CORE! (Its not just for apples anymore)

Do you feel a little shaky when you climb?  Do you have a hard time keeping your feet on when you get to the steeps?  Then, it may be time to focus on your CORE!

Core strength is very important for climbing and overall health.  Improving your core will help keep you balanced and strong, allowing you to keep your limbs on the wall and make those difficult moves.  Edgeworks offers many classes to help strengthen your core muscles including yoga, pilates, and bootcamp (included with membership or day pass).  Or if you are looking for something a little more personalized, Edgeworks is now offering personal training sessions with our personal trainers, Marisssa and Patrick ($50/hr or $200 for 5hrs).

Whatever you choose, don’t forget: while we may be striving for that six pack to show off in our summer wear, the core consists of much more than just our tummy.  So get balanced – work your CORE!
