Is it worth starting aerobic training in your 60s?

Adapting to Aerobic Exercise

It's never too late to start exercise, though if you are older or deconditioned, you have to start more slowly. There are people running marathons in their 70s and 80s who didn't even start running until they were in their 60s. You don't have to be a marathoner to get benefits such as weight control, lower blood pressure, and improved lipid profile. The important thing is to find an exercise, or exercises, you like to do, and do it consistently.
