Today, I complement a regular weekly schedule of cardio and resistance training with martial arts practice in taiji and gongfu, along with qigong and meditation. For the body to be truly fit, the mind and the spirit must also be fit.

As an NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, I want to share what I have learned with you. Whether you are a homemaker, an executive, a retired person, a “weekend warrior,” or an elite athlete, a strong and balanced core is at the foundation of true fitness. Core conditioning works the muscles of the torso, shoulders to hips, along with the muscles that provide stabilization and balance. Standing up out of a chair, bending over to pick up a bag of groceries, playing with the kids, not to mention serious sports competition, are all enhanced when your core is fit.

“Core” comes from the Latin word for “heart,” and I will encourage you to live with
