One of the leading causes of injury in the older adult population is related to falling episodes due to underlying balance and strength deficits. As we age, we lose skeletal muscle mass and bone density, both of which are factors that can lead to falls.  Adding a resistance training and balance routine two to three times a week can have a significantly positive effect on function, mobility and independence, leading to improved satisfaction levels and quality of life. Oftentimes, 20 minutes of structured, well-designed physical activity can be a huge benefit to our older adult population.
