Core Fitness

                               GETTING TO THE CORE OF THINGS!


The "core" of the body is simply what's between the shoulders and hips. If you have a stable trunk you will be able to move your arms and legs with more range of motion.  You will also  be decreasing your chance of sustaining an injury.  


While exercising on machines can give you the benefit of muscle hypertrophy (increase in muscle size) it usually doesn't require you to use your core muscles.  Put yourself in a non-supported position to recruit core muscles.  Core training is functional training in that it carries over to everyday life.  The benefits one can expect from core training includes improved; posture, balance and overall alignment of the body.
