Fitness Expert Lorna Kleidman Responds to Study Claiming Exercise Can Decrease Risk of Dementia
Date:2/22/2013

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

On February 22, fitness expert and world champion in the sport of kettlebells, Lorna Kleidman, responds to a reported study that establishes a link between dementia and being out of shape.

According to a recent article published on CBS News, an observational study from researchers at the Cooper Institute in Dallas claims that “middle-aged adults who were in shape were significantly less likely to develop dementia or Alzheimer's disease by the time they reached 65 compared to their unfit counterparts.”

The findings are based on the medical records of 19,000 people. Participants were tested on a treadmill periodically between 1971 and 2009. These records were compared with the group's current Medicare records to determine how many of them had developed symptoms of dementia.

Each of the 19,000 people in the study were classified into two groups – least fit and most fit – based on the amount of time they were able to spend on the treadmill. A total of 1,600 people in the study were diagnosed with dementia. According to the article, researchers found that those who were classified as “most fit” were 40 percent less likely to develop dementia.

Dementia currently has no known cure, reports the article. About 5.3 Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s, and medical experts believe that number will double by 2050. “Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading U.S. cause of death, killing almost 84,000 Americans each year,” the article added.

Lorna Kleidman, a fitness expert that specializes in kettlebell training, responds to the research, saying that the findings represent yet another great reason to get yourself in the gym and stay fit.
