NASM and AFAA Recertification - Core Connection Certification Course

Become a more efficient trainer by improving the understanding you have of the core. Globally speaking, the core is your entire torso. It houses the vital organs and is responsible for many key functions that are essential to maintaining optimal health. The core protects your central nervous system, supports your internal organs as well as aids in circulating blood and lymphatic fluid throughout the body. For the scope of this course, think of the core as an action center in the torso. It is your body’s foundation for movement. The extremities rely on the core for stabilization and force production. It is the link between the upper and lower body and consists of many parts and layers. Understanding the core and being able to convey what it does, how it works, and the best ways of using it are essential for fitness trainers.

Course Objectives:

  • Define the core.
  • Explain the functions of the core.
  • Describe how to activate and strengthen the core.
  • Teach how to engage it in yoga and other activities.
