Agility and balance are critical to our well being – at any age.
As we get older our risk of fracture from falls increases – unless we gain and maintain our balance and agility through practice. I have 94 year-young client who I have been working with for the past few years. We have been doing agility drills together. This video demonstrates her progress since we started.
If you are interested in learning more about balance exercises and agility drills, you can visit my blog entry Balance Training for the Young and Young at Heart on my MelioGuide blog.
I asked two of my clients, Aline and Farida, to try five different weighted vests and give me (and you) some candid feedback on each of the products.
Aline and Farida have very different statures, tastes and perspectives. Both are dedicated to their health and follow a regular exercise program.
The video below has a review of all five vests and commentary by me. If you would rather look at the individual video reviews of a specific product you will find them at the MelioGuide blog:
- MiR Weighted Vest
- NYKNYC Weighted Vest
- Walkvest Weighted Vest
- Wasatch Weighted Vest
- Weighted Vest 4 Osteoporosis
Take a look at the video below. It is a review of all vests. I think you may be surprised by the results!
On April 28th, the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario recognized the work that I have done with my clients and fellow health professionals with the 2011 Award of Distinction.
I am very proud of receiving this honor. I would like to thank my clients and fellow health professionals for the support they have provided to me.
The College recognized my work with MelioGuide and my role promoting safe and effective exercise for people with osteoporosis.
