After spending 15 years in the music industry and burning the candle at both ends in both New York and Los Angeles, Lisa Hirsch (now Solomon) realized she needed to make a career—and life—change. Lisa had always been a workout fanatic, but it was when she discovered the Lagree Method that a light bulb went on. Inspired by how significantly the workout changed her physique (not to mention her stress level), she decided to leave the music world behind and launch The Studio (MDR) in 2011. Her goal was to create a place where clients felt comfortable and inspired to make their well-being a priority—even if for only 50 minutes a day. Almost immediately, a loyal community of regulars began to inspire and motivate each other, while at the same time creating a safe space for newcomers to feel welcome. A second location opened in the fall of 2014; a third location opened in Playa Vista in the spring of 2016; The fourth location ( & biggest yet) was opened in early winter of 2019 in downtown Culver. We invite you to come see what (MDR) is all about!
