Never too late in life to get active to get healthy

A study looked at over 3000 elder people with an average age of 64. Of these 57% were women.

Comparing participants of the experiment from baseline and 8 years later it was found that those that reported being moderately active were 3x more likely to be healthy. Those that reported vigorous activity were 4x more likely to be healthy.

It was concluded that: "Significant health benefits were even seen among participants who became physically active relatively late in life,"
