CorePhysique founder Kolleen Riddick, of Milton, moved her business to a new facility where she offers fitness boot camps, personal training and youth programs.
After holding her fitness classes at parks and public facilities in Milton, resident Kolleen Riddick decided to bring CorePhysique to a new location.

She opened the 4,700-square-foot gym at 6225 Atlanta Highway, Suite 111, in Alpharetta in January, offering class discounts to Milton residents. Riddick first partnered with the city in 2010 to offer fitness programs in conjunction with Milton’s parks and recreation department.

“We do offer discounts … because we feel like we don’t have a community center where we are,” she said. “[The city is] just so small right now that this gives them a sense of a community feel.”

CorePhysique offers boot camps, youth programs, personal training, small group sessions and other specialized fitness classes.

“I’m trained as a corrective exercise specialist, and I really believe in looking at the body and watching how it moves and then training around that,” Riddick said. “So I train for everyday movement patterns. Form is key to what we do.”

She can gear workouts to clients of all ability levels. One of her boot camp classes includes both a 24-year-old and a 70-year-old, she said. Riddick and her team also work with clients recovering from injuries or who suffer with mobility issues.

She said before starting boot camp sessions, participants will sit down with her or her staff.

“We’re able to identify their weaknesses, and we’re able to offer modifications for them,” Riddick explained.

Walking into CorePhysique is different than the average fitness center chain.

“We don’t have machines or TVs,” she said. “It’s a function fitness gym. We believe in body motion. We have suspension training systems. We have some kettle bells [and] some free weights.”

Riddick considers the partnership between CorePhysique and the city of Milton to be mutually beneficial and said it is “an awesome opportunity” to get those in her community moving and living healthy.
