It’s never too late to start moving or exercising! The oldest client I’ve trained was 95 years young. Your heart is a muscle and, as with any muscle, exercise is what strengthens it. Aerobic exercise like brisk walking, water walking briskly, jogging, swimming, cycling, Zumba, and other activities that use large muscle groups repetitively to get your heart pumping faster is the most beneficial type of exercise for your heart and blood vessels. Ideally, you should be moving 30-minutes or more a day at least five days a week. This can be broken down into 10-15 minute segments multiple times per day or done all at one time. Your exercise should be moderate in intensity which means you should be breathing harder, your heart should be beating faster and it should feel somewhat difficult. If it feels easy and you can sing while you are exercising, you are not working hard enough for your heart to get stronger. So find an activity you enjoy and can stick with for the long run and GET MOVING!!!
We don’t stop moving because we get old; we grow old because we stop moving. Don’t stop moving!
