Then we'll take it from there and build until people are comfortable. I might first just make a target on the floor and say, stand right in the center of that and do a single-leg balance. We might progress to a pad that's an inch off the ground, then, in three or four workouts, be bouncing on the BOSU ball [a piece of equipment that looks like a beach ball cut in half]. That's like play, and that's the goal. We hear the first part of 'working out' and it becomes a turnoff for older folks. They've worked hard all their lives!"
