What the Experts Say
Endorsed by the top leaders in the areas of fitness, rehabilitation and sports performance the Core-Tex™ provides an environment to create exercises unique to the population you work with and can exponentially enhance the neuromuscular demand of many "traditional" exercise.
“A unique feature, of the Core-Tex™ that I think I enjoy the most is its ability to move very freely in the transverse plane. It’s also a wonderful tool to utilize to simulate a lot of the things that our body does when it’s airborne. It’s a great piece of equipment that creates an environment that simulates some really cool biomechanical reactions that you just can’t do on any other surface because it’s truly reactive…When you’re on the Core-Tex™, you’ve got to sense it - you got to feel it you got to smell it and sway with it in all three planes of motion and immediately you realize that you have to react to this thing!”

If you are trying to differentiate yourself from other trainers and offer the latest in training, the Core-Tex™ is a must tool for your toolbox.”

"Dear Core-Tex™, the love affair is on with me, my athletes and my clients. This unique performance and rehab tool has become a fixture in our total approach to athlete conditioning, injury prevention and rehabilitation. My only regret is that I did not focus my attention on this product long ago and mainstream it into our programming. Now that I have taken the time to experience and understand its benefits, it has become a permanent training tool in our arsenal. Anecdotally, working for a brief period of time on the Core-Tex™ opened my hips and created mobility that I have not felt for years. It was a 'freedom of movement' that I can say 'felt liquid.' To be able to create mobility with stability, and reactive movement with unlimited variability in movement options, as well as place positive stress on tissue and joints, all in a dynamic environment where the challenge can be progressed or regressed, creates a 'must have' for my training and conditioning needs."

“The first thing I noticed with Core-Tex™ is how children mastered moves naturally while adults demonstrated more bad motor habits in serious need of correction. Who identified gaps in human abilities and the method to correct them? Anthony Carey, who is a first class innovative leader in fitness, sport, and rehab, clearly on top of his game. Core-Tex™ the product and exercise methods it permits, clearly reflects that. For the past 20 years Twist Sport Conditioning education has encouraged training "movement not muscles". For our athletes, we love tools which facilitate motor control, movement precision, and speeding up neural loops for a more responsive body. With its transverse plane movement, Core-Tex™ engages the myofascial slings. In the future you will hear alot more about MF slings anchoring core movements and as well how a focus on myofacial lines net the most natural, fluid and energy efficient movement. Anthony is once again ahead of the game. Let him position you ahead of the competition and gain an important edge for your clients.”

"Having had the opportunity to train with an early prototype before the Core-Tex™ was widely available, I knew this product was a winner the first time I experienced it. The Core-Tex™ challenges the body in unique ways that makes it an important new product for rehab, fitness, and sports performance training. The new production Core-Tex™ is simply outstanding - definitely on my short list of favorite training tools!"

"The Core-Tex™ is a revolutionary piece of equipment that can help anyone improve their functional movement capabilities. The Core-Tex™ uses its unique design to train the body to learn how to decelerate as it reacts, reaches and moves away from it's comfort zone. This is why the Core-Tex™ is a must have tool when helping to activate the body's responses required to be truly functional, strong and pain-free."

“The core is more than just the abdominals; it truly is integrated into every movement from the great toe up through the cervical spine. There is nothing on the market today that can recruit the core more effectively through all three planes of motion than the Core-Tex™. Whether the activity is from the standing vertical position, or a horizontal prone or supine position, the Core-Tex™ will train the core musculature most effectively. It is challenging, complex, and most of all, fun. This should become part of a comprehensive training tool spanning the rehabilitation to high performance athletic settings!”

"Core-Tex™ is awesome. I use it as an integral part of my own workouts three times a week. It helps my chronic low back pain stemming from a bicycle vs. car accident. Core-Tex™ is an important part of the MMA Conditioning Association curriculum. My organization always utilizes Anthony Carey's knowledge and technology when it comes to corrective exercise and balance. I highly recommend Core-Tex™ for all fitness pros and sports conditioning coaches."

"When it comes to balance and stabilization training equipment accept no substitute; the Core-Tex™ is my favorite tool to train with. It not only challenges my clients to master balance and stabilization, but they have fun doing it. The Core-Tex™ helps enhance the results I am able to obtain with all my clients. From sedentary to professional athletes and all populations in between the Core-Tex™ provides the perfect (real world) environment to challenge all three planes of motion while at the same time offering translational forces. Talk about transfer of training effect (functional training)!"

“The Core-Tex™ can be used in a personal training or coaching setting -pretty much anything you can do on the floor can be done on the disc (with or without the handle guide and with or without training tools such as medicine balls and tubing): feet on, hands on, standing, kneeling, half-kneeling, planking…. In addition to adding a fun variety to your personal training studio or athletic training facility, this gem will make your clients and athletes perform better!”
"The Core-Tex™ is one of the most effective and challenging tools to come into our industry. It encourages the body to react through simply challenging the stabilizing mechanism with gentle, subtle movement. The level at which you can progress these movements is unlimited. It is a powerful tool that creates interaction of the entire body; from the toes to the nose. If you want to challenge the body in all facets, from strength to balance from the elite to the physically challenged this is the tool for you. Don’t wait get on the Core-Tex™ NOW . "

"The Core-Tex™ is a fantastic tool that helps me train in the transverse plane in a unique way. As well as being a surface I can make predictable in three planes, it is also something that my clients love. It's so refreshing to use a piece of equipment that is built around how a client moves; and, how I want to train them, rather than trying to refresh old exercises with something new in your hand or to stand on. I'm such fan of Core-Tex™, that I purchased a unit for each of my Personal Training studios, and utilize the Core-Tex™ in most of our FASTER Health and Fitness course videos."

"If you're a fitness and rehab professional interested in improving functional needs, take a serious look at the Core-Tex™. We live in a 3 dimensional world. It only makes sense that we train and rehabilitate in this same manner. The Core-Tex™ can be utilized as easily for corrective exercise as well as performance enhancement. Every year we see new exercise equipment and their claims of improving fitness and function. The Core-Tex™ delivers."

"Core-Tex™ Pivoting on Balance Board Detection through muscular system whilst concentration and Cognitive Conditions. (Total Immersion). We are putting the body in a situation where the system has to stabilize and balance using fine motor control on the muscle fiber connected with the stabilization procedure. Building and re-enforcing the electrical and mechanical systems and opening a gateway for changes in the Neural pathways and subsequently the motor nerve circuits mainly in core and lower body."

"Since using the Core-Tex™, I’ve seen marketed improvements with my athletes. My post operative Water Polo players have been more efficient and stronger when returning to the pool. The Core-Tex™ is challenging, adaptable, and fun for our patients and athletes. I incorporate it with every rehabilitation and maintance program I create.

"In my 32 years of PT practice, the Core-Tex™ is one of the few clinical devices that have proven to be a real breakthrough. It combines the capabilities of other products into a well-designed, “all-in-one” device. The Core-Tex™ enables the progress of my therapeutic exercise and balance treatments to new levels. Most importantly, it is both effective and fun for my patients of all ages. The platform allows me to perform joint mobilization, range of motion, assisted flexibility and stabilization techniques that were previously unavailable. The Core-Tex™ allows me to progress many of my patients through the rehabilitation process more rapidly because it challenges their functional and biomechanical issues in all planes of motion simultaneously. The Core-Tex™ consistently demonstrates its value for patients of all skill levels in returning to their previous levels of sports performance."
