Walking For your Health

Studies have shown that, after following participants from ages 70 - 85 for 2.7 years, walking can reverse many of the limitations associated with aging. The study suggests 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, coupled with two weight strength sessions each week. http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/09/26/495477531/walking-fends-off-disability-and-its-not-too-late-to-start
