A friend and I have been taking a Trio class from Carol for about a year. Even though there are up to three people in the class, instruction is personalized. Exercises are varied, tailored to individuals, and provide a great workout. The incidental education on the musculoskeletal system and soreness you get two days later---well that’s all free!!! Read the review entitled “Best Pilates Studio in Southern Orange County” and you’ll see why Carol is such a supportive, effective instructor: she’s a doctor in sheep’s clothing.

My introduction to pilates was at Carol's studio - I got lucky! She is extremely personable, attentive and supportive. She gradually increases the complexity of a workout so before long you are doing what you didn't think you could.The class size is perfect; pretty close to one-on-one training.She varies the exercises from class to class so you don't get bored and you do get a thorough workout. You can't do better than KinetiCore.

This place is the best Pilates place in Southern OC! And I've done a lot of research to prove it. First, it start with the instructor. Carol has a bachelor of sciense in Kinesiology from Univ of Michigan, a Master of Physical Therapy and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Northwestern University. On top of that she is a certified Pilates instructor. And she will prove you that she well deserves her degrees. What I mean by that is that she is extremely knowledgeable, effective and qualified in teaching Pilates. She knows the body structure and each muscle by heart. She knows exactly what to correct in the way you are performing an exercise or in the way you are using a muscle so you don't hurt yourself and get the most benefit from a particular exercise within the limits of your own body. Like Debbie here, I would go to her class with a neck or back pain and come out perfectly functional after only one hour. I think having someone who knows very well the way the skeletal and muscular system works is very important in Pilates because this type of exercises can hurt you bad if it's not done properly. Besides, Carol doesn't improvise during her lessons. She is following a certain routine that is aimed to equally work all sections of your body. In addition to Carol's expertise, her studio is very clean (the equipment is disinfected after each class), airy and the soft music in the background really helps relax. But the best thing about KinetiCore is class size. Unlike large commercial gyms or other Pilates places, the maximum class size at KinetiCore Pilates is three, which means you get plenty of individual attention from the instructor at a very good price. Carol, checks and corrects every individual during exercises to make sure he/she does the exercise correctly without hurting the body. I can't emphasize enough how important is this kind of individual work for Pilates. To sum it up, I think that KinetiCore Pilates offers the best Pilates instruction one can find in the whole Southern Orange County

Excellent Pilates and Physical Therapy. The studio is always clean and pleasant. Dr. Carol Chen provides good visual and verbal instruction. I have gained balance and strength. I highly recommend KinetiCore Pilates Therapy and Dr. Carol Chen. Whether 1:1 or a class of 3 people, Carol is able to adapt the execises to the individual's needs. I have done so much more than I thought I was capable of doing and with Carol's expertise I know I will continue to improve.

Carol & Kineticore are about the best thing to happen to Lake Forest in a long time. I started with Carol in my first pilates class in June 2008. The sessions are varied & personal. At no time do you feel like you are just another body in a gym. I have two very bad knees & spend all my time on a computer at work. Needless to say I have personal needs in my workouts that Carol has always kept in mind. I always leave the class feeling relaxed & invigorated. Not only do I get a great workout, I have made new friends including Carol. Carol takes a very personal interest in all her students. This is easy because all the classes are limited to 3 people max. Although you can have individual classes Carol makes the small group classes really fun. There is always alot of laughter & I leave feeling like I have been very productive. Carol always makes sure each student has personal attention in every class. With the pilates I have found a way to get the work out I need without hurting my knees. I have toned & strengthened my whole body. I feel better, my posture is better & best of all my clothes fit better. Pilates is a great way to work out & the best person to introduce anyone to pilates is Carol.

KinetiCore Pilates Therapy is amazing! I have been going there very regularly for pilates sessions for many months now. I have had both private individual as well as group sessions with Dr. Carol Chen, and they have all been great. Carol is extemely knowledgeable and professional and a great instructor who pays attention to all the details. She is also friendly and warm and has a special way of making you feel at ease. I went for bad posture, and I have noticed a definite improvement in my posture as well as an increased strength of my core and muscles and a definite improvement in my overall well being. I look forward to my class every week... in fact, it is the highlight of my week! The studio ambiance is perfect...clean, calm, quiet, zen. I would highly recommend anyone interested in pilates or in need of physical therapy to KinetiCore Pilates Therapy.
