Core Training Exercises
Core training exercises help to build muscle strength and reduce the risk of injury, and are also essential for rehabilitating muscles after injury.
Below are a list of sample exercises.
Please not that it is essential that you get the advice of a professional physiotherapist or qualified fitness trainer, before undertaking any exercise programme.
Should you have a medical condition, are pregnant, or are starting out exercising after a period of inactivity, we also recommend you consult your physician.
