Balance for Injury Reduction

With the dropping temperatures out falls fluffy white stuff from the sky, one of the main reasons most of us choose to inhabit this beautiful state, snow. As the snow covers the ground surfaces become less stable and we need to be cautious when we walk, choosing our steps and footwear carefully. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention says 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65 will fall this year. Adding balance exercises into our daily routine can help decrease the chance of falling on these slick surfaces.

Try adding these basic exercises into your routine

1. Stand on both legs closing one eye at a time them both eyes

2. Stand on one leg then progress to closing one eye at a time them both eyes

3. Progress up to doing these exercises on an unstable surface such as a Bosu or a Dina disc

Need help with a balance training routine, ask one of our certified personal trainers for assistance!
