These days there is hardly any doubt that some level of strength training is beneficial and the older we are, the greater the benefit. As we age, there is a decline in many areas such as strength or mobility and even motivation. Strength training minimizes those negative effects. The trick then, it seems to me is to devise tactics that provide motivation which could be going to a gym for the exercise and social aspects or something else. For me, it has become a matter of habit to do some exercise every morning consisting of stretching and for strength. But each individual has to find their own motivation.
