Balance, along with flexibility, diminishes with age just like cardio endurance and physical strength. So don’t take it for granted and be sure to include balance and flexibility (stretching) exercises in your workout routine.

And if you have never been a member, come on in and tell the staff at the Reception Desk that you read this blog and want to take Fernando’s class.
Or if you prefer, here are some sites that have balance exercises:

Like always, make sure you are medically cleared before you engage in any new activity. And, also like always, there are no excuses. Just do it! And as gym member, James C., told me, “The only easy day was yesterday”.
