Hello, You say these activities are good for the de-conditioned or elderly. But yet exercises you show are for active healthy young adults. And you give no examples of exercises for special populations. The people you show in these photos don't need to hire a trainer.

Also studies have shown that destabilization exercises although good for proprioception and increased muscular demand, muscle tone is often decreased through these exercises. Please read " Is Functional Training Really Functional" ACSM Certified News July through September 2010.

In elderly people stabilized training is a more functional task and tremendous increases have been made in strength. I doubt there are many people over 40 that can afford to lose muscle mass. Also de -satbelized is to be used maximum only 20% of the total weight training program.

Your comments appreciated. Thank You

love it! Great for clients of all abilities and is the lightest bit of equipment I own! Only restriction is the fact that you can only do it infront of a door that opens away from you which not all homes have.
