11 Fun Ways Older Adults Can Get in Shape


If you're an older adult, few things are more important for your health than exercise. But many seniors find themselves unable to do as many physical activities as they get older. Frustration often ensues, and this can create a vicious circle that leads to even less activity, more health problems, and in some cases, immobility. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Seniors shouldn't feel that they are limited in the activities available to them. In fact, it's quite the contrary -- there are many exercises for seniors, many of which are non-traditional, low-impact exercises that limit stress on the body and risk of injury. Here are a dozen exercises that are sure to keep you engaged at every age.
