What Exactly are Balance Exercises?
You may be familiar with the concepts behind cardiovascular and
strength training, but balance exercises are quite different. The
purpose behind balance training is to teach your brain how to quickly
activate the right muscles in your body at the right time to pull you
in the right direction and keep you upright.
- You don’t need to work up a sweat.
Since we’re training the brain more than the muscles, you won’t get
tired and your heart rate won’t rise.
- You don’t need to go to the
health club. You can do balance exercises at home when
it’s convenient for you.
- You don’t need to buy any
expensive equipment. During balance training, the only
equipment you need is a floor to stand on.
- You don’t need to set aside hours
and hours of time. The exercises only take about 10
minutes a day.

Your “Balance Coach”
My name is Mike Ross. As an exercise physiologist at a hospital-based
health and fitness center, I’ve worked with seniors through personal
training, classes, lectures, and consultations.
Over the years,
I noticed that while a lot of people do cardiovascular exercise for
their heart and strength training for their muscles, almost no one does
any exercises to train their balance and help prevent falls.
according to the Center for Disease Control, falling is the most common
cause of injury in people over 60. These falls can result
bones, hospital visits, bills, and even a loss of independence.
realized that if you could train your heart and muscles, you should
also be able to train your balance. So I started developing and
experimenting with different exercise designed to challenge the sense
I wanted people to be able to do the balance
exercises without my supervision, so I knew they had to be simple and
safe, and I didn’t want people to have to buy any equipment, either. I
kept all of this in mind as I developed my exercises.
next three years, during hundreds of hands-on training sessions with
seniors, I tweaked each exercise over and over again to find the right
combination of safety,
simplicity, and effectiveness.
organized the exercises into a system and started running a class
called "Better Balance for Seniors." When so many of my
"students" told me the exercises were helpful, cutting-edge, and even
fun, I knew I had to
share my system with more people.
That’s why I developed The Balance

your balance and reduce your risk of falling.
