Endurance exercises like indoor cycling can make us look youngerThis explains everything* 🙂

A new study from Tel Aviv University has found that 'endurance exercises,' like a Central Park jog or a spinning class, can make us look younger.

The key, exercise, unlocks the stem cells of our muscles.

Prof. Dafna Benayahu and her team at Tel Aviv University's Sackler School of Medicine say their findings explain for the first time why older people who have exercised throughout their lives age more gracefully.

They have discovered how endurance exercise increases the number of muscle stem cells and enhances their ability to rejuvenate old muscles.

The researchers hope their finding can lead to a new drug to help the elderly and immobilized heal their muscles faster.

*It is my contention, no mater what the stated reason given, the number one reason people come to your class is so they will feel that they look better. It may be beneficial to remember this when you communicate the benefits to your class.
