Perfection for a Changing Environment
movement is produced by form, not by force. The Core-dinator
focuses on the
accuracy of movement as the most effective means of improving
Core-dinator is a multi-joint, multi-axial transverse plane
isolator designed to improve rotational kinetics, core strength,
endurance, flexibility, power, speed and coordination. The use
of this system will increase movement awareness and the ability
to maintain an ideal center of gravity, base of support and
direction of force correlation in the transverse plane (the
plane of rotation).
traditional exercise equipment is limited to single joint and
sagittal plane motions. We move in three dimensions using multiple
joints and various aspects of the proprioceptive system to function
effectively. The Core-dinator is designed to actively stimulate
the whole proprioceptive system to improve movement awareness
and habits. The unique emphasis placed on the kinesthetic senses
makes the Core-dinator both revolutionary and highly functional.
training mechanisms demand far greater core and peripheral
stability than do traditional, stable exercise mechanisms.
By reducing the friction associated with normal ground
contact, the Core-dinator destabilizes and automatically
demands the user increase core stability and total body
coordination. It also exposes the user to increased proprioceptive
stimulation, thus improving spatial awareness.

stability, function and rotational kinetics.

the movements are slow and deliberate or quick and aggressive,
the base-of-support, center of gravity and force direction components
must be completely controlled for the system to be used effectively.
The Core-dinator will consistently align the moving body to
gravity, ultimately, benefiting all of your day-to-day movements.
The Core-dinator will rejuvenate nervous patterns and produce
neuromuscular harmony. Because 90% of all movements involve
the transverse plane, our bodies must be prepared to select
the proper reaction to a variety of situations. This requires
balance, flexibility, strength, power, and (sometimes) speed.
The fluid coordination of these basic physical elements result
in movement that is dynamic, graceful and efficient.
The physical therapist and movement specialist can use the Core-dinator
to evaluate the kinetic chain of rotation from the arch to the
atlas (vertebrae closest to the skull). Pinpointing and stressing
the functional essence of movement (i.e., neural programming
and muscle sequencing), is perhaps the most important objective
of proprioceptive therapy and training. Since 90% of our movement
involves rotation, the Core-dinator has the unique potential
to unlock the deeply hidden reflexes and motor skills inherent
in every body. The result is an instantaneous recognition and
awareness of dormant motor skills.
Core-dinator is a versatile piece of equipment that can be configured
to provide athletes with a number of training options to improve
rotational skills. With the ability to consistently train in
the transverse plane, the Core-dinator can dramatically improve
muscle-firing sequences, movement awareness and joint alignment.
Furthermore, due to its ability to isolate movements in the
kinetic chain, the Core-dinator is an effective device for identifying
and rehabilitating neuromuscular and musculoskeletal imbalances.
With improved motor skills, the likelihood of injury is greatly
The Core-dinator, a transverse plane isolator,
is a multi-joint, multi-axial movement system designed
to improve rotational kinetics, core strength, movement
awareness, endurance, flexibility, power, speed and coordination.
The split board configuration of the Core-dinator
emphasizes turning in one direction or the other depending
on the board’s setup. For example, if an athlete can
only turn right, the split board configuration can be used
to educate the muscle-firing sequence of turning left.
The raised configuration of the Core-dinator
can be used in early phase education and rehabilitation
of the ankle, knee and hip complex. The angle created
by elevating the center of the Core-dinator creates an
artificially raised arch that realigns the ankle, knee
and hip complex, preventing pronation.
Synchronizer configuration possesses many of the same qualities
as the Core-dinator. It can be used with a 360-degree wobble
board adapter for advanced proprioceptive exercises. Due
to its easy set-up and portability, the Synchronizer is
a great piece to integrate into cable and band exercises.
The Core-dinator can be set up for isolated hip
rotation on a stable or wobble platform. It is an excellent
device for isolating hip internal and external rotators;
and improving the timing of hip, knee and ankle mechanics.
I first saw him at Gold's Gym, Karl and his client were
so focused and the workout so intense no one dared to
get in their way. Wow - what energy - it made me want
to go over and start training with them!!! Since that
day, I have admired and respected the same solid commitment
he gives to each and every client.
the past three years, I have had the fortunate opportunity
to work with Karl one-on-one. Being in the health and
fitness industry myself for the past 15 years, I have
learned more from Karl than from any health and fitness
course, lecture, video or trainer. His understanding of
how the body moves and functions is amazing. It's difficult
to describe in words just how much I appreciate what Karl
provides as a trainer. It's simply something one has to
