I am a runner, and I love CoreAlign. As an Olympic athlete it may be hard to believe that CoreAlign has taught me more about how to run and about my athletic strengths and weaknesses than any other form of exercise I have done to date. The exciting aspect of CoreAlign is that you can’t cheat. You can’t hide from your weaknesses, and you can’t fake your strengths or lack thereof I soon found out.
Through CoreAlign, I learned what is needed to get to the finish line stronger and faster without having to “try harder”.
CoreAlign is a set of hundreds of exercises incorporating every day functional movements that require the recruitment of the appropriate muscles in sequence to perform the task efficiently and correctly. Through what appears to be some basic exercises, I have built a foundation of strength, balance, and flexibility, all of which were previously lacking in my training program. This addition to my training program has a strong correlation with improved running performance and decreased running related injuries.
The principles and theory behind CoreAlign directly relate to running and running form. I have found them to be extremely beneficial in the following ways:
The exercises in CoreAlign have helped me become a more efficient, stronger runner with fewer injuries, which in the end, has been a far more enjoyable overall experience.
I have definitely gained a lot from CoreAlign by making it a part of my training schedule on a regular basis. I encourage you try it out and discover a deeper understanding of running, and of the running potential you never thought possible.
