At a time in history when life expectancy is increasing, there are concerns about the quality of life when we are living longer. Independent functioning for seniors is becoming increasingly important. Exercise for seniors is perhaps the next big revolution for the exercise business. As baby bombers wish to stay “with it”, exercise, particularly, resistant training may be the ticket. There are concerns of health care cost increasing as years are added to ones life. As science helps to increase one’s life years, science should help aid in improving the quality of life for those years.
