Exercise has long been known to improve our overall health.
New findings from a study more than a decade in the making show that it can significantly increase longevity as well! The study found that those who were relatively healthy in their 40’s and maintained that fitness level for ten years or more reduced their risk of “all-cause-death” by roughly 30%!
Unfortunately, not all of us can claim to have been fit in our 40’s.
But don’t fret! The same study found that those who were able to increase their fitness levels over that same 10 year span lowered their risk of cardiovascular disease by 40%, as well as a 44% lower risk of “all-cause-death”.
So get yourself to the gym! It’s never too late to start.
