About This Class

32ae9567

This core strengthening sequence will not only tone and lengthen the abdominal muscles, it will also activate the obliques, pelvic floor, back, inner thighs and butt which together make up the core of the body. A powerful core will help you... 

  • have better posture
  • take deeper breaths
  • cultivate balance
  • feel better
  • rejuvenate internal organs
  • have more energy

...and greet each day with more confidence and ease. We use our core to do just about everything! A powerful core is a powerful you.

On top of that, core work is preventative medicine. A publication by Harvard Medical School recently stated that 4 out of 5 Americans suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives, most of which could have been prevented by exercises that build balanced core muscles.

There's no reason not to get started today... so let’s hop to it!

This floor exercise targets the following regions:

  • front body: abdominal muscles that run from sternum to belly
  • back body: muscles that hold and move the spine
  • side body: internal and external obliques
  • hip flexors: pelvic floor, butt & inner thighs

 Come back to this floor work again and again for maximum benefits.
