What’s the relationship between winter weather and a strong core you may ask. Well the two are actually closely connected. As the snow fell in Vancouver today I noticed people walking very gingerly. Why? They didn’t want to slip. When it comes to staying upright we usually think that it is simply a matter of putting one foot ahead of the other — and that’s true. The thing we usually don’t realize is that balance is largely due to our core strength. It is our core that keeps us vertical in any kind of weather. Without core strength supporting our upper bodies we would simply flop over. While there are many ways to build core strength, the easiest one I know is to sit on a Sitfit. Of course, I’m a little biased. But having used one for the past three years, I have experienced the benefits first-hand.
