Fitness & Health News from Jazzercise
The Winter Olympics may have come to an end in Vancouver, but the inspiration of Olympic-style athleticism lives on.

Olympic athletes use training techniques that can be applied to any personal fitness routine. Start off by setting a goal.

It doesn’t matter if your goal is using a heavier set of hand-held weights or performing just two consecutive push-ups. The point is to set a goal, then work towards it. Strengthen your core.

Olympic Speed Skater Apolo Ohno claims that core abdominal work helps him achieve 40 mph speeds at death-defying angles on the short track. Core stability aids us in most day-to-day activities.
