Staying Active As You Age

April 24, 2015

It is common for most people to be active in their twenties and early thirties only to be

 

overcome by the stresses of life in their later years and become sedentary. The benefits of 

 

working out in your later years only increase as time goes by. Exercise has the ability to fend off 

 

disease, reduce stress, keep hormone levels steady, and increase energy levels as you age. 

 

There are also several studies showing that exercise improves cognitive function and may keep 

 

Alzheimer’s and dementia from occurring later in life.

 

Another core problem in today’s society that can be reversed through exercise is Type 2

 

Diabetes. Due to the high sugar content of the American diet there are tons of people who 

 

develop Type 2 Diabetes later in life. This disease is preventable and in some cases may be 

 

reversed through diet and exercise. Losing weight, exercising, and making dietary changes will 

 

increase the ability to control your blood sugar and in some instances may totally reverse Type 

 

2 Diabetes. Even if you do not reverse the disease you can decrease medication needed and 

 

greatly improve your condition through diet and exercise.

 

 

A huge benefit to staying active as you age is the ability of exercise to increase and regulate 

 

hormone levels.  A major cause of aging is the decline in hormones as time goes by. It has been 

 

shown that regular resistance training will increase hormone levels thereby delaying the aging 

 

process. Conclusion: Do you want to feel like you did in your twenties? Do you want to ward 

 

off dementia? Do you want to prevent or maybe reverse Type 2 Diabetes? If yes, start a 

 

regular exercise routine including weight and resistance training and change your dietary 

 

habits.

I frequently tell my clients to think of their body as a machine when it comes to what they put into it. The point behind this is that instead of putting sugar, processed food, empty carbohydrates, un-healthy fat, etc. into their bodies, they should be fueling themselves with whole foods and options that will help them perform...
