Aging is a reality. While everyone ages somewhat differently, the key issue that individuals must consider is not whether they can extend the length of their life, but how they can improve the quality of their life. In other words, how are they going to live until they die? In Exercise and Aging, one of the most renowned exercise physiologists in the field provides his insights, thoughts, and suggestions for health/fitness professionals who work with older people.

Among the topics covered:
  • Aging and life expectancy trends in the United States
  • Physiological parameters that decrease with age
  • Overview of a long-term UNLV epidemiological study of the effect of daily activity on coronary risk factors and the aging process
  • The health benefits of physical activity for older adults
  • Factors that should be considered when working with older adults
Produced in cooperation with the American College of Sports Medicine.
