I am a huge proponent of exercise, and it's never too late to start. Anything you do in the way of aerobic exercise or weight bearing exercise will make a significant difference in your overall general health and mobility. Dozens of studies have been made with participants in their 80's, and after 4-6 weeks of minimal exercise, all reported better mobility and over all general health. 

I have a buddy that was using a CPAP and was on diabetic and blood pressure meds. He got mad, changed his diet and started a regular exercise program. Not excessive, just regular.  When I saw him again he had lost 50 pounds, and his doctor had just taken him off of the meds.  He quit the CPAP 2 months prior. He will be 70 in a few months, and feels way better than he had in years.  I am a believer.
