Whittaker, the first American to climb Mt. Everest, once said,
"You never conquer the mountain, You only conquer yourself."
The same could be said for optimal fitness: You don't conquer
fitness. You only conquer your doubts about fitness.

intent of Core Training
The intent of Core Training is to strengthen the muscle groups
that stabilize your skeletal structure. These are primarily the
muscles in the thoracic area that determine your posture in each
position of your body. The first step to improving your posture
is getting to know these muscles, then toning them so you can
tighten them independently of your lower back's muscles.Your core
muscles serve many vital functions that contribute to your overall
health. Let's take a look at key core functions in order to appreciate
the importance of core training exercises:
for Movement - If your core does not function properly,
you'll most likely experience back and spinal pain, as well
as increased chances of injury.
of your Vital Systems - Your core provides a protective
shield for your spinal cord and internal organs. The core muscles
also function to keep your insides in, where they belong.
Improves Body Fluids - When your body moves and is exercised
from your core, the internal organs are mobilized and stimulated
from adhering together. It improves fluid flow through the organs
and is very helpful to maintaining normal bowel movement.
Circulatory Support - When you exercise from your core,
pressure changes occur in the core muscles that assist the heart
and extremity muscles to circulate blood and lymphatic fluids
throughout the body.
Body Posture and Body Stability - Your core muscles stiffen
the spine, rib cage and pelvic girdle so that your head, arms
and legs have stable working foundation. These muscles all work
in harmony to provide stabilization for your body and to transfer
power from the legs to the upper body and vice versa.
