Physical activity is a major factor in health and people with disabilities, chronic illness and elders are all less likely to get the nutrition and exercise they need, reducing their quality of life and ability to participate in work and social activities.

According to the Administration on Aging. Inactivity often increases with age. Surveys show that by age 75, one-in-three men and one-in-two women are not physically active. Physical activity can help older adults prolong their independence and improve their quality of life. It can also improve mood and relieve depression, too. Staying physically active on a regular, permanent basis can help prevent or delay certain diseases (such as some types of cancer, heart disease, or diabetes) and disabilities as people grow older. Regular exercise can even improve management of some diseases and disabilities in older people who already have them.
