Health Benefits of Exercise for Seniors
Studies have shown that a consistent exercise program brings countless benefits to seniors including:
- Increased bone strength
- Better balance and stability
- Stronger immune system
- Better joint health
- Improved motor skills
- Improved respiratory and cardiovascular function
- Reduced risk of developing serious chronic conditions
- Improved quality of life and life expectancy
Regular physical activity can help minimize the symptoms of diseases like Parkinson’s and dementia and seniors who maintain their physical fitness also have a lower risk of falling.
Advantages of Group Fitness Classes
When it comes to a fitness routine, consistency is key. By attending classes with other fitness-minded seniors, you can enjoy socializing while also improving your health. When you know there are others in the class who will miss you if you don’t show up, it’s much easier to make it a priority, even when you’re busy.
Exercising in a group setting will motivate you to push yourself harder than you would if you were working out on your own. Most importantly, group classes are a ton of fun!
