Exercise and Physical Activity: Getting Fit For Life

exercise team“After walking on a treadmill at the local community centre, I knew I'd be happier outside. So, I got a step counter and started walking in my neighbourhood. Since then, I've seen yellow tulips bloom in spring and red and amber leaves drop in autumn. I always come home with more energy and happy to go on with the rest of the day.” Marian (age 77)

“Both my wife and I have heart problems. About 2 years ago, we joined our local health club, where we do both endurance and strength training exercises. On the off days, we walk near our house. It’s been life-saving for us.” Bob (age 78)

These older adults are living proof that exercise and physical activity are good for you, no matter how old you are. In fact, staying active can help you:

  • Keep and improve your strength so you can stay independent.

  • Have more energy to do the things you want to do.

  • Improve your balance.

  • Prevent or delay some diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

  • Perk up your mood and help reduce depression.

You don’t need to buy special clothes or belong to a gym to become more active. Physical activity can and should be part of your everyday life. Find things you like to do. Go for brisk walks. Ride a bike. Dance. Work around the house. Garden. Climb stairs. Swim. Rake leaves. Try different kinds of activities that keep you moving. Look for new ways to build physical activity into your daily routine.
