Curve_Adam Sprint_backDebuted in January 2016, SculptHouse is the only studio of its kind offering fitness programing using the Megaformer, a fullbody strength and conditioning machine with adjustable color-coded springs, resistance bands and a sliding platform, as well as the NFL-endorsed Woodway Curve treadmill.

With many miles under my own treadmill belt, I couldn’t imagine that machine without a motor, so I met Katherine Mason, the brainchild behind SculptHouse and its programming, for a sneak peek of her state-of-the-art Buckhead studio — not to mention, this treadmill entirely controlled and powered by an individual’s pace on a patented, curved running surface.

Gone are jarring, high-impact workouts resulting in injuries, sore muscles or plateaued performances. Mason and her trainers are bringing maximum results in minimal time with a focus on long, lean muscle tone achieved in classes tailored to suit guests’ specific needs.

CardioSculpt, SculptHouse’s signature workout, combines 25 minutes of intense cardio intervals on the Woodway Curve treadmill with 25 minutes of Megaformer strength training, while the Strength- Sculpt class uses the Megaformer to deliver endurance, cardio, core, balance and flexibility training with each and every move for a 50-minute total body burn.
