The Core Exercise Studio in Comox combines individual attention in a group setting for clients seeking specialty training in the area of health and fitness.
The Valley has an extensive pool of resources when it comes to individuals knowledgeable in the art of health and fitness. The Core bridges the gap between the medical and fitness fields in order to provide programming for people living with various health conditions.
Medical exercise specialist Mia Jerritt has developed five unique programs based on protocols established by The American Health, Fitness and Rehabilitation Professionals in Sacramento, Calif. Happy Back was developed for people living with low back conditions; Cranky Hip and Knee is for those with hip and knee conditions; Posture 101 is for people with mid-back and shoulder conditions; Chronic Pain is for many forms of severe chronic pain, and The Transformation Project is for people wanting to make permanent health and fitness changes. Each post-rehab program is designed to stabilize joints and strengthen from within in order to prolong the chances of surgery or improve the outcome of surgery. Although these programs are designed for people living with conditions, many participants simply join because of the small group format with the big challenge component. Each class has a balance, flexibility, strengthening and core stability component and each activity is modified for each individual within the class. Classes are limited to a maximum of nine participants.
Although Jerritt has worked with injured clients for 15 years she also has an extensive background working with athletes and people wanting to make major lifestyle changes. Fall programming at The Core will resume the week of Sept. 10.
