If you’ve noticed an expanding waistline or are prone to back pain, you may already realize that your core is in a weakened state.
Sadly, many fitness professionals and fitness programs don’t stress the importance of a strong core as a part of a well-rounded fitness program, and the core muscles are often neglected altogether or improperly trained.
Joni explains, “The core (Transverse Abdominis) is your body’s natural corset. Most physical activities depend on stable core muscles. Unfortunately, when I meet with women for the first time, most don’t know how to engage their core, in spite of working with trainers or being active all their lives. The first thing we go over when a new client comes into my studio is what it should feel like to engage their core. Once they make that mind/body connection, their progress is quickly noticeable.”
At TWB our instructors stress the importance of core exercises in every class, leading to better balance, improved posture, stability in sports and daily activities, a smaller waistline, and a more toned appearance.
