Exercise Sparks New Life in Aging Adults
Rutgers Center for Exercise and Aging celebrates 15 years of bringing students and seniors together in a quest for better health
For Ruth Gottlieb, 82, and Jean Timper, 85, and members at the East Brunswick Senior Center, exercise is the high point of their day. What gets them most excited? Line dancing.
"I even dance around the house. When I'm vacuuming or cooking, I just stop and dance around and stretch. I like to be flexible," says Gottlieb, a former teacher who says her only regular exercise before retirement was running after students.
