What I would suggest is to find a good trainer that understands and has trained someone that is similar to you. We all have different things that we have to work around.

I do not know your conditions, but I would think that working out on a thick padded mat would be better in case you do fall. You should be able to do a lot of things like push ups and sit ups since you are already close to the ground.

I think that a healthy diet will be your biggest factor. Limit your calorie intake and do as much exercises that you can and it should be a good start until you find a professional.

Good Luck

I have a condition called A-Taxia which involves balance so, I get dizzy sometimes and lose my balance but mostly just lose my balance when I exercise. I also have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, by the way.

Currently, I'm trying to work out on my tread mill and I seem to lose my balance as always and I'm afraid I'll get hurt.

Plus, sometimes it's hard to get out, but I do it. But, it is hard for me to walk around the block or run or anything like that without being afraid of falling or anything. I would really like to be able to get out and walk or run without any fear of falling. Same with the tread mill.

Any advice, please?
