On this edition of Quick Fit Tips I go into the most important benefit of strength training: It can slow down the normal biological aging process.

Until someone invents the flux capacitor for time travel (80s movie reference) there is nothing that we can do to stop the progress of time; however getting older certainly does beat the alternative. Strength training increases the levels of specific hormones which can act as a literal fountain of youth helping to mitigate the aging process.

Would you believe that he is 62 years old?*

If you're in your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s or even your 20s and are not currently exercising, you should think about starting. Not to lose weight or look a certain way, but to take control of the aging process; because regular physical activity combined with a number of other healthy lifestyle choices can help you maintain your youthful energy and appearance well into your later years.

Here is my blog for the American Council on Exercise on the types of exercise to do in each decade of the human life cycle:
