What will YOUR last ten years look like if you don’t?



How much is even 30 minutes a day of brisk walking worth to you?


New research published in PLoS Medicine has actually put a number on the benefits of physical exercise, finding that 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week (think: 5 days of 30-minute workouts, like walking, bicycling, or hiking) will earn you an extra 3.4 years. And even just 75 minutes a week (that’s 10 minutes a day!) could extend your life by 1.8 years. Pretty inspiring, huh?


Being obese and inactive, however, is a dangerous combination—possibly shaving 7.2 years off the lifespan.


So the bottom line, as always, is this: exercise is good for you. Really good for you. So whether you’ve been sidelined due to an injury or are just straight-up lazy lately, do what it takes to safely get yourself back in the game—because even 10 minutes a day will stretch your lifespan.

But recently, researchers uncovered a new, bonus benefit: Exercise acts as a powerful vaccine against the aging process itself.

When University of Florida exercise physiologists put healthy people ages 60 to 85 on weight-training programs for six months then tested them for signs of free-radical damage, they were surprised by the results. By the end of the study, exercisers had a drop in free-radical damage, while nonexercisers had a whopping 13 percent rise in free-radical damage.

The message: Need more convincing? Not exercising nearly doubles your risk of a heart attack, says Robert Nied, MD, a sports medicine specialist in California. And it’s not too late to start: “People who go from no exercise to some exercise receive the biggest benefits,” Dr. Nied notes.
