Physical activity provides a variety of benefits that are useful through all stages of life. Senior citizens can maintain healthy lifestyles and improve their safety by incorporating regular exercise into their routines. Regular workouts can help seniors become more flexible and gain better balance, reducing their risk of slip and fall injuries.

Examples of useful balance exercises include keen raises, side leg lifts, and single leg tilts. Make sure you have the right shoes and apparel and always perform exercises near a wall for support in case you need it.
