Exercise is like magic

Posted on: July 6th, 2012 by Gustavo Castillo

The physical decline associated with aging is not simply the result of getting older: it’s partly a product of becoming less active as we age.  Studies show that older people who engage in regular exercise can turn back the clock by as much as 20 years – in terms of heart and respiratory function, blood pressure, blood sugar, strength, bone density, flexibility, muscle mass, and mood – compared to those who get little or no exercise .

The message is clear: To get more from your years, get moving.
