HOW COREPRO WORKS
CorePro activates your core by triggering your abdominal muscles to engage to help stabilize your spine.
How does activation happen? The elastic straps pull across your stomach from opposite sides and provide gentle resistance to which prompts activation of your core muscles.
Our patented design works with the natural anatomy and physiology of your body, allows you to maintain full range of motion and helps to stabilize your spine to keep you moving.
Full range of motion – your body does the work in a healthy way.
CorePro is slim enough to fit under clothing so you can wear it anywhere you go!
And you can even toss is in the washer!

WHEN TO WEAR – Before Your Core Fatigues!
WHY OUR PATENTS MATTER – CorePro is Different from Products in Stores Today
CorePro has multiple patents, both design and utility. This means that it’s uniquely different from any other product on the market today. While you may have tried compression sleeves or rigid devices, this product functions differently and we encourage you to experience it for yourself.
CorePro provides relief you can feel better about because it gets your body doing the work. Traditional wrap around back support products do the support work for you. The patented design of the sleeve and elastic are intended to help you engage your core muscles – a major support and stabilizing system for your spine.
CorePro is 100% Made in the USA. We source and sew everything domestically so we can be hands on throughout the process and to ensure the best quality for our customers.
WHAT WE NEED
We need your help to bring CorePro to the people who need it most! We have spent over two years developing the product and produced small quantities to demonstrate it is ready for production. Reaching our goal of $25,000 USD will enable us to source materials, hit our manufacturing minimums and ship the product directly to you.
Stretch Goal – Additional Color
We’d love to offer CorePro in a neutral color so it’s even less visible under white clothing. To achieve this we need to raise at least $100,000. When we reach our stretch goal the color option will be available with your size choice in the fulfillment survey sent at the end of the campaign.
CorePro is made of three key components:
A soft, non-stretch back panel that provides an anchor for the elastic straps, in the same way your spine connects to your deep abdominal muscles.
- Four elastic straps that pull across your mid-section from opposite sides to offer gentle resistance and activation for your core muscles.

- How Does Sizing Work?
- Once the campaign closes, we will send a survey to all supporters to select their preferred CorePro sizes
- CorePro is a unisex product that fits both men and women based on a measurement taken around your belly button.
- CorePro comes in 7 sizes that fit waists that range in size from 25 inches – 47 inches (measured around your belly button)
- What if CorePro doesn’t have my size?
- Currently CorePro accommodates individuals who measure 25″ – 47″ around their trunk at the height of the belly button.
- We recognize that this may limit our ability to serve everyone and we greatly appreciate your understanding in our inability to accommodate everyone at this time.
- How can CorePro help with my posture?
- It can help to cue better posture and activation of abdominal muscles when they are usually dormant (slouching at the desk), especially if you are sitting for extended periods of time.
- When sitting upright, your body needs to use your abdominal wall to keep you in a good position. CorePro is a physical reminder not to slouch as well as an active trigger for your core muscles to maintain proper position.
- Will CorePro mask back pain?
- It will not mask pain. It’s not rigid, and therefore doesn’t limit/block movement. If pain is from movement, this will not restrict movement. If you are experiencing pain, please remember to consult your medical provider
- Is the goal to help me move through pain?
- No. The goal is to re-educate/activate your deep abdominal wall (some of the main stabilizing muscles for your spine). Many people have lost the ability to activate these muscles for stabilization and/or they have an inadequate endurance of these muscles. When the spine is not well stabilized it can cause pain.
- Should I wear it even if I don’t have back pain or back issues?
- If you don’t have trouble with your back, but know you have a core weakness than it can help and be proactive in avoiding possible back issues. Core weakness can be from poor fitness, pregnancy, abdominal surgery, hours at a desk, etc.
- Will CorePro give me 6-pack abs?
- Unfortunately, no. :(
- CorePro is designed to engage your deep abdominal stabilizing muscles under your rectus abdominis (commonly known as 6-pack).
RISKS & CHALLENGES
Very limited risk. We have already established manufacturers and suppliers and produced the product in small batches. The only potential issue could be a delay in production timing due to volume of orders (if we exceed our goal and need to make more than anticipated some buyers may receive the product after others – we will fulfill orders in the same order they were received).
