CoreAlign® Training

Part mind-body, part cardio, part strength — and totally unique!

The CoreAlign was created to enable natural, flowing full-body exercises with independent limb training. It integrates posture, strength, flexibility, balance and control in mostly standing positions. Working on the CoreAlign, you unlearn old habits and reestablish healthy movement patterns deep in your body.

At Paragon, we offer custom CoreAlign Teacher Training for fitness professionals, movement educators and rehab clinicians.

How has CoreAlign helped you?

The CoreAlign makes me focus on using my muscles in a controlled way and also focusing on keeping my balance. It can literally knock you on your back. You have to treat it like you were squatting or benching 300 lbs. You have to focus and make sure you are using your muscles efficiently.

Erik Johnson, NHL Defenseman, Colorado Avalanche

I am a veteran of everything from kettlebells to Pilates and have never had my body respond so quickly and positively to a series of movements that the CoreAlign provides. My torso is strong and I've wakened muscle groups that I didn't even know I had.
