The Core Stix philosophy is simple, yet profound. It revolves around usable Strength - the holy grail for rehabilitation, active aging and senior living.
When you make a direct correlation between your workout movements and the same performance motions you make day to day, you realize that you are developing more than just strength, you are developing stability, mobility and balance.
Core Stix is one of the most versatile fitness product available for building usable strength. From active seniors to physical therapists, and hospitals everyone is seeing the benefits of the Core Stix system. We deliver usable strength to our clients, while reviving their independence.
Core Stix + NASA
Mike Kadar, a Strength and Conditioning Coach in the NHL for 19 years, was in search of a way to train himself and his athletes in a way that would have the highest possible impact on their performance.
To help develop a revolutionary solution, Mike enlisted the help of a NASA design engineer who worked on NASA’s Space Shuttle program.
The original concept came from the idea of developing “farm-strength,” a highly usable strength that carried over through all daily activities and sports. Mike spent his childhood growing up on a farm in Canada. Part of his chores were building cattle fences, digging holes for fence posts. It involved moving a heavy steel bar in a circular motion to dig a hole and he realized that not only was it a complete core workout, but it also helped him become a stronger hockey player in the years that followed.
Over the years, we engineered a heavy-duty, lightweight, and portable system that uses fiberglass stix to train the body to build this usable strength. After research trials and testing, the Core Stix System was born and started to be used by trainers, senior living establishments, physical therapists, and hospitals looking for a more efficient way to enhance stability, increase mobility, and build usable strength.
