Staying fit as you Age

If you were physically active before 50, that’s great.  But if you didn’t exercise regularly, it’s not too late to start. Exercise lowers your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis, Plus, it helps control weight and melts belly fat. Many difficulties of ageing are linked to an inactive lifestyle.  And while your chronological age may be 55, your biological age can be 35 – if you follow a consistent exercise programme.  Before you start, check with your doctor, especially if you have any of the risk factors for heart disease (smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or family history).
