Tone Your Core at Home!


Here are a few amazing moves that will definitely help you get the tight core you desire! For best results, make sure you are also eating a healthy diet and doing cardio consistently.

I'm currently staying at my Moms' house in the states and have zero exercise equipment in the house but I am still able to do these moves. No excuses! (:
