  1. 1. CHAPTER 15 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1) Define: physiological age, functional capacity, chronological age, & life expectancy. 2) How does regular physical activity affect chronological age versus physiological age? 3) What is the greatest benefit of a lifetime wellness lifestyle? 4) Age Prediction Questionnaire. 5) What is CAM? 6) Explain the 5 categories of CAM therapies.
  2. 2. PHYSIOLOGICAL AGE -”THE BIOLOGICAL & FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY OF THE BODY IN RELATION TO THE PERSON’S MAXIMAL POTENTIAL AT ANY GIVEN AGE IN THE LIFESPAN.” -AGE IS JUDGED IN TERMS OF PHYSIOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT. -BASED ON HOW SOMEONE LOOKS OR FUNCTIONS. -THE HEALTHY & UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE ACTIONS THAT YOU TAKE TODAY WILL HAVE AN EFFECT ON HEALTH & QUALITY OF LIFE IN MIDDLE & ADVANCED AGE.
  3. 3. CHRONOLOGICAL AGE -”CALENDAR AGE.” -THE DURATION, OR MEASURE OF TIME, OF THE EXISTENCE OF A PERSON. -DETERMINED BY COUNTING FORWARD FROM BIRTH.
  4. 4. HOW DOES REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AFFECT CHRONOLOGICAL AGE VERSUS PHYSIOLOGICAL AGE? -INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE TAKEN PART IN SYSTEMATIC PHYSICAL ACTIVITY THROUGHOUT LIFE MAINTAIN A HIGHER LEVEL OF FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY & DO NOT EXPERIENCE THE DECLINES TYPICAL IN LATER YEARS. -SEDENTARY PEOPLE IN THE U.S. ARE ABOUT 25 YEARS OLDER THAN THEIR CHRONOLOGICAL AGE INDICATES. -AN ACTIVE 60 YEAR OLD CAN HAVE A PHYSICAL CAPACITY SIMILAR TO A SEDENTARY 35 YEAR OLD. -A SEDENTARY 20 YEAR OLD CAN HAVE A PHYSICAL CAPACITY OF AN ACTIVE 45 YEAR OLD.
  5. 5. FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY -”THE ABILITY TO PERFORM THE ORDINARY & UNUSUAL DEMANDS OF DAILY LIVING WITHOUT LIMITATIONS, EXCESSIVE FATIGUE, OR INJURY. -GOOD PHYSICAL FITNESS & PROPER NUTRITION PROVIDES FREEDOM TO ENJOY LIFE’S RECREATIONAL & LEISURE ACTIVITIES WITHOUT LIMITATIONS.
  6. 6. LIFE EXPECTANCY -”HOW MANY YEARS A PERSON IS EXPECTED TO LIVE.”
  7. 7. WHAT IS THE GREATEST BENEFIT OF A LIFETIME WELLNESS LIFESTYLE? -AN OPTIMUM QUALITY OF LIFE. ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: -GREATER FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY -GOOD HEALTH -LESS SICKNESS -LOWER HEALTH CARE EXPENSES -LESS TIME UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION
  8. 8. ACTIVITITY 15.1: AGE PREDICTION QUESTIONNAIRE -ASSESSES 46 CRITICAL GENETIC & LIFESTYLE FACTORS. -MOST OF THE FACTORS ARE UNDER OUR CONTROL & WE CAN DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THEM WORK FOR US INSTEAD OF AGAINST US. -PREDICTS LIFE EXPECTANCY & PHYSIOLOGICAL AGE BASED ON PRESENT LIFESTYLE HABITS, SHOULD YOU CONTINUE THOSE HABITS FOR LIFE.
