Aging comes with its fair share of changes. But there are things you can do to maintain your health, independence and quality of life.
Exercise is important. It can help you:

Think exercise isn’t for you?
We bet you can find something you enjoy! There are lots of ways to work in physical activity. Walking, dancing, yoga, water aerobics, bicycling, riding a stationary bike and even chair exercises can help you strengthen and tone your muscles.
How much exercise is enough? Ask away.
Here are some general guidelines you can follow. But you should ask your doctor about the type and amount of physical activity that’s right for you. Your doctor can also recommend ways to get started exercising or get more out of the workouts you’re doing.
