Lorna Kleidman comments on an article published for The Vancouver Sun reporting that middle aged people who exercise can expect a better quality of life in their later years.

On September 20th, Lorna Kleidman, fitness expert specializing in kettlebells, responds to an article published for The Vancouver Sun affirming that exercise can provide “lifelong benefits.”

According to the article, a study published for the Archives of Internal Medicine and conducted by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, suggests a correlation between “subjects' fitness in middle age and their health in later years.” The article states that in 1984 researchers studied 18,000 men and women with varying physical fitness, studying their blood pressure, BMI, etc. The Vancouver Sun reports, “More than a quarter-century later, in 2010, the researchers examined the Medicare claims of the participants, looking specifically for treatment for eight chronic diseases that adversely affect people's quality of life: congestive heart failure, ischemic heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer's disease, and colon and lung cancer.”

Kettlebell trainer Lorna Kleidman attests to the study. Lorna trains men and women of varying ages in her exercise program KettleX, where she witnesses the health benefits that exercise provides. According to Kleidman, “I typically see dramatic transformations in a person’s health and fitness after just a few weeks with my program. Most people see a reduction of body fat, an increase in their strength and improved confidence.” The article affirms that it is never too late to begin a “program of aerobic exercise or weight training.”

“Upon examination of the Medicare claims, the researchers discovered higher fitness levels in both men and women at age 49 were associated with lower risk of developing chronic conditions in their 70s and 80s,” the article reports. The Vancouver Sun concludes by stating that exercise can improve a person’s future quality of life.

Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy to use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
