The Core Connection is a fitness gym with Pilates, Yoga, Cardio and Sport Training. There is one gym located in Northborough, Massachusetts. We found no DVDs or online workout videos, so only local dieters can take advantage of the studio. The Core Connection official website includes contact information and biographies on the studio instructors.

Product Features

Rita Matraia, the founder of the Core Connection gym, is a Certified Personal Trainer. She chose to start the Core Connection as a means of balancing work and life. She has a background in business and exercise, so running the gym is the ideal situation.

The Core Connection focuses heavily on Pilates and Yoga. There are several instructors in both categories, including a male Yoga instructor that is 6’2” tall and 230 pounds. The idea is not to perform Yoga perfectly, but to feel the power of Yoga while burning a few calories in the process.

The Core Connection is a personally owned gym. There are no franchises and no higher ups to change rules, workouts and classes on a daily or weekly basis. The company does not have to promote anything other than a great workout experience, and that they accomplish with a long list of classes and personalized workouts.

Classes at the Core Connection include boot camp cardio, group training, cardio Pilates, beginner PT and more. There is a definite focus on Yoga with ten Yoga classes, including Big Guy Yoga and Heated Vinyasa Flow. The Core Connection is not a full-time gym. The instructors are busy with their “other” lives and the work / life balance so the gym is open only a few hours, three days a week. Workouts are held on Mondays from 10:00 AM until noon, Thursdays from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM and Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM. The hours may change depending on personal and trainer schedules.

No prices for the Core Connection gym or classes are posted on the official website.
