About the Core Training Certification

Thousands of people lead an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, which results in poor posture, a weak core and lower levels of fitness.

The core muscles not only include abdominal musculature but also encompass the chest, diaphragm, pelvis and back muscles. The core supports the body, keeps it upright and plays a role in every simple and complex movement.

Weak core muscles reduce sports performance, strain other muscle groups and minimise the likelihood of sustaining an injury. Those with a weak core often experience lower back pain, balance issues and pain in the feet from standing. Trainers need to incorporate core training exercises into every programme, along with regressions or progressions, to suit every client’s unique needs.

Learning about core muscles, their anatomy, physiology and training principles, you will be in a better position to help your clients achieve their fitness goals.

What You Will Learn in This Course:

  • Why the core is important and how it supports movement and posture
  • The role and function of each core muscle
  • How a weak core affects the body
  • The benefits and features of core mobility, stability and strength
  • Core assessment tests
  • Step-by-step exercise programmes for developing core muscles
  • How core muscles change during pregnancy and childbirth
  • How pelvic floor strength affects and is affected by core muscles


How You Will Benefit from This Course:

  • You will appreciate the function and role of core muscles in every movement
  • You can create an exercise programme to target important core muscles in a balanced manner
  • You will be able to create special exercise programmes for prenatal and postnatal women
