Balance Training for Beginners
This program is designed to improve the balance and help reduce the risk of falling for middle-aged and older adults with little or no exercise experience.
In Balance Training for Beginners, we will work on improving your static balance through simple poses and exercises. You will also learn tips and resources to use in order to help you feel more stable and decrease your chance of falling in daily life. Almost every exercise comes with a way to Scale Down (make it easier) or Scale Up (make it harder), so it truly is modifiable to fit most people!

These are some frequently asked questions about the program. I will update this section as more questions come in!
How Long Are the Routines?
Each video is about 10-13 minutes long.
How Long Is the Program?
This program is 4 weeks long if you do one video each day. It will take longer if you take time off.
- It’s important to emphasize that you are a HUMAN and not a machine! You are busy, and life happens. Just do your best to show up and complete the program at a pace that works for you. It’s totally fine if this takes more than 4 weeks to complete! Don’t ever beat yourself up. Be kind to yourself. Celebrate the small wins. =)
Should I Do More Exercise Outside of This Program?
This exercise program does not focus on cardio, total strengthening, or flexibility. Therefore, it is a good idea to begin an exercise program that focuses on all of these components.

What If I Become Sick, Sore, or Injured?
If you are…
Sore: Sometimes when we exercise, we can develop soreness in our muscles that may linger for several days. This can be particularly true when you get to the latter half of the program and begin doing single-leg balance stances. If your lower body muscles are sore, take a day or two off until the soreness subsides.
Sick: Take as many days off as you need to until you are no longer sick. Being sick and fatigued can sometimes cause exercisers to make mistakes that can result in injury.
Injured: If you experience an injury while doing this program, do not do any routines involving the injured part of your body until you see a doctor and get medical advice on how to proceed.
What Can I Do if the Website or Videos Are Slow?
If the website and videos are taking a long time to load or keep pausing, try some of the following tips:
- Close all your other internet tabs. Having multiple tabs or windows open for your internet browser can slow down your computer and make other websites take a longer time to load.
- Close other programs and applications on your computer. If your computer has multiple programs open, it has to use power for multiple things and can create slowness across the board.
- Try another browser. For various reasons, your current browser may not be working properly. Try another one such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari (Apple).
- Try clearing your cache. If the above three options are not working, try clearing your cache on your preferred internet browser. This article here explains what cache is and how to clear it for optimal computer performance.
- Check your internet connection. If none of these options are working, you may have a weak internet connection. Wi-fi is not as strong as using an ethernet cable, so you may want to connect your computer to your internet router through an ethernet cable.
How Can I Watch the Videos on My TV?
As of right now, the platform I host my videos on does not have the capability to cast videos to your TV. However, you can connect your phone or laptop to your TV through an HDMI cable.
Here are some links to purchase HDMI cables for various devices from Amazon (you can find these cables in other large stores as well):
**Please note: Due to technology variations among different devices, the following cables may not be compatible with your specific device. Always check the specifications to see if they are compatible with yours! You can also search the internet for “_____ HDMI cable.” Fill in the blank with your device name!
What Should I Do After the Program Is Over?
- Continue to work on your balance. Tips to continue working on your balance will be covered in the very last routine on Day 28.
