- Flexibility (how bendable you are, can you touch your toes etc. See last week's message.)
- Mobility (how easily you can move).
According to Collins English Dictionary Agility means: the ability to move quickly and be light on your feet.
Since I started to practice Nia and improve my agility, I feel more alert and awake in my day-to-day life. Sometimes I play a song on the iPod and move around with agility, it really perks me up!
So how do you improve your agility?
By practicing start/stop. How fast you can start and stop. For example, a little jump to the left and then quickly stop and change to a little jump to the right. Repeat this a few times.
Also, how agile are you in your hand and eye movements? The ability to control the movement of the body in co-operation with the body's sensory functions e.g. catching a ball is a good test of hand to eye co-ordination.
