull and sweat.” Fuse Ladder classes will be available only at the new Fuse on 14th location, while reformer- and chair-based group Pilates classes will be available only in the Hillyer Place, NW studio. “We opened the second location close to our original home to provide our students with access to as many classes as possible within close proximity,” noted Hakimi. “Our popular mat classes will be available daily in both locations.” Fuse Pilates will kick off the opening of its 14th Street location with free classes at both studios on Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26. Those interested can register online beginning on Monday, October 20th, to reserve their spot. Additionally, students can drop by either of Fuse’s two locations and take 30% off of any 5- or 10-class package. This offer is not available online or by phone; only in person on the opening weekend. All Fuse classes are uniquely customized to student requests and choreographed to upbeat music. The Fuse team is a highly trained and experienced group of instructors led by Breland, an internationally recognized Pilates instructor and creator of the Fuse method, whose many certificates in body movement include Pilates for injuries and pathologies, Pilates for pre- and postnatal- women, and Pilates for neurological injury.
