• as people age, they become unable to control their cardiorespiratory fitness levels.

  • Answers
  • This is due to a combination of factors, including reduced muscle mass, increased joint and ligament stiffness, decreased flexibility, diminished cardiovascular output, and changes in hormone levels. As the body ages, it becomes less capable of maintaining healthy aerobic metabolism, leading to a decrease in physical activity, strength, and endurance, ultimately resulting in a decline in cardiorespiratory fitness. A decrease in cardiorespiratory fitness can increase the risk for chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. To maintain cardiorespiratory fitness, older adults should engage in regular physical activity, such as walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling. Additionally, older adults should adopt healthy lifestyle habits, such as eating a balanced diet and avoiding inactivity.
