Fitness books love fad diets, creative exercise regiments, and, most of all, catchy headlines and marketing.
But real success in fitness, sports, work, and life all begin with understanding and optimizing the human balance system.
Proper balance is the key to unlocking your full athletic potential and can quickly help you become a faster running, smoother pivoting, better aiming, throwing, and hitting performer, with far lower risk of injury.
But there’s a dark side to the story of balance. Over the past decade, deaths by fall have doubled and falls have cemented themselves as the leading cause of concussions nationwide. Luckily, your body’s balance system works like magic once its hidden potential is unleashed. The path to unleashing your Balance of Power lies within these pages and when you finish it once, the skill will stay with you forever.
For the past five years, Jim Klopman has intensely studied and analyzed the phenomenon of human balance, while developing a game changing training method along with custom made equipment to aid students of all ages in achieving peak physical and mental performance.
Balance your body. Balance your mind. Unleash your best.

When you think about improving your skills for a particular sport or recreational pursuit, you probably think about working on strength, endurance or mechanics. Balance is just something that's inherent in the background. After reading this book, you'll realize that understanding and improving your balance skills can quickly lead to a substantial performance improvement for ANY physical endeavor.
The brilliance of this book is two-fold: It explains the pervasiveness and significance of balance in ways you've probably never even thought about. It then provides a clear and well-illustrated training program to improve your own balance skills. There are numerous real-world examples showing that the resulting performance improvement can be surprisingly dramatic.
As an added bonus, improved balance skills can extend well beyond physical prowess. There is, for example, an illuminating chapter on "Concussion Repair and Prevention."
This book is well written - clear and concise. Not overloaded with technical jargon that can be overwhelming. As a woman in my 50s, I had experienced episodes of balance and vertigo issues. Standing, from a sitting position, and turning simultaneously would often cause me to lose balance and stumble. Playing with the dog in the backyard...running and turning simultaneously would cause me to have to sit down and regroup. I assumed that this was part of aging and that I simply had to live with it. I WAS WRONG. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn many of the basic techniques outlined in the book from Jim and Janet; and I continue to work with Janet to keep balance techniques a part of my weekly workout routine. This has been life changing for me. Not only do I not have any of the balance issues described above; but my confidence and skills mountain biking and skate skiing have improved a great deal. I think the techniques described in this book would benefit anybody,...
As a neuropsychologist this book strikes as resonant frequency and rings of universal truth. Using the body's balance system to heal the injured brain provides a new avenue in concussion treatment. Balnace builds brain power and is truly a concussion preventative and an age defying practice that can benefit us all.
