Aging and Exercise LinkedOur thinking on the impact of exercise on aging has begun to change. It looks like exercise may do more for your body than simply keep it fit and keep the weight off. In fact, most of the places (called blue zones) where people live longer and healthier lives than average have some component of exercise in their daily lives. Studies have shown that the telomere length (a measure of a cell's age) is longer in twins who exercise compared to twins who do not. Further, we know that exercise is linked to longer life expectancies. In other words, exercise may have its own anti aging effect. In addition to keeping everybody fit, exercise can slow the aging process in your body.
