Hello! I am Tracy Janczak, a certified Pilates instructor and the owner of Core Rhythm Pilates. I am also a former professional dancer.
In 1994, I discovered Pilates after a dance injury and loved it immediately! After feeling the therapeutic impact on my level of fitness and health and seeing the positive changes to my physique, I was sold. Soon after experiencing Pilates as a client, I made the substantial 400 hour commitment to train with Stott Pilates to become a certified instructor. The Stott Pilates method is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates.
I have studied at highly acclaimed Pilates training centers in Philadelphia, Toronto and in West Bloomfield, Michigan where I eventually opened my own Pilates and Movement Studio after retiring from professional dance and theatre career–which included a five year stint as a Radio City Rockette!
I moved to Farmington in 2012 with my husband, originally from Canandaigua, and our daughter, operating a small Core Rhythm Pilates studio in Canandaigua before moving to our new, beautiful studio space in Victor in 2014. I feel passionate about providing the highest quality instruction in a non-intimidating, relaxed environment, helping clients to reach new levels of strength and flexibility. By continuing to study Pilates and attending specialized workshops in rehabilitative Pilates and specific programs for athletes, dancers, seniors and many special populations, I am confident that I can modify the Pilates experience for a wide range of clientele.
My philosophy is: Fitness should be fun! My mission is to empower people to lead a healthier, happier lifestyle through Pilates.
We will open a second CRP studio in Canandaigua in 2015 and I look forward to re-connecting with my previous Canandaigua clients and making new friends, too!
I have personally selected all the Core Rhythm Pilates instructors on staff. They share my passion for fitness, fun and safety. Together, we are able to offer our clients a range of Pilates and other complementary fitness classes.
Rick Lynch, a registered experienced yoga teacher and owner of the Finger Lakes Yoga Center in Canandaigua, explored the complementary, therapeutic discipline of Pilates exercise at Core Rhythm Pilates after hip surgery—a result of motorcycle racing and a life spent backpacking and white water canoeing! He is now pursuing a Pilates Reformer certification and teaches Reformer Fundamentals classes at Core Rhythm Pilates while continuing to instruct yoga at his own studio. Lynch, who lives in Middlesex, is playing a key role in the new CRP Canandaigua studio.
Laura Warnock recently re-located to the Rochester area from Pittsburgh with her husband and baby Mollie.

She is a Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) certified Pilates Instructor and received her Comprehensive Pilates training at Harmony Pilates in Pittsburgh. Warnock became a Pilates instructor to help people move and feel better, improve overall health and prevent injury.
