You know that exercise is the key to physical fitness, especially later in life. But, did you also know that fitness is, in turn, the key to wellness, or our overall wellbeing, as we age?

That’s right. Having strength, stamina and agility well after 50 is integral to maintaining our quality of life. This is true at any age. Not only does it improve our physical health, fitness also is the bedrock of maintaining the other components of wellness, including our emotional and spiritual lives.

We’ve always been told if we have our health, we have everything. If we’re fit, we can maintain our independence and zest for living at any stage of life.

How much is enough? Surprisingly, not much! Exercising 150 min a week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes a week of vigorous exercise has shown to have great benefit in improving quality of life.

Key to Wellness Examples of Moderate activities as a Key to Wellness:

  • Walking
  • Riding bike
  • Water aerobics

  • Hiking up hill
  • Circuit training with weights
  • Aerobics
