Heel-Toe Walk

Equipment
None

Purpose

Heel-toe walking challenges your balance by narrowing your base of support.

Set up

Start by standing normally. Place one foot directly in front of the other, touching the heel of your front foot to the toes of your hind foot.

Movement

Continue to walk forward by stepping one foot directly in front of the other, like you’re walking on a tightrope.

Tips

  • If you have trouble balancing, try the same exercise while using a chair or countertop for support.
