Improve Your Balance

Balance is crucial to reducing risk of injury, especially as you age. Luckily, balance is also one of the easiest physical attributes to improve. My personal training clients frequently have dramatic improvements in their balance in as little as one session. Here are a few tips to quickly improve your balance:

Assisted Balance Training: While standing, put two hands against a wall, stand on one foot, once you gain stability, remove one hand, then once you gain stability…

Body Weight Balance Training:  Stand in a place that doesn’t have a lot of movement going on around you. Find a focal point directly in front of you to look at (not a mirror), and stand on one foot.

Resistance Balance Training: There are many forms of this, some of my favorites are: Swiss balls, stability pads, and bosu balls, but only when you’re ready.
