Product

Every Corefirst comes with a 2-in-1 door attachment/small loop anchor. Easily slip this anchor through the hinge side of any door, close the door and ta-da! You are ready to go!

Alternatively, you can use the same anchor by wrapping it around any heavy object 4″ in or less in diameter. The ability to anchor anywhere also allows you the flexibility to anchor low, middle, or high for a variety of different exercise angles.


You can also anchor to larger objects, such as trees or poles using the Large Anchor, sold separately.

Yes! Using cold water, wash them by hand and air dry. Avoid using soap of any kind.

The Corefirst Resistance bands are made for all fitness levels. The resistance difficulty levels are easy to adjust on the fly by switching out the Level One and Level Two bands (or combining them), and by changing body positioning. There is no risk of accidentally letting go or dropping heavy weights. The Corefirst is as incredible of a tool for someone recovering from an injury as it is for a professional athlete training at the top of their game.

You bet it is! Using the Patent Pending Hands-Free Wraps that self-adjust and hold onto you, form is improved, and major muscles are ignited and engaged for longer than ever before. With Level One, Level Two, and combining both to have the ultimate resistance of Level Three, it is more than enough for the average person.

Absolutely! By engaging in resistance Pilates, you're building and toning lean muscle mass (without causing bulkiness), which can lead to an increase in your resting metabolic rate. This means your body continues to burn calories even after your workout is over. Our programs target various muscle groups simultaneously, providing a comprehensive full-body workout. Engaging multiple muscle groups helps burn more calories during the workout, contributing to a higher caloric expenditure. Looking to sweat it out even more? We have programs for that on the Corefirst Training App!

Yes, the Corefirst will be your new favorite stretching partner! Using the Patent Pending Hands-Free Corefirst Wraps that hold onto you, you can relax as the resistance does the work for you. This allows you to breathe deeply and focus on lengthening your muscles.

They fit all sizes. Without tension being placed on the band, the Corefirst Wraps slide open large enough to fit over any size hand or foot and then self-adjust to fit securely around any size wrist, foot, or ankle. Check out the section "Find the Right Fit" on the Getting Started page of our training app.

Unless you are trying to work out inside of your car, any room or outside area will work! Typically around 6 feet of space is needed, and when lying down, additional room to place your arms straight overhead is best.

Need it to be even more compact? If you’re anchoring around an object, instead of just wrapping the short anchor and securing, continue to wrap your actual resistance bands around the item 1-2 loops, and then secure your short anchor to the carabiner as usual.

No. Our Standard line and Corefirst Level One and Two do not have any exposed latex. The resistance bands are encased in Safety Sleeve Technology.

You bet! The Corefirst accessories are a fantastic way to add efficiency (and comfort) to your workouts, taking you to the next level with ease.

Long Anchor: The Large 38” Corefirst Anchor allows you to take your workout on the road and connect to trees, columns, poles, or any other large stable object larger than 5 inches.

Corefirst Zone Mat: The Corefirst Zone Mat is sourced with the highest quality mat materials available and, next to the Corefirst App, is our favorite training coach. Designed with numbered “zones”— that are fully integrated into the cueing by our instructors during workouts— it provides precise guidance for hand, foot, and knee placements, ensuring optimal positioning during exercises. It is made with non-tear, 7mm-thick eco-friendly material.

Corefirst Floor Sliders: Designed to transform your Corefirst system into a sliding Pilates Reformer bed, these dual-sided sliders introduce a dynamic challenge to your routines. They are 7” in diameter to accommodate hands and feet, and are dual-sided making them compatible with carpets, rugs, hardwood, and more.

Corefirst Circle Bands: These bands, available in two resistance levels, ensure optimal muscle activation, taking your results to the next level. The set includes Level 1 (light-medium resistance) and Level 2 (heavy resistance) bands. With anti-slip rubber weave technology, these 16” diameter bands don’t roll, slip, or pinch!

Corefirst Blocks: Support and elevate your Corefirst Pilates practice with our premium high-density foam blocks. Designed for rigorous sessions, they assist with alignment, stretches, and balance. These slip-resistant blocks measure 9 in. W x 6 in. H x 4 in. D.

We are glad you asked! The Corefirst weighs less than 2 lbs. and fits into a travel bag the size of 1 female size 7 shoe! So yes, it’s perfect for travel!
