Let’s Get Up and Go! Balance 2

As seniors, many of us have issues with balance. Problems with balance can cause falls, broken bones, and can lead to an overall decline in health. We need to make sure we are doing all we can to maintain physical agility as we age so that we can live the lives we want.

If you’re a little shaky on your feet, we hope you have been practicing the balance exercises that Mark Durinsky, Personal Trainer at the Lake House, showed us last week.  To change it up a bit, Mark has a few new exercises aimed at improving balance in this short video. While the Lake House is closed and you’re staying at home, take a few minutes each day to run through these exercises and make them part of your ‘new normal’ daily routine.

If you are hesitant to start trying out exercises on your own, please contact Jamie (jmogus@sipoa.org) at The Lake House to help you hire one of the personal trainers for a few sessions until you can do these exercises on your own. Also, The Lake House instructors have created a series of video exercise programs to help keep us in shape while we can’t use The Lake House.  Please contact Jamie (jmogus@sipoa.org) if you’d like the monthly subscription.

Stay home. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
