 I will like us to know that exercises for people who are aged or people who are over 50yrs seems to be very important because it helps prevent diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure, obesity, being overweight and other heart related issues.

The truth about exercises for old people who are 50yrs and above is that it act as preventive measures for disease cure. Exercises help cure pains such as osteoarthritis which seems to be common among age men and women.

All these helps to prevent diseases in these old people and that is why exercises is very important for these old people.

The best fitness exercises for people who are over 50yrs and above includes;
 
1.  Gentle Running: I refereed to this as gentle running due to the fact that its done gently.  Our elderly people who are around 50yrs and above can’t be doing some cardio exercises but running at their won pace is also a form of exercises. This also performs its basic function of circulating blood around the body and increasing body metabolism.
 
2.  Gentle walking: Walking in a gentle or slow manner can’t be referred to as a cardio exercises but it’s just a fitness exercises that also make people older people fit and free of exercises. 

When these elders walk few miles or meters few days in a week, it is enough to make them fit and agile because blood flow through their body, blood cells and the heart is made healthy. This also improves digestion and cell metabolism. 

3.  Speed walking: Speed walking isn’t for young people but older people after 50 or around age 50 can also do it. I have heard some celebrities who are also old say that the only secret for their fresh skin, fitness and healthiness is due to exercises like speed walking. 

When these elders do speed walking for few miles or meters, it is enough to make them fit and strong because blood flow through their body, blood cells and the heart is made healthy. This also improves digestion and cell metabolism.
