Core Concepts Pilates and Wellness – A Clarence Gem

Ever wonder about the interesting studio on Main Street in Clarence called Core Concepts Pilates and Wellness (9055 Main Street)?  You know, the one with the cute figure on the sign  – not far from Sheridan?  Well, it is a great locally owned and operated boutique fitness studio and wellness center offering Pilates, personal training, massage, reiki, group fitness and physical therapy. 

Owners Julie Oldenski and Trish Naffky are the incredibly gifted and well educated fitness professionals who will change your life!  At very reasonable rates, they will tailor your fitness regime so that you can live your best life.  Working with them, you will feel healthy, energetic and well balanced.  

This studio offers personalized private and small group sessions by appointment only.  Unlike some large, intimidating gyms, Core Concepts offers a welcoming environment to individuals of all ages and at all fitness levels.  Julie, Trish and all the trainers are very sensitive to your needs and strive to promote your well being and accommodate your schedule.  The studio is extremely clean and strictly adheres to all Covid regulations.

When asked what makes Core Concepts so special, Julie said “we have experience at every level of the fitness spectrum, from elite athletes to special client populations, such as pregnant women, people with metabolic disorders and clients in their post-rehabilitation phase.”

From this writer’s perspective, I’ve experienced almost everything that Core Concepts has to offer.  My personal favorite is their semi-private Pilates classes.  You simply must try Pilates on a reformer to know how great, strong and well stretched your body can feel!  There is nothing like it!  

If you are curious about what Pilates is, here is an official definition:  Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s.  

But, the best way to learn about Pilates is to give it a try!

Would you like to give a true gift this holiday?  Consider a gift (certificate!) for a healthier lifestyle or for a fantastic massage.  Need some Covid relief?  Honor yourself with a session at Core Concepts.  Take care of yourself because you deserve to feel this good!
