FIT to the Core
FIT to the Core educates and trains individuals on preventative behaviors and exercises to reduce back pain and improve core strength and stability. FIT to the Core includes two sequenced programs FIT to the Core: Education and FIT to the Core: Stability with Mobility.
FIT to the Core: Education
In these four 45 minute, interactive, lecture style classes participants learn core anatomy and function. This information is then applied to maintenance of proper posture, functional daily movements, and back pain/injury. Individuals learn simple exercises for improving core strength and stability. Once participants complete Education, they will be able to properly activate their inner core muscles while performing daily tasks so that the spine can be adequately stabilized and back pain and injuries can be prevented. FIT to the Core: Education is designed for anybody in any attire. The class places a special focus on individuals who spend a large part of their day sitting.
FIT to the Core: Stability with Mobility
This second program consists of six 45 minute, interactive, movement based classes. Exercise attire is required. Class begins with an assessment of inner core activation and then incorporates basic strength and cardio exercises. FIT to the Core: Education is not a prequisite to FIT to the Core: Stability with Mobility.
