I'M NEW TO THIS. AM I GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO IT?
Yes. CoreStrong is a place for everyone from beginners to advanced athletes. Please inform your instructor if you are new, have any injuries or just need a little extra t.l.c. Our instructors are there to help you each step of the way as you learn and adapt to our workouts. Remember that you have to start somewhere - why not start with our expert trainers there to help you?
Honor your body. Compete with no one. Be proud of yourself.
DON'T I NEED TO BE "IN-SHAPE" TO DO THIS?
Not at all. We offer a non-intimidating, non-judgmental environment so you can learn how to work your body safely and effectively. Yes, our classes are challenging, but there is always a way to adapt the workout to what your abilities are at any given time. CoreStrong is a community of people that are proud of each other and there to support you - always. Those worries that you'll hold someone back or look silly if you can't keep up are just mind noise. Make changes, not excuses.
DO I NEED A PRIVATE SESSION FIRST?
It's up to you. We do not require private sessions before joining our group classes, but we are more than happy to spend some time with you so you feel comfortable and confident. Contact us by e-mail and we will set you up with one of our trainers for a private session. Single private sessions are $60 and last for 40 minutes.
THIS LOOKS DIFFERENT THAN A REGULAR PILATES STUDIO, WHAT IS IT?
True. We are not a "pilates" studio. Our classes at CoreStrong include the amazing core-building and muscle lengthening principles of Pilates but with an added metabolism boosting and fat burning kick! Your Pilates knowledge will help you in all of our classes but you certainly won't need a Pilates background to enjoy the benefits of our classes.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
• Please bring a water bottle with you to class. We offer water filling stations for you to refill as you need but we do not sell plastic water bottles.
• Grip socks are helpful in class and required. We sell them at the studio for your convenience.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
The most important thing is to be comfortable while you workout. With that said, clothing that is too baggy or lose will get tangled in our equipment and will be distracting to you. We also request no perfume or fragrances due to the allergies of some of our clients.
