Fitness For Seniors. Why Should Seniors Exercise? It is important that people of all ages get the proper amount of exercise every day. However, it is especially important that senior men and women also engage in regular physical exercise, in order to maintain proper health and fitness. As we age, the body begins to slow down a little bit, affecting various aspects of our health. In particular, our muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility begin to suffer. In fact, once you pass the age of 30, your total body strength decreases by 4% every decade. This can make it more and more difficult to participate in daily activities, such as household cleaning, meal preparation, and social events. Regular physical exercise can help to combat the loss of this muscle strength, and bring back flexibility and endurance.
