knee-injuryWhen it comes to “being fit” we automatically think of eating right and exercising.   We join a gym or enroll in a class with the hopes of achieving the coveted washboard abs all the while never giving the joints of our body a second thought. But, being fit has much more to do with total health of the entire body than it does with fitting into skinny jeans.

man balancing onbikeBalance is vital for all of our everyday activities from walking to reaching and putting on pants one leg at a time. When we were younger we’d balance train every time we’d step outside to play. From hopscotch, to skateboarding, to bike riding without training wheels, we continually worked our balance while strengthening our core. Even today’s elite athletes recognize the value of balance training as super bowl champs and Olympic medalists alike are quick to note balance & stability training as one of their key elements to success.
