Progressive Core Strengthening has already helped others relieve pain, restore their strength, and improve their athletic performance, and now the new second edition is enhanced with updated content and instructional videos!   After 15 years of intensive practice and development, I'm thrilled to be able to share this doable, effective training system with you.

With this eBook and course, you'll learn how to activate your core to give your muscles and joints the support they need throughout the day, including when you exercise.  Then you'll take your new movement skills and apply them to a six-level series of workout routines, building all the way up to athletic core strength if you so desire.   Workout videos, instructional videos and illustrations combine into an immersive learning experience so that you can build your strength and perfect your form when you exercise.

1.  An online course with 6 workout videos and 11 step-by step training videos

These engaging video lessons and workouts will train you to develop strong, safe and efficient body movement.  Because of the wide range of instruction in this program, Progressive Core Strengthening can help you restore a basic level of core strength or get you past a plateau if you've already been exercising consistently.  The key to success is the way PCS combines strength training with skilled movement, and these two essential elements are developed more and more as you go through each training module.   

2.  An interactive eBook, covering the entire course, that you can customize to your own strengths and weaknesses.

Your eBook serves as your guide to the course.  It includes instructions for every exercise, along with photos and illustrations.  It has workout overviews with target reps for every routine, and even a chapter where you can look up exercises to create a custom workout if you need one.  For your convenience, you'll be able to navigate through your eBook as easily as a phone app, clicking on chapters and figures to jump between sections of your book! 

Though PCS was created so anyone can use it to develop their strength, professional trainers and their clients as well as therapists or doctors and their patients can enhance their exercise programs with this material.  If you're looking for an exercise method that is challenging and yet targeted to your ability level, then this course is for YOU.   (If you'd rather order the eBook only, click this link.)
