1. Improved mobility
As we age, our mobility can take a hit. But it doesn't have to be that way. A study by Voss et al. (2010) found that aerobic exercise can significantly improve mobility in older adults.
2. Increased strength
Strength isn't just for the young. Regular exercise can help older adults build and maintain strength, according to a study by Liu et al. (2016).
3. Enhanced flexibility
Flexibility isn't just about touching your toes. It's about maintaining a range of motion in your joints. Regular exercise can help improve flexibility in older adults, as shown in a study by Eggenberger et al. (2016).
4. Improved balance
Balance can deteriorate with age, increasing the risk of falls. But exercise can help. A study by Tait et al. (2017) found that exercise can significantly improve balance in older adults.
5. Improved mood
Exercise isn't just good for the body; it's good for the mind too. Regular exercise can improve mood in older adults, according to a study by Gomes-Osman et al. (2018).

Struggling with sleep? Exercise could be the answer. A study by Sadeghi Bahmani et al. (2019) found that regular exercise can significantly improve both objective and subjective sleep in older adults.

Want to keep your mind sharp as you age? Exercise can help. A study by Gomes-Osman et al. (2018) found that exercising for at least 52 hours is associated with improved cognitive performance in older adults.
