CoreAlign®

CoreAlign brings the mind-body, rehabilitation and fitness worlds together in one unique apparatus which puts the fun in functional!

A revolutionary apparatus, CoreAlign improves strength, balance, posture and functional movement patterns.

Developed by Jonathan Hoffman, a physical therapist and fitness enthusiast, CoreAlign was created with the belief that the body functions and heals best when movements are anatomically sound and balanced. As a training tool, CoreAlign exercises are designed to create harmony between controlled stability and dynamic mobility, resulting in a strong, healthy and vibrant body. Clients at all fitness levels will feel the difference after one session.

The CoreAlign method stimulates our core stability muscles to fire in perfect timing while performing functional exercises, deep stretches and core-controlled aerobic training. This makes it a perfect addition to a Pilates studio, personal training or physical therapy practice. The method is used for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, performance enhancement and general conditioning for overall wellness.

CoreAlign can be used as a stand-alone exercise practice or as a complement to existing Pilates programming. In either case, CoreAlign can bring endless variety to enhance clients’ experiences, health and fitness.

The CoreAlign frame encloses two tracks and carts, which move independently with smooth resistance (or assistance). The resistance is created by six elastic tubes on each cart. Resistance/assistance is possible in one or both directions. The CoreAlign is extraordinarily versatile with hundreds of completely new and unique movement exercises.
