“with lots of windows, a great view and lots of natural light!”
“The environment is fresh, the view of the Empire State Building lit up at night makes me realize why I'm in NYC in the first place, and I leave my workout feeling rejuvinated - worked hard, yes - but always coming back for more.”
“The trainers are very friendly and I really look forward to my workouts.”
Not a good teacher training studio.
The manager of this place (Core Pilates) is very mean.
In the comprehensive course at Core Pilates they treat you like you owe them something even though you pay them a lot of money to be there. They make you feel like you are in like you are in high school again and they don't respect you.
If you want to get a head in the apprentice course @ Core Pilates you have to be friends with the owner. A few of the 'favorite' apprentices get to become studio teachers overnight even though they have not completed all the stages - they basically jump ahead of all the other hard working and talented students that don't suck up to the owner.
Great and frequent pilates classes. The folks here are serious teachers and they also have a sense of humor. The studio is light and airy, the classes are frequent, and the overall atmosphere is great. I love Core Pilates NYC.
Great teachers, but.....
I recently joined this studio. So far, I am impressed with the teachers. They provide the mats and filtered water, which is great!
The space is lovely, though it can get a bit crowded at times. Also, since there are multiple sessions going on, it can get distracting with all the talking. I wish they had some music just to level out the voices, also it would be calming. I've taken a mat class there and in the next room there are semi-private/private sessions going on and they talk really loudly. I know it's not just me because I heard my teacher complaining that she could not hear herself talk. Also, not crazy about some of the administrative staff, they talk and make noise during the sessions and one of them is rude.
I'm not sure if I will continue here, I really like the level of teaching, but the distractions can be really frustrating.
The Core Pilates NYC studio is indeed a busy place. The studio received recent press regarding celeb trainings at the studio and partly due to that and the popularity of our classes it's been a full house. We are so pleased you found the teachings stellar and are most disappointed that the studio experience was distracting. We know certain times are busier than Grand Central at rush hour and have limited class size so not to disturb private or semi-private sessions going on in the next room. What sets us apart from other studios is the experience, the vibe, and the teachings as you discovered. While some love the energy, others like yourself do not. We will do all we can to take your comments seriously and are appreciative of the feedback.
Our new studio director who sits behind the desk is wonderful as is our newest team of workstudy apprentices. We hope you have come back and if so please feel free to share your comments.
Made easy to motivate through organized booking system and great location.
I've heard good things about this studio when they had their branch in Los Angeles and I was excited to see that they offered purchasing and self-scheduling online -- which was great for me while traveling in the city on business doing late hours. The system is very easy and straightforward and a great introduction to how easy and straightforward and CHALLENGING the teachers and overall feel of the studio is. Just wish they had a shower. But I truly felt Pilates in my body during the tower class and understood more than I ever had before what core means and what Pilates can do.
It seems like a true community there -- regulars and lots of guys (which means I can get my husband there).
I love it and am excited that every session in my tower package has been so worthwhile and fun to attend!
Tower class is our most popular class and the consistent wait-list to get in seems to spark interest even more. The Tower as you experienced really does get one in touch with their alignment, weaknesses and strengths and improves all of the above while stretching. We hope you would consider moving on to a private or semi-private session to experience the other apparatus. Classical Pilates is meant to be integrative so it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on some Tower exercises that you would do on the Chair or Reformer. Thank you for your commitment to CPNYC and keep the suggestions and comments coming.
i went to core pilates for the first time last week and thought it was everything people have been saying. the trainers were excellent at what they do. i am very active and was surprised to discover a whole new group of muscles in my "powerhouse". the staff is helpful matching you with an istructor - they make great suggestions.
the starter kit is a great way to get started.
a workout with a view. Great selection - from group mat classes to semi-private or private classes. They've got something for everybody's budget. Friendly, thoughtful trainers cater their classes to your specific needs. Friendly, easy, and helpful scheduling. Beautiful space on the 9th floor (away from the noise of traffic!) with lots of windows, a great view and lots of natural light! Great workout and great vibe!
long time fan. great studio. really loved the flexibility and the attention from the teachers. highly recommended! i've been taking classes there for a very long time and i am always impressed with the level of attention and creativity.
Pilates Professionals. As a pilates enthusiast and instructor I highly recommend Core Pilates NYC to anyone at any level. The group classes cater to all mat levels and private appointments can be made from early am to late pm. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The studio is quaint and flooded with natural light. Overall this is an excellent place to lose yourself for an hour.
