corecraft Testimonials: HERE'S what clients think of us!
"Since I’m a surgeon, I spend my working days bent over an operating table. Add to that some scoliosis, a love of golf and I live with a lot of back discomfort. What I appreciate about the workouts at Corecraft is the focus on so many muscles simultaneously. I am not just referring to the main abdominal muscles, but also my obliques and the deep muscles near my spine. No other workout offers me both the strengthening of my core, coupled with flexibility improvement. I appreciate how customized and fun they make it! I am so much more comfortable now and a loyal student! " Gil L. March, 2019
“Great workout! True Pilates Method, no imitation here. Claire is a great pilates instructor and trainer, very knowledgeable about fitness and how it relates to maximizing performance in sports, recovering and strengthening after injury and lifelong fitness! Sure, it’s challenging, but she is able to tailor the pilates reformer exercises to each person’s level so that everyone gets the most out of it." Mary R.
“I am happy to submit a corecraft testimonial! My athletic emphasis has always been on muscle strengthening and “bulking up”. Pilates reformer classes at corecraft have made a big difference in my core strength and flexibility: aspects of fitness which I had never focused on. You can really see the positive difference in my golf swing.” Terrell C.
"I have been going to Claire for 2 years. Great workout in a friendly environment with tailored instruction. I was referred to pilates reformer classes by a local neurosurgeon. Claire has helped me avoid additional back surgery by keeping my core in shape to support my back. I’m a big fan!" Allen M.
“I’m a pretty busy business executive and travel extensively. Claire’s studio is so conveniently located... Just great! I also love the terrific workouts that Claire puts together and her great knowledge base about the body. This makes her a great resource as we all try to stay in shape and take care of our bods!” Kathy T.
I started seeing Claire 8 years ago because I had chronic back pain. Through Claire’s pilates for men, my back pain has improved dramatically as well as my posture and core strength. I am now better at sports and hitting the golf ball 20-30 yards farther!” Gil L.
“I’ve been doing pilates training with Claire for about a year, and I have huge improvement in my low back. I met Claire through my golf group, and several of my golf friends also go to Claire. I’m not as strong or fit as some other clients, and Claire always finds an alternative exercise if something is too difficult for me. I like the relaxed atmosphere and the individual attention I get." Rhonda M.
"I've been working with Claire for a few months now and am loving this studio! It's in a great location and the classes are small enough that she's taken the time to understand my body and my fitness goals. If you're looking for pilates + personal training, definitely check Corecraft out!" Emily E.
"Claire is one of those gifted Pilates trainers who makes working out *not* feel like working out. I love that in an hour, I always feel like I was just chatting with a friend -- all while she guided me through a workout I could definitely feel the next day. She keeps things moving and introduces new things all the time, which keeps it interesting, all while strengthening and lengthening in all the right places. I definitely saw and felt a difference in my core strength in just three months. The other cool thing is the studio is very small and private -- nobody's watching. Totally recommend Claire and Corecraft." Shelly B.
"I wanted to increase my flexibility and strength. Claire was extremely helpful and knowledgable. She made the workout very personalized to my needs and goals. I feel healthier than I have in a long time and my running has improved significantly." Jacqualynn G.
"I have loved my time with Claire! I have been going for the past 3 years and have loved every class. I have found a workout that I truly enjoy; I look forward to each and every class. Claire is such a great teacher, I have learned a lot from her and feel myself getting stronger every day. I love the small class sizes (No more than 3 people). It feels like a personal training session with the encouragement of 1 or 2 other classmates. Claire pays special attention to each person and it has kept me coming back. The pilates reformer machine as well as the TRX may be a little intimidating at first, but after a few classes you will be a pro. Since starting I have gone from a size 8/9 to a 4/5. I can also see A LOT of definition in my arms, back, and chest. I am looking forward to the next few months to see more changes in my body." Kristina Q.
"I highly recommend Claire. I met Claire through my golf group,EWGA, and was curious about doing reformer pilates. I really like it as it focuses directly to the target areas such as core, back, hamstrings, arms, etc. It helps my flexibility for golf and other sports." Donna T.
Claire really does make it about me....Maximum number of people in class is three so there is very individualized training, feels like one on one training. I have been training with her for a couple of years and my flexibility has definitely improved. She is quick to compliment success and watches for proper form so that success can happen. I have been training weekly and will continue to do so. Wendy E.
I was referred to Claire Maund about 3 years ago since I was recovering from shoulder surgery. I needed someone to design a program for me which would help me strengthen but who would pay attention to me not doing too much. I have been training with her every week since and she has been great! Knowledgeable and personable and just what I needed! Highly recommend her and her studio. Love the new name! Joseph D.
Claire is an amazing fitness instructor! Walking into her studio was one of the best decisions I have made. I love that Claire's studio is small and intimate - at most there are only 2 other clients working out with me. I had always been active but a little on the shy side - I didn't like working out in front of people... that all went away when I started coming here. Claire always mixes up our routine but keeps the staples because they do WONDERS for your body! I have never been so toned, strong and flexible in my life. From TRX to Pilates on the reformer, I always look forward to my sessions here. This is definitely the one part of my fitness routine I will always maintain. Thanks, Claire! Allyson R.
Whether you are completely new to Pilates or you have taken it before, Claire will be sure to give you the workout you need. She is patient and kind, but very methodical in the way she teaches making sure that you are working out at the right capacity. I highly recommend this studio! Lydia W.
I just took my first pilates class at Corecraft. For a while I have been interested in pilates reformer and TRX but I am not into the "gym" environment. I was referred to this pilates studio by a friend of mine who was absolutely in love with the pilates workout she received from Claire. I went to the studio with high expectations of getting a good pilates workout and being guided by a great pilates instructor and that is exactly what happened. I loved the workout, I loved the instructor, and I especially loved the personalized atmosphere. I seriously felt like I was being instructed by my own personal pilates fitness coach throughout the entire workout. I highly recommend this jewel and while I would rather keep this san diego pilates studio to myself I have to share!!! Melissa S.
