Social activity helps seniors when it comes to exercise
Overcoming the lack of motivation to exercise is a common challenge, affecting people of all ages, including seniors.
Recent studies are a testament to that difficulty.
In a 2021 survey from the global fitness brand Orangetheory® Fitness and Kelton Global, 43 percent of respondents indicated they suffered from a lack of motivation to exercise. Lack of motivation can affect people of all ages, including seniors. However, seniors may be uniquely positioned to overcome their lack of motivation to exercise, particularly if they’re retired and have time on their hands. Seniors who aspire to exercise more frequently can consider these strategies if motivation becomes an issue.
