U3A Balance Class
CQU Sydney Street Campus
1st Floor, Building 1,
(Closest to Shakespeare Street)
Would you like to improve your posture, balance and coordination?
It is the unsteadiness that eventually leads to falls and subsequent injuries.
This is a new class commencing on Friday, 5 July at CQ University, Building 1 (closest to Shakespeare Street), 1st Floor. There is a car park off Shakespeare Street.
Having good balance is important for many activities we do every day, such as walking and going up and down the stairs and helps prevent falls. Increasing the strength of the core muscles can help improve your balance and coordination, while also improving your appearance.
Benefits for strength & training, for falls & balance.
Reduce risk of falls; Prevent injuries related to falls; Increase ability to complete daily activities; Improve quality of life; Maximise independence.
Muscle strength begins to decline more rapidly after 50 years of age, with more rapid losses after the age of 65 years. Low levels of lower limb strength are associated with functional limitations in daily living, including an increased risk of falls. Strength training is now widely recommended for older adults to increase muscle mass, strength, and ultimately, independence in activities of daily living.
Balance class is continuing with good numbers since Give It A Go Day. We are sad having to say goodbye to Kathrin as she continues her travels. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for giving her time to help make us fitter.
On the plus side to this we will have Karen Dutton taking over for which we are most grateful.
