Older or younger, you already know you should be working out more.

But now, a new study suggests that getting more fit might also reduce the risk of death for elderly men with high blood pressure.

Compared to the least-fit men, those who had the highest levels of fitness had nearly half the risk of death. For men in the low-fitness category, the risk of dying was 18 percent lower. And, men in the moderate-fitness category had a 36 percent lower death risk, according to the study.
