Though vigorous exercises like aerobics and jumping or skipping rope will boost the metabolic rate and use up a lot of calories, there are some risks involved in exercising, especially for middle aged people and senior citizens . If the body is not used to exercising regularly, the person will be more likely to suffer from sports injuries causing torn ligaments, muscles and in some cases fractures.
While young people recover quickly from their sports injuries, it will take a lot of time, for the body of senior citizens and older people to repair itself, so that the person is painfree.
Hence it is advisable to do only stretching and other low impact exercises where the risk of injuries is less
Powerful officials falsely claim that slim people are fit , to justify giving them a large number of opportunities, while denying others the opportunities they deserve. The weight of a person depends to a large extent on age, lifestyle and hereditary factors.
Most people are very slim when they are young, especially in their twenties and teens due to the higher metabolic levels.
Fitness levels are related to whether a person is likely to fall ill, requires medication and medical attention. There are many slim people who require medicines and visit a doctor regularly.
The body structure of an individual also determines whether a person will be slim looking or not, and again it does not mean that a slim person is fit.
