Developing a healthy lifestyle is important for healthy aging. The choices we make today will affect our health, capacity to function, and ability to enjoy our lives as we age. Biological aging takes place regardless of what we do or don’t do, but we can minimize the biological effects of aging with regular exercise.
Regular exercise can “increase active life expectancy by limiting the development and progression of chronic disease and disabling conditions” .
An ideal exercise program should include aerobic exercise, muscle-strengthening exercise, and flexibility exercise.
Being physically active during our younger years translates into a higher likelihood of being both physically and mentally healthy as we age.
I welcome your questions and also welcome the opportunity to assist you with your exercise program.
