With Autumn here and Winter imminent, it's time to talk about avoiding falls. Last year, a lot of the groups seen had someone with a broken wrist or ankle, caused by slipping on leaves or (later) on snow. Ask your instructor to show you one an exercise we do that helps people avoid slipping and falling!

The main problem with falling is that people fall forward or backward and attempt to save themselves with putting out their hands, which is how they get broken wrists. The exercise your instructor will show you helps you avoid this mistake and lessens your risk of serious injury.

Stay safe out there!
