Bellevue >Nancy Wallace Pilates
AWESOME WOrkOUT!!!! It was immediate start and stretching and strengthening!!! Half way thru the Joe's Towers class I could feel my body using muscle I didnt realize EXISTED!!! :)) Afterwards, I was full of energy, and wasnt sore, but felt great inside and out.
Taller = Happy.
My one year anniversary with Core allowed me to celebrate jeans that are 6 sizes smaller, better posture, better flexibility, strength and attitude.
My best tip: engage your lats! It really helps me connect my shoulders to my core and not allow my shoulders to take over!
I've been going to Core Pilates for the past 3 years, and it has completely changed my outlook on exercise. Pilates is a lifestyle - and a good one at that. I love the instructors (who, by the way, are classically trained Pilates instructors - no trendy stuff going on here!). Each of them brings a perspective that enhances my overall health, whether it be in regards to nutrition, how I carry myself, or my core strength, the ideas carry me through each week. I highly recommend this studio.
Core pilates has been a part of my workout routine for over a year and a half. I was looking for a place to go that did not feel like a gym, did not have an attitude and where I could make significant gains in strength and flexibility which I have.
My experience with instructors and with classes has been wonderful and I would highly recommend Core to anyone.
What I tell most people about Core Pilates is this, I always feel better walking out then I did walking in. What more can someone ask for?
Extreme Sports Guy Loves Pilates.
In recent years I have turned to Pilates to help reverse the damage from mountain biking, motor-cross, hiking, and the other extreme sports I was doing outside. A few years back I thought my days on the bike were over because of a really bad shoulder injury. Desperate I started taking Pilates and since then I have not only recovered 110% but I am actually stronger, increasingly more flexible, and my core is in the best physical condition of my life. I was the last person wanting to commit to a weekly routine and now, I tell every knuckle head I meet that this stuff is definitely not just for girls! I wanted to take a couple of minutes to say thank you to Nancy and Raquel for the great workouts and education over the last two weeks while I was in Seattle for work. I am completely pumped to take what I have learned back to my local studio and challenge them to focus more on my technique and advancing the exercises. I have no doubt if I were to live here in the Bellevue area you would see me everyday just so I can get my Pilates fix! Let’s hope for more work up in the Northwest and good luck to the Core Pilates team.
Best workout EVER!.
10 months ago, I joined Core Pilates desperate to find something to strengthen my core and alleviate my lower back pain. What I found was a whole new way of life. Exercise had always been somewhat of a chore to me and after having three kids, I just couldn't seem to find the time to fit it in with any sort of consistency. I was amazed at how quickly I became consumed with Pilates. I started thinking about it all of the time (mostly because I was trying to figure out what the heck they meant by "scoop my stomach in and up"). I began practicing in the car, at home washing dishes, laying in bed at night. It felt like I was learning a foreign language and I couldn't get enough of it. I started thinking more about what I was eating all day long, not in the sense of dieting, but in preparation for my workouts later in the day. I didn't want to have too full of a stomach, but I also wanted to have enough energy to get through the routine. My diet naturally improved and without much effort.
The instructors at CORE were amazing helping me understand the different exercises and engage muscles I hadn't felt in ages. Before I knew it, inches started melting away. My back pain was gone. And as I got better at the exercises, they became harder. That's the beautiful thing about Pilates, it's such a self-journey. There's always room for improvement. It never gets old. The instructors at CORE are meticulously trained to know whether you are performing the movement correctly and how to adjust you to help you get the very most out of your workout. I have never been happier with a workout program. The trainers here are worth every penny!
Recently, I started going to their Kangoolates clases. And just like when I first started doing Pilates, I feel a little bit like a fish out of water, wondering if I'm going to fall flat on my face in the rebound boots. But there's something there. Something magical and when I'm done, I feel lighter in my shoes (probably because I have just sweated my toosh off!) and I can tell that if I stick with it, I'm going to be hooked, just like I am with Pilates.
Great place for a man to do pilates. I finally went to Core Pilates after several years of thinking about adding something else to my exercise routine and I could not be happier. I chose this studio after getting 3 referrals from business colleagues, 2 men, 1 women. While most customers are women they have definitey made me feel comfortable. I have found the instructors to be of high quality across the board, and they allow me to go at my own pace which is probably a bit slower than average. The biggest surprise I have had is how much Pilates is doing to improve my strength and conditioning workouts. Turns out that many of the Pilates principles can be applied to helping me with lifting weights and other forms of conditioning. I can not more highly recommend this studio, especially if you are a man looking for a new challenge.
I love Core Pilates.
I love Core Pilates!
I have been going for a few years now and each session is always a good experience.
All of the instructors genuinely care and the studio really feels like a family to me. It's very mellow and inviting. Over the past months I have been working with Raquel and she is awesome - I feel like I always get a great work out and I can actually see results.
Definitely recommend Core Pilates on Main Street - it's the best.
Best Return for Time and Money.
Skimming the other 5 star ratings for Core Pilates I found myself shaking my head in agreement. This is a great workout and far more effective than my lifetime routine of 3 weight training/3 cardio workouts over the past 20+ years.
The instructors are the best. Their focus on you and your objectives is confirmed in your results. Personally, they exceeded my expectations and exceeded the results I've had with any other trainer. I've gained strength, improved my posture, lost inches where I wanted, and met and maintained my ideal weight since joining 4 months ago.
Great studio, great workout, great staff!!!
Great instructors, great vibe, great studio..... I
