Toned, conditioned abdominals can really make a woman feel sexy and confident. When this part of your body – your core – is taut and lean, you carry yourself a lot taller and look better in clothes, particularly midriff-baring crop tops and low-waist jeans. Strong core muscles also translate to better alignment of the back muscles, which means less back pain and a lower risk of muscle injuries. You will be able to do everything, from swinging a golf club to getting a glass from the top shelf or bending down to tie your shoelaces, without stressing your back or pulling a muscle.

Core muscles comprise the muscles in the area of the belly and the middle and lower back. If you want to keep these muscles stable and supple for longer, you need to do more than abdominal crunches.

The Circuit Core at VivaFit can help you achieve a flatter, more toned belly and a firmer back, thanks to its Core Interval Training Class. This 30-minute workout combines high-intensity strength exercises performed on hydraulic machines, and recovery core exercises performed inbetween machine work.

The hydraulic machines are safe, and ideal for people of all ages and physical conditions. Using these machines will not hurt your body in any way, so you are guaranteed a complete workout with virtually no risks for injuries or muscle pain.

The core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to improved balance and stability, which will help you move and perform better when playing sports or during everyday activities.

Originating in Portugal, VivaFit is a boutique gym concept with six outlets in Singapore. Your membership includes not just the use of the facilities, but also guidance and coaching with your weight loss goals, nutrition advice, and more.
