It depends: Everyone generally ages at a similar rate until they reach their late twenties or mid-thirties. Unless you've inherited a rare genetic disorder or have been in an accident, at thirty you're probably basically healthy and able. Men reach the peak of their performance curve in their late twenties; women, in their mid-thirties. At that point our bodies have fully matured, and we are at our strongest.
