Core Kinetics began in 2011 with a vision to combine training and science. The goal was to educate and coach athletes based on sound, fundamental training principles. Jason believes there is a balance between the ‘want’ and ‘need’ of every client. The ‘want’ is satisfied by which the client has a rapport with their trainer, having input into their individual goals in an environment that promotes education and creativity. The ‘need’ is centered around assessing the client for asymmetries and compensation patterns in movement. Functional capacity is restored through reinforcement exercise. The platform of mobility to stability to strength is utilized to progress a client through the training process.
The stability and strength of the core is instrumental to the human body. Philosophically, the core functions as a brace, helping to maintain the body’s intervertebral structures. In addition, it provides muscular control to maintain functional stability. As it translates to sport, core stability/strength controls the position and motion of the trunk over the pelvis to allow optimum production, transfer and control of force to the segments in integrated athletic activity. Consider the game of tennis in which the forces generated in the serve or ground stroke, start in the lower extremities and are transferred through the core to the upper extremities.
No matter the sport or individual, the core is an integral component of any training program. Core Kinetics provides a systematic approach to training, that is both fun and focused. Come train today!
