The owner of a D.C. gym took to her Facebook account recently to complain about reports she was receiving that first daughter Ivanka Trump took a class at her facility under an assumed name, the Washington Examiner reported Thursday.

“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,” wrote Ms. Mahlum, owner and CEO of the Solidcore chain of fitness studios, including five within the District of Columbia.

“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,” she added.

Some commenters on Ms. Mahlum’s defended Ms. Trump, who moved to Washington with her husband to aid in her father’s administration.

“She probably has to use aliases because of bullies and freaks like yourself calling her out,” wrote one woman in response. “Also many celebrities and politicians also use aliases- all Very normal not to alert media and cause chaos at a place of business.”

Another woman asked, “Do you do this with all your clients? Call them out publicly, ask for their personal political opinions before you accept them as clients? smh.”

It’s unknown how Ms. Trump may have first been introduced to Solidcore, but on her official profile at the Solidcore website, Ms. Mahlum boasts having had former first lady Michelle Obama as a client.
