Core Stability Courses

Finding good core stability training courses is easy - all the leading industry providers offer them. It is also a great way to upgrade you skills in this vital area.

While many fitness fads and fashions come and go - and are little missed once they go - core stability has gone from being a trend to becoming a permanent fixture. Core stability training courses are the perfect way for industry professionals to keep up with the latest findings in this area.

At its simplest the concept of core stability is nothing new. It refers to the strengthening of the muscles at the centre of the body - primarily the abs and low back - which many people have been doing for years.

What sets core stability apart is that it works on functional strength, that is, strength that will be useful in all the activities of daily living. It also takes the emphasis off of just abdominal strength and seeks to develop a balance of strength around the entire core of the body.

Core stability training courses are also a great option if you are looking for ways to meet your annual CPD requirement. CPD requirements vary according to your level, and are as follows :

  • A level 2 instructor will have to complete 16 CPD points in a one year period
     
  • A level 3 instructor will have to complete 24 CPD points in a one year period

As you will see, a good programme will typically offer anywhere from 8 - 24 CPD credits. Some of the options include :
