There is a direct correlation between one’s level of fitness and hypertension or high blood pressure. One effective means to ward off hypertension is to increase the intensity of exercise.  Keep in mind that physical activity doesn’t necessarily lead to fitness. Activity will help prevent hypertension but only when the activity is intense will you see a significant decrease in blood pressure. Studies show that people who walk at a moderate pace have a 90% increase in the odds of successful aging. However, when kicked up to a brisk or very brisk pace, the odds increased three fold! Physical activity is a good prognostication of health status, but pace and intensity provides far better odds of successful aging. Exercise is often presented as a “no sweat” proposition with little effort that will produce great benefits. While it’s true that a little exercise is better than none at all, it's only the beginning. Develop a regular exercise routine. Begin slowly and increase intensity as your fitness improves. And don’t forget to talk to your doctor to avoid over doing it.
