Balance is a key component of fitness, along with strength, endurance, and flexibility. Balance is the ability to control your body’s position and involves exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright, such as your legs and core.

Though it might not cross your mind, you need a good sense of balance to do just about everything, including walking, getting out of a chair, or leaning over to tie your shoes.

There are various ways to perform balance exercises, like challenging yoga poses, exercises as simple as standing on one leg for a few seconds. Another way of performing balance exercises is by using equipment that needs to be balanced on, for example the Bosu half-circle stability ball or a balance board that is used when playing a video game.

Incorporate balance exercises into your fitness routine, as it is evident how important balance is to a healthy, functional life.
