OUR TEAM

The group that can help you achieve your health goals.

Ann-Marie Giglio, Founder and CEO

I had my first child just before my 37th birthday. But get this, the second didn’t come until I was nearly 45. Within days of her birth, I started doing math. Lots of it. I figured out how old I’d be when she graduated from high school…then college…

Within a few years, I opened CoreMatters. The dream of creating good health–for everyone– led me to search for science-based answers to one question: How do we create the best health?  What I learned amazed me and I wanted to tell everyone about it!  Getting the word out is what gets me up in the morning.

My certifications, all mind/body, bio-mechanical, brain-based, and global in approach together form the foundation of every CoreMatters system. They include Certified AFAA/NASM Personal Trainer, AFAA/NASM Group Trainer, Z-Health Practitioner, Chi Running & Walking Instructor, Essentials of Injury Prevention, Pilates Mat Science, Obesity Challenges, Balanced Habits Nutrition Coach, Yoga Fundamentals, Bender Ball, Balletone, Strong First Kettle Bells, and more.

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. During a gap year before college, I discovered my passion for Exercise Science.  My degree from Georgia State University is a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science with 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 health.  I am now a Certified Strong First Giryra Kettle Bell Instructor.  I have also obtained full certification as a Balanced Habits Certified Food Coach.  My Masters degree program in Exercise Science at Georgia State is nearly complete.  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, moving to Georgia about 26 years ago.

My specialties are yoga, aerobics/aqua, Pilates and weight resistance conditioning.  Because of my diversity and ambition, I have 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!

Cheryl Henleben, Admin

I have been a Roswell resident for 18 years and thoroughly enjoy the downtown Roswell vibe.

Ann-Marie and I met several years ago when our kids ran cross country together at Roswell High School.  Shortly after she opened her first studio, I began helping out with the administrative tasks and 7 years later, I’m still here!  My background includes 11+ years in mid-level management with Marriott Corporation before taking some time off to spend with my children.

When I started the Small Group Personal Training, I could barely do any of the exercises.  Today, I am stronger, have more energy, sleep better, and am both more centered and balanced due to everything I have learned at CoreMatters!
