I'm 39.

Dude, there is just NO excuse, sorry Svenno....

Yeah, I'm also gonna be 38 and in better shape than I was at 25. Age truly is, just a number.

There are 72 year olds that physically can out perform me.

Sure.  People can be fit at any age. But, it is definitely true that the human body changes as it ages.  Improvements become harder to make, negatives happen on their own.   Denying that fact is a recipe for disaster.  Injuries happen to all athletes (all humans, really), but they are more frequent (under the same conditions) and recovery is slower when we're older.  That *must* be taken into consideration if one wants to keep their body working reasonably well for 80+ years.
