A new study found that increasing your physical activity may lower your risk of dying with dementia.

When researchers looked at the medical records of people who had died from dementia, they discovered that the majority of them were in a “low-fit” category. Those who were considered extremely fit had less than half the risk of dying with dementia, according to a news release from the American College of Sports Medicine.

The study was published in the ACSM’s journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.
