If you are working to improve your balance and coordination, Congratulations! Research tells us that falls are the leading cause of injuries in adults over the age of 65. I can agree with this 100% based on many years experience in working with this population. Furthermore, the fear of falling can actually cause people to fall. I have witnessed this as well. Yet, there are so many ways to improve balance in and out of the gym. Using balls, balance boards, rocking boards, a bosu are all great, but you do not need any equipment at all! Talk to a trainer about a program, but practicing standing on one leg, or doing some exercises barefoot are two great ways to work on your balance and prevent falls. Many yoga poses are designed to improve balance as well. I encourage you to consult with a qualified fitness professional before deciding on a balance routine, just as you would with any new physical regimen.
