Owner and CEO of Solidcore fitness studios Anne Mahlum took to Facebook recently to rebuke Ivanka Trump's allegedly attending her gym under an assumed name.
Solidcore has multiple locations in the Washington D.C. area, and is reportedly former first lady Michelle Obama's favorite gym. After news that President Trump's daughter Ivanka attended Solidcore under a false name, Mahlum responded in a criticizing manner.
"What you do when you find out Ivanka Trump just took [solidcore], but used an alias to sign up for class? You reach out and ask for a meeting," Mahlum wrote on Facebook. "While I don't know her and I always seek to understand...I do know her father is threatening the rights of many of my beloved clients and coaches and as a business owner, I take my responsibility to protect and fight for my people very seriously."

The CEO then responded with a press statement.
"I am extremely proud of the inclusive community at [solidcore] that respects everyone's age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or otherwise, and it is my key priority to protect that community. As I said in my Facebook post, I do not know Ivanka, but I welcome the opportunity to open up the communication channels, and I hope she takes me up on my offer," she said.
