With time we become less active, and our strength decreases, our balance and stability also begins to deteriorate. Many people often neglect this decline in balance function, which increases their risk of falls. The “Balance and Falls Prevention” program is an exercise-based program, which takes a functional training approach to exercise. The primary goal of this program is to improve your ability to carry out and enjoy your daily activities safely by helping you improve your balance and stability.
This program consists of two (45 minute long) group based exercise sessions each week, for a duration of six weeks. This program incorporates, core and flexibility exercises, as well as cardiovascular and resistance training into the program in order to address each of the factors which may be influencing your balance. The Balance and Falls Prevention Program is a fun class structured to encourage each participant to exercise at their own pace and fitness levels. The instructor will provide modifications for each exercise to ensure that you stay within your comfort zone throughout the program while ultimately achieving the greatest health benefits possible.
