New Class, Core Power!

Physical Therapist Mags Matthews is teaching a new class for the new year. Called Core Power, this class focuses on building strength in the center of the body.

When you think “core,” you may think that just means your abs. Not so! This means your whole torso. This class will strengthen your whole body  through your shoulders, back, abs, chest, and hips.

Mags takes input at the beginning of the class to see if there are areas of concern for any of the students, and adjusts the class accordingly.

The class has its challenging bits, but is more refreshing than challenging. Most of the exercises will feel pretty easy until the last couple of repetitions. And Mags can watch your form to make sure you are getting the most out of the exercise.
