From leg warmers and aerobics of the 70s and 80s to gym memberships and active lifestyles today, the Baby Boomer generation isn’t ready to let their health slip away.

An older study conducted by the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association, found that older adults are hitting the gym in record numbers – the number of gym members over the age of 55 grew by 343% from 1987 to 2003, and continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of gym membership.

That translates to a lot of time spent in the gym trying to get healthier, and subsequently look younger. What some men are finding though, is that after they head out of the gym, the veins on their legs appear more prominent. Somewhat implausibly, their efforts at looking better from head to toe are ending somewhere around the legs. While exercise doesn’t cause varicose veins, it can exaggerate their appearance.

Now, exercising isn’t all about looking slimmer or fitter, and varicose veins are not just a cosmetic problem, but many of these fit grandpas are opting for varicose vein removal so that their legs look just as fit, healthy and sexy as the rest of their body.
