The muscles around the trunk and pelvis area of the body are known as the CORE of the body; and maintaining a strong body core is important at any age - good balance, posture and back health are all linked to core strength, and the core is the vital “foundation” of all the body’s movements, whether walking, carrying a heavy bag or baby, or exercising.
Many people mistakenly think that their “abs” or abdominal muscles are the only core muscles, but in fact, the core muscle group includes all of the muscles that are located in the torso that keep the body stable and balanced. It makes sense when you think about it as, it takes many different muscles working together to keep your body well-aligned and strong during different daily activities.
Today’s lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary and we spend more and more time sitting, with our core muscles relaxed. This sedentary time happens at home, in vehicles and, especially, at work.
Research suggests that core stabilization and core strengthening can help to improve back health, balance and overall functional fitness. (Functional fitness is the ability to maintain a fitness level that allows completion of everyday tasks).
