Make your strength training or body-weight exercises more challenging by adding a balance element. Turn bilateral exercises unilateral. Instead of a regular deadlift, try a single leg deadlift. Instead of doing standing bicep curls, balance on one leg instead of two.

Bodyweight exercises are exercises that do not require free weights; your own weight provides the resistance for the movement. Regardless of age, strength, or experience level, everyone can do it-and everyone can benefit from this type of fitness programming. Movements such as the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up are some of the most common bodyweight exercises.

As a trainer in my 60s, I find it refreshing that there are so many others in my age range, and older, that refuse to just to let themselves go. I love my job!  I have always enjoyed fitness, but I find it especially rewarding to help to inspire women, babyboomers & seniors to stay active.  As women get into their 50s, they sometimes start having balance issues. It may not be very apparent at the start, but it is a little more noticable to them as time goes on.

If you play a winter sport like hockey or football...any sport where you have much of the summer off...you know that after taking a few weeks off at season's end, it's time to start thinking about some sort of off-season training to prepare your body for the new season. If you have kids, you may even consider sending them to sports camps. They are great, no question, but they can be very expensive and often time comsuming.

 Walking, running, going up and down stairs or playing your favorite sport. What do all these have in common? To some degree, all involve single leg balance. Putting one foot in front of the other.
