The World Health Organization predicts that the over-60 population will almost double by the year 2050. Fitness and health are the number one issue with aging men in society and they tend to have more health issues as they age. As they become physically inactive and overweight, the effects of that can be damaging. This is not to say that women cannot develop the same health issues as men, but it does mean that men should be more proactive about their own health and fitness. That is, men should take responsibility for their own health and fitness and make an effort to maintain good health and fitness throughout their lives.
