10 Years of
Moving Beyond Paralysis™
It is crazy to think that CORE will celebrate 10 years of Moving Beyond Paralysis on August 11th! We began in a small room in a local gym with only two Neuro-Exercise specialists, one assistant, and a BIG mission to help an under served population fight for MORE. Seeing our clients achieve MORE recovery, health, independence, and overall happiness has been the greatest reward through the last ten years.
Over the past decade, CORE has developed a highly respected Activity Based Training program, expanded our training and administrative team, created Aquatics and Group Fitness Classes, incorporated multiple new technologies, added a highly sought after Internship Program, and provided resources and support to the paralysis community. Just like our clients, we remain goal oriented and committed to the original mission and know that the next ten years will see us reach for even more!
We appreciate you helping us continue to grow and learn, but most importantly, for becoming a part of the CORE Family.
Our best is yet to come!
The Best Week of the Year is Here!
Spirit Week kicks off Monday, August 9th to celebrate CORE’s 10 year anniversary! As always, we’ll have themed dress up days (with prizes for best costumes) and CORE Night to wrap up the week on Friday.
8/9 Maui Monday – Wear your Hawaiian Hula Duds!
8/10 Tie Dye Tuesday – Get your groovy gear out!
8/11 COREtastic Day (10 year anniversary) – Put on blue & black to show your CORE pride!
8/12 Hoedown Throwdown Thursday – It’s Western Wear Day! Yee Haw!
8/13 Fandom Friday – Represent your fave fandom!
What would Spirit Week be without Trainer Payback? Help us reach our goal of $1000 for the CORE Foundation and get back at your trainers for all the hard workouts they’ve put you through! This year we are kicking this fundraiser up a notch by including payback exercises and some fun “surprises” you won’t want to miss your trainers doing! All proceeds benefit the CORE Foundation Scholarship Program.
We’ll be wrapping up our 10 year anniversary celebration with CORE Night on Friday, August 13th beginning at 5:30pm. There will be games, pizza, ice cream sundaes, and you’ll get to see the trainers face their punishment from Trainer Payback!

Introducing CORE Fit +, a coach-led HIIT class for ambulatory clients with neurological conditions! This class is designed to challenge your cardiovascular endurance, upper/lower body strength, core, and flexibility in new ways.
Join us for classes are every Fridays at 12pm starting August 6th.

Farewell Summer Interns… except Mark!
Thank you all for all of your hard work this summer! We will miss you, but wish you the absolute best with your continued studies.
The only one we won’t miss is Mark because he has joined the CORE Team as our newest Neuro-Exercise Assistant! Woo hoo!
New: Tilt Table
There’s a new Galileo Tilt Table in the gym that combines partial weight bearing and whole body vibration into one. Ask your trainer if the Galileo is right for you!
CORE Beyond C.H.A.M.P.
Congrats to Annie for being this month’s CORE Beyond C.H.A.M.P.! She’s done a great job getting our new team member up to speed, getting in the pool with clients, and setting up the new CORE Fit + class. Thanks for all of your hard work, Annie!
