Corestar Testimonial By Nichole McBride
The amazing staff at Corestar Pilates has helped me transform my body from unhealthy and flabby to strong and lean. I was the typical workaholic that didn’t make time for my personal fitness or health. I was working long hours, five to seven days a week and became depressed. Like many of us, my job is sedentary; I drive a desk all day long. Over the course of five years I packed on thirty pounds and lost the ability to sit-up straight due to the lack of stomach muscles. I knew I had to do something about my lifestyle and poor body image. My office is located in downtown Auburn and I had driven passed the Corestar Pilates studio hundreds of times, wondering what it was like inside. One morning my worst fear came true and I could no longer fit into one of my favorite suits. I thought, “That is it, I’m done just working”. In my tight, size 14 pants I made the five minute walk from my office to the studio. I’ll be totally honest and tell you I was scared to death, but my fear was gone the moment I opened the studio door. I was met with a warm smile and was given a tour of the studio. The next day was my first private instruction session with Lisa, and the beginning of my transformation. That was eight months ago. I am at the studio Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays. I do a mix of private sessions, mat classes and the amazing TRX. With hard work, dedication and the positive encouragement of Lisa I have gone from a size 14/16 to a size 8/10. Not only am I smaller, but I am stronger. I don’t have pain in my neck and shoulders that I did months ago, and my arms no longer resemble bat wings. I have a waist and glutes! I never thought I could ever have a rear-end. My own mother told me I would need to buy a butt because I couldn’t build one. Well, she hadn’t met Lisa. The family of instructors at Corestar Pilates truly cares about your health and happiness. Corestar helped me realize my dreams of being healthy and happy. I only wish I would have made the five minute walk to the studio years ago. I have to thank Corestar and Lisa for the amazing support, encouragement and let’s not forget those glutes!
