As we age, many of us have a fatal flaw that can lead to a fatal fall — we lose our balance, stability and coordination.

Stephen Jepson says he can change that for everyone. And as a bonus, he believes it can help you build brain cells, develop neural pathways and prevent or delay Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Wait until you see his incredible playground!

And we don’t care what any of you say; this movie deserved its Oscar.

Petit: A bit macabre, perhaps, but Shakespeare’s actual *birth*day is unknown. Today is, however, his confirmed deathday. :(

I adore Mary … ME-tv ♥
