Los Angeles, CA Walking, running, and kickboxingare fantastic exercises to improve cardiovascular fitness.

Further research showedthat Alzheimer’s patients were able to recall memories whenpresented with music and dance moves from their younger years.The AARP released a statement in 2005 encouraging dance as aform of cardiovascular exercise for people of all ages, stating that theability to vary the intensity and physical exertion made it a fun anexciting exercise that improved coordination and cognition at thesame time.
