Currently, more than 35 million older adults live in America accounting for approximately 12.5% of the total population. Estimates project that by 2050, more than 70 million people age 65 or older will occupy the United States. That will account for nearly 25% of the population.
Helping older adults improve the quality, and potentially quantity, of life by providing safe and effective exercise programs and advice about healthy lifestyle choices is an important mission.
A commitment to healthy living counteracts a majority of the chronic health conditions leading to morbidity in older adults. Common afflictions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and emphysema, are less common in persons who choose healthy lifestyles.
