Mickey Mantle once said ”If I knew I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself.” As we age, many people will not maintain their physical fitness to their best abilities. With the natural deterioration of joints, bones, and muscles it will be increasingly difficult to stay fit and work out. Fear of injury and pain prompts most of the elderly community to steer clear of exercising all-together.
With our experience in home care in Santa Clarita, we’ve found that for many seniors, there is a greater risk involved in being sedentary than remaining physically active. During the course of aging, cells will gradually die off, making the body frailer and prone to injury. One of the best ways to fight this process is by performing low-impact exercises. These light calisthenics can encourage the body to generate new cells while increasing bone density and muscle mass. The following list of low-impact exercises will help seniors to hit a home run in health and fitness.
If you or your aging loved one are interested in starting any of the above exercises, be sure to consult with your doctor or primary care physician first. They will be able to evaluate your current abilities, provide you with safe fitness plans, and in some cases may recommend that exercises are done in the company of a family member or professional Santa Clarita caregiver to ensure safety.
