My name is Craig Pearlberg and I’m the founder of Core Fitness Mechanics. As a Corrective Exercise Specialist with a focus on low back issues, nagging running injuries and workplace bio-mechanics I go beyond standard personal training or physical therapy by offering a more thorough understanding of how the body works to get and keep you strong & stable. I’ll give you movements & postures for the home that make sense for building your muscle balance, stability and strength. If your back is a constant threat I’ll teach you what muscles are involved, why they cause you such trouble and how to recover from, manage and prevent the dreaded “back attack”. If the pain you get from running has held you back I’ll assess and correct your injury, technique and muscle balance to help get you running pain free (or, at least, minimized). And if your workplace has physical challenges I’ll come to your location to demonstrate how the body’s core can give the support needed to fight fatigue and defend against disabling on-the-job injuries...even if the challenge is simply sitting all day. My overall goal is to help you balance your muscles, stabilize your mechanics and protect against injury...giving you the confidence you need to get MOVING SMARTER and LIVING STRONGER.
Body mechanics and biomechanics basically refer to the internal and external forces acting on the body and how the body responds to, and moves against, those forces. Our bodies are efficiently designed to handle these forces but any imbalance, i.e. weak or tight muscles, will result in pain and eventual immobility in the feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders or neck. Many of us and our friends or colleagues are all too familiar with the back pain that comes most often from muscle imbalance and improper mechanics. CFM strongly believes that the foundation of any fitness program, posture or movement is the correct use of these mechanics and we strive to give you a clear understanding of how your body is responding to the forces of your life.
CFM combines the concepts or "core," "fitness," and "mechanics" to, not only teach a new understanding of how the body is designed, but also instill safe, effective and rewarding ways of MOVING SMARTER and LIVING STRONGER towards a stronger, healthier you.
CFM provides unique and customized personal & occupational health education for individuals and employee groups.
