How about a workout program where the objective is for you to reach a point where the air around you feels like water and being in your body becomes effortless? Sound great? This is the workout program Dr. Katie Griffin follows and it’s available here in Santa Cruz. Here’s a description of what that kind of program looks like.
The first step starts with CoreFLOW(tm), which teaches you to relax, oxygenate, and communicate with your body during passive mobility. Spine-based movements over a foam roller, contra-lateral relaxation, and self-active release therapies are just a few of the integrative modalities you use.
SymetriCORE(tm) is an alignment-based training program, geared towards teaching you how your body has developed functional and structural compensations and uneven movement patterns. Mid-line proprioception, bi-lateral equalization, and hip flexion are just a few concepts you learn to incorporate into your workout program while increasing your anaerobic condition.
Once your body begins to achieve harmony between your structural, muscular, and nervous systems… it is possible to begin the CoreStrength part of the program. You’ll be working in all energy systems… oxidative, glycolytic, and phosphagens. And you’ll focus on developing absolute strength, by developing many specific strengths such as relative-strength, speed-strength, and maximal-strength (to name just a few).
The net result of the CoreStrengthRX workout program is a fluid body of strength, not a tight, dense body that is prone to injury and “locking up”. The objective is for your body to achieve “Physical Buoyancy”. This is a state where the air around you feels like water, and being in your body becomes effortless.
You can experience this kind of training at CoreStrengthRX and get in shape and stronger because of your health… not despite it.
