Welcome to Core Athletica® Pilates Studio

We are a full-service Pilates studio located in Ankeny, Iowa.

We offer a variety of classes and private trianing to meet your individual needs. Our classes are designed to help you strengthen and tone your body, improve your posture, increase your flexibility, and improve how your body feels.

Our goal is to help you live the active life you love, without pain!

This is why we are also offering sauna sessions + detox programs. This is a great way to help enhance the results of your movement practice, healthy eating habits, and help you get to the root cause of low energy, digestive issues, and more.

We are exposed to an extreme amount of toxins daily and learning how to detoxify the right way, along with our movement techniques can change your life for the better!

At Core Athletica®, our instructors are very experienced and have the best training to help modify any movements during each class to best suit your individual needs. Classes are appropriate for all ages and fitness levels, no experience required, we will teach you.

We look forward to helping you reach your fitness + health goals!
