A revolutionary apparatus, CoreAlign® improves strength, balance, posture and functional movement patterns.
Developed by Jonathan Hoffman, a physical therapist and fitness enthusiast, CoreAlign® was created with the belief that the body functions and heals best when movements are anatomically sound and balanced. As a training tool, CoreAlign® exercises are designed to create harmony between controlled stability and dynamic mobility, resulting in a strong, healthy and vibrant body. Clients at all fitness levels will feel the difference after one session.
The CoreAlign® method stimulates our core stability muscles to fire in perfect timing while performing functional exercises, deep stretches and core-controlled aerobic training. This makes it a perfect addition to a Pilates studio, personal training or physical therapy practice. The method is used for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, performance enhancement and general conditioning for overall wellness.
CoreAlign® can be used as a stand-alone exercise practice or as a complement to existing Pilates programming. In either case, CoreAlign® can bring endless variety to enhance clients’ experiences, health and fitness.
The CoreAlign® frame encloses two tracks and carts, which move independently with smooth resistance (or assistance). The resistance is created by six elastic tubes on each cart. Resistance/assistance is possible in one or both directions. The CoreAlign® is extraordinarily versatile with hundreds of completely new and unique movement exercises.
