Thank you so much for taking the time to check us out! To say we appreciate your time and consideration is the understatement of the century.

Before we tell you about our journey and why we started COREFIRE, please understand –

We understand where you are, where you’re coming from and where you want to go, and we also understand how overwhelming it can seem to try something new.

It’s natural to have fears associated with  fitness, health & well-being practices. We completely empathize (and are very familiar) with every seed of doubt you might be facing.

But, you’re here right now, so that tells us a few things about you:

  • You’re ready to find out how strong you can be, but you want some encouragement, knowledge and guidance along the way.
  • You’re looking for more than just a gym or fitness class. You want a refuge and a community with coaches and clients who foster a positive, no-judgement environment.
  • You’re eager to learn and fortify yourself, but you also want to have a good time. Being harassed by coaches or bored by useless anatomy lessons doesn’t interest you.

We 100% get it; we started our fitness journey with the same hesitations!

We Value We Avoid
Efficient and Effective movements Overworking to the point of no return. Injuries? No thanks!
Having a GOOD time Med school level anatomy lessons while lunging
Diverse & Deep landscapes One dimensional communities and superficial interactions. Photoshop.
Team environments empowered by High Energy, Trustworthy coaches Isolation in a gym (factory) or being yelled at by a drill sergeant with popping forehead veins.
Progress and Connection of the brain and body Unattainable and non-existent perfection.

We’re Ange & Cait – childhood best friends and COREFIRE co-founders

The values that sustain our lifelong friendship are the same values that drive & operate our business:

  • authenticity
  • trust
  • zero-judgement
  • full transparency
  • conscious commitment

We created COREFIRE to make it easier and more enjoyable to practice self-care, a place where coaches power & energize you through quick – yet effective – total-body workouts.

The COREFIRE experience truly is the manifestation of our childhood dreams.

But… let’s get real. We are not Olympic-born athletes who sprinted out of the womb begging for kale & chia seed smoothies.

In fact, our past is a long and windy road dotted with health issues, body image distortions and weight fluctuations.

We’ve experienced personal losses, so we know how hard, yet short, this one life is.

Everything we’ve done and will do is in the name of strengthening and developing the physical vessel that carries us through the joys of normal day-to-day life.

The COREFIRE Timeline

2000

Become best friends after meeting & grappling over an oatmeal raisin cookie. We play high school field hockey together and choose our positions based on how much running is involved – the less, the better.

2006

We graduate high school, kicking & screaming. Close friends and family tell us to spread our wings, so we attend separate colleges. Providence College & University of Scranton ?. We manage to spend time together while we live, study & become human meatballs with 3 other childhood friends in Florence.

2009

Before we graduate with degrees in Marketing (Cait) and Finance (Ange), we take a joint internship together at ABM. We clean toilets at midnight. Zero complaints because it is so much fun to be together.

2010

Offices make us anxious, so we blindly point to a map, land on San Diego and pack up a moving truck. Our first jobs include: stuffing and licking envelopes.

2011

A close friend is diagnosed with cancer at 23. We reevaluate life and decide to do the impossible – run 26.2 miles to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. After months of training, we get stuck at mile 9. We discover the COREFIRE workout; it morphs our bodies, brains & lives. We run 26.2 miles for our friend. ?

2012

Lightbulb moment, “This workout changed our lives, it’ll do the same for others. Let’s bring it home.” Garage sale! Sell everything + pack up the car. Back to NJ!

2013

We become Certified Pilates Instructors & fitness coaches through Equinox & Lagree Fitness.

2014

Our friend is clear of cancer & we open COREFIRE in our hometown: Montclair! We also adopt 3 bulldog sisters together – Mozzarella, Baked Ziti and Cutlet.

2015

We return to our alma mater to coach the high-school sports we played together.

2016

COREFIRE Ridgewood is open!

2017

and on….more to come!

Whenever the two of us have face a nerve-wracking experience, where avoiding it or giving-up seems like the easiest option, we always tell each other:


Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.

And that will always be our our message to you.

All we need is 45 minutes of your time, 1-3x a week.

All you have to do is show-up, exactly as you are, and let us do the rest.

  • It doesn’t matter what you have or have not done in the past. This is a fresh start.
  • Nobody comes in coordinated and ‘successful.’ COREFIRE is a new language for everyone.
  • Self-care is not indulgent, it’s selfless – it’s impossible to fill from an empty cup.
  • The healthier you are, the better & longer you can serve others.
  • Investing in yourself now is way cheaper than long-term health issues. Self-investment establishes a beautiful example of self-respect for everyone around you to strive for.
  • You are worthy.

There is no other place that will work to strengthen, mobilize and nurture your body so quickly, thoroughly, safely & carefully with as much fun and genuine care as we will. That is a personal promise.

We would be so honored to see you soon. Email us & say hi! It’s really us, we promise: founders@myCorefire.com

In grace, good health & warmth,
Angela & Caitlin
