Ann-Marie Giglio, Founder and CEO
I had my first child just before my 37th birthday. What? But get this, the second didn’t come until I was nearly 45. Whooza. Within days of her birth, I was doing math. Lots of it. I figured out how old I’d be when she graduated from high school…then college…
And that’s what started me on the path to opening this studio. What I learned about health and fitness amazed me and I wanted to tell everyone about it! Getting the word out is what gets me up in the morning. My continuing education, multiple certifications, mind/body, bio-mechanical, and global approach form the foundation of the CoreMatters systems and are applied to everything we do. I am most excited to bring Z-Health, brain-based fitness, to our clients.
Marcus Adan, Certified Personal Trainer
I was born in Atlanta and was a very active kid, mostly playing outside. When I was in high school, I took a weight-training course and saw my basketball game improve. I was impressed by what the body could do from a performance aspect after training it. I took a gap year before college and discovered my passion for Exercise Science. I subsequently graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and certification from the American College of Sports Medicine as a Health and Fitness Specialist.
Since coming to CoreMatters, I have been following my passion for biomechanics and recently certified as a Strong First Giryra Kettle Bell Instructor. I have also obtained full certification as a Balanced Habits Certified Food Coach. I will begin my Masters degree program in Exercise Science this Fall. My goal is to help people move and feel better for life!
Shoshanna Friedman, Group Fitness Instructor
I was adopted at age 5 from Germany and lived as a child in New Jersey. I moved to Georgia about 26 years ago.
My specialties are yoga, aerobics/aqua, Pilates and weight resistance conditioning. My diversity and ambition give me ample venues to choose from in finding ways to approach most any problem. I also enjoy researching to learn what I don’t understand
At the end of a session, I hope my class or my client feels good about their efforts and is encouraged to continue. I enjoy my work and find great joy in helping others reach their fitness goals!
