To evaluate whether health-related quality-of-life measures can be improved in a senior population by increasing participation in an exercise program. The study involved a nationwide sample of adults aged 65 and older mean age Participation frequency change was measured by average visits per week AVPW to a fitness center from the initial survey year to follow-up years. Longitudinal analyses evaluated whether an increase in visit frequency among active members of SilverSneakers was associated with change in quality-of-life measures, controlling for age and gender. Americans 65 and older are expected to outnumber children by [ 1 ], a shift that has never occurred before in U. These dramatic changes in demographics, driven in part by increases in life expectancy [ 3 ], underscore the important public health goal of maintaining and improving quality of life for aging populations [ 4 , 5 ]. Physical activity has been shown to benefit various aspects of quality of life such as physical functioning, mental health, and social connection cross-sectionally, including in senior populations [ 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 ].
Health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in which disease and infirmity are absent. The meaning of health has evolved over time. In keeping with the biomedical perspective, early definitions of health focused on the theme of the body's ability to function; health was seen as a state of normal function that could be disrupted from time to time by disease. An example of such a definition of health is: "a state characterized by anatomic, physiologic, and psychological integrity; ability to perform personally valued family, work, and community roles; ability to deal with physical , biological , psychological , and social stress ". For a long time, it was set aside as an impractical ideal and most discussions of health returned to the practicality of the biomedical model. Just as there was a shift from viewing disease as a state to thinking of it as a process, the same shift happened in definitions of health. Again, the WHO played a leading role when it fostered the development of the health promotion movement in the s.
Most people believe being healthy and being fit are one and the same. In reality, they can be separate states of physical being. You can be really fit, and not very healthy, and you can be very healthy and not very fit. The best benefits are found with trying to get a balance out of both sides, this requires us to identify the difference between fitness and health. Health has been defined by the World Health Organisation as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness. It is performed for various reasons, to aid growth and improve strength, preventing aging , developing muscles and the cardiovascular system , honing athletic skills, weight loss or maintenance, improving health  and also for enjoyment. Many individuals choose to exercise outdoors where they can congregate in groups, socialize, and enhance well-being.
A substantial body of evidence now demonstrates the burden of ill-health attributable to sedentary living. This is most compelling for coronary heart disease CHD and, combined with the high prevalence of inactivity, 1 provides the rationale for Professor Morris's claim that exercise is 'today's best buy in public health'. The difficulty is with the specifics of what to promote and prescribe. This paper is concerned with future contributions by research to an evidence-based rationale for exercise recommendations—both to the public at large and to individuals. It is clear that physically active people have a lower disease risk than sedentary individuals but the components of activity which determine particular health gains are poorly understood.

Выключите ТРАНСТЕКСТ! - потребовала. Остановка поисков ключа Цифровой крепости высвободила бы достаточно энергии для срабатывания дверных замков. - Успокойся, Сьюзан, - сказал Стратмор, положив руку ей на плечо.
С одного из столов на пол упали подставка для бумаг и стакан с карандашами, но никто даже не пошевельнулся, чтобы их поднять. Лишь едва слышно шуршали лопасти вентиляторов охлаждения мониторов да доносилось ровное дыхание Дэвида в микрофон, почти прижатый к его рту. - Д-дэвид… - Сьюзан не знала, что за спиной у нее собралось тридцать семь человек.
Прости. Я срочно уезжаю. Вернусь завтра. И уже утром мы сможем поехать. В нашем распоряжении будет целых два дня.
Лишь один неверный шаг слишком уж настойчивой фирмы, и ключ будет опубликован, а в результате пострадают все фирмы программного обеспечения. Нуматака затянулся сигарой умами и, выпустив струю дыма, решил подыграть этому любителю шарад. - Итак, вы хотите продать ключ, имеющийся в вашем распоряжении. Интересно. А что по этому поводу думает Энсей Танкадо. - Я ничем не обязан мистеру Танкадо.
Труп сдвинулся на несколько сантиметров. Он потянул сильнее. Труп сдвинулся еще чуть-чуть. Тогда Стратмор напрягся и рванул тело изо всех сил. Внезапно его швырнуло назад, и он больно ударился спиной о кожух генератора.
