As a child, did you ever walk along the edge of a sidewalk, or have a single-leg balance competition with a friend? These are examples of balance training, and it’s never too early or too late to work on it. Often overlooked, balance is a vital part of one’s fitness training. Balance is involved in almost everything you do, whether it be body exercises, weight training, household chores, sports, etc. Rather than waiting until you notice your balance deteriorating, work on it today! Practice in different pairs of shoes, without shoes, or even try with your eyes closed!
