Bryn Mawr’s Focus Fitness Main Line is expanding its line of fitness studios and bringing Focus Barre and Yoga to 1923 Chestnut. The new business will be above Breakaway Bikes and in the same building as Body Cycle Studio. Offerings include activities I consider pure torture, so best to go over to Be Well Philly — where the healthy, well-adjusted people are — for more details.
Center City is making room for a new fitness studio at 19th and Chestnut, as Bryn Mawr’s Focus Fitness Main Line moves to add a another outpost to its growing family of studios. The new studio will be a hybrid yoga-and-barre studio called Focus Barre and Yoga, housed on the second and third floors of 1923 Chestnut Street, above Breakaway Bikes. It will replace Focus Fitness’s West Philly studio, Barre Focus Fitness University City.
(And if you did a double take there, breathe easy: Body Cycle Studio, which inhabits most of the second floor of 1923 Chestnut, is not moving. Focus Barre and Yoga is using a studio space on the same floor, as well as space on the third floor, so the two studios will basically just share a bathroom. Phew!)
No need to shell out for a fitness class tomorrow, KOP-area Be Wellers: Lululemon at the King of Prussia mall is hosting a free in-store barre-less barre class at 9 a.m. Instructor Jennifer Anello, who owns Limerick’s BodyRide cycling and barre studio, will lead the 45-minute class. This is a bring-your-own-mat event.
