Wellness Blog: Powercore


By Nikki Headley

Do you ever feel like your workouts aren’t challenging enough? Do you ever feel like just running will not cut it? If you feel this way you should try powercore, an exercise class at the Wellness Center!

If you’re an early bird this class for you. Powercore starts at 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday mornings and lasts for one hour. If you don’t have class or work until 8:00 a.m. then you can easily make it to this class. I love getting my workout out of the way before the day starts. The class will not only wake you up but it will make you feel motivated and energized the rest of the day.

This class is a challenge. Powercore not only focuses your core, but also it does the job for your whole body. I was sore for three days after my first class. Despite the soreness I felt the benefits powercore offers. This class truly had me looking better after three classes. This class is not easy but it is worth the results. So come ready to sweat.

It’s different every time I go.  I have been every Wednesday this month and each time we do something different. It seems like every week we focus on one part of the body. The first time I did it we stayed on the mats the whole time. The last time I did it we used weights and step boxes. You will love the variety of this class. It is not the same routine each time so your body will feel the effects every time you go.

You realize that getting up early to workout is very rewarding. If you get up at 4:30 a.m. it is easy to see the beauty of the world before it has even awakened. You will also have more hours in the day. There is so much more you can do with the extra time.

Powercore is for early birds, challenge seekers, variety lovers, and people who need more time in their day. Powercore will make you feel defeated the first time you go but if you go a second time you notice that your body is becoming stronger. Slowly you become able to do more than you could have ever imagined in this class. Come to powercore and see what it is all about. You will not be disappointed.
