Senior citizens that are fit lead happier and more independent years after retirement. They are able to do all the things they had dreamed of doing. Being active in your adult years and staying active in your senior years will enable you the greatest opportunity to continue living the way that you want.
If you have a disability or are recovering from an injury, and have been cleared for activity by your primary care provider or physical therapist, you can look into speaking with a certified Senior Fitness Personal Trainer.

Trainers with senior fitness backgrounds also have a lot more training with senior health and wellness needs.
