The Power of the Core - The Edinburgh Pilates Centre

The Power of the Core


Thank you once again for joining me here today.

I wanted to talk to you about the power of a strong physical core. A study by Harvard Medical School in 2012 refers to your core muscles as “sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body…the necessary motions either originate in your core or move through it.”

Power of the CoreWhen your core muscles are strong and in balance they act like a muscular corset, protecting your back and creating a healthy posture. A weak core can be a source of potential problems, such back pain, poor flexibility, stiffness, poor posture to name but a few.

Your core is where all movement flows from; it is of crucial importance that it supports you in every aspect of your life. A genuinely strong core is so much more than a six pack. A strong core, the likes of which is created and supported by Pilates includes the muscles of your back (the transverse abdominis) and the gluteal muscle groups around your pelvis.

To enjoy the full benefits of a strong core, you must attend a traditional Pilates class, where you’ll have use of specialist Pilates equipment to ensure you develop ALL the muscles necessary for a strong core, not strong abdominals alone.

Do you feel your core could use a tune up?

Get in touch today, and see how quickly you could be feeling the difference.
