Physical activity is an essential component to a healthy lifestyle.  Nowhere is this fact truer, than in the case of individuals over the age of 65.  Older Americans are at higher risk for many health problems that being active can help prevent.  Regular physical activity has been linked to a lower risk of coronary heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and obesity.  Despite these obvious health benefits, current numbers suggest older Americans aren’t getting enough.
