Exhale, New York City, will expand by three locations by early 2016 to bring its national footprint to 29 locations in 10 markets.
The company announced the Atlanta, New York and Evanston, Illinois, studio-only locations in a news release on Tuesday. Exhale said the locations will be "all about boutique fitness" and will feature the brand's Core Fusion classes.
Consulting firm DLDT Associates LLC, Atlanta, is directing exhale's real estate development. DLDT founding principal David Cochrane has personally guided the expansion of exhale's portfolio over the past four years in site selection, lease negotiation, store design and construction, the company said.
Exhale was founded in 2002 by Annbeth Eschbach and offers fitness classes, spa and healing therapies. Its programs include exclusive yoga and Core Fusion programs, including Core Fusion Barre, Barre+Cardio, Boot Camp, Cardio, Extreme, Sport or Yoga.
Here are the details of the new exhale locations:

The Inman Quarter development is a new mixed-use residential, retail and restaurant development. Exhale Inman Park is set to open October 2015.
