While retirement is a time for fun and relaxation, it’s also a time to rediscover the physical strength a career in the office may have taken out of you. As we age, staying active is every bit as important to good health as nutrition. Follow our tips to turn fitness from a chore, into an exciting way to grow into your retirement.

Having trouble convincing your friends to join you? Walking groups are easy to find online, or through a local community center.
