Solid Core

← Back to timetable

The best core exercises are not necessarily the classic crunches and sit ups. To construct a solid core you have to practice an assortment of 4 sets of muscles: rectus and transverse abdominals, as well as the external and internal obliques.

Having a strong core is not all about having a decent six-pack or conditioned abs. In fact the “core” really comprises of various muscles that run the whole length of the middle, and actually thinking of it as more of a corset would be more accurate.

At the point when these muscles contract, they balance out the spine, pelvis, and shoulder support and make a strong base for the majority of all other movements, so core strengthening programs need to focus on all of these four abdominal muscles to be viable.

So … enter our Solid Core class.


This 45 minute session focuses on all 4 abdominal muscle areas
