Get hard-core

Monday 10 November 2014
  • Group Core class

Do you sometimes dream of having a washboard tummy like Michelle Bridges or the ripped abs of the Commando? It doesn’t have to be a fantasy!

Try this 30-minute workout...

Want some nice definition in your stomach and waist? A Group Core class is your answer.

You’ll perform bodyweight exercises and use equipment to develop a strong core from your shoulders down to your hips.

Here's what the class includes:

  • To begin you’ll get your core in motion with squats, lunges and planks.

  • After getting warmed up you’ll complete some standing exercises like half burpees and single-leg deadlifts.

  • Next you’ll move onto non-standing exercises which focus on your back.

  • The class then transitions to core stability using prone position exercises like planks and hovers.

  • Your final push will condition the core using dynamic movement-based exercises like bicycles and crunches.

  • The session then wraps up with a series of exercises to help you cool down.

Group Core is one of our many heart-pumping group fitness classes. It’s great for preventing back pain, improving stability and getting ripped abs!
