A new fitness studio with cutting-edge equipment and late-night classes will open near Southern Methodist University in early summer. Tight, a Lagree Fitness Studio, is taking a space at 6401 Hillcrest Ave., at the corner of McFarlin and Hillcrest, a hop-skip-and-jump from campus.

Park Cities Pilates devotees get something extra here: Tight will be home to Dallas’ first M3X Megaformer, a patented Pilates-based machine created by fitness visionary Sebastien Lagree. Each 50-minute session will follow The Lagree Method developed by Lagree.

"Popular with celebrities and athletes for rapid results, this high-intensity, low-impact workout stimulates core strength, cardiovascular endurance, balance and flexibility," the company says in a release. "Recommended for all fitness levels, The Method is performed on patented equipment that uses variable resistance and dynamic tension to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body."

Sessions will be offered daily and will even be tailored to accommodate clients with busy schedules, the company says. On select days, classes will take place at 7, 8, and 9 pm.

“Tight is a community vested in each other’s success and joined by a passion to make Park Cities a happier, healthier place," says founder Ginger Appleberry in a release. "It’s an honor to introduce Tight to University Park and serve the community I love."

Clients can expect a studio with a modern, sleek aesthetic, friendly front-desk greeters, and carefully orchestrated music and lighting to help them make the most of their workouts.

"There’ll be no flashy promises or one-size-fits-all attitudes," the company vows. "Instead, Tight offers guests more of what they want and less of what they don’t. And yes, that includes complimentary sticky socks during class, keyless lockers, and generous social spaces."

While an opening date has not been set, grand opening festivities will include a shoe drive for the homeless, with more charitable initiatives on deck, the company says. Visit their website, and subscribe to an email list to receive free classes, updates, and an invite to the VIP grand opening party, where one guest will win one year of unlimited classes.
