Ultimate Core Strength: The Root of It All

In this challenging 20-minute workout, participants will focus on more than the basic crunch. This class will target the abdominals, obliques, and lower back.

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the different muscles making up the core. Students will also walk away with numerous exercises they can complete on their own as well as additional injury prevention exercises. 
I am a USA Youth Basketball Certified coach, former D-1 and professional basketball player with over 30 years of playing and coaching experience. I currently coach at the High School level and train clients from the elementary level to the professional level both in sport and fitness. I hold a specialist certification in personal fitness, injury prevention, and performance enhancement as well as group exercises classes. 

No two athletes are the same; therefore, I make an effort to customize workouts based on an individuals goals as well as needs. The core is imperative to our daily activity. This class focuses on endurance, strength and  injury prevention to assist in our daily efforts of staying active and healthy. Through my background and individual journey, I have learned that the core is the center for all activity. Once we commit to strengthening the core, everything else aligns. 

My focus has always been teaching the fundamentals. I believe that it is important at to build a solid foundation in order to build upon.
(Optional) Continue utilizing these exercises on a regular basis. 
Students will need a towel, water bottle, and enough open space to stretch out both horizontally and vertically. Rule of thumb, enough space that they can lay flat in all directions.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will have a chance to ask questions and interact throughout the class. Students will also receive feedback regarding form correct, tips, and an overall assessment at the conclusion of class. Students will be motivated and challenged to do their best and / or to do better than they did in the previous class (if they choose to return).
20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Each student will need an open workout space about 6 x 6, with nothing on the floor or anything they could potentially impede with their participation. Students will also need a water bottle for hydration and possibly a towel if they sweat profusely. We will stretch as part of our warm up but additionally stretching before class is encouraged but not necessary. 

Please note that serious injury could occur if the student does not have an open area to workout in or is dehydrated.
