I joined Core Body because they appeared to have everything that I wanted, cardio machines with TVs, free weights, pilates classes, and a clean facility. I often left the gym before getting out of my car b/c I couldn't find a parking space. I often left the gym after I couldn't get on a treadmill or elliptical after 20 minutes of other activity. I often left the gym after I showed up on time for pilates and there wasn't adequate space for me to fit in. They had 2 pilates classes a week for about 1/2 of the time I was a member, and the classes were at the same time of night each day. They added another one, but this class was only 1/2 hr earlier than the other two. It was always hard to make it at these times, I rarely did and I'm sure many others felt the same way. It really is a small basic gym with some frills, friendly staff and members, but overall not what I'm looking for. Because I'm a professional with a hectic schedule, I need to be able to depend on a gym, and they haven't been able to provide that. If your schedule is flexible, maybe Core is a better match for you.

CORE Body is a fantastic gym. It's not too crowded, it's not smelly, the staff is friendly, and it has everything that you need -- plenty of cardio machines and free weights, a full class schedule, weight machines galore, and its clients are folks who are interested in working out -- not in what you are wearing. In addition to its fine equipment and cool staff, you can find the absolute best personal trainer in the metro Atlanta area -- LISA KEOWN. She's a real student of exercise science and personal training, and she knows more about nutrition and fitness than any other personal trainer I have ever met. Lisa's workouts are fun, challenging, and will totally whip you into shape. Her energy is infectious -- and I promise you -- if you will listen to Lisa and actually do what she tells you to do, you are guaranteed to look, feel, and be your best self. I can attest to this because LISA KEOWN changed my attitude about exercise and fitness, and in the process, helped me completely change my life.

I love Core Body. Too bad, I do not go there enough. I like to be outside a bunch for my workouts, so I do not get to the gym that often, but when I do; I love Core Body...no long waits, clean, nice design, great cardio equipment...the nicest gym I have ever worked out in.

I have been training with Brian Chapman at core body in Decatur. In fact I changed gyms to follow him.. He is well informed, creates an excellent workout program and has a relaxed manner that is easy to work with. I highly reccomend him.
