Is your fitness routine sporadic? If so you are a lot like me. I’ve been starting and stopping it seems all my life. So my wife and I started back at the gym in hopes of one more time getting buff (and getting rid of some of these unsightly bulges). The fact of the matter is that we are getting older and our bodies are wearing out. Research shows that individuals who regularly exercise are healthier and live longer. What got me on this particular article is that exercise actually retards aging. Wow that’s what I want – to slow down the aging process. Bringing up the rear of the baby boomers I figure its time for me to get more serious about getting in shape. How about you?
