The Best Gym in the East Bay!

Everyone has a happy place.  For me, it’s X-Core on Piedmont Ave.  It’s a boutique fitness studio created by Elaine Pavich and Cora Wo.  The two met while working for another studio in San Francisco when they decided to venture out on their own.  Together they managed to create a unique and dedicated community around a fun-filled, intense workout.


xBurn is a high intensity Pilates class on a reformer.  xBurn builds core strength, tones & elongates the muscles, improves flexibility & posture while preventing injuries.  This workout integrates the key elements of resistance and counter-resistance in a sequence that allows you to get the most of every move.  It encourages maximum exertion of one muscle group at a time in a low impact workout.  xBurn is truly one of the best workouts I have ever experienced and the best part is you are done in 40 minutes!


xCLIMB is a 30-minute indoor climbing class that features high-intensity cardio and rhythm-based choreography. The VersaClimber is uniquely designed to provide a true total body, low impact, cardio workout for superior fat and calorie burning results. Research shows that Climbing for even just 20 minutes burns 206% more fat and calories than a comparable treadmill workout.  xClimb is also a low impact, non-traumatic workout – it’s ideal for people who have previous lower body injuries or want to avoid high impact exercise. With proper form you can work out safely without putting stress on the ankles, knees, hips, back or shoulders.  Get ready to be high on endorphins and dripping in sweat with this high intensity workout. 

1,000+ classes!

X-Core classes are high energy and challenging.  You will love the fun music and instructors who truly care about you.  I would know, I teach the Friday morning 8:30 a.m. class and would love to see you there!  Since I first discovered X-Core I’ve taken over 1,000 classes and I’m looking forward to 1,000 more.  Join me!

I'm Lisa, your new Realtor & friend.

My passion is meeting new people, getting to know them and learning their stories. Before I jumped into the world of real estate, I spent nearly 15 years in front of the camera anchoring and reporting the news. The mix of being a Bay Area native, Emmy-winning reporter and now Realtor gives me a deep understanding of the market and has made me an excellent listener and communicator.

I consider it an honor to work with you and guide you during one of the more important times in your life.

hey there!
