When it comes to exercising the body, there’s always the same objectives: faster, stronger, better. For therapy patients, it means getting back to a good place where they can live a healthy lifestyle. For athletes, it means getting to a better place, where they’re dominating their competition and gaining the edge.
But how do you get there? With specified isometric training and a strict regime. AllCore360º has invented just that, by reimaging what core training looks like. It’s not just for therapy patients, and it’s not just for athletes. It’s a transformation for people of all levels of mobility, and it’s done with revolutionary technology that’s engaging the body’s core muscles from the chin to the pelvic floor. The best part? It’s unique, no impact, and efficient. Here’s how it works:
First, you need to reimagine what you think the core is.
Your core is your center, your foundation. It’s the most important part of your body, controlling every step, every reach, every movement that you do. But most people are in the dark when it comes to what the core actually is. In fact, if you search “show me all the muscles in the core” in Google, this is the first result you get: rectus abdominis (abs), abdominal external oblique (obliques Part 1), and transverse abdonimal muscles (obliques Part 2). It’s not wrong, but it’s severely lacking. It’s like asking “what cities are in the U.S.” and the only results that come up are Atlanta, Chicago and New York.
The truth? There are more than 50 muscles in the core, containing most of the musculature from your chin to your pelvis. The list includes the quadratus lumborum, the erector spinea, and lots of other muscles that people have never heard of, much less trained.
Second, there’s a reason we train the core. But it can be done more efficiently.
There’s not a single evolutionary reason for you to do 50 sit-ups repeatedly, and there’s not a single sport that will require you to do 50 sit-ups during a game. So why are they one of the most prominent strength training exercises? Because people misunderstand what the core’s function actually is, and they think that sit-ups will get them there.
Your core exists to move your body more efficiently with a rigid, strong center that acts as your muscular armour that protects from deviations from perfect posture. To do that, you have to activate the deep core muscles, rather than simply the superficial “6-pack muscles.” By isometrically and functionally engaging the more than 50 muscles that surround the spine you stay upright in a balanced posture that protects the vital organs and bone structure underneath. Your core muscles are there so you don’t break ribs, so you don’t damage your liver every time you bend sideways, and so you don’t fall over every time you lift your arm.
The perk to this — and why core training is critical to physical therapy and athletic training — is that a strong, balanced core will move you through space as efficiently as possible. If you’re a runner, correct core training gets you to your finish line faster. If you’re recovering from a back injury, rebuilding your core is going to help restore your mobility.
So, you have to train with your new understanding in mind.
If a traditional crunch, or even leg lifts, aren’t doing the necessary grunt work of giving you the strongest core possible, then what will?
A plank is as close as anyone gets to really working out the core in an efficient way. By defying gravity, the muscles are contracting, stiffening, and working to keep the spine erect. However, a standard planking maneuver only resists gravity in only a few degrees of the core’s 360 potentialities. What is really needed is 360 degrees of resisting gravity to build true and comprehensive strength, balance, and endurance. From the back to the sides to the in-betweens, 360 degrees of contraction ensures that every single core muscle between the neck and the pelvis is getting the workout it needs. Traditional exercises can’t do this, and machines couldn’t do this — until now.
Finally, we’ve discovered a solution that actually works.
If you want to break it down really simply, the AllCore360º rotates your body in a plank position for a total 360 degrees without depending on the extremities. It gives all your core muscles the opportunity to engage and strengthen. It does this without putting weight on your extremities or asking you to move your body. Instead, the point is to stay put.
When you get on the AllCore360°, it’s a little bit like a rollercoaster ride. In fact, we call a session on the AllCore360º a “ride” for that very reason. We’ll secure you into a seat from the waist down with your body at a 90° degree perfect seated posture. Then your job is to hold that posture rigid while the AllCore360º tilts back and rotates 360 degrees. Ultimately, you’re completing a 360-degree rotating plank that can be customized to challenge you at various angles based on your individual abilities.
Each rotation takes one minute, and we recommend ten rotations per session, three times a week. You can come in your workout clothes or your business attire, and it’ll only take ten minutes out of your day. Our passion is improving the lives of our riders. We’ve had our clients experience incredible outcomes: improved stability, coordination, and balance, better posture, and slimmer waists. We’ve transformed the life of paraplegics who had trouble moving at all to being able to manage daily tasks on their own. We’ve empowered athletes — golfers, marathoners, tennis players — to gain an edge.
When a revolution happens, it’s because there’s a real need to do something better. The AllCore360º is that revolution — that core transformation of strength training — that will change the way people move. And we do it one rotation at a time.
