Did you know that three out of four older adults over the age of 60 years old have hypertension/high blood pressure (American College of Sports Medicine)?
It is fairly common that exercise can help lower blood pressure, it also gives you more energy while protecting against cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Regular exercise also helps the heart become more efficient, so it does not have to work as hard.
Prior to starting any exercise program, please contact your doctor with any concerns or issues you may be having.
We love being healthy and sharing with the community how to be happy, healthy, and strong!
