Discover the True Meaning of Core Training
Did you know that Core refers to the "most central, innermost, or essential part of something"? Does knowing this have you question your current core exercise program?
Our core is a complex system that has a profound impact on our quality of life and athletic performance. It is responsible for posture, circulation, respiration, maintaining continence (prevention of urinary & fecal incontinence), support for our internal organs (prevention of pelvic organ prolapse or hernia), sexual function, stability, digestion, phonation all the while balancing and counterbalancing pressure changes from within.
Shouldn't we make training the core for function a priority over aesthetics?

I'm Trista Zinn, founder of Coreset Fitness. I'm Canada’s first Master Trainer & International Course Instructor in HYPOPRESSIVE®.
Guiding men and women to better core health has become a true passion of mine. Core health means so much more than an abdominal workout based on strength and aesthetics. Unfortunately I learned the hard way and developed pelvic floor dysfunction when I was 40. The years of over training my core based on abdominal-centric exercises, strength training and running with a body that appeared strong on the outside was unable to manage the repetitive increases in pressure from the inside. It wasn't until I began training with the Hypopressive- Low Pressure Fitness program that I truly came to understand the true essence of "the core."
As an outdoor fitness enthusiast I love to run, X-country ski, cycle, walk everywhere and train with the TRX suspension trainer. I know the appeal of training at different intensities and what it is like to be injured. Being diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction I came to realize it as an injury to my core, the one injury that was the most emotionally draining!
"Prior to doing the HYPOPRESSIVE I had many pelvic floor dysfunction related issues. After a few months of doing HYPOPRESSIVE training my pelvic floor physiotherapist has assessed me as having an optimally functioning and well co-ordinated pelvic floor. An added benefit has been an increased metabolism and enhanced cardio-vascular performance."
"I’m obsessed with hypopressives. It’s become what I need to have the best pelvic floor functioning and what I crave when I’m stressed. After a full session, I actually have that feeling I used to get after runs of just feeling so relaxed and good. I love learning the new more detailed poses.
