The Gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body, but for many it is also the most underused! We tend to use the front side of our body more in most daily activities, contributing to atrophy of muscles in the back. This can lead to back problems as well as knee problems. And overall body imbalance. The #ClassicalPilates method implemented at Corecraft addresses this. We regularly guide our clients through bridges, reformer squats, reformer side pushes, and other exercises to strengthen the glutes.Then we make sure to stretch out hip flexors in the front which become tight from so much sitting. Getting back in balance can be easier than you think with this simple strategy.
Can't make up your mind among strength training, stretching, foam rolling, Pilates Reformer or TRX? We offer all these platforms at our Pilates & Fitness studio. Conveniently located in the Kearny Mesa office area, work out any time you want, even mid-day.

#HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY12/3/2015
Forget where you put your car keys? The "key" may be through your stomach! Studies have found that a diet high in cholesterol and saturated fat links to impaired memory. This memory loss was associated with inflammation in the brain and impaired nerve cell function. So as we age, it can be hypothesized that being careful with our diet can actually make us less forgetful. So stop eating all those holiday treats and opt for salad!
