Our San Jose Personal Trainers Reveal the Link Between Longer Telomeres and Aging


Want our San Jose personal fitness trainers’ BEST anti-aging tip?


Stay active.


We know it might not be what you want to hear, but it’s a cold, hard fact that physical exercise can slow down aging.


Have you heard of “telomeres” before? 


They’re the protective “end caps” on each side of our chromosomes… kind of like the little caps on the ends of your shoelaces.


They get shorter as we age.


BUT… when scientists examined the telomere length in more than 5,800 adults who were part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey…


They found something REALLY interesting…


Active people had longer telomeres than those who weren’t as active — even after accounting for other factors like their lifestyle and actual age!


That means that at a cellular level, the active people looked younger.


Pretty incredible, right?


And what a huge motivator to get — and stay — active! 


As you might guess, this is a major area of research right now, and all the specifics of what kind of exercise — and how much exercise — you need to get the most benefit are still being studied.


But here’s a great starting point: Follow CDC and AHA guidelines:

  • 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio (or 75 minutes of high-intensity). That equals about 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 
  • At least 2 days of strength training. 


And when you’re ready for more?
