With an emphasis on "core" training, your muscles work together as an integrated unit, balancing strength gains across all of the involved muscles.This emphasis on core strength provides for equal time on the abdomen, sides, back and other areas deep in the trunk all while increasing your balance, flexibility and aerobic fitness.
