People of all ages and physical conditions benefit from exercise and physical activity. An inactive lifestyle can cause older people to lose strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. Increasing strength and endurance makes it easier to climb stairs, carry groceries and more. Improving balance helps prevent falls, while being more flexible may speed recovery from any injuries. If you make exercise a regular part of your daily routine, it will have a positive impact on your quality of life as you get older.
