Fitness Training Tips: CORE

Core Fitness Training

Today I am going to talk about one of the most talked about words in the fitness world, your CORE! Everyone talks about it, but most people really don’t know exactly what their core is. Clients come to me all the time and say, “I need to work on my core”! I have been a certified personal trainer for over 5 years, and when I ask people what they mean by “their core”, I have received a lot of different answers. The most common one being “my abs” or “my stomach”! Well, that is correct and incorrect.

The truth is your core is so much more than your abs. The core really consists of your obliques, hip flexors, lower back, glutes AND your abs! And another truth is, your fitness world really needs to start and end with your core. In my opinion, having a strong core is the single most important aspect in having the fittest body, a good overall workout routine and avoiding long-term injury. You may only care about bench press and bicep curls for now (get over yourself), but someday it will come back to haunt you if you are not implementing a large variety of core exercises into your routine. What happens is you bend over one day to pick up a bag of groceries, or reach up into a cabinet, and throw your back out, all because you are neglecting your core. Don’t let that happen to you. Don’t overlook the core of your fitness training. It can easily be avoided.

I train clients of all ages, shapes and sizes in Charlottesville, Virginia to improve their core strength. I do this through a variety of exercises (easily over 100), focusing on strengthening the core through balance, stability and increasing flexibility. If you would like to hear more, or are looking for a personal trainer in Charlottesville, Virginia, I am always here to help, and I’m only an email or phone call away! Make this year the best fitness year of your life!
