The Facts 

"It is never too late to get fit."

  • Only one in ten individuals over the age of 50 exercises enough to gain any cardiovascular benefit
  • Half of the physical decline associated with old age may be due to a lack of physical activity
  • People over the age of 65 require adequate fitness levels to help them recover from illness and reduce the risk of
  • disease

The human body responds to exercise, no matter what its age, and the health benefits are multiple. If you are over 50 years,

obese, suffer from a chronic illness or have been sedentary for some time, it is a good idea to see your doctor before

embarking on any new exercise routine.
