Instead of pumping iron to build strength, it is high time you started pumping rubber. If you haven’t had any luck toning your core lately, a great fitness tool to try would be the Core Transformer, a 3-dimensional fitness strategy that strengthens your body through resistance.
The Core Transformer does exactly what its name suggests—it enhances cardio performance and transforms the core. An eco-friendly product made from sustainable rubber trees, the Core Transformer is a tubing system that is used to crank up Pilates and yoga-inspired moves by way of constant resistance. It is a long rubber band with handles on each end to pull and push in different directions, building your strength and working your core. The band is literally one of the best ways to strengthen your midsection without having to alternate between cardio training and body sculpting each week.
On top of everything, the Core Transformer is a cinch to pack up and take anywhere, be it hotels, parks, or the gym. The training is sport-specific and highly aerobic, so while golfers and baseball players can use it to strengthen their swings, the average person can use it to build muscle and shred fat. I use my Core Transformer regularly and love the fact that you can make up all types of new exercises with it. My favorite is to mimic different sports moves, such as swimming strokes, karate kicks and tennis serves.
So who is the developer behind this versatile band? Linda Larue, a registered nurse and athletic trainer with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine. She is the creator of the “crunchless abs” methodology and has been featured as a Fitness expert in Shape and Fit Pregnancy magazine, and regularly contributes as a freelance writer. Her goal with the Core Transformer is to emphasize easy, fun and effective training that provides optimal health.
