Fitness Guidelines and Exercise Physiology: Effects of Aging
It is evident in the way we look, how we move, and the way we feel, that our bodies change as we age. Maintaining high fitness levels through exercise and a balanced diet is one of the primary ways to minimize the effects of aging. In this final activity of our webinar series, participants will review the milestone changes in physiology that impact fitness levels as we age. In reviewing these milestones, participants will learn how to tailor exercise and nutrition regimens, from both a proactive and reactive approach, in order to maintain and optimize overall fitness and health. The risks of inactivity, such as the development of chronic disease, and the benefits of exercise will be clarified. The importance of proper nutrition and supplementation in older adults will be underlined and emphasized. Collectively, participants will leave this webinar with a better understanding of how to be proactive with their fitness and responsive to the effects of aging.
