If you are 55 or older, it is quite possible that you already possess one or more diseases or conditions that are likely to decrease your ability to live your life to its fullest. Conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, respiratory disease and high blood pressure that are familiar to many seniors do not have to prevent you from living a healthy and fulfilling life.

A program that has been helping folks improve their fitness and health for over 30 years is Fusion One. It is a “natural” and holistic health program that is safe, simple and effective. Since its creation in the late 70s, the program has addressed the health needs of thousands without deliberately or carelessly harming anyone. This fact is consistent with a guiding principle of the program. This principle simply states that “good health can, and should be had without harm or injury to those seeking it.”

The “user friendliness” and effectiveness of Fusion One are reflected in the vast number of its practitioners who remain with the program for years. In addition, the number of people who are practicing Fusion One is increasing at an enormous rate. The popularity of the program is due to a number of factors. The principal ones are, again, the simplicity and ease of performing its exercises and the tremendous benefits that are quickly had through their practice.

In a general way, Fusion One will assist in preventing certain illnesses. Furthermore, its practice will help to slow the aging process, improve the circulation of the blood, tone muscles, relax tensed nerves, strengthen muscles and bones, improve coordination and balance, focus the mind and foster deep relaxation. In more specific ways, Fusion One provides the following benefits:

• It improves breathing and combats respiratory problems

• It increases flexibility

• It improves balance and helps prevent falling

We also know that a portion of the exercises are performed while sitting and that the exercises can be practiced at any time, require little space and make use of no expensive, bulky or complicated equipment.
