Friday fitness with Dr Zoe Williams

A leading doctor is calling on people over the age of 40 to take extra measures to improve their physical health in later life as new research suggests over two thirds (67%) admit to feeling more discomfort as they get older.

Dr Zoe Williams, who has regularly called for continued movement and exercise in later life, is making the appeal as two fifths (40%) of people approaching their 50s claim to want to change their lifestyle to better suit their age.

Despite the majority (59%) of those aged over 51 saying they feel fit and healthy, the average worker spends between 3-4 hours sitting down every day, with one in 10 working on the sofa at home, there’s concern over the lack of physical movement and the long-term impact, according to new research by Enora.
