Why Exercise Is Important As We Age

Susan’s latest monthly column for Gannett Newspapers addresses the importance of exercising, particularly as we age.  The column, entitled “Spring into action with easy exercise program,” describes various ways older adults can incorporate exercise into the daily routine.

The article addresses four categories of physical activity: endurance, strength, balance and flexibility, and why each are important to maintaining health and independence  Remember – research shows that physical activity is not only good for the body, but good for the mind.
