balance training
Explanation:
check google for "balance training" AND "fitness" - 8810 hits

e.g.
Everyone can benefit from a balance training program. Professional athletes, fitness novices and the elderly can improve their coordination, motor skills and body control with a regular program of balance training. This type of functional stability training in a fitness program helps prevent unnecessary injuries during a workout and in day-to-day activities. As the population ages and because falls account for more than half of the accident-related deaths in the elderly, balance training should be an integral part of every fitness program.

body balance


Explanation:
At the moment gym classes called 'Body Balance' are all the rage, and it sounds like this might be a description of a group training class (also suitable for personal training). These classes use the balance training method found above, so if you're after a description of the content, 'balance training' is it. If its the title of a gym class you might find 'Body Balance' is the go! good luck.
