After nearly two years of confusion over whether or not it was closing, Michael Olajide and Leila Fazel’s famed fitness studio, Aerospace, is shutting its doors tonight.

Opening nine years ago, the studio, located on the swanky triangle of 13th Street in the Meatpacking District, was one of the first boutique fitness spots in the city. (Maybe the first, since it predated all the spin and barre studios around NYC—though not yoga studios, of course.)

Aerospace expanded from its boxing-centric group fitness method to include a whole series of signature classes, like AeroJump, AeroBarre, and AeroSculpt, and became famous as a go-to get-fit spot for supermodels.

Aerospace sent an email yesterday announcing the closing. “The lights at Aero Space W. 13th St. are finally shutting off. Nine years ago the first class at Aero Space was AeroBOX. Tomorrow, Wednesday 08/28, our last class could not be another class other than AeroBOX.”

Details on its new home are slim as of yet, but an individual who answered the phone at the studio reported that it would be reopening in a new space on 27th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenue in “a week or so.” Olajide said through a public relations representative that a new space is definitely opening in “September/October” but would not confirm an address.

If the intel on the Chelsea location is correct, it’ll be just a short subway ride away for current clients, who will likely be willing to travel to shadow box and jump rope with their beloved trainers. —Lisa Elaine Held
