Healthy Aging Starts With Staying on Your Feet

Fall Prevention begins at 40 years old. Balance is something almost everyone neglects until it becomes a problem to their health. As we get older, our strength begins to fade, and our balance starts to weaken. In fact, every 1 in 3 people ages 65 or older suffers a hard fall due to lack of balance and mobility.

     My name is Tippy Missick. I have been in the fitness industry for over 45 years. My passion has always been to help individuals live healthy and active lives well into the future. My education and experience consists of many fitness certifications including Personal Training, Exercise Therapy, OTAGO Balance Specialist and a degree in Gerontology/Physical Education.

     In 2011, my father passed away after losing his balance and falling. I was devastated and swore that I would dedicate my life to teaching others the crucial survival skills for active aging.

When you were a toddler, you were expected to fall down often as you learned to walk, run and play.  But as we get older, when we fall, we don't bounce back up and get going. It is much more difficult just to get up, let alone get going! 

Falling can have serious consequences, affecting your health and quality of life. But there is good news...even though you may think that you are too young to be concerned about falling, it is never too early to start on reducing your risk of a fall.  It is my job to teach you simple skills you can do to help decrease the risk of falling and prevent serious side effects from that fall. 

The most important thing to remember is that lack of balance and reduced mobility is a major cause of falling. I teach my clients simple dynamic and static balance techniques that will improve balance and mobility in a very short time. These exercises work if you do them faithfully every day, this is not a "one and done approach". I also have found some holistic tools that I include in my program that help improve balance, mobility, and build your self confidence. The fear of falling is also another major cause of taking a fall.
