My Client Reviews

I’ve been working with Deanna for nearly 4 years. We have had so much fun. She’s a practically perfect human being. We work on Pilates, aerobic conditioning and balance. I’m 65 and these targeted workouts have made a huge difference in my health and activities of daily living. They make it easy to keep up the swimming and hiking that I like to do. Highly recommended.

I have been working with Deanna at Activcore for several years now, pivately and in semi-private classes.  Also, I have had physical therapy with Elizabeth. I can't say enough good things about both. Their knowledge and professionalism are second to none. All employees are committed to a safe environment during the COVID times, starting with Amber who welcomes you at the front desk. If in person class isn't in your comfort zone, check out various instructors on line in virtual classes. They are awesome as well.

We are taking a ZOOM pilates class with Deanna. We miss seeing her in person but, as always, she does a great job keeping us motivated. She is always trying something new and she keeps a careful eye on us to make sure we are doing the exercises properly. I always look forward to our class! It lifts my spirits in these difficult times!
