The Core Strength Workout

The perennially popular yoga, ballet and pilates all owe their success to what has become the latest buzzword in fitness: Core Strength. Core strength refers to the torso muscles – from the glutes and abs to the back and neck – those muscles that literally keep you standing tall, strong and erect. Athletes and dancers have always understood the importance of core strength, and as our population ages everyone is beginning to herald workouts that concentrate on these all-essential muscle groups. After years of relying on yoga, pilates, ballet and various combinations thereof to work these muscles, the fitness industry is now developing routines strictly for Core Strength. This is the fitness trend of the decade. Buy Here!

Fitness Author, Karon Karter, speaks on her Philosophy:


What you think is what you feel, and what you feel is what you radiate through the gift of living your best, dare I say, sexier life — and what woman wouldn’t want that! I happen to know a lot about changing women’s bodies. Each week, I teach Pilates and toning classes to 75-plus students (mostly women). My number one goal is for them to walk out of class feeling better than when they arrived — and taking that “feel-good” feeling with them throughout their day. Of course, I do this by telling them exactly how to get stronger and slimmer bodies. Strong bodies are beautiful — no matter your size, shape or age — and I strongly feel that when you do something good for your body, you just feel good.


Here’s what I know: If I don’t work out (and I must workout and eat right to maintain my shape), I feel blah. I don’t necessarily look any different in the mirror, but I emotionally feel bad like my jeans are too tight or I have a bulging belly. So working out keeps me emotionally confident and that confidence stays with me all day. I can go about my day and not worry about how I look because I know that I’m taking care of my body.


The truth is a hot and healthy body requires commitment, but most of all it takes inside information on how to transform those womanly areas with visible results. And that’s where I come in. Do something wonderful for you and I promise you’ll feel better about your body and that’s what motivates me everyday to write, teach and come up with new exercises — to build a stronger and healthier you along with an attitude of modern day sassy femme fatale!
