Exercise is important in your life no matter who you are

The pursuit of fitness beyond simple exercise is sending octogenarians to the hockey rink and grandparents to the tennis court. Many early Baby Boomers are saying no to shuffleboard and bingo and yes to marathons and international competition.

"Getting older doesn't mean the juices stop flowing," said Nancy Kinney, 80, of Phoenix, a world age group record-holder in swimming.

The benefit of exercise to slow the aging process is only part of the equation. More competitive events are available to the 50-plus crowd. Additionally, seniors live in an age in which "life is on steroids compared to what it used to be like," said Bettina Lehnert, a Scottsdale psychologist.

"We have come to expect almost anything to be possible in this instantaneous digital age," she said. "People live longer, look younger. It stands to reason that in this environment seniors would push themselves to perform to the highest of their ability."
