Exercise benefits everyone – young or old, thin or heavy, whatever your state of health.
It is healthier to be slightly overweight but in good physical condition, than to be underweight and sedentary. However, if you are well overweight and need to shed some pounds exercise is essential to the task.
Virtually any health condition can be improved with exercise. Even when surgery is required physicians recommend strength training to improve recovery. The standard treatment for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, and most any condition you can name includes exercise.
As you age the best indicator of how long you will live is your performance on the treadmill. And how the quality of your life may affect you is largely determined by strength training.
To look and feel your best, exercise is the ticket.
