After I broke my leg in 1998, I read some research which indicated that weight training slows and perhaps even reverses bone loss in adults. Upon reflection, I realized that in focusing on work and family, I had been neglecting my physical fitness. So, I started a regular weight training regimen in the UMBC RAC and I have continued it for 10 years now. I soon discovered that this exercise program contributed to my overall health, kept my weight down and made me feel more energetic. And, I've not broken any more bones. The key to getting enough exercise, at least for me, has been to be sure to set aside time for it on a regular schedule.
