Keeping fit at any age is important, but exercising when you’re over 50 is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle in your later years.
Some of the benefits of regular exercise are:
- Improving memory and cognitive function.
- Improve your mental health
- Reduces your risk of developing illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes, as well as reducing symptoms of existing conditions.
- Helps to maintain muscle mass and maintaining bone density, which in turn helps to prevent falls.
