Health of the baby boomer generation – Fitness League

England’s Chief Medical Officer has published a report on the health of adults aged 50-70, also known as the ‘baby boomers’. In 2014, 8% of the total population in England were aged 75 and over, this number is expected to rise to 13.1% by 2039.

While this generation benefits from advances made in life expectancy and mortality reduction, there are several opportunities for health improvement. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity and tobacco consumption, modifiable risk factors such as obesity and overweight are all relevant considerations.

Data on the lifestyles of this generation are presented in the report revealing that physical activity levels were low in this generation, and they are less active than those of the same age ten years ago.
