Downtown fitness fiends who frequent the barre will have to wait another month for Pop Physique's playlist-powered workouts. Per a recent email blast, the Silver Lake-bred chain's derriere-sculpting studio at DTLA's PacMutual building is "opening late August."
As far as that location in Pasadena's stylish foodie-filled Indiana Colony, the soon-to-be-bicoastal barre studio tells a Pop superfan on Instagram that it'll open "soonish it's a race let's see who opens first"—but the cool complex tweeted a few days ago that a fall opening is expected.
