STUDIOS FUSE STORY

ANDREA METCALF

FOUNDER STUDIOSFUSE

 OWNER OF HANG 5 FITNESS & RESONATION YOGA

CELEBRITY FITNESS EXPERT

I started Studios FUSE after seeing how amazing concepts like WeWork, Phoenix Salon Suites, and other co-working spaces were functioning. Sharing common areas and giving consumers a healthy lifestyle community space to hang out, chill out, workout and celebrate friends was my goal.

Studios FUSE is an amazing collection of boutique fitness studios with expert owners who share a passion for helping people look, live and feel their best.

 

"The California lifestyle has given me the inspiration to create Hang 5 Fitness.  Just thinking about the California sunshine gives me the strength, energy and nourishment my soul needs to unplug, align and be fully balanced in my life. With more than 35 years in the fitness industry, I am grateful to share my experiences.
 

"As I am getting older, I understand the importance of staying active and quieting the mind with a sense of adventure. The surfboards provide that core foundation for balance. The barre aides in alignment and posture.  Blend in Yoga which pushes and pulls the muscles of the body to become lean then all you need is a little chill  time to unplug."​

Andrea has had more than 500 TV appearances including, NBC Today Show, Steve Harvey, GMA, CBS, WGN, NBC, and FOX Chicago as well as a contributor to Oprah.com, More Magazine, Reuters Health Report among others and a best-selling book, "Naked Fitness", VanGuard Press.
