The Core Builder Pro (CBP)

What comes in the box?

“Developing Mother Nature’s Corset… One Day at a Time”

For many golfers, working out to improve fitness can be an intimidating and time-consuming affair. In our busy and chaotic lives, often, we have a difficult time finding the time to gather ourselves and drive to the gym for a workout. Time? What is that? Millennials, I’m not just looking at you because the same can go for some of us that are retired. If you’ve said to yourself “there’s not enough time in a day” once then the Core Builder Pro might be a device to add to your arsenal. Why?

Out of the mind of Jim Porterfield PT, MA, AT (ret.) is a device and a methodology that takes only 6-10 minutes (with proper technique) per day to get a workout in. Mr. Porterfield worked in the physiotherapy industry for decades and has continued to dedicate his life to helping out others, as I can certainly attest. Moreover, Mr. Porterfield has co-authored four books on the subject.

The Core Builder Pro is designed with not only convenience in mind but it’s also a device that is very easy to use. Variable resistance is the key here and the degree of difficulty varies on which strength of tension that you use. The system comes with three coil springs (Red, Blue, and Black), two handles, and paperwork that lists different video tutorials that you can watch in case you have any questions in your mind when it comes to the execution of the exercises.

You might have a question. What exactly is “Mother Nature’s Corset”? Quite simply, that is the area of our bodies that contains all of the core muscles. Without turning this article into a paper on the anatomy of the human body, bodies are connected to each other and they pull on a “sheet of canvas” called the abdominal fascia which consists of six muscle groups that pull on this “canvas”. So, say you’re suffering from back pain there’s a likelihood that your core could be causing the issues.

I’ve personally been using the Core Builder Pro for three weeks and I have seen a definite improvement in my core and back in that time. Early on, I thought that there was a “placebo effect” taking place but that isn’t actually what’s taking place. Bona fide improvements not only mentally have been observed but my abdominal area as my wife recently pointed out. “You have an ab,” she said. Physically speaking I’ve noticed changes in my arms, shoulders, pectorals, and urination habits. I’ve noticed mental  improvements as well.

From a golf perspective, I’ve also noticed that I’m able to fire through the golf ball with more authority. Not to mention, I’m also able to take my dog for longer walks with less pain. You see, what I haven’t divulged is the back surgery is imminent and it’s been me postponing the surgery.

The core is such an integral part of our collective bodies because a large percentage of our bodies are attached to it. The Core Builder Pro can also help with hip and pelvic health as well as aiding incontinence issues.

It’s early but the Core Builder Pro definitely works as advertised. The device sells for $154 USD. For more information about the Core Builder Pro please visit

Alexander Toth came to love golf in a very surprising way. After a car accident left him immobile, he fought and recovered to resume work as a security officer. Then, one morning after a midnight shift he saw Arnold Palmer walking outside of a hotel. They would talk for several minutes. Instead of going home it was at this point that he bought his first set of clubs. Golf was formally introduced to him. Since that chance meeting, Alexander has been immersed in golf. For him, it's more than a game, sport, or a career. It's a passion! Alexander has worked in the golf industry first as a Marshall, an Associate Professional, an Assistant Manager, and finally a Director of Golf. He's also competed on "Developmental Tours” and U.S. Open qualifying and takes great enjoyment teaching golfers. Both instructional and educational. For the past decade, Alexander has written about anything that has to do with golf. From editorials to golf equipment reviews. Reviews that are genuine because, as he says "Honest and unbiased should go without saying". When Alexander isn’t writing about or playing golf, he can be found with his Black Labrador (Muskoka) at his side, on a stream fly fishing, or playing his 12-string guitar. Alexander is looking forward to sharing his thoughts and insights with the Golfing Magazine community.
