Let our experience, training, drive and genuine Passion for the Megaformer create the perfect workout for you.
Kimberly Holzmann-Krolick, FOUNDER
Kimberly discovered the benefits of the Megaformer (then called the Proformer) back in 2008 after having her second child. She was living in London and decided to sign up for a "Pilates" class at a studio around the corner from where we lived. She went to the class, thinking she was in reasonable shape, but left sweaty, shaking and wanting more, realizing this was anything but Pilates. Over the next few months, she became a regular at the studio and watched her body transform into a much stronger and leaner version of its former self.
A few years later, after moving to Katonah with her family, she sorely (pun intended) missed her workout so in January of 2013, after training in Los Angeles with Sebastien Lagree and his team, opened Corelab. It is her absolute pleasure to share this workout with you. She views it not as the "hot, new workout" (though it certainly is), but as the workout that will keep you strong and healthy for many years to come and will facilitate you in whatever else you do because of the amazing cross training benefits. Whether you ski, ride, run, cycle, or simply love to take classes, you will notice the difference if you add the Megaformer into your routine. Fitness and sports are a huge part of her life, and she truly believes the Megaformer workout should be an integral part of your wellness regime to help you to stay in optimal health throughout your life.
Kimberly is a Lagree Fitness certified instructor, an ACSM CPT, and a Level 1 USA Track & Field coach. Additionally, Kimberly is currently pursuing her certification in Restorative Exercise under biomechanist, Katy Bowman as well as taking pre-medical coursework through Johns Hopkins. In her spare time, Kimberly hikes, runs, bikes, swims, skis with her family and is a proud volunteer with RAINN.
A strong advocate of health and wellness, Jess discovered the Megaformer years ago while working in the counseling field and was immediately hooked.

Jess pursued her Lagree certification while pregnant with her daughter and has been teaching ever since.
Whether training new or experienced clients, Jess enjoys encouraging and challenging individuals to get stronger and meet their goals. She is a firm believer in the Megaformer’s cross training benefits and its ability to take one’s fitness to the next level. Through her classes, Jess strives to deliver a smart, safe and strong workout that will provide lasting health benefits for years to come.
A former barre fanatic and instructor, Carolyn strongly believes that you don't get the a** you want by sitting on the one you've got! The Megaformer, with its limitless possibilities, variations and efficiency, whipped Carolyn's body back into shape after she had her baby and she's paying it forward by helping others achieve their fitness goals. Carolyn will encourage you to fall in love with fitness and push yourself beyond your comfort zone because that is when change happens.
This workout was love at first class for Chrissie. A marathon runner, health and wellness coach and mother of three who isn't getting any younger, Chrissie figured that her best days were behind her (physically), and kept her fingers crossed that injury would never get in the way of her endorphin maximizing runs. Then she met the megaformer.
Amazed by this total body, low-impact, efficient, endorphin firing and transforming workout, Chrissie now knows that age and life circumstance are not barriers for improvement. Since beginning megaformer workouts, Chrissie has set several personal records in running races, is stronger than ever, and recently bounced back from her third pregnancy faster than after her first two. Chrissie is extremely passionate about motivating clients to push beyond "limits" and find their strongest selves – both physically and mentally, and does so with energy and thoughtfulness.
A lifelong fitness enthusiast, personal trainer, yoga instructor and meditation guide, Virginia has done it, and taught it, all. She is a strong believer that diet and exercise go hand in hand to reach total wellness. Virginia fell in love with Corelab and the Megaformer the very first time she took a class. She believes that if you want to change your body, you have to challenge your body. She has personally experienced that Corelab's Megaformer workout can transform you in many ways other workouts simply cannot. Virginia has the experience and dedication to help you reach your true potential in fitness.
After spending years behind a desk in the corporate world, Nadya realized that her lifestyle needed a change. She directed her warm and energetic spirit toward a cleaner, healthier existence, and discovered the Megaformer.
Nadya first fell in love with the workout while living in Los Angeles, and she decided that becoming Lagree certified would jump start the new career she had dreamed of. Teaching only made her fall more in love with the classes; before long, the Megaformer became her full-time focus. Nadya's life now centers around the Mega and a holistic approach to living well. She strongly believes that with the right attitude (and some great music), anyone can find the same motivation she did, overcome obstacles, and succeed in fitness goals ultimately embracing a new, revitalized self.
In addition to teaching full-time, Nadya is currently working on her own blog to share her knowledge of clean nutrition. Each and every day, she lives to help others find the same balance and purpose that transformed her own life years ago.
Alexis began her teaching career as an elementary school teacher in New York City. She moved to Chappaqua and took some time off to raise her kids.
Fitness is a passion for her and has always been a priority in her life. She is thankful that a friend introduced her to Corelab back in 2013. She was immediately addicted. After being a client of Corelab for years, she decided to combine her passion for fitness with her lifelong love of teaching and she pursued her Lagree certification.
Alexis promises a kick a** class, which will for sure leave you shaky (in a good way) and wanting more.
All Corelab instructors are Lagree Fitness certified and hold CPR/AED certifications.
