Strengthening your core at the local park has fantastic health benefits. Your core muscles are the flexible connectors of your upper and lower body. Properly built up core muscles increase your body’s strength. A stable core also improves stability and balance, helping to prevent falls or injuries during sports and athletic activities. Having a robust and flexible core improves almost everything you do:

  1. It helps protect the central nervous system and internal organs in the body.
  2. It helps prevent future injuries by strengthening your muscles and making you less prone to injuries.
  3. It reduces back and body pains.
