Stretch and Core

What is the Stretch and Core class?

This quick, half-hour class makes adding a core workout to your daily routine easy. Your instructor will carefully explain each Stretch and Core exercise so you understand how it works and why it’s so important to your overall fitness. Proper breathing, form, technique, and timing are all part of what you learn from your teacher. To ensure your safety and comfort, members are encouraged to complete a 10-15 minute cardio warm up before class. The class itself features 8 to 10 different core exercises, leading up to 8 to 10 focused core stretches. Benefits and safety are maximized as your trainer leads you through 15 to 30 seconds per stretch.

Who should take the Stretch and Core class?

Getting older often means less activity, and it nearly always means reduced functionality and flexibility. That’s why people of all fitness levels who want to fight these effects are served well by the Stretch and Core class as part of an overall fitness routine. You can choose which level of difficulty is right for you for each exercise in the course, and the instructor’s class outline sheet will explain the difficulty levels throughout the class. Members who take the Stretch and Core class should evaluate which difficulty level is right for them based on what they are able to successfully maintain throughout the class.
