Who Can Benefit From Core Suspendtm?

Core Suspendtm is great in a group setting or for personal training. The group classes are an energetic choreographed workout that gives you full body conditioning to burn fat at the same time as toning muscles and exercising your postural muscles.

In a personal training class Core Suspendô is adapted to meet your individual needs and goals including the following:

  • Lose weight
  • Flatten your waistline
  • Tone your muscles
  • Improve your fitness
  • Relieve backache or shoulder problems
  • Improve posture
  • Gain strength

What is the Core Suspendtm System?

Core Suspendtm was developed by Options Studio in order to combine the benefits of Neuractm treatments with an invigorating workout that can be enjoyed by anyone. The Core Suspendtm System integrates functional physiotherapy into your workout to maximise use of important muscles without even realising that you are using them. The workout can be done anywhere that you can suspend your Redcordtm Mini.

What can you expect from your Core Suspendtm?

Core Suspendtm for groups gives clients an awesome choreographed workout that leaves them feeling taller, looser and generally invigorated. Over time the workouts will tone you up, strengthen you and tighten up your waistline. You will notice postural benefits and any other sports that you participate in will benefit from the increased use of your intrinsic muscles.

Specialised workouts are available that work on the specific muscular needs of different sports. Core Suspendô for private clients will give you the same great workout as group classes but with the addition of specialised weak-link testing to determine any structural imbalances that may be causing bad postural habits or chronic difficulty with certain daily activities and movements. The exercises and modifications used will be selected specifically according to your needs in order to improve any musculoskeletal problems that you have been experiencing. Private sessions will also include offloading in order to help you progress at your own pace.

How is the Core Suspendtm different?

Compared to Pilates you will find that your Core Suspendtm is tough and feels much more like hard work! In Pilates you become consciously aware of your body and learn to move correctly during your everyday life. However with Suspendtm the whole process is subconscious and happens automatically as part of the workout.

Activation of postural muscles occurs because of the instability of the Redcordô equipment. This instability causes shaking or shivering of the intrinsic muscles around the joints being worked if you have reached the limit of your stable work with each exercise. The neuromuscular pathways that control and monitor the intrinsic postural muscles are activated much more than under normal circumstances when the muscles contract and relax very quickly during this shaking.

This activation automatically gives control of the muscles back to the brain and spinal cord so that you can start using these muscles properly in everyday life and in your sporting activities without even knowing how! Such instability is not found in most other workout methods including most suspension training methods and gym workouts, even when done on gym balls or balance boards because the instability has to cause very rapid shaking in order to work. Slower shaking of the muscles requires conscious control instead of subconscious control so it is far less effective.
