Introduction to the Core Board

This class utilizes the core board—a multi axial training tool with a variably stable surface. The object is to stay on the board while doing moves like squats, lunges, push-ups, and jumps. The stability of the core board is adjustable, so beginners can work with an almost stable surface. The more advanced you get, though, the more unstable your board should be.

What is Core Training?

Reebok Core Training is a breakthrough innovation in exercise and fitness developed by Reebok University. It is based on the premise that improved torso strength improves limb function. This class focuses on conditioning and training the body’s central zone or core using reaction, the process in which the body moves and learns to move. By focusing on the root of usable strength, the torso, core training improves functional conditioning, reactive movement and quality of exercise. Core generated movement helps develop control, precision, strength and suppleness simultaneously. Improved core strength and conditioning makes all other exercise and training more effective.

Reebok core training develops:

Torso strength
Reactive movement
Control, precision and suppleness
Total body strength

Too bad you won't be at PI this weekend, but I guess that means one less person ahead of me! That core gizmo looks cool. Let us know your impressions of it.
