Rave Reviews

"Core Pilates NYC is a fantastic Pilates studio with state of the art equipment, experienced and professional teachers, and has challenging classes for the Pilates student ranging from beginner to advanced. The teachers stem from a classical background but bring a contemporary spirit to class. I always feel a great mind/body connection during my classes here, and my body has seen positive changes because of it."

A Word From Our Founder, Michelle Fama

Hi, I’m Michelle Fama, founder and creator of Core Pilates NYC. I launched the flagship Core Pilates NYC studio in 2002, and since then, Core (as it’s now known) has grown to be one of the city’s most beloved studios and one of the most respected names in Pilates teacher training worldwide. 

I was first introduced to Pilates as a student at NYU and then later, it kept me toned and in shape as an overseas journalist and educator in sub saharan Africa, and globe-trotting travel author. I left my journalism career and combined my love and knowledge of Pilates, story-telling, branding and education to create the force that is Core. Today, myself, my team of world class instructors, teacher training faculty, and hundreds of CPNYC certified graduates share the magic and transformative power of Pilates all over the world. I’d love you to join us!
