BODY BALANCE: Benefits for older people
It is known that in our 40s and 50s our ability to balance and perform functional tasks begins to deteriorate. BODY BALANCE IMPROVES FUNCTIONAL ABILITY. The Body Balance programme has been empirically tested providing the evidence which Balancers already know:
When compared to the control, the Body Balance participants saw greater improvement in both their balance and functional ability (eg walking speed).
Integrating this class into our weekly schedule is valuable for so many reasons, for athletes and sedentary people alike. But the benefits to older people through the development of bare foot strength and ‘instability training’ in the prevention of serious falls and associated fractures cannot be over emphasised.
If you want to feel LONG, STRONG, CENTRED AND CALM introduce BODY BALANCE into your fitness regime.
