Physical Activity for Longevity
Physical activity is a powerful medicine that can promote health and change the trajectory of aging. However, in the modern world, we have drifted away from incorporating physical activity into our lives, and it can be challenging to get the physical movement we need to maintain health and well-being.
In this noontime webinar, we will discuss how physical activity can slow aging and how different types and amounts of activity can optimize desired health and fitness outcomes. We will explore what scientists have learned about the pathways of disease, the causes of aging, and the ways in which exercise can play a role in slowing the aging process and improving longevity. We will also discuss realistic ways to overcome barriers to movement and strategies to make regular physical activity a joyful part of your daily life.
This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
