"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

Your core is where all movement in your body originates. The core muscles of your body are your center of gravity. Strong core muscles - abdominal, back and pelvis - provide support to your spine for everything from walking, lifting and standing to sitting.

Core training is essential to sports performance and injury prevention. The body's core muscles are the foundation for all other movement. The muscles of the torso stabilize the spine and provide a solid foundation for movement in the extremities. Training the muscles of the core also corrects postural imbalances that can lead to injuries. The biggest benefit of core training is to develop functional fitness - that is, fitness that is essential to both daily living and regular activities.Strong core muscles are the foundation for sustaining health and fitness, however they are often neglected. Most people have weak core muscle, which are the cause of many injuries, poor posture and lower back pain and injury.


Core muscles are the transverse abdominis (3rd, 4th, and 5th muscles, posterior torso), the Perineil muscle floor (lower torso), and the Gluteal muscle complex (minimus, medius and maximus, anterior torso). Core muscles act in unison as a girdle for the torso. They are also the primary stabilizers of the spine. This combination of muscles provides stability and support of your spine in every activity. Whether you are walking, running, jumping, or sitting at a desk, your core muscles are the foundation for all movement, power and strength in your body.
