 Fitness Programs for Older Adults: Fitness for Longevity: The Relationship Between Exercise and Lifespan 

Many times, I have often heard that great athletes, and those who lived long lives, are those who had chosen the right parents. Granted, genetics do play a role in the course of our lives, but to the contrary, I believe we can manipulate the course of our lives by altering our genetics and can control our destinies. The ingredients for genetic self-intervention are proper exercise and nutrition. These practices construct and remodel the tissues of the body making it possible for us to literally create ourselves. If we eat poorly, and never develop any strength or stamina from exercise, common logic would suggest that we’ll, most likely, be unhappy, weak, stricken with maladies, and pass away years before our true time is up. On the other hand, as previously stated; my golden theory, if we eat great foods, develop adequate strength to easily endure our days, train sensibly, and avoid drugs, we’ll live a productive and extended life.

It’s fitness for longevity. A science made simple once you tie the laces of your gym shoes, grab that tennis racquet, or push up on that barbell. Whatever activities you select, pursue them with confidence that health and longevity are the rewards you’ll obtain for your efforts. Take my advise and let’s spend a little more time together!
