About 18 months ago now we had the pleasure of meeting Ernie who was 88 at the time and averaging a fall every 4-6 weeks. We have been working with him closely since then to increase his overall strength, balance and cardiovascular fitness in order to improve his posture, mobility and ability to perform activities of daily living.
Ernie loves attending the gym to use the treadmill and exercise bike, perform resistance exercises with the cable machine and functional tasks such as balance exercises, sit-stands and step ups. One of Ernie’s favourite exercises is to practice his balance on the wobble board! In addition, Ernie regularly practices his exercises at home and is still very independent, looking after his own yard and garden.
