CORE+ launches first franchised studios in Melbourne

CORE+ launches first franchised studios in Melbourne
June 25, 2018

With plans to grow its network to 30 facilities over the next three years across Australia and New Zealand, CORE+ has unveil three new studios in the Melbourne suburbs of Hawthorn East, Port Melbourne and Preston.

With a belief that well-being stems from the core, CORE+ founder Amy King has created her innovative results-based fitness studio classes to offer a fusion of the best elements of yoga, Pilates and functional movement from around the globe.

From Hot Pilates and Kettlebell Yoga, to Guns Buns + Tums, Barre Fusion and its signature Athletic Reformer Pilates classes, the fast growing boutique group fitness studio brand prides itself on offering  something different, with a commitment to innovation, inspiration, energy and authenticity at its core.

With five studios in its network, the others being in Richmond and Malvern East, King is committed to providing a challenging and innovative fitness and wellness alternative, explaining “CORE+ isn’t a gym and it isn’t a yoga studio.

"We are expert fitness curators, combining the best elements of yoga, Pilates and functional training via a diverse range of classes that get real results.”

An experienced practitioner with a wealth of knowledge gained internationally from multiple styles of yoga, Pilates and anatomy training, King adds “our goal is to create smarter, more balanced, results-based fitness classes that work on both the body and mind.

“We believe taking a little time to connect with your body and mind helps create the resilience we need to get the most out of life.”
