• I've been working with Tom since 2004 and truly believe that his unique style of teaching and exercises helped me earn my 12 medals in the Athens, Beijing and London Olympics.

  • The Center of Balance is a great place for people from all walks of life, for healthy individuals looking for core strength, for athletes, dancers, for people with injuries, people recovering from illness etc.

    – Sarah W

  • Thanks to working with terrific trainers at Center of Balance, I did not become exhausted wandering at the San Jose Jazz Festival last weekend and, literally, felt no pain.

    – Fran

  • After two babies, I suffered chronic hip pain that disappeared after strengthening my core and increasing flexibility through Tom's workout.

    – Rozanne D

  • The Center of Balance and its teachers helped change my life. Not only am I 20 lbs lighter with better tone and strength in my muscles, but I have learned more about the human body and how it works than I ever did in any science class.

    – Monica S

  • I've gained a greater understanding of Pilates including the core, breathing, and engaging of muscles. I leave class feeling stretched and as if I've worked, but also energized and aligned. I love it!

Upcoming Events & Updates

Sunday, February 28 (Note date change!)
10am - 12pm

group corealign fishbowl 6 webStep into functional fitness at its best! Experience the CoreAlign system in a small group setting, where you’ll focus on conditioning, core stability and alignment during a full body workout. CoreAlign exercises resemble movements in life, like walking and running, which give instant feedback and get you to turn your body on. You’ll address common imbalances in areas of the body — lower back, hips, legs, spine – which can result from our modern lifestyle of too much sitting.

Intro to CoreAlign is a great way to supplement your training, as well as enhance your other movement practices. This workshop is a great prep for students interested in joining an ongoing CoreAlign group.
