Boost Your Balance is filled with non-intimidating exercises to increase people’s strength and flexibility as well as their balance.
The book contains 67 exercises though some have variations to make them more difficult as your fitness improves. Thirty-one are for flexibility. Twenty are for strength. Sixteen are for balance. The exercises start ridiculously easy (sitting in a chair, lying on a mat) and progress gradually to planks and lunges. Many of the exercises are done in chairs and so can be done by wheelchair-bound or standing-challenged seniors too. Each exercise has a clear picture showing the movement. There is also a four-week plan of thrice weekly exercises to get you started.
The year is half over. My New Year’s Resolution of more exercise is dusty sitting on its shelf. My Ring Fit Switch game sits lonely beside it. The exercises here are a way to increase my balance, flexibility and strength but also fulfill my resolution. It’s a win-win!
Boost Your Balance is great for the seniors in your life. Everyone needs some simple workout routines. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to the author for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
