Are you losing your flexibility, mobility and/or balance?
Flexible & Mobile:
Stretching keeps muscles long and flexible. That increases range of motion, reduces the risk for muscle and joint injury, reduces joint and back pain, improves balance, reduces the risk of falling, and improves posture. Having good mobility is an integral part of any fitness plan!
Every year, about one-quarter of adults older than age 65 experience at least one accidental fall. The impact of a fall can be devastating. Good balance requires the coordination of several parts of the body: the central nervous system, inner ear, eyes, muscles, bones, and joints. Problems with any one of these can affect balance.
It is critical to challenge your balance!
