Taking care of cardiovascular fitness

Focus on joint and spine health

Strength training for stronger bones

Prioritize quality sleep
Getting enough sleep often comes second to the pursuit of fitness. However, for those over 50, sleep becomes an important component of the overall well-being equation. Aim for 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep each night to allow the body to restore, repair and rejuvenate.
