Core Training Classes

The professional staff at CORE Physical Therapy & Training implements a safe system of training for people of all ages, fitness levels, pathologies and athletic backgrounds, applied in either one-on-one through formal physical therapy sessions or group training sessions. Current patients are encouraged to exercise at the clinic in between treatment sessions. Those who no longer require physical therapy are encouraged to attend our cost-effective core training sessions. The CORE Physical Therapy & Training community fosters maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and life-long management of health problems through regular, appropriately graded, non-generic exercise.

Class Schedule:

M/W: 7:00 – 8:00 am
M/W/F: 8:00 – 9:00 am
T/TH: 3:30 – 4:30 pm

What’s so special about CORE PT & Training style of core training classes?

A thorough understanding of exercise physiology and the effects of pathology and aging has led to a creative use of basic equipment (such as balance boards, balls, etc.). Of equal importance, isolation of specific muscle groups, manual facilitation, combination of cardio with strengthening, balance and coordination and flexibility have been incorporated into functional applications and scenarios to meet the demands of living, recreational and sporting activities.

What is the time commitment for Group Training classes?

Our Core Training Classes are conducted currently on a varying Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule. More classes will be scheduled to accommodate the growing need. The larger picture: the optimum scenario includes a long-term commitment to exercise and training because concrete and substantial improvements are seen over time. It is less cost-effective and less constructive to be present for classes infrequently or irregularly. One of the traits setting CORE Physical Therapy & Training apart is its methodology and exercise system that makes this long-term commitment nearly effortless.

Who should exercise in this group setting?

As the benefits of consistent exercise are well known, anyone whose objective is to increase fitness, reduce pain, build strength, improve function, lose weight and/or focus on trunk stabilization without aggravating a past or present pathology is a candidate for our Core Training Classes. In short, our classes are a fit for anyone who is motivated to enhance or maintain quality of life and function, but are particularly valuable for those who have some pathology that prevents participation in exercise classes in a public gym.

Why exercise in a group setting?

“I never would have accomplished so much without the incentive of this group pulling me along”, is the typical response to this question. The momentum of an exercise-compatible class, spirit of camaraderie, healthy competition and enthusiastic humor all contribute to adherence to an exercise or training regimen.

 How do I sign up for group training classes?

For your safety, participation in CORE’s group training classes is preceded by a physical therapy evaluation to determine ability, level of fitness and appropriateness for exercise. Anyone may request such an evaluation, even if not a current patient with CORE Physical Therapy & Training. It may be recommended to complete formal individual physical therapy to alleviate current symptoms and have personal one on one exercise sessions prior to introduction into core training class. This formal physical therapy session/s serves as an orientation to training principles and CORE Physical Therapy & Training exercise philosophy.
