Pilates on the Patio at Poste this Fall


I’ve tried the barre method, but can’t say I’ve ever worked out in a bar. Unless you consider the worm a core strengthening exercise and the sprinkler a bicep burner.

But that may have to change now that Poste Moderne Brasserie is featuring “Pilates on the Patio,” a 45-minute mat class taught by instructor Chauna Bryant. Sessions are Saturdays at 10 a.m. from September 15 – October 6 and cost $19, which includes a free glass of bubbly. Note: the bottles pop afteryou finish the class, so make sure to hydrate before and keep your eye on the prize when you’re counting down those reps.

I think this class needs a fit crasher review, don’t you? Follow me on Twitter @dcfitcrasher to find out when I’m going and stay tuned for a full review!

hello world

Hi there! I’m Meaghan, the fitness fanatic behind DC Fit Crasher.

This website chronicles my sweat and spandex infused misadventures as I attempt every workout DC has to offer. From pilates and pole dancing, to down dogs and dead lifts…I’m ready to try it all.

But before we get started, I thought I’d share a few points about my fit crashing credentials:


started year round swim team at the tender age of 4

 donned spandex and glitter for my Olympics-themed 7th birthday party

dabbled in dance, diving, skiing, tennis, and cross country

swam during high school and college

co-founder and women’s captain of collegiate triathlon team

competed in USA Triathlon collegiate national championships

began love/hate relationship with weekly hot yoga

ran 26.2 miles. tried it again. and again. ouch.


And now, I’m taking on DC’s fitness scene.

 Join me as I share the good, the bad, the ugly and the hilarious of working out in the district.
