Benefits of regular EXERCISING


There is no way getting around it - exercising is one of the key ingredients of healthy aging and contributes to both physical and mental health. Aerobic and strength training impacts every cell of one's body, thus helping to reduce aging.


Aerobic Activity - perform moderate-intensity aerobic activity for a minimum of 30 minutes, 5 days a week, or vigorous-intensity aerobic activity for 20 minutes- 3 days per week. Combinations of moderate and vigorous activity may be performed to meet these suggested guidelines.

Resistance Exercise - engage in a muscle strengthening activity as least twice a week on non-consecutive days. This exercise should involve the major muscle groups and resistance weight that allows 10-15 repetitions for each exercise with a moderate to high effort.

Flexibility - engage in exercises that increase flexibility on at least two days a week for 10 minutes.

Balance - Older adults who face a substantial risk from falls should perform exercises that maintain or improve balance, such as yoga or tai chi. Older adults with chronic conditions or low fitness levels should work with their healthcare provider to develop an exercise plan
