Abstract: In this dissertation, the physiological changes that are taking place in a middle aged individual are discussed. These include changes in the musculosceletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, immune and central nervous system. The benefits of regular physical exercise in the latter systems are discussed. Benefits are observed in all systems. A section regarding the benefits of regular physical exercise in the psychological domain is also included. Such benefits include reducing depression, anxiety and stress, and enhancing mood state and well-being. Reasons for non-participation in regular exercise programs are also discussed. A study is carried out on one hundred and thirty-seven Maltese males aged fifty. From the results, one concludes that the leading lifestyle is an active one and that the more active the occupation of a person, the less he will engage in regular exercise programs. Results also show that there is a much greater percentage number of males who participate regularly in exercise programs. Finally, recommendations are given to encourage the increase of participants in regular exercise programs.
