    I have been doing Pilates on and off since 1995. I must say that Claudio is a wonderful instructor with a vast knowledge of Pilates. His way of keeping classes fresh and challenging really help work all body parts and makes each class stimulating. I am so happy I found Claudio and Lithe Core. In addition, he is just a great guy!!!

    Claudio is a no nonsense individual. He is all about the business of giving his clients their money's worth. He starts on time and ends his classes on time. His explanations about each exercise are clear and the results that one obtains from one session is worth going back weekly. He is the BEST!

    My name is Gina Bell and I have been trained by Claudio for the past 3 years. I have been working out with various personal trainers and Pilates instructors for the past 10 years and I have to say that Claudio has done an AMAZING job with my body type. He listens to his clients and their needs. He also customizes his training sessions based on each client needs and is first priority is safety. I am very impressed that he is always continuing his education in fitness and keeping current with the trends in the fitness industry. I have referred several friends and people I know in the area to train with him. I have even referred my husband, my daughter, and even my 66 year old father. Claudio is a well respected trainer and I am happy to have him as my trainer!!!

    I have been taking reformer pilates with Claudio for almost 6 years. He is a great instructor. Always adding new and innovative techniques to his studio. Not only does he instruct you in pilates, but explains the whys to each exercise. Thanks to him I was able to get back into my pre pregnancy jeans! I feel the strongest I have felt in my life, thanks to Claudio and pilates!
