Tipping Toward Balance: A Fitness Trainer’s Guide to Stability and Walking
by Tracy Markley
In this book I share eight exercises and the reasons why they have helped clients regain their balance.These particular exercises have helped clients stoptripping and falling and to regain the ability to feel safe in movement again. I also share some short stories of clients who all have various reasons for losing their balance.A range of personal and specific factors may play a role in the body’s balance and walking gait as they become off-kilter. This leaves people feeling unsafe in their movements, which, in turn, causes the walking gait to change and slow down because they feel out of balance or unstable. At this point, individuals may find themselves tripping often and/or falling down.At any age, but often as we get older, the body can become weaker.
