A new survey funded by an insurance company has revealed that people in their 50s are fitter than they were when they were in their mid 20s.
The researcher was funded by Engage Mutual and polled over 1,500 people over the age of 50 years and found that majority of them were more conscious about their health and fitness and exercised more than when they were in their 20s.
AdvertisementOver 70 percent of those polled said that they exercised more compared to when they were younger while over 75 percent said that they ate the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables compared to less than 20 percent who said that they had consumed the recommended amount when they were in their 20s.
