Foot Strength and Stability with Core-Tex

The small stabilizing muscles in your feet and ankles, are often neglected in traditional workouts, particularly when rigid shoes are worn. Foot strengthening exercises on Core-Tex can lead to improved balance, stability, and overall movement quality.

With all of the variable motion available with Core-Tex, the joints of the foot and toes and the intrinsic muscles of the foot are exposed to positions and demands that optimize foot stability and function. 

Using both "known" foot strengthening exercises and exercises only available to Core-Tex, users can benefit from the patented motion to build foot strength and stability.

In addition, using Core-Tex for foot exercises can help to prevent injuries, particularly those related to the lower extremities. By strengthening the muscles in your feet and ankles, you can help to reduce the risk of sprains, strains, and other common injuries that can occur during physical activity. This is particularly important for athletes, dancers, and other individuals who put a lot of strain on their feet and ankles during their regular activities.

This may lead to a misinterpretation of Core-Tex being "too advanced" and a missed opportunity to scale your balance progressions in a way that allows the user to be successful.
Core-Tex plays well with others.  With the increased interest and research around dual tasking of cognitive exercises plus motor challenges, Core-Tex is emerging as a clinical favorite for many reasons:
