I stumbled upon the magic of Core Fusion completely by accident. I headed over to Exhale Spa under the false illusion that I would be taking part in a beginner’s yoga class (there’s no shame in being a beginner, okay?), but was abruptly denied my soothing, amateur class and told that my only option was Core Fusion. I had to buy special grippy socks was informed that this particular workout would focus on every part of my body. I was terrified.
I put on my grippy socks, grabbed a matt, ball, belt and weights and awaited my fate. I would either fail miserably or receive one of the best workouts of my 21 years in existence. I’m happy to say it was the latter.
Named “Best Fusion Class” by New York Magazine, Core Fusion combines the disciplines of Pilates, yoga, core conditioning and orthopedic stretching to strengthen and lengthen muscles and keep your body looking young and fabulous.
I walked into Core Fusion anxious and terrified, but left feeling confident. I just felt good. I felt like I could go run a mile (I loathe running), or climb a wall or some other form of physical exertion.
But don’t get too excited, this feeling of euphoria was later replaced by a level of soreness I’m not sure I have ever experienced; but the good kind of sore.
Exhale boasts that this class will improve your overall well-being and even your performance in sports; I’ve only done it the one time so I can’t really attest to either, but I wouldn’t doubt it. It’s an incredible, upbeat class that leaves your body feeling heavenly. So buy your $12 grippy socks and start molding that bikini body. Just keep some Advil on hand.
