our story

CONNECTION THROUGH COMMUNITY

At Core Rhythm Fitness, we seek to discover the optimum of living through fitness, nutrition, accountability and empowerment. Founded in 2012 by our CEO, Rodrick Covington, we are a boutique fitness and nutrition company based in SoHo, New York City. We believe the best way to transform the body is through the core. We use pilates and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) methodology to build core strength and create alignment in the body.

Our signature CRF pilates warm up, in combination of high-intensity (HIIT) group fitness offerings, personal training and personalized tailored nutrition is the formula in how we manifest transformation. If you want a good class, you can go anywhere. However, if you are looking to create transformation, be apart of a supportive community and manifest remarkable results in your mind, body and spirit, CRF is here for you.
