Stability and Balance Training


Balance is the ability to control the body’s position, either stationary or while moving. Balance is a key element of fitness. You need good balance to do just about everything, including walking, getting out of a chair, and leaning over to tie your shoes. Strong muscles and being able to keep yourself steady make all the difference in many things you do every day.

Stability training is very important if you are just starting out with an exercise program, if you are an athlete, or if you are just looking to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Stability training can be as simple as doing an exercise on a single leg and/or using stability balls, bosu balls, or indo boards. Can you stand on one leg? Do you have good posture?

Incorporating balance training into your workout regimen will have positive effects on your body and health. No matter what age you are, how active you are, or whatever life throws your way, stability training is very important. Here are some benefits of balance training:

* Strong core
* Improved balance
* Helps break plateaus
* Improved strength
* Injury prevention
* Increased sports performance
* Body awareness
* Coordination
* Joint stability
* Reaction time
* Power
* Agility
* More muscle recruitment
* Improved posture
* Prevention of falls

Let’s not forget that balance and stability training is challenging, but it can be down right fun!
