Seniors Save Money Going To The Gym

Seniors Save Money Going To The Gym

In a study reported last January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that seniors who went to the gym two or more times a week over two years averaged health care cost savings of over $1,200 more than those who went less than once a week.

Since regular exercise helps control weight, strengthens bones and joints, lowers pain and anxiety, reduces cardiovascular disease and increases brain health, it’s not surprising that all these added together for a bottom-line dollar impact in people’s health care costs.

With all the changes about to happen in health care, regardless of who is elected, why don’t you start your own savings program by exercising two or more times a week?
