It’s never too late to get fit and strong.
Ageing is the gradual loss and ability to take part in activities which once may of seemed effortless.
As we age there are physiological and anatomical considerations to be given to the nervous system, musculoskeletal system and cardiorespiratory system.
The benefits to remaining active as a adult:-
- Increase in brain volume resulting in a sparing of age-related decline to brain function.
- Muscle mass, strength and power are maintained to a greater extent than those sedentary.
- Improvements to the overall health and functional ability of skeletal muscles.
- Significant positive effects on bone health and retention of bone mass.
- Prevention of osteoarthritis.
- Significant reduction to the risk of heart disease and other chronic illnesses.
Therefore, by remaining active in later life and committing to a healthy lifestyle, this can counteract various chronic health conditions and reduce the risk of common afflictions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, arthritis and emphysema.
