Everyone benefits from exercise and physical activity. Whether you’re young or old, fit or out-of-shape, healthy or recovering from injury, physical activity can ease symptoms of many chronic conditions and prevent illness. Exercise has the potential to greatly improve everyone's quality of life. Contrary to popular belief, weakness and poor balance are actually linked to inactivity rather than age. Thus, there is no reason that older adults and seniors shouldn't remain active and increase their activity levels even as they age. To help seniors engage in an active lifestyle, an age-appropriate exercise program like “Sweating to the Oldies” is especially designed to address their needs.
Seniors have different needs and physical limitations than younger exercisers but they have the most to gain from the benefits gleaned from exercise. Sweating to the Oldies in Salem, MA is a group exercise class strategically developed to suit the specific needs and limitations of older adults and seniors. This fitness program is low intensity and low impact to protect joints, bones, soft tissue, and muscles. For this reason, the risks of pain, fatigue, and injury during and after the sessions are dramatically minimized.
Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Though many see the results of exercise as skin deep, the health benefits are far more important than improving physical appearance. Having a physical fitness program for elderly people and incorporating exercises into their lifestyle not only makes them look better, but it will help them feel sharper, more energetic, and able to experience a greater sense of well-being.
