CAQIT® Walking Is Good For Senior Fitness

Keep the joy in your lifeGood grip and good balance are good things, especially if you're over 50 years of age. As you age you naturally lose muscle strength due to sarcopenia. Lose too much muscle strength and you can also lose balance falling into a broken hip that can take the joy out of life.
