Sometimes serendipity turns a mundane moment into a milestone. Just ask Mike Kadar, strength and conditioning coach for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was digging fence post holes with his father on the family farm when perspiration lead to inspiration.
“I had to take a long metal bar that weighed roughly 30-35 pounds, drive it into the ground, and rotate it until the hole was big enough to place a post,” remembers Kadar. “It was then that the idea came to me. Why not fix the rod to the ground and have it flex in any direction?”
Flash forward twelve years, and from those humble beginnings comes Core Stix, an innovative training tool that truly stands apart.
