Exercising at home is a fantastic way for older adults to remain healthy and strong. Physical activity is one of the main contributors to living a longer and healthier life, with a multitude of benefits associated with regular exercise. Even if you have never been a big fan of exercise, it’s never too late to start.
Competing in a race is fantastic: the thrill of being amongst a big group of other runners, the fun of running somewhere you normally wouldn’t be able to, the advantage of being timed in a race environment, and the high of crossing that finish line. But there are a few steps before you can get there.
At the moment, exercise is just as vital as ever, especially for older people. Early evidence suggests that keeping fit and healthy may improve your resilience against the COVID-19 virus by boosting your overall immune system. But maintaining the same level of health and fitness becomes difficult when your exercise routine has been disrupted, and those who help facilitate it are no longer allowed to visit your home.
