Who can benefit from core suspendtm?

Core Suspendtm is great in a group setting or for personal training. The group classes are an energetic choreographed workout that gives you full body conditioning to burn fat at the same time as toning muscles and exercising your postural muscles.

In a personal training class Core Suspend is adapted to meet your individual needs and goals including the following:

  • Lose weight
  • Flatten your waistline
  • Tone your muscles
  • Improve your fitness
  • Relieve backache or shoulder problems
  • Improve posture
  • Gain strength

What is the core suspendtm system?

Core Suspendtm was developed by OptionsPilates in order to combine the benefits of Neuractm treatments with an invigorating workout that can be enjoyed by anyone. The Core Suspendtm System integrates functional physiotherapy into your workout to maximise use of important muscles without even realising that you are using them. The workout can be done anywhere that you can suspend your Redcordtm Mini.

What can you expect from your core suspendtm?

Core Suspendtm for groups gives clients an awesome choreographed workout that leaves them feeling taller, looser and generally invigorated. Over time the workouts will tone you up, strengthen you and tighten up your waistline. You will notice postural benefits and any other sports that you participate in will benefit from the increased use of your intrinsic muscles.

Specialised workouts are available that work on the specific muscular needs of different sports. Core Suspend for private clients will give you the same great workout as group classes but with the addition of specialised weak-link testing to determine any structural imbalances that may be causing bad postural habits or chronic difficulty with certain daily activities and movements. The exercises and modifications used will be selected specifically according to your needs in order to improve any musculoskeletal problems that you have been experiencing. Private sessions will also include offloading in order to help you progress at your own pace.

How is the core suspendtm different?

Compared to Pilates you will find that your Core Suspendtm is tough and feels much more like hard work! In Pilates you become consciously aware of your body and learn to move correctly during your everyday life. However with Suspendtm the whole process is subconscious and happens automatically as part of the workout.

Activation of postural muscles occurs because of the instability of the Redcord equipment. This instability causes shaking or shivering of the intrinsic muscles around the joints being worked if you have reached the limit of your stable work with each exercise. The neuromuscular pathways that control and monitor the intrinsic postural muscles are activated much more than under normal circumstances when the muscles contract and relax very quickly during this shaking.

This activation automatically gives control of the muscles back to the brain and spinal cord so that you can start using these muscles properly in everyday life and in your sporting activities without even knowing how! Such instability is not found in most other workout methods including most suspension training methods and gym workouts, even when done on gym balls or balance boards because the instability has to cause very rapid shaking in order to work. Slower shaking of the muscles requires conscious control instead of subconscious control so it is far less effective.

What is redcord?

Redcordtm is a range of equipment that allows for exercise in suspension. This can be done in a rehabilitation setting with a station that includes multiple suspension points and a physiotherapy table or in a sports setting at a studio or any where that you can find a frame to hang a portable system.

OptionsPilates Singapore is a licensed distributor for Redcord Norway offering a full range of equipment as well as Neuractm courses for physiotherapists.

What is neuractm rehab?

Neuractm is a rehabilitation technique that has been developed over two decades by Physiotherapists in Norway to address a whole range of musculoskeletal problems. The technique involves using a unique assessment method to determine which muscle or joint that is causing pain or stiffness and then isolating that muscle with a system of suspension points and slings to allow the muscle to be activated in complete isolation. This isolation allows the neuromuscular connection with the brain to be activated so that the subconscious control pathways can start working again.

Once the muscle is reactivated in this way the pain caused by spasms in the muscle will be reduced or gone and full control of movements involving the muscle can be regained. This can be achieved even without the patient knowing which muscle was causing the problem in the first place.

Results from Neuractm treatment have been extensively documented in scientific research in Europe and America. Neuractm can be applied to many different problems, from simple back pain and athletic injuries to lack of muscular control associated with certain types of strokes.

Neuractm treatment is done on a treatment table under a special apparatus that is used to suspend various parts of the body in order to allow completely tension free testing and exercise of the problem areas. This cannot be achieved under normal circumstances and explains why Neuractm can give good results when other physiotherapy techniques have failed.

What problems can neuractm help?

Neuractm Rehab can help with most musculoskeletal related problems, from neck and back pain, aching hips, knees or shoulders to problems with tight joints or limited range of movement and much more.
