Mr Van Roon is a world champion competitor, expert coach and sports scientist. In this video, the first in a new series on Sport Science, he gives you a 45 minute session dedicated to the subject of balance. All sports athletes know the importance of having good balance, and it is something that we all need to master regardless of our current level of ability.

This video is a combination of theory surrounding balance and what that means, alongside several practical ways to help you improve. It includes how to hold your posture correctly, tense your core, align your body so that you minimise wasted energy, and loss of equilibrium.

Mr Van Roon refers to an important book in this video called, Born to Run, which you can check out here.

    Really enjoyed the video on balance – my knee was out of alignment – 44 years and I never knew. Now working to fix it and what a difference it is making. Thank you so much
