Core Exercises

Core Exercises focus on strengthening the trunk or torso muscles. Specifically, these workouts strengthen the abs and back muscles. In Pilates terminology, this area of the body is known as the powerhouse.

Just like a tree, you can not have healthy branches unless you have a strong trunk to support the branches. To have healthy support for your head, arms and legs, you must first have a strong trunk, torso or powerhouse.
