Fitness for seniors

Physical fitness can be a major area of concern for most seniors as they have spent most of their life choosing to ignore it. But it is never too late to start taking better care of yourself and take the required actions to make yourself more fit physically and to prevent yourself from the risk of various diseases that come with age.

Nowadays, people over the age of sixty can be seen in the gyms working out and running on the treadmills. Some of them even take part in marathons and can be seen playing sports like tennis, squash and golf. However, if you feel that your physical condition is not as good as these seniors then you don’t need to worry because you don’t need to make major changes in your life and just by taking a little care of your diet and indulging in any sort of physical activity you can make major changes in your health condition.Sufficient rest is also important as your body needs time to cool down and recover from the daily activities.

For this reason you need to assess your current level of activity as the physical exercise in your life should be more than just a walk from the couch to the bathroom. Walking is a great physical activity and can do wonders for your health. You need to try and take a walk around the block or ride a bicycle regularly. If mobility is an issue for you then you can perform stretches and bodyweight exercises at your home as well.
