Regular Exercise

StandingTall recommends 2 hours of balance exercises per week for at least 6 months, because this is what research has shown is required to help prevent falls. You can start easy with 40 minutes per week and increase each fortnight until you reach 120 min

National physical activity guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week. Many people do not reach this target. StandingTall is a great way to safely increase your overall activity levels.
