Balance, one of the intricate activities to perform, but aging greatly affects the performance of this complex movement. As we age, the ability to maintain our position in the environment deteriorates. In addition to aging, exercise experiences have effect in ability to maintain balance. This study is conducted to record and test how visual-cue training improves balance between people who regularly perform salah and those who doesn’t. Total of 40 elderly men and women, aged 60 to75, with berg balance scores of 40- 45, normal cognitive function (MMSE >24), who regularly perform salah in all the positions, five-times-per-day, for at least three months, are grouped in one group, while 20 people from the second group do not engage in any specific balance training. After obtaining the informed consent both groups underwent a 4-week, 30-minute-per-day, 4- times-per-week course of visual-cue training, and post- training assessment was taken for both groups. These pre-training and post-training values are statistically analysed and tabulated. Statistics reveals a significant difference between those who do and those who do not perform salah (P<0.05), and individual group analysis additionally demonstrates a significant change in pre- training and post-training values with P<0.001. Based on the findings, performing visual cue training activities has a favourable impact on balance, while practicing salah has minimal effect on balance.
