Here’s how I know this happens:

First, there are thousands of exercises out there on the internet, in magazines, in blogs, etc. – the problem is that not all exercises are good for everyone. There is no “one size fits all” approach for exercise.

Why Your Activity Level Now Will Impact You Later

Are you among the millions of Americans who have high aspirations for how you’ll spend the extra time during your post-retirement years?

Inactivity can lead to weight gain and joint stiffness. Obesity-related illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and some types of cancer are on the rise in America. Therefore, having the ability to walk 6,000-10,000 steps per day is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
