OUR NEW FITNESS CHALLENGE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN! 

We'll continue to focus on strengthening our core & abs this October, while adding some new balance and stability exercises.

 

Why are balance and stability important?

A healthy balance system gives you more energy and strength while helping you move freely and confidently. There are immediate health benefits from maintaining your stability, including better mobility, fewer injuries and a greater ability to push yourself further during exercise which in turn increases your overall fitness level.

Balance is like strength and flexibility – you can improve it if you challenge it. Working on your balance and stability become increasingly important as you age, when falling can become a more serious problem.

Why is core strength important for women?

Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.

Choose a continuous movement that keeps you moving quickly but efficiently. If you find yourself having to stop before the minute is over, you may need to adjust your pace. This could include jumping jacks, high knees, dance, butt kicks, step ups, running if you have a treadmill or biking if you have a stationary bike. You could also choose to do these workouts outside and run up and down stairs, do sprints, etc.
