Elderly international health insurance customers might want to discuss fitness with their GP after recent research has suggested that it can improve people's mental well being.
Conducted by UCLA, the study found that depressed elderly adults who attended a weekly tai chi exercise class and standard depression treatments showed a greater level of improvement in their level of depression.
But in addition to this, in comparison to people who only followed standard treatment, the group had improved quality of life, memory cognition and energy levels.
Following the study, Alan Gordon, the highest qualified personal trainer in the UK, said that squats are a particularly useful exercise for older people.
This is because they can improve their balance by doing squats since they will strengthen their leg, back and hip muscles.
However, Mr Gordon urged people to contact their GP before embarking on any new forms of exercise.
