RESEARCH: Exercise Improves Cognition, Fitness, Endurance, Balance Of Subjects Over 60

(8-18) A recent study looked at the effect of exercise training on cognition, fitness, muscle endurance, and balance of subjects over 60 with mild cognitive impairment. The study used a randomized, controlled protocol (RCT), considered to be the "gold standard" for such research.

The authors concluded that the (very moderate) exercise training program "improved cognitive function, muscle endurance, aerobic conditioning, and balance in older adults with mild cognitive impairment."
