The Doctors

The daring new sport of slacklining is used for both sporting and meditative purposes. A flat, nylon band is attached between two anchor points, similar to a tightrope, and slackliners will perform incredible stunts, while maintaining balance on the narrow, elevated surface.

Slacklining has been shown to strengthen core muscles and improve balance, as well as promote good posture, flexibility and focus. Professional slackliner Frankie Nejara of Gibbon Slacklines and world slacklining champion Mike Payton show The Doctors some slacklining tricks, and pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears attempts some basic balancing moves!
