Have you played on one of the slack lines yet?

In the form of fitness that we try to build using the CrossFit methodology, we want to improve on ten general physical skills:

– Strength
– Cardiovascular Endurance
– Flexibility
– Stamina
– Power
– Speed
– Accuracy
– Agility
– Balance
– Coordination

Balance is important as it demonstrates the control in the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base. This is obviously important as we grow older, but it improves function and athleticism in sports and activities as well. Slack lining isn’t just for college kids! Try it out and feel the deep burn in the hips!
