The "Core" is a recognizable buzz–word in the fitness world. It is most commonly associated with an image rock hard "Abs," but the core involves so much more than just abdominals. The glutes, the lower back and the abdominals are all integral components of a strong and fully functioning core. We incorporate core strengthening techniques into most of our personal training programs and created Hardcore to provide more opportunities for clients to develop their core strength. Hardcore is a 45–minute, co–ed program blending functional yoga, pilates, and other mat–based exercises in an energetic environment to improve the function and strength of the abs, glutes and lower back – a.k.a. "The Core".
