“My Balance Has Improved Beyond All My Hopes”

"Dear Mike, I am writing to thank you for the help I have gotten from your balance exercises.

After a long bout of health troubles I lost my balance and the doctors told me I would not recover it. I was devastated and started looking on the computer for any help I could find.

It was there that I found your exercises and started them as soon as I could. As you said, they have become a part of my daily life, and I now start the day with them.

My balance has improved beyond all my hopes and continues to do so. I can’t thank you enough for your help. Your book is really great. Best wishes,"

  -Margret, Australia

So 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.

What Would Better Balance Mean to You?

Live an active lifeBetter balance can help you:
  • Reduce your chances of falling.
  • Live an active life.
  • Stay independent.
  • Keep up with your friends and family.
  • Walk more confidently with a decreased fear of falling.
That sounds good, right? That’s why I want to show you how to train you balance with The Balance Manual.

"I recommend these exercises to all who want to improve their balance. Simply put, they allow me to do so much more, and I feel better."

  -Joe M., 73

Meet Your “Balance Coach”

Mike Ross - "The Balance Coach"Hi. 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.

Yet according to the Center for Disease Control, falling is the most common cause of injury in people over 60. These falls can result in broken bones, hospital visits, bills, and even a loss of independence.

I 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 of balance.

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.

Over the 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.

Finally, I 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 Manual. I want to help you train your balance and reduce your risk of falling.

Doddie Decided to Take Action and
Train Her Balance With The Balance Manual

"Mike, thank you for The Balance Manual. When I finished reading it I was very surprised to find you did not need to spend a good deal of time training your balance. Though the exercises look simple, I found them to be a bit of a challenge at first, but was quite delighted to see an improvement after practicing. Consistency is very important.

The exercises can be done in a rather short time which allows me to keep at them. Some of them are fun to do when standing in line at the check-out counter. It gives me confidence to know I'm secure on my feet when I'm in a crowded environment.

I find the Balance Workout Log to be very helpful. It keeps me working on different positions and allows for an accurate record of positions done so I can create new combinations.

The step by step pictures that show how to get up after a fall are a very helpful visual, and the room-by-room Fall Prevention Checklist for the Home helps one take stock of one’s living space.

All this information will keep us senior citizens capable of living a long and active life."

  -Doddie Kobs, 78, great grandmother of 3

Step 2 – Increase Leg Strength

Get stronger legsThe Balance Manual will also teach you how to strengthen your leg muscles to help prevent falls in a special chapter called...

The Five Best Exercises for Stronger Legs.

Your leg muscles play a key role in many of the activities of daily life, whether its, getting into your car, getting up out of a chair, picking something up off the ground, or going up stairs.

Strong leg muscles are also crucial when it comes to preventing falls.

In light of that, I’ve hand-picked the five most effective exercises for improving leg strength in people over 60.

Each exercise is explained and demonstrated with pictures, and you can do them at home without any equipment. Just doing these five exercises two or three times per week can make a tremendous impact on your leg strength and quality of life.

"The exercises have helped me with both balance and strength. I use them every week, and afterwards I always feel refreshed and stronger."

  -Thomas R., 76

Step 3 – Reduce Tripping Hazards in Your Home

Do you know where the most common place is that people fall? At home! The good thing is that many of these falls are preventable if you know what to look for.

Step 3 of my program is The Fall Prevention Checklist for the Home which guides you through a room-by-room assessment of your house and helps you eliminate potential tripping hazards. There are over 20 useful tips on the checklist.

Finally, though we hope you never fall, it’s good to have a plan just in case. This chapter also covers:
  • How to minimize injury if you fall.
  • How to assess yourself and your surroundings after a fall to prevent further injury.
  • How to get back up from a fall. Sometimes the worst part about falling is trying to get back up. I’ll show you a step-by-step process for getting back on your feet.
Having a plan for after a fall can help reduce the fear of falling that so many people have.

"Mike, I am 86 years old and have had to give up golf this year because of my physical weakness and lack of good balance.  I really had trouble hitting out of a sand trap!

I searched the internet in vain until I found an article explaining your Manual, and I decided to look into what you had to offer.

I have started reading and using your Balance Manual and it is exactly what I need to help maintain and improve my balance.

Your manual is truly a gift to us older folks who need to keep going."
