Powercore Pilates is a boutique studio located in Vienna, Virginia. We offer Classical Pilates as well as Personal Training and Strength Training workouts. We offer private, semi-private, and small group sessions to fit the range of your needs.
Our Philosophy
In 2008, Francesca founded Powercore Pilates studio as a boutique studio to prioritize the individual client experience. The private setting provides a peaceful and intimate experience to ensure focus and connection to mind, body and soul. Our core belief is training your mind and body. Pilates is the perfect exercise to build resilience. We prioritize alignment, so you gain postural awareness as you strengthen your body. The benefit of your Pilates experience starts on Day One, when you show up to class and say: “I want to improve myself.”
Everybody is unique at Powercore Pilates, but we are united in our commitment to mental and physical fitness. As a small, woman-owned business, we believe in supporting our community and local businesses. We develop close relationships with our clients because we listen to you. We create fitness plans for your wellness journey, while our group classes offer social workout, the opportunity to let loose and learn together.
