Older age osteoporosis is a major problem and leads to a higher risk of fractures, with associated major disability and even worse..

Weight-bearing exercise is important to build stronger bones when we are growing, and to maintain bone strength as we age. A combination of regular activity, cardiovascular exercise and whole body resistance training will cover your general fitness needs including your bone health.
