Core Strength

Core Strength is paramount in any fitness program. This video collection is comprised of exercises that target your core, allowing you to move in a variety of planes of motion with improved range on motion and strength. Our core includes many muscles that attach to our rib cage, pelvis, scapulae and spinal column. They are considered our "power center", continuously transferring forces to and from from our limbs. Improve your posture, respiration, and overall strength with intelligent core training
