Triple Threat Core Workout

Kelly Pettit, staff contractor and certified personal trainer, recently led challenge participants through this effective core workout.  Keep these moves handy so you always have a workout that targets the core.  Remember, all movement starts from the core.   From getting out of bed in the morning onward, our core initiates all the movements that take place throughout the day.  Hope you find this helpful!
