I am not the most coordinated individual. As part of a warm-up exercise prior to running, our training group balances on each foot for a certain amount of time, normally under one minute, in order to help strengthen the stabilizing muscles in the foot, ankle, and hip. We are encouraged to focus our attention on an object as we balance, so as to keep our minds occupied. There are times when I become distracted and lose my balance.
I tend to look at FMCA the same way. Our association consists of family members and commercial members. Although we may be able to stand on one leg for a brief period of time, we can last much longer and feel much stronger by standing on both legs.
