I stumbled across this article and had to find out more. What Happened to the Fitness Generation? Pretty compelling headline, don’t you think? There are countless articles about how we boomers will change the face of aging and retirement in part because we will be the fittest older demographic in history. In fact, it is suggested that our healthy lifestyles will create huge pressure on health care systems, especially the single-payor type (government health care).
So it is true that we are not really the fitness generation? The statistics suggest this may be the case. So if you are one of those who has slipped into, shall we say, a slower pace, maybe it’s time to think a bit about your situation and what lies in store for us all down the road. The gist of the article is that exercise needs to be fun.
So go out and find something that is fun to do (and doesn’t hurt too much!) and just do what you can. It is likely true that doing something is better than doing nothing.
