Comments on one of our newest programs – 21 Day Fat Loss Challenge…
“I thoroughly enjoyed your course for many reasons. I liked the fact that the class was small enough that we all got individualized attention as if we were doing one-on-one personal training. Especially important was your depth of knowledge, caring and consideration for our different ages, body challenges such as weak knees and ankles, and your gentle approach – no gym dudes! I also appreciated how you worked around our short falls (straying from the recommended meal choices, not doing our homework, etc.) and always offered a kind response so that we wouldn’t feel too guilty. I look forward to taking another 21-day Fat Loss Challenge soon.” Julie F.

Personal Training with Ann-Marie…
“Agreeing to sign up with CoreMatters was one of the best decisions I made a year before my wedding!. I wanted to look my very best for the big day. Ann-Marie asked what we wanted to focus on and helped my Mom and I achieve just that. She not only trained us in her studio but also provided us with at home workouts and nutritional guidance. The results I received were amazing and am so appreciative for everything Ann-Marie did for my mom and me.” Jeanette L. (Newlywed)
“I highly recommend CoreMatters to everyone who wants to strengthen their body and core, especially for women over 40. I have worked with several trainers over the past 20 years and I believe Ann-Marie is the most knowledgeable trainer I have ever worked with. Her understanding of anatomy, physiology and the human body is many levels higher than other trainers. She individualizes each client’s program to fit their unique needs and issues. I feel stronger and better than I have in several years and I credit Ann-Marie with my success. She is a great motivator, teacher, core trainer and professional woman. She is tops in her field!!!!!!” Maria T. (LPN)
I signed up for Personal Training at CoreMatters 4 months before the TransRockies Challenge–a 7-day, 600K mountain bike race in the Canadian Rockies. I had hoped that I could increase my core strength and alleviate the back pain I had experienced from being in the saddle for up to 8 hours at a time. The training at CoreMatters not only enhanced my back strength so it was not an issue during the TransRockies race, but also increased my overall riding capability and strength!” Brian K.
“I found the time I spent with you to be essential to understanding the mechanics of my body and helpful in staying motivated to keep training. Thank You” Pia E.(Water Aerobics Instructor)
CoreMatters is a private studio that provides a tranquil escape from the hustle of my daily routine. The expert guidance of Ann-Marie, along with the variety at CoreMatters has created a strong, toned, flexible body for me.” Susan W.
Chi Running and Chi Walking…
“You probably saved my knees! Everything you said made so much sense! Will incorporate the exercises and Chi Walking techniques gradually.” Anne Y.
“At 57, overweight and totally out of shape, I discovered that I had allowed myself to be talked into going to New York for the AIDS Walk – 6.2 miles! Major panic! Ann-Marie told me that with some training in Chi Walking, I would be able to finish the entire Walk. Not only was she right, I even went back and did it again the next year!
“When I think about why it was so effective, I have to say that it was a combination of the Chi Walking principles and the way Ann-Marie works. Treating everyone as an individual, with unique challenges, is what CoreMatters is all about and why I would not hesitate to recommend it.” Karen A.
“I took a core class from Ann-Marie for three years. During that time, she got her personal training certification, learned and trained me on Chi Running, and perfected her yoga and pilates instruction. She makes a tremendous effort to stay informed on changes in her field and is always finding ways to keep personal fitness fun and interesting. She was the person who first introduced me to the notion of ‘functional fitness’ - the fitness we all need to stay comfortable, fit and uninjured living our own lives. I really enjoyed her classes and was never more flexible than I was after taking them. Her classes are great fun, and Ann-Marie herself is fun and engaging. It’s a wonderful combination. Diane P.
““I have come to love yoga and truly miss it when I cannot attend class. Shoshanna is an inspirational and witty leader, and is obviously devoted to the practice and teaching of Namaste Yoga. If you have certain issues with your body (joint pain, overweight, inflexibility), Sho can find a way to adapt your exercises to your current condition. Her yoga classes will do your body good!” Cindy
“The core strengthening I received in Yoga and Pilates has improved my quality of life. The years of lower back pain are gone as a result of the concentration of core muscle development. At CoreMatters I was able to achieve a better connection and awareness of my body. Instructor knowledge combined with a welcoming environment has helped me achieve my health goals for a better future.” Robbin W. (2 year student)
