Challenge your core with Ballet Body's dynamic, integrative training approach to help flatten the mid-section while building core strength. While cardio and diet are the essential components to reducing abdominal fat, properly training the core is the key element to achieving a flatter belly. As the abdominal muscles weaken with age, pregnancy, and a lack of exercise, the belly begins to protrude outward as a result. Ballet Body's core workout will train the abdominals to act as a corset to tighten and flatten your belly, while strengthening the core at the same time. Ballet Body's core workout emulates a non-surgical tummy-tuck. Leah has designed this workout to target your core from all angles. This complete core workout begins with standing abdominal exercises to challenge the core with balance, movement, and control. Then, work your core with variations in side planks and pilates-inspired abdominal exercises on the mat. Balance the ab-focused exercises with strengthening the muscles along the spine and back before flowing into deep stretching.
