Owner and founder of Core Response Pilates & Wellness, Carlos Requejo has more than 30 years of experience as a Pilates and fitness instructor, international master teacher, and personal trainer. He is certified with Stott Pilates Advance Level, has completed workshops in scoliosis with Karena Thek, Marie Jose Blom and Michele Larsson, and Pre and Post Natal with Jennifer Gianni. He is an AFAA Master Certification Specialist in Group Primary, Practical Pilates, Practical Yoga, Mat Science I and II, and Floor, Core, and More. Carlos is Hatha Yoga certified with White Lotus Foundation, TRX™ certified, and has been a massage therapist for more than 25 years.

Carlos has completed the Zen-ga Instructor Foundation Equipment Course. Zen-ga™ is a unique program that incorporates creative, lively, exploratory movements based on the latest research in neuromyofascial training.

Carlos has starred in numerous fitness videos and co-written manuals about Pilates and yoga for AFAA. He presents inspirational master classes and workshops internationally and was a nationally-ranked aerobic competitor for four years.

Carlos discovered Pilates through Michele Larsson when co-owning StudioEast, a fitness, yoga, and dance studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico from 1995- 2000. Injuries brought on by the demand of the work in the fitness industry led him to seek Pilates as an answer for addressing these issues.

To learn more about the work of Joseph Pilates, Carlos moved to Los Angeles, California in 2001 to work exclusively with Sue Atamian Huntley (BASI Certified).

In 2005, Carlos completed his Stott Pilates training with John Garey and opened his own studio in Santa Monica, California. After nine years, Carlos moved his studio to a larger and new location, with the help of eight other instructors.

Carlos not only works with celebrities, athletes, working moms and overall healthy clients, but also with referrals from chiropractors, physical therapists, and acupuncturists. He also has a passion for working with clients who have scoliosis, having been diagnosed with a mild case of his own.

Carlos offers a unique style of instruction that inspires his clients to reach and achieve new levels of skill and performance.
