Meet our September Members of the Month

Meet Bryant and Stephanie Phillips! These newlyweds moved to Durham last year in 2016 and wanted a gym that would challenge them to meet their fitness goals.

Let's hear what they have to say. "We wanted to stay in shape for our wedding in August 2017 so a  few months ago I (Stephanie), was in a rut with my workout routine and decided to join the group exercise classes offered at Core Club. Not only did I meet my own fitness goals for our wedding but I was also re-energized in my workouts! We could not ask for a better gym. Not only are Deb and the core staff amazing and welcoming, but so are the members we have met here as well."

Importance of Proper Form

 It is important to keep a close eye on proper form when working out. If you do not know what is the "right" way, then ASK. It is not worth the injury! Core staff members and trainers are here to help.

When in squat position, whether you are using your own body weight or additional weight, it is important to..

1. Keep your feet shoulder width apart and weight in your heels and never on your toes.

2. Be sure that your knees do not go over your toes when squating. 

3. Keep your hips and glutes pushed backwards and chest out. 

4. Bend your hips and knees at the same time and move your hips back and down while pushing your knees out.

5. Keep your back and posture straight with no rounding or excess arching.

6. Grip the bar firmly, if you are holding weight.

Importance of Stretching




Importance of Stretching
To ensure that all muscles are being stretched to give extra strength and flexibility.

Stretching may contribute to improved circulation and nutrient transport, allowing for greater elasticity in the tissues of your muscles.
Stretching promotes muscle relaxation.
Never stretch past the point of comfort - you may injure  yourself if your body is not ready to stretch that far.
