Agility is the ability change direction without losing speed. This type of training will make you agile for any physical activity that you do and at every age. Whether you are into sports or something everyday, like gardening, agility training will help you reduce your risk of injuries. The key is to stay light on your feet with your abs in and knees soft.

    • Actually forgot to do it his morning after all! Had a very early start and ended up going walking instead of my free weights Joy. However, when I do my weights, might be Monday now, I’ll try it! Or, I could challenge the kids who are visiting tomorrow to do it too!!
