Did you know that a strong core is at the center of a stronger mind and body?
Healthy living is all about balance. It’s a combination of eating clean, regular exercise, sleeping well and managing stress.
It’s the secret to looking great and feeling incredible.
Training the core improves everything you do, far beyond just giving you defined, toned abs.
Think of the core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body.
Whether you're hitting a tennis ball or mopping the floor, every movement originates in your core or moves through it. These muscles all work in harmony to stabilize your body and transfer power from and to the legs and upper body.
Working these crucial, hard to target muscles can help you tighten the tummy if you’re getting beach body ready and build your strength, control and confidence in the gym.
How can I improve my core strength?
Core training targets the muscle groups which stabilize the spine and pelvis and make the transfer of power through the body more efficient and controlled.
Basic ab exercises
Planks, side planks, sit-ups and stomach crunches are the most common ab exercises, which increase stamina and build core strength.
Pilates and yoga
From downward dog to warrior pose, yoga and Pilates engage every core muscle to give you balance and stability on the mats.
Controlling and extending your arms and legs without resting them on the mat conditions the core and builds stability in the hips and trunk.
A simple, yet powerful core exercise which helps recondition the transversus abdominis to brace the spine during movement. It also helps tighten the tummy muscles .
This is an excellent abs exercise for boosting core strength and evenly improving your body’s balance and stability.
