A simple way to improve your balance is to stand in the corner of the room (no, you haven't been naughty), close your eyes, cross your arms across your chest, then lift one leg.
To complete this challenge you have to do this on both your right leg and your left leg for 60 seconds each without falling over/putting that raised leg down. This HAS to be done concurrently/or very close to it. In other words, if you manage 1 minute on one leg one day, and another 1 minute on another leg another day, that is not good enough to complete the challenge. However, if you manage 1 minute on one leg then it takes three or four goes before you manage it on the other leg, but in the same session, then you can claim completion.
It's not as easy as it sounds & it's harder if you're not wearing any shoes.

“We have to be able to do this for 30 seconds on each leg while on rollerskates as part of our roller derby minimum skills set, but doing it off rollerskates is almost as difficult!”
