Seniors & Retirement Home Gym Range Equipment
Why do Senior citizens need to workout?
BETTER BONE DENSITY – PREVENTS OSTEOPOROSIS
When people get older, their bodies cannot produce new bone tissue as quickly as old bone tissue is removed, which causes the weakened, brittle bones of osteoporosis. While exercise can prevent bone density loss. It also builds muscles that can protect and cushion the bones from fractures.
Improving muscle strength and bone density can be helpful in reducing the risk of falls as it can also improve balance. The WHO say regular exercise can reduce the risk of having a hip fracture by 40%.
Helps to maintain mobility Exercise builds muscle and stamina and increases flexibility and balance. It can also reduce some forms of arthritis that make it harder to move around. All of these functions help seniors move around easier while lowering their risk of slip and fall accidents.
HELPS TO REDUCE BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS – WHICH CAN PREVENT DIABETES
The body starts having difficulty regulating blood sugar levels with age, so many seniors develop diabetes. When exercising, the body uses blood glucose as a form of energy instead of allowing it to build up to dangerously high levels that can damage nerve and muscle cells. Exercising can be a helpful way of managing diabetes symptoms or preventing the disease from developing in the senior years.
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE – TO KEEP AT BAY HEART DISEASES, STROKES AND DEMENTIA
Exercise strengthens the heart and opens the blood vessels so the circulatory system can pump blood with less effort. It also encourages weight loss that further reduces blood pressure. High blood pressure is associated with a variety of chronic health conditions that occur with old age, like heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and dementia, which means lowering blood pressure can help seniors prevent these dangerous conditions. Exercise is so effective at lowering blood pressure that some doctors allow seniors to stop taking blood pressure medication after they start exercising.
BOOSTS MOOD – LAST BUT NOT TO THE LEAST
The benefits of exercise are not just physical. When people exercise, their bodies produce more mood-boosting hormones. This effect is so pronounced that a 2004 study found only 14 minutes of exercise 3 times a week was enough to relieve depression. Since seniors are particularly at risk for depression and anxiety disorders, exercise is an important part of maintaining emotional health in old age.
