Improve Your Balance with These 9 Exercises

While heart attack and stroke are the main concerns for those in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, falls are the most common cause of injuries in people ages 65 and up.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 in 4 seniors fall every year.

And get this: An older adult falls every SECOND in this country.

That is a sobering thought, isn't it?

And, at least 20% result in broken bones or head trauma.

But there's good news:

You can maintain and improve balance by doing stability-focused exercises on a regular basis!

Just like you can gain strength by doing dumbbells exercises, you can gain better balance by practicing!

So many people tell me, "I have terrible balance" as though it's an immutable fact and will never change.

It CAN change! But you have to work for it!
