Regular physical activity and exercise plays a vital role in men’s health throughout life and particularly as they age. Individual reasons for exercising and personal goals may shift and change throughout a man’s life. What remains constant is the fact that no matter what stage a man is at in life, exercising is always a good idea! For a large proportion of young men, physical activity and exercise is a part of their every day lives – whether it is physical labor at work, on the sporting field, or hitting the gym with mates. But as family and work take priority over a man’s life, exercise can hit the back burner.
The beauty is it is never to late to start turning back the clock. Staying active through your life is the single most powerful way to remain healthy and live to enjoy your family and all the things you have worked hard for.
Consider the following benefits of exercising for older men:
- Reduces the impact of illness and chronic disease
- Lowers cholesterol
- Lowers risk of high blood pressure
- Reduces inflammation
- Lowers the risk of diabetes
- Helps you maintain or lose weight
- Mobility, strength and balance
- Mental health benefits
Keeping active as you age can be daunting, however it does not have to be. Swapping the couch for the gym at least once a week will get you on your way to living a balanced and healthy lifestyle for years to come.
