Your exercise for the elderly article should include Pilates! There are a few women in my pilates studio who are over 65 and look amazing! They have very strong bodies from all the resistance training on the reformer machines. All the healthy people I know over the age of 70 exercise regularly in one form or another. A friend of mine mentioned recently that her 87 year old father goes to the gym and lifts weights every other day. He also takes music lessons. Oh, in addition to eating very healthfully. Going strong mentally and physically... it's possible after 80!
