Exercise

Robert Marchand, a 105 year old man from France, has shown the world that you can break records at any age!  Marchand has set a new one hour cycling record for his age by pedaling 22.547 km in the national velodrome situated in the west of Paris. By comparison, the one-hour world record is 54.526 km, set by British Tour de France winner and multiple Olympic gold medalist Bradley Wiggins.

Boy! What a fete!

Robert Marchand is really inspirational to all and the same time puts most of us to shame. He has shown that you can achieve anything, in any age, as long as you work at it consistently.

Should the elderly exercise?

by Angie on

Have you ever noticed that the older you are, the more aches and pains you get? Things that used to be easy to do aren’t so now? More so for your elderly folks, for some even walking to the front porch is a task on its own. Do they really need exercise in their daily routine?

The answer is a resounding YES! Just because you have reached the golden age, that does not mean that exercise takes a back seat in your life. All the more why it should be priority #1 in your daily life. After all, age is ONLY a number, you are never too old to start exercising. The only hurdle is your mind. We are so conditioned to think that when you reach the 70s and 80s, all you should be doing is spending the days sitting in a rocking chair and reading the papers. Let me tell you that this is a MYTH! It is time for a paradigm shift.
