One of the first things that a senior should do if they want to live a healthy life is exercise. They don’t have to join a gym, they can easily start a workout routine that they can do from home, but they must engage in some form of exercise if they want to live a healthy life.

Aerobic exercise will help improve cardiovascular health.I was looking for more information and found it here. Heart disease is the number one killer, and having a strong and healthy heart can lower a person’s risk of falling victim to heart disease.
