Core stability training is essential to sports performance and injury prevention. The body’s core muscles are the foundation for all other movements. The muscles of the torso stabilize the spine and provide a solid foundation for movement in the extremities. Training the muscles of the core corrects postural imbalances that can lead to injuries.
Personal Edge Fitness trainers will design your program to strengthen not just the abdominals but all 29 muscles that attach to the lumbar-pelvic-hip complex (LPHC), the thoracic spine, and the cervical spine. Core training is an ideal solution to bad posture, weak abs, and low back pain.
Sense of balance or the ability to know where your body parts are in 3-dimensional space is required for every movement we make. This complex system needs plenty of regular ‘practice’. As children, we develop good balance by practicing balancing activities – walking along walls, jumping, spinning, and climbing. As adults, we tend not to give our balance system the practice it needs. Health problems can also weaken the balance system.
At Personal Edge Fitness we can train you to improve the proprioception within the muscles, just by creating a program that will keep your balance system challenged and healthy!
