Mobility, balance, and stretching are frequently overlooked but are essential to a well rounded fitness and wellness program. Balance is a skill that typically declines with age. However, even among younger people, those with excellent balance perform better in their favorite activities and are at a lower risk for accidents and injury. Preserving balance grows more essential the older one gets as it is in many ways a “use it or loose it” type of skill. It is a skill you can improve it through exercise.
