You can’t stop time, but you can slow down the internal aging process of your body’s cells by exercising regularly.

He found that highly active women who jog for 30 minutes per day (40 minutes for men) on five days every week are – biologically speaking – seven years younger than those with only a moderately active lifestyle, while having a nine-year biological age advantage over their entirely sedentary counterparts .
