I don't think I agree entirely about growing lazy as we get older and that is why seniors and elderly don't exercise. I think it has a lot to do with their physical condition, for example some have bad knees, some bad backs and hips, and some have balance problems. If some of them were just to stoop over to pick up a ball they might fall down.

For many seniors the most exercise they obtain is getting into the car, getting out of the car, and walking into a restaurant, then back to the car again and when there is a handicap placard those steps are few. There is something about the previous generation viewing work as exercise, they just never really got into as a group, or a class, that type of thing wasn't available when they were growing up.
