Aging is a universal phenomenon that affects everyone no matter ethnic background, social class, or gender.  We will all experience at some point later in life a change in our physical body, cognitive abilities, and energy levels due to advancing age.

However, we can make a choice in how accelerated the aging process takes place or to undergo significantly less pronounced changes over time.

Most mainstream doctors’ recommendations in a 5-minute consultation to treat various health conditions is to prescribe drug medications and say, “it’s just part of the aging process.  This is the best we can do.”

In my opinion, this is one of the biggest fears a person can have in their life:

a loss of independence and self-reliance (think assisted living center).

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Exercise can make the difference in living well and extending life.

Research continues to demonstrate that participation in a regular exercise program can improve a person’s functional capacity in the areas of muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, power, balance, and coordination.  This means you will be able to adopt a more active lifestyle and do the things you love in life better, such as:

  • Travel
  • Play with grandchildren
  • Go out with friends
  • Golf, swim, hike, bike, play tennis, etc.
  • Dance
  • Volunteer
  • Gardening
  • Walk the dog
  • Cook
  • Go anywhere you want independently
  • And much more . . .

Furthermore, the medical literature supports the following health benefits of exercise participation for mature adults:

  • Lowers risk of bone loss, osteoporosis, and arthritis
  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Lowers risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases
  • Lowers risk of falls and accidents
  • Improves muscle preservation
  • Improves sleep
  • Improves mood and disposition
  • Improves sexual functioning
  • And much more . . .

And finally, in my opinion, participation in an ongoing exercise program with like-minded people enhances socialization.  This is a big factor because we all need human connection and friendships.  This will soon be a part of your life you look forward to.
