“We don’t stop exercising because we grow old, we grow old because we stop exercising.”
We all know how important it is to stay active as we grow older, and we encourage our assisted living residents in Amarillo to be as active as they can be for as long as they can. Below talks about products that were created to help these individuals stay active more easily.
It’s no secret that exercise is often called the fountain of youth. In fact, few factors contribute as much to successful aging as having a physically active lifestyle. Learn more from the health experts at ChairMaster about an exercise solution that helps seniors stay fit as they age.
While 30 minutes may seem like a lot to seniors, studies show you don’t have to do 30 minutes of exercise at once. Recently, a study of over 6,000 participants showed that those who did short bursts of exercise measured as well on health indicators like that of blood pressure, cholesterol and waist circumference as those who worked out in full 30 minute segments.
Besides the time exercise takes, a lot of seniors also struggle with the fact that most exercise products – and even fitness classes – are designed for younger individuals. Elliptical machines and motorized treadmills are especially intimidating with the risk of falls and injury. However, a new fitness product, the ChairMaster®, is a great exercise solution for seniors.
