I live in San Francisco and spent the two weeks before my wedding in New Jersey. During those two weeks I sent an email to the address listed on their site. Within minutes I received a response back from Pam including pricing and availability and welcoming the opportunity to work with me on such short notice and only for a few days. I must have seemed like a snob. My email to them expressed that I was at an advanced level and really was familiar with all that Pilates had to offer and that I just needed to maintain what I thought was a good figure (as told to me by my current instructor who I worked with through Equinox – not a cheap habit).
Since I had a goal in mind I was determined to work hard in order to look great at my wedding. I will be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect since I thought that my current pilates routine back in San Francisco was the only way. My first session with Cindy made me leave there saying to myself – there really is so much more to pilates than what I have been used to for the past 6 months! It was incredible that I stumbled upon this studio and thought that it wasn’t going to provide me with what I wanted. Khore had MORE than I knew. Machines I have never seen before and in mint condition! If I could go there two times a day – I would! If I lived around the area, I would be there every day.
The studio is clean, organized, the machines are in great condition, the instructors are friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable! I was sore each day following my workout. Cindy worked me out to a point I didn’t even realize I had in me! During those 2 weeks I had 4 dress fittings – the last one being just three days before my wedding. They had to take my dress in more and more each time in the waist. I swear – I wasn’t nervous, I ate at least 3 substantial meals per day, and that was the result! I felt AMAZING at my wedding! Being a swimmer most of my life and having a larger chest, I always had a tendency to slouch and round my shoulders. My spine was straight, my posture was perfect, and I stood tall and proud as I walked down that aisle! I was a FIT bride!
I now am back in San Francisco and looking for a new pilates studio. One that has the same qualities as Khore. Khore is now my standard and my new studio must exceed my expectations – the high one that Khore has showed me is the correct way.
I am 27 – consider myself to be pretty athletic, workout almost every day, and this place really knows what they are doing. I wish I could bring Cindy and the studio to San Francisco!
Dear Frank and Pam,
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank both of you so much for providing the Khore experience. I have been attending classes at Khore for four years and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I truly appreciate the high quality of the instruction and the positive energy that emanates from your first class instructors. Since October, I have been attending The Barre Routine with Cindy and Kim about three times per week. The results are amazing and I can actually see “the needle” moving. I have dropped two clothing sizes and have never felt better. After a recent physical, I learned that my 48 year-old blood pressure is that of an athlete in training, and I credit Cindy and Kim for those results. They both keep the class high energy and are always pushing me to challenge myself by taking my personal fitness to the next level. As a former ballet dancer, I certainly appreciate the attention to correct form and always know that I’m not going to get hurt as I continue to extend my fitness goals. What is impressive is that the studio has such a relaxed, comfortable and noncompetitive vibe, that I truly look forward to working out and consider The Barre Routine an integral part of both my physical and mental well being.
Thank you so much for giving me the gift of great health!
I was looking something new which could help me get in shape and I heard about Khore and the “pilates” classes. At the beginning I was skeptical but I tried and after the first class I was so happy that I was looking forward the next session!!!
Pamalla, the owner, is very professional. She listens to your needs and helps you reach your goals, encouraging you to push yourself beyond your limits. The place is clean, quite and inspiring. There are a variety of machines as well as other equipment that focus on toning specific areas of the body.
Overall I am very content with the classes, and the results. I also encouraged my teenage daughters to go, who were equally content and eager to return every week.
