A special concern for many seniors today is Fall Prevention. Taking one of the achievements above, ‘Improved Balance’ Lori and her trainers at Lori Michiel Fitness offer help to those in our community who wish to address their own concerns about falling.

Even in Your 30s and 40s, Specific Exercises Help Prevent a Big Danger of Aging

You know it when you feel it.

If you find yourself needing to sit down to take off your shoes, it might be time to start paying attention to your sense of balance.

People don’t usually think about balance until they fall or know someone they never thought would. There are signs that cannot be ignored such as holding onto hand rails to go up and down the stairs, wavering as you step into a pair of pants, missing the lip on a curb. These situations can be an early warning sign that your stability is starting to decline.
