2023 Reindeer Run & Roll 5k

The 2023 Reindeer Run & Roll 5k is almost here! Our annual 5k supports the CORE Foundation Scholarship Program, and it isn’t just a 5k. We’ll have food, drinks, a raffle with some pretty epic prizes, a DJ and more after the race. You may have missed the deadline for a shirt and medal, but it’s not too late to register for the event and support a great cause!

We hope to see you there on Saturday, December 16th!

Turkey Tuesday

Thank you so much to all of you that joined us for our Turkey Tuesday Thanksgiving celebration! We had a wonderful time feasting on all the goodies everyone shared and celebrating the holiday with you.

Farewell Fall Interns

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time to say farewell to our Fall 2023 Interns! Thank you so much for all your help in the gym this semester. We wish you all the best!

Holiday Cheer

Help spread the holiday cheer in the gym this season with your very own limited edition CORE Ugly Sweater Tee! Get yours before time runs out.

If you want to bring the CORE Spirit into your home this holiday season, pick up one of our COREnaments at the front desk. COREnaments are $10 each and all proceeds go directly to the CORE Foundation.

Christmas Came Early at CORE

The past few months we have been trialing new standing equipment to continue to challenge our clients in different ways. Well, Christmas came early as we have officially brought the OmniStand Dynamic Balance System into the gym permanently!

If you haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, the OmniStand is a wonderful piece of equipment that is quickly becoming a trainer favorite as it allows the trainer to incorporate a full weight bearing activity while challenging balance, trunk stability, and pre-gait exercises.  The trainer can be hands off to view the client from different angles to ensure optimal standing alignment and kick up the intensity with aggressive exercises and fun activities while upright. Talk to your trainer to see if you’re an appropriate candidate to use the device at your next session!

CORE Gift Certificates

With the holiday season coming up it’s time to get your gifts and make your holiday wish list. What better to add to your list than a CORE Gift Certificate? Speak with the admin team to get yours today!


This month’s employee C.H.A.M.P. is Sasha! Sasha has excelled in the gym recently, taking on more Relax & Recover sessions, and always hustling to help out wherever she is needed.

As this month’s C.H.A.M.P., Sasha has selected Mattie! Mattie travels to CORE all the way from Gainesville each week and always comes to the gym with a positive attitude and ready to work. She’s always willing to try something new and take what she learns in her sessions and apply it at home.

Keep up the great work Sasha & Mattie!

How Can You Support the CORE Foundation?

The CORE Foundation was founded in 2011 to provide needed financial support and education for individuals with spinal cord injury or other neurological conditions, providing them the opportunity to participate in much needed activity-based training sessions. In 2022, CORE Foundation scholarships supported over 3,000 hours of activity-based training for those challenged with paralysis.

The CORE Foundation Scholarship is funded by the generosity of individual donations, fundraisers, corporate sponsors, and philanthropic foundation grants. You can help the CORE Foundation by attending events, such as the Reindeer Run & Roll 5k, grabbing a snack at the Foundation Fuel Market, or donating directly to the CORE Foundation.
