Preview: Never too late: getting fit in your 50s and beyond

 | 

Even in your 50s, 60s and beyond -- even if you are seriously overweight, have already developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes; even if you've indulged in a steady diet of bad habits or have never set foot in a gym or walked farther than where you parked your car, it's not too late.

With regular exercise, such as dancing, swimming or hitting the gym, you can still become stronger, healthier and more energetic while slowing the effects of aging.
