Having a regular fitness routine is important in everyone’s life and even more so as we age. Our fitness needs and requirements change over time, but maintaining a good level of fitness promotes a healthy cardiovascular system, functional muscles, and sturdy bones for years to come.
A growing body of research supports exercise in the older age and shows how much it affects our physical, cognitive, and functional abilities, improving our health and wellbeing, and promoting longevity. Staying physically active helps us stay independent for longer which really impacts our mental health. No one wants to feel like they need to depend on others for tasks that were once so natural, and regular exercise can help immensely in this department.
