    There's something bizarre going on with this article. I clicked on "heart rate" on the first page and some very disturbing photos about Australian animals came up. It was very ICKY. - 6/4/2015 12:15:33 AM
  • I'm 78 and my exercises of choice are water aerobics recumbent bike, and walking.
    Sometimes I think I should go to the gym, but I have access to these 3 exercises at home. - 8/25/2014 1:13:49 PM
  • good reminder. Thanks. - 2/22/2014 5:22:46 AM
    I can't tell you how timely this informative article was. I will turn 69 in a few days, am very fit, exercise 6 days a week, but have been feeling tired and achy. This makes me wonder if age is a factor, and whether I should just cut back a bit. Your article makes me realize that, although age is probably a factor, exercise continues to make you stronger and more flexible at any age. So, I'll just keep moving and lifting. Thank You. - 1/27/2014 7:54:16 AM
    Cardio work out is valuable for health especially for reducing weight. Diving is one of them and my preferred as well. i really like to do it and also very pleasant in summer season months..

    I'm on Day 6 and not-at-all energetic but while reading this article I just HAD to get up and walk an extra 600 steps around the house. If you only knew have lazy I am, you would be applauding like mad lol

    will be back time and again to read this article. - 8/24/2013 6:36:28 PM
    It is very important to take good care of your health and keep yourselves fit especially when you have crossed the age of 50. - 6/12/2013 1:30:03 AM
  • Thank you for this information. I hope you'll continue to give us "seniors" more great advice. - 3/3/2013 9:10:31 AM
  • Great and encouraging article for SP seniors who hope to stay active well into our golden years! I especially appreciate the reminder that mixing low intensity and higher intensity in a single longer workout, can work to our advantage. I think that I do that naturally, now, when I can, but I wasn't thinking of it in those terms. This helps motivate me to stay with a workout longer! - 12/16/2011 5:34:28 PM
    Lots of good detailed information - just what I was looking for. - 7/25/2010 1:40:17 PM

  • I am glade to see an article about Senior exercise. We need to encourage our Seniors to be more physically active. I teach an exercise program called Body Recall that emphasizes flexibility and muscular endurance. It has given my students tremendous fitness improvements in a short period of time, and is taught in a safe environment. We do most of our exercises in a chair to remove the balance concern, but strengthen to improve balance. Combining this type of program with cardio will retard the agining process.

    Our health care crisis could be minimized with consistent exercise from our Seniors, as well as all ages. I encourage any age to get up and get moving. We substitute the word "exercise" with the word "movement" because so many Seniors are intimidated with their preconceived idea of what exercise should be. If they could learn more possible and effective exercises to do, hopefully they would be encouraged to be more active and take responsibility for their fitness. He is right on when he says most aging effects are from inactivity, therefore could be slowed down and minimized. Fitness is activity related, not just age related! - 10/6/2009 10:03:50 AM
