Core Pilates was not a good experience at all. The manager and employees are really mean and they treat you like you owen them something. Also, Mat Classes are alway overbooked, at least 17 people even if the website says 15 (and also 15 are too many for that space). Almost impossible to excersise properly. The system to book online get stock often, and when it run again you find yourself booked in the wrong classes. No help for that
If you can afford a private class and if you can find one of the few good teacher they have (I'm a Pilates teacher also), it maybe works. Otherwise... forget it!!!

I attended the the teacher comprehensive course at this studio and it was not a good experience. Aside from the tuition, they require you to be there 4 weekends a months - it's obvious this is just dead time to pad out the hours of the course, so they can justify the high cost.

You are basically paying to have your own time wasted. What you can do in one day, they will stretch out over 4 days. They have some ridiculous methods of teaching @ Core Pilates - the anatomy class is particularly stupid - its basically the teacher reading out loud from an anatomy book.

Plus don't ever take any classes @ Core Pilates with Kim Villanueva (the owner), she is really mean and her teaching technique is really rough.

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

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.

I took a Pilates class at my old gym and hated it-I used to think pilates was just for women and dancers, but the benfits of combining pilates with my cardio is incredible.The staff is all female as well is most of the participants (which isnt a bad thing for me, mostly after getting a divorce..) and I was surprised to see a few other men in there with me (probably from the same reasons as mine...JUST making a joke !). Anyway great place! and pilates-definitely hard workout.
This place is recommended!!

I have been wanting to join a place to do Pilate's for a long time, but really didn't know where to go. I chose Core Pilate's, and I'm very happy I did. It's very affordable and the teacher's are great.

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.

Pros: Teachers, Space, Perks (water, mat)

Cons: Admin. Staff, Noise, No Music

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!

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.

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!

As a pilates enthusiast and instructor I highly recommend Core Pilates NYC to anyone at any level.

Overall this is an excellent place to lose yourself for an hour.

If having your workout in an amazing environment is important, you've got to check out Core. But it's the personal attention and great instructors that will keep you coming back time and again.

how helpful, how patient the staff; how non-stressful the regiment especially as I am a typical New Yorker w/ little time to add another day-to-day stop to my routine. Overall, Core Pilates' staff is the reason to go -- they are simply extremely inspirational and their enjoyment and enthusiasm of the process is contagious.

I've been training at Core Pilates for about 1 year. I'm 6 feet tall and when I started I was slightly overweight, weighing about 200 pounds. I'm now down to my target weight of 180 thanks to my training and a better diet. The trainers are very friendly and I really look forward to my workouts.

I am new to Pilates and now can't get enough of it. I am a runner and the workout enhances my training like I never thought it would. I am at the studio at least three times a week and all of the trainers are great. One is better than the next. I always get a challanging workout. I like having the variety of trainers that this studio has to offer. On top of that the view is gorgeous, so much light during the daytime and a great view of the Empire State Building at night.

Walking into Core Pilates NYC is liking suddenly breathing fresh air. Let's face it, the City can take a lot out of you. My visits to Core Pilates NYC is liken to a vacation - it's all about me! The instructors there make me feel like I can do anything. They are very warm and involved w/ their clients, and they have such interestingly diverse backgrounds. 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. By the way, I look fantastic thanks to Core Pilates NYC.

Core, is truly the best word to describe, the Pilates esperiance, at this fabulious Gym. The lighting, the mahognany flooring and the clean lines set the stage for a pure Pilates work out. Once you pass through the door you are enter in another world, and are assisted by a staff of instructors, who do credit to the Pilates style of teaching. A must do resolution for 2005.

Simply put: the most positive body experience I've had in a long time. I was about to give up on the Pilates "thing" after trying studios that range from clinical-feeling to simply unprofessional. I saw Core Pilates on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and the three women that own the place are truly fantastic--they don't just act like it on TV.

I just moved here and found this gem in the middle of Union Square. Wasn't getting good enough workout at other studios and after stickign with the teachers at Core, am challenged (and surprised) at every session. They stick to the true principles of Pilates too - so no weird mix of Pilates or strange unauthentic equipment. Definitely a place to feel good about.
