Remember that you are
never too old to exercise; but you're too old not to!
benefits of exercise are universal. Although physical progress
may come slower with age, health rewards are the same for both
young and older adults. However, extra care is necessary when
considering fitness regimens for seniors. A medical clearance
[approval from your doctor] becomes very important as problems
with physical abilities and medical conditions usually show up.
The type of exercise appropriate for older adults would depend on the
individual's health status, fitness level, physical limitations,
motivation, commitment, objectives and interests. Normally, most
seniors can participate in standard fitness programs, with some
modifications though. But careful exercise programming would
ensure a safe and enjoyable exercise experience.
