In brief: Get back in shape!

You should always maintain regular health maintenance checks to stay healthy, whether you retire or not.
Getting in shape and exercising is also the single most effective health improvement technique there is!

In brief: Physical exam

Absolutely. Always a good idea to have a complete physical prior to getting into shape especially if you are older.
