holds a strong belief in community, which is why they’re on a mission to create an inclusive experience. The workout studio originates from Chicago and has expanded to 27 locations across the United States, including one in the heart of Bellevue. Franchise owners Alice and Fadil Chosovich are determined to spread their community-oriented vision to the Downtown area.
“We’re more than just a workout," Alice Chosovich said. "The most important thing to Shred 415 is the community around us. This place is for all fitness levels”
Shred 415 Bellevue provides unique services that aren’t found at other fitness studios. Aside from the state-of-the-art treadmills, they offer childcare during certain classes for busy parents. Chosovich explained everyone deserves a healthy lifestyle, no matter how hectic life gets.
“We have parents from all over the Eastside that drive down to meet us," she said. "This is something extra we can provide to make their lives easier.”
The Chosovichs began their Shred 415 journey in Seattle. When they weren’t busy running their studio, they went to Bellevue for casual outings in the city. On one of their many walks around town, they saw an open space for lease. In December of 2021, Shred 415 found a second home in Downtown Bellevue.
“We had no plans to open a second location, but when we saw the space, it felt like everything just aligned perfectly,” Chosovich said. “We’ve always loved Bellevue, we’re excited to invite the community to work out with us.”
The Chosovichs have big plans for the future. Before the pandemic, Shred 415 used to host charity
classes for different organizations like the American Heart Association where they raised money for cardiovascular research and education. Another part of their community integration plan includes free classes in Bellevue's Downtown Park this summer.
“We’re growing every week in Bellevue," Chosovich said. "It’s exciting to be a part of the area, and we look forward to acquainting ourselves with the people and businesses around.”
