Aerobic capacity declines as we age as proven by The Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging. It begins to be noticeable as we enter our 40-plus years and declines more rapidly in our 60s and 70s.
Without exercise, the aerobic capacity decline is accelerated.
The good news is that individuals who start with higher aerobic capacity AND continue their activity habits throughout life maintain a greater fitness level at all points in the aging spectrum.
At Y.E.S. Fitness, we increase peak aerobic capacity in our 40-plus clients with personalized programs that utilize optimal oxygen consumption. Our clients achieve a greater fitness level allowing them to improve endurance, increase stamina and enjoy a quality life.
