Address All Aspects of Wellness

C.O.R.E. Personal Training & Pilates Studio offers an integrated training approach that encourages clients to explore all avenues of lifetime fitness — blending traditional weight lifting, functional training, cardiovascular training, Pilates, and yoga. Our goal is to address all aspects of wellness including fitness, nutrition, and stress reduction.






Pilates is a mind-body exercise system that can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels, and performs. Through fewer, more precise movements, Joseph Pilates believed in the mind-body connection essential to total body conditioning. Pilates uses the core principles of correct alignment, centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing, and flowing movement to establish a perfect working body from the inside out. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned practitioner, Pilates can help you re-center, focus your energy, and concentrate on your wellness. Private and Group available.


Utilizing TRX suspension trainers, heart rate monitors, battle ropes, kettlebells, Free weights, Stability balls, BOSU, and much more, our Functional Fitness clients enjoy a full-body workout designed to improve mobility, strength, and agility for all ages and levels. Functional Training conditions your body to perform daily tasks such as pushing, pulling, rotating, lifting, stepping, sitting, walking, kneeling, crawling, jumping, and squatting. Want to have the mobility and strength to pick up a child? Want to perform any sport at your best? Functional training can do that for you. Private and Group available.
