San Antonio Senior Fitness:
Regular exercise and physical activity are important to the physical and mental health of almost everyone, including senior adults. Being active in a senior fitness program can help you continue to do the things you enjoy and stay independent as you age. Regular physical activity over long periods of time can produce long-term health benefits. That’s why health experts say that senior adults should be active every day to maintain their health.
“Senior fitness programs maximize residual function and in some instances, biological age is reduced by as much as 20 years. Life expectancy is increased, partial and total disabilities are delayed, and there are major gains in quality adjusted life expectancy. Exercise is thus a very important component of healthy living for senior citizens.” – Dr. Roy J. Shephard, M.D.
In addition, a senior fitness program can reduce the risk of developing some diseases and disabilities that develop as we grow older. In some cases, senior fitness programs are an effective treatment for many chronic conditions. For example, studies show that individuals with arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes benefit from exercise. Senior fitness programs also help those with high blood pressure, balance problems, or difficulty walking.
As always, consult your doctor before beginning any senior fitness program.
