Robert was 55 years old, overweight and couldn’t run about with his grand children. So he decided to do something about.
Now he’s 64 and looks like this. Pretty impressive, eh? Declining fitness with age is not inevitable.
bbc.co.uk carried a sad but predictable story today.
“Most adults don’t exercise enough …” it reported.
“It found about 8% of adults who were physically able to walk had not walked for even five minutes continuously during a four-week period, while 46% had not walked for leisure for more than 30 minutes continuously.
Researchers said 88% had not been swimming, 90% had not used a gym and around 20% of people over the age of 16 had done only minimal amounts of physical activity.”
Obviously some people will never bother to exercise. But probably many would do so if they were more motivated or found the activity more enjoyable.
