Class Name

A strong core goes beyond having a 6‐pack! In this class we'll focus on abdominal strength and endurance, as well as strength and flexibility in back and hips. These areas form a stable base for our bodies to perform fitness and daily life activities safely and effectively. In each class we will integrate core exercises with stretches for an optimal, balanced workout, and may use a mix of body weight, balls and tubing.
