Senior Fitness Visiting Angels Lawrence Township, NJ

Exercise improves seniors’ overall health

Fact or Fiction? “Exercising is dangerous as I get older, so I should just take it easy.” Answer: FICTION, of course!

Studies have shown that regular exercise can improve health for seniors by:

  • Improving balance and preventing falls
  • Strengthening muscles and improving endurance
  • Relieving depression and improving mood
  • Preventing some types of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes

Talk to your doctor about starting an exercise program that works for you!
