Keeping Fit & Mobile in Later LIfe
As we clock up the mileage and the years tick by our bodies often feel the strains and toils which may present as aches, pains, stiffness or feeling like you are slowing down. Some people feel like they are getting weak and some experience falls due to loss of balance due to a dodgy joint that they have been minding for years. It is all to common to hear of people who go downhill rapidly due to a joint replacement, where they firstly loose fitness, then confidence and in time their mobility and independence is significantly affected.
The good news is that all of this can be remedied by engaging in regular exercise and being physically active. The vast majority of people these days are aware of the multiple benefits of exercise but despite this do not prioritise it. The best way to go about it is by having a balance between cardiovascular exercises and resistance or weight training. This ensures that both your fitness and strength levels stay at their optimum so you can continue doing the things you like doing for much longer.
