“I have arthritis in both knees. Now I am able to go upstairs normally, not one foot at a time.”

– Maureen

 

“I’ve changed my attitude about things I CAN do at 69.”

– Joan

Regular physical activity is the most important contributor to improving overall health and well being. When we become less active, we lose muscle tone, can’t breathe as well, and are more tired in general. Often we are not aware of how much this has affected us until one day we fall and we aren’t strong enough to get up.

Good News

No matter how weak or stiff you have become, you can regain much of your muscle strength and flexibility.You can prevent many chronic diseases by being physically active and eating a healthy diet. If you have a chronic disease or condition (osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease), improving your diet and increasing your physical activity can help you better manage your disease and improve your quality of life.  It’s never too late to start.
