BALANCE TRAINING 101

Versatility:

Anyone can benefit from balance training. The difficulty can be scaled for any skill level or training goals. Think of the implications of someone preventing a fall or a world class athlete making an off-balanced catch, balance training benefits both.

BALANCE TRAINING, TRAINING THAT TRANSLATES TO LIFE

If you want to move quicker, sprint faster, lift heavier, or express power more efficiently, then you’ve got to train balance, reactivity and motor control, which is what top trainers, athletes and consumers know, and are doing so world-wide. Balance training is a key piece of the programming puzzle to make that happen.

MAJOR BENEFITS

INCREASE PERFORMANCE

Increasing balance increases performance for many athletes. Training the nervous system to react and training stabilizing muscles increases overall strength and performance. There’s a reason why every major athlete incorporates balance training into their training regimen.

Prevent Injury/Falls

According to the CDC nearly 9 million sports related injuries occur every year, and according to the NCOA every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Balance training can significantly reduce your likelihood of injury and risk of falling

Improve Mobility

Inherent in balance training is the recruitment and strengthening of the smaller stabilizer muscle groups, which work to secure your joints through the movements of sport and life to increase overall mobility

Core Muscle Recruitment

A strong and stable core is the foundation of any movement in life or sport. Balance training forces core muscle activation to build a more efficient movement platform for any lifestyle.

As we get older, our sense of balance can be greatly affected, and quite possibly becomes the one aspect of fitness that saves our life.
