Seniors Should Keep Moving

Updated: Dec 9, 2022


New Research posted in the journal Obesity found that exercise can help improve the daily activities of obese older adults. As people age, especially if they are obese, sometimes they lose the ability to perform day to day tasks or even walk short distances, which can negatively affect their independence. The study focused on balance, flexibility, walking and strength and found that obese seniors improved their mobility and decreased their risk for a mobility disorder when engaged in the exercise program compared to those that just received education. The take home message is that exercise is important at any age and at any weight. Exercise is vital to remain functional and independent, and its benefits must be taken seriously!
