Here's why you should get ballin':
A stability ball works your abs way more than regular crunches do. Plus, use it in place of a bench for strength moves and your core gets a workout — you'll engage your deep obliques and lower-back muscles to stay in place.

The Stay Well At Home program is a 4-month long multifactorial fall risk reduction program aimed to help older aduls to stay safely and independently at home. The program includes in-home visits with a qualified health and fitness professional who will be perforeming initial assessments and screening as well as providing targeted exercies to enhance balance and mobility, muscle strength, flexibility circulation, and joint range of motion.
Bodyweight exercises are exercises that do not require free weights; your own weight provides the resistance for the movement. Regardless of age, strength, or experience level, everyone can do it-and everyone can benefit from this type of fitness programming. Movements such as the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up are some of the most common bodyweight exercises.

Flexibility training is very important and the many benefits include decreased risk of injury, decreased chronic muscle tension, decreased low-back pain, and increased functional ability. Stretching is a very effective way to increase flexibility even as age increases. When performing stretching, the focus should be on muscle groups (joints) that have a reduced range of motion. Stretching should be performed a minimum of 2-3 days a week.
