Do Gymnasts and Acrobats Die Young? – Strength Magazine – July, 1925

The writer says they do not! And I think the following account of a great number who did the most strenuous exercise along these lines will be ample proof that they live not only as long, but much longer than those who do not go in for gymnastics and similar forms of athletics. Besides, they look much younger, and are a great deal more -active both mentally and physically in their advanced age, and it has been proven many times that they posses’s greater health than those in any other walk of life.
