Physical balance is an important part of a healthy life. It’s what keeps you moving the way you want to move. Most people don’t think about the importance of balance training until their balance is compromised! At Pure Vibe, we help you build the foundational blocks for physical balance using Whole Body Vibration training.
According to Health Canada, every year one in three Canadian seniors will fall at least once. And, about 20 percent of injury-related deaths among seniors can be traced back to a fall. With this information in mind, we encourage you to prioritize building your balance in your youth and keeping it strong and healthy as you age.
The key factors for developing and maintaining healthy balance are:
- Muscle Strength
- Bone Density
Health Canada goes on to say that staying active is an important component to healthy balance – and that a few short exercise sessions throughout the day are as valuable as one longer session.
When you step onto a Whole Body Vibration platform, the movement creates an unstable surface for your body to work against (while providing a safe environment for this to occur). When this happens, it provides the opportunity for your body to strengthen your neuromuscular system to help build better stability and balance.
Whole Body Vibration helps activate and strengthen the muscles used for posture while improving balance and flexibility in your legs.
Pure Vibe strives to offer small classes to suit a variety of people’s needs. We have classes geared towards those wanting something slower paced to help build the core components for balance all the way up to classes for athletes wanting to maintain and keep their balance strong. Each class goes through exercises that get you moving in a coordinated way – it’s about being active and building stronger muscles. It’s never too late to work on your balance.
At Pure Vibe we are focused on building the foundational blocks for a healthy life that allow you to move the way you want to. Take care of your body now, and your body will take care of you!
