Balance Continued - Core Strengthening:

We understand how important it is to have proper balance, but how exactly do we improve it?  

We understand how important it is to have proper balance, but how exactly do we improve it?  Automatically we think strengthen our core… right?  Yes, but what exactly is our "core"?  Most people would probably say the abdominal muscles make up our core, but that is only part of the equation. The real "core" of your body is not your abs, but it is your pelvis.  If you have poor pelvis stability or poor bio-mechanics, then the rest of your body is majorly affected.  Proper stabilizing of the pelvis is vital whether you’re an athlete or an individual wanting to perform everyday activities pain free.  It also helps prevent long term problems with knees, hips and lower back pain, which are common sites for pain and injury.  Which brings us back to the importance of our stabilizer muscles, and why so many of our clients (instructors included) have benefited from all those tiny effective "Modus Moves" in their workout routines.
