Wednesday Wisdom - Balance

Balance (simply defined) = Ability to maintain center of gravity.

Balance is the foundation of all human movement.  The ability to balance impacts all of your daily activity as well as your ability to perform more complex movements.

Balance is said to start declining at the age of 25!  However, how fast this occurs depends upon how much you move your body and practice balancing.  "If you don't use it, you'll lose it."

2 types of balance:
Static Balance (balance while stationary)
Dynamic Balance (balance while body is in motion)

Our dynamic warm-ups include balance components!  If you are doing our workouts and warm-ups you are already training your balance.
