Benefits of Exercise

Seniors benefit more from exercise than any other age group. When it comes to exercise for seniors, consistency is more important than intensity. You do not have to engage in strenuous exercises to gain health benefits. Moderate exercise, such as chair exercise, water aerobics and walking can lead to substantial health benefits
