Workout of the Week
New Year Balance

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury.  Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below.  Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
This workout focuses on balance, coordination, and stability. Focus on completing each exercise at a steady pace with solid form to reset and center the body.
