Hi Pete, Thanks for the video, I totally agree with what you have covered today! I'v been a trainer for the past few years now and I have come across so many clients that have serious problems with mobility and stability. So to that end a great video on pointing these factors out within training any client over 65 years. Thanks again, Pete. William.
