As a self-proclaimed workout-class connoisseur, I've tried my fair share of fitness studios. But even with my stacked resume, Solidcore classes remain at the top of my list thanks to the killer benefits, small class sizes, and high energy. Not to mention, the strength-training studio is only continuing to gain traction on social media, leading many to wonder how much Solidcore costs and what the membership prices are really like.

Before we get into specific Solidcore pricing, let's start with what you're paying for. In essence, Solidcore is made up of a 50-minute "high-intensity, low-impact" strength-training workouts, each done on a resistance-based machine, says Triana Brown, the director of talent and product development at Solidcore. It's a full-body workout that prioritizes progressive overload (gradually boosting the intensity of your workouts) and slow, controlled movements to target the slow-twitch muscle fibers in your core, obliques, lower body, and upper body, she explains.

The intention behind the workout is to completely burn out each muscle group to reach "second-stage muscle failure," so your muscles build back stronger over a couple of days, says Cassie Campbell, a head coach and manager at Solidcore in Chicago. Each class starts with a 10-minute core warmup, before moving into obliques and the upper- and lower-body muscle focuses of the day, she explains. The specific upper- and lower-body muscle focuses rotate daily to ensure proper recovery (for example, one day might be chest and outer glutes, while the next day is biceps and inner thighs), but you can still expect a full-body burn at each class, she says.

It's also worth noting that Solidcore is not the same as Pilates, which is typically rooted in deep breathing to improve muscle tone and flexibility. Solidcore places a bigger focus on increased resistance, muscular endurance, progressive overload, and time under tension to build strength, Campbell says.

If these components sound enticing, keep reading for everything you need to know about Solidcore classes, including Solidcore pricing, Solidcore memberships, and additional costs to keep in mind.

Solidcore Prices

Because exact pricing is dependent on location, there isn't one clear answer as to how much Solidcore costs. There's a wide range of classes and membership packages to choose from, and your location influences the price as well, Brown says. To give you a better idea of Solidcore pricing, reps shared some of the average class packages below. Just note that if you're looking for exact pricing and membership info, it's best to check with your local studio and/or search your specific Solidcore location on the website.

Uncommitted Solidcore Prices ($26 and up). The options include:

  • Single Class: $37 (prices range from $26 to $43)
  • 5-Class Package: $173 (prices range from $119 to $204)
  • 10-Class Package: $327 (prices range from $219 to $394)
  • 4 Classes Per Month (month-to-month with no long-term contract): $127 (prices range from $84 to $153)
  • 8 Classes Per Month (month-to-month with no long-term contract): $234 (prices range from $144 to $289)

Solidcore Membership

If you're interested in a Solidcore membership, there are several options to choose from:

6-Month Commitment Memberships ($72 and up). The options include:

  • 4 Classes Per Month: $109 (prices range from $72 to $131)
  • 8 Classes Per Month: $200 (prices range from $123 to $246)

  • Unlimited Classes Per Month: $256 (prices range from $138 to $311)

So why do prices vary depending on the location? It has to due with the level of demand and the cost of business, Brown says. There are currently 112 Solidcore studios across the nation (and counting!), but classes in metropolitan areas like New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Chicago are pricier than those in smaller markets, she explains. However, Solidcore does offer a discount for up to 25 percent off regularly priced packages for military members, students, teachers, and healthcare providers.

Monthly membership holders have additional perks like early access to the class schedule, discounted retail, and the ability to bring a friend for free once a month. Plus, members get exclusive discounts from Solidcore's brand partners, including Liquid I.V., Milk Makeup, Celsius, Daily Harvest, and Heyday. There's even Solidcore merch, like this large Solidcore tote bag ($40) available to shop.

Additional Solidcore Costs to Keep in Mind

There are no additional costs to taking a Solidcore class, but you can purchase water, Celsius drinks, and a towel for an additional fee at each studio. Grippy socks aren't required for class, but they may be worth the investment if you have sweaty feet or are worried about slipping during class.
