The rise of the AOP

The over 60s are fitter than ever, leaving their younger counterparts behind when it comes to exercise. Research from the Bupa ‘How are you Britain?' report reveals those 60 plus are three times more likely to exercise every day than those in their 20s. A quarter of over 60s work out at least five times a week, with just 15 % of 20-somethings making a similar effort.

Age defying celebrities including Helen Mirren and Joanna Lumley are spurring on the AOPs (Athletic Older People). As a result of exercise, the over 60s are enjoying a greater quality of life, with a third losing weight and a quarter feeling less stressed. All this physical activity is helping the 60 plus generation to feel younger than their years as well as doing wonders for their health.
