  • Promoting Active Lifestyles among Older Adults - Successful aging is largely determined by individual lifestyle choices and not by genetic inheritance. Few factors contribute as much to successful aging as having a physically active lifestyle. Regular physical activity is important for the primary and secondary prevention of many chronic diseases (e.g., coronary heart disease, non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, obesity), disabling conditions (e.g., osteoporosis, arthritis), and chronic disease risk factors (e.g., high blood pressure, high cholesterol).
