It is important to be strong, but even more important to have coordination, balance, postural control, and spinal stability. The best way to develop this is by doing exercises that use the body as a whole as opposed to training individual muscles separately. Machines in the gym are far less effective than exercises low-intensity, long duration activity such as Strength Up America, Yoga or those using a gym ball.
Exercises such as Strength Up America, Yoga or those using a gym ball start with the core. They demand the activation and control of abdominal and deep back muscles. These exercises engage the mind as you try to balance and coordinate your body. Once your brain learns and integrates this knowledge, you will remember it unconsciously for the rest of your life. This is crucial for both accident prevention and general fitness. This type of exercise is NOT BORING because it takes concentration and becomes a skill that is fun to do.

Exercise optimizes your oxygen intake and helps your body to produce muscle. A body with a low-muscle-to-high-fat ratio causes many poor health conditions, symptoms, of illnesses and diseases. While there is a minimum level of fat that each of us needs in order to stay healthy, the more muscle and the less extra fat that you have, the healthier you are.
