Our Journey....

Core Chicago Pilates was started in 2002 as one of the oldest Pilates studios in Chicago. We began with just teaching private sessions and rapidly grew into a full service Pilates studio with Private and Duet instruction as well as a full group class schedule. 

Over the years we have developed a loyal following of clients as well as continuing to welcome new clients from all backgrounds. We work with professional athletes, "pre-hab" to prevent injury, post rehabilitation, pre-natal and post-natal, weight loss, and a whole host of other experience levels. 

We have a close team of trusted physical therapists, orthopedists and sports medicine doctors, massage therapists and acupuncturists that we work with to ensure a whole-body approach to reaching your best self.

Our team of instructors have all received a minimum of 450 hours of Comprehensive instruction before working with clients. From there, they continue to grow and receiving education to keep up with the changing research and developing fitness trends. 

We look forward to working with you and cannot wait to help you reach your goals!

In Good Health, 

Holly Swanson
