What is core stability?

Core stability training is essential to sports performance and injury prevention.

Think of your “core” as your trunk - core muscles lie deep within the torso, and are attached to the spine, pelvis, ribs and shoulder blades. These muscles stabilize the spine and create a solid base of support from which we can generate functional and powerful movements of the extremities. Building core strength and stability can correct postural imbalances, which can lead to injuries, and will help you to develop functional fitness, or fitness essential to regular activities and daily living.
