1. Health
Athletes of all types, recreational or professional, young or old, elite or amateur, all try to stay injury free. Preventing injuries can be as simple as maintaining a solid core fitness.

Core strengthening exercises work the abdomen, back, and major stabilizers of the skeleton. By better controlling you core motion, you will have more strength in your sports, and be less prone to injury. Many professional athletes have shifted their workouts to incorporate more core fitness--it pays off in all activities.
