As many gerontologists and researchers have found, exercise is the closest thing to an anti-aging pill that exists. People, who are physically fit, eat a healthy, balanced diet and take nutritional supplements can measure out to be 10 to 20 years younger biologically than their chronological age--this is what makes an immortal. An immortal doesn't necessarily live forever but can be free from mental and physical disease and degeneration for years longer than an unhealthy individual. Exercise is an extremely important part of achieving this " immortality."
Remember, it doesn't matter if you were once physically active in your younger years; if you’re not currently engaged in a physical activity program on a regular basis, your body is not receiving the innumerable health-related benefits of exercise.
