Aging is not an excuse to avoid exercise! The older people become the more important it is to have a regular exercise routine. A good exercise program helps maintain flexibility, strength, energy, endurance, improve overall health and reduce the risk of health related problems that increase with aging.
Past the age of 35, muscle loss of up to 5% occurs with each decade. Regular exercise can greatly improve both health and longevity! The Center for Disease control states that “regular physical activity is one of the most important things older adults can do for their health”. Physical activity can also help reduce the risk of falls, which are a significant health concern in older adults.
There are 4 types of exercise: Flexibility, Strength, Endurance, and Balance. StayFIT outdoor fitness equipment is designed to provide all four types of exercise.
