CORE™ Workshops

All CORE Workshops are created by the Merrithew™ programming team.

RECOMMENDED: Complete CORE™ Workshops to receive further programming content and choreography that is not covered in the Foundation course. Currently there are five CORE workshops, and many more to follow. See additional information on workshops offered. All workshops provide CECs from STOTT PILATES® and other organizations.

Please note: Taking workshops alone without participating in the Foundation Course will not qualify you as a CORE Instructor.

CORE Balance & Strength on the Big Blue Stability Cushion™

This engaging and challenging new workout features a large Stability Cushion™, balance disk and a pair of secured handweights. The combination of these props results in movements that are ideal for athletic training or functional fitness. The cushion provides an unstable base that helps activate the deep support muscles of the torso while the small handweights incorporate peripheral resistance to movements of the arms and upper body. The Core Foundational Principles are applied in this fitness-based workout that will provide fun and variety—and a little extra challenge. Participants are encouraged to wear training shoes for this workshop. • Featured in CORE Balance & Strength on the Stability Cushion DVD

In this intense athletic program you will experience a unique full-body workout using the Medicine Ball.

Based on a series of exercise intervals, incorporating the CORE Foundational Principles, you can increase or decrease the intensity of the workout based on the weight of the med ball you choose. Participants are encouraged to wear training shoes for this workshop. • Featured in CORE Power & Stamina: Medicine Ball Interval Training (Levels 1, 2 & 3) DVD

CORE Athletic Conditioning on the Tower Trainer™

Built on the premise of working large muscle groups both concentrically and eccentrically, this unique Tower Trainer routine is a hybrid of traditional athletic training with the foundational work of the CORE philosophy. The goal is to produce proper movement mechanics while challenging the body in different planes of motion, coupled with altered resistance and balance requirements including suspension training. • Featured in CORE Athletic Conditioning on the Tower Trainer DVD
