Fitness is important in all our lives, whether you are 6 or 60 years old, but do you include core exercises in your fitness routine?
So often we neglect to remember how important core exercises are, core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony and part of a well-rounded fitness program. Core muscles are the base support of your entire body, they completely surround and support your spine and pelvis and also connect your upper body and lower body.
Fitness exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen and leads to better balance and stability, whether playing sports or other activities. Most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.
Fitness classes involves the use of your abdominal and back muscles making it easier to do other sports and activities. The core muscles fire or activate prior to us doing an activity, our nervous system anticipates the activity and braces for support. Should you not have core stability and support acting as a brace for your spine, you are likely to compensate with other muscles, which could cause injuries.
A well-rounded fitness program is the best way to reach your fitness goals.
