The health benefits of regular exercise have been well documented. And these benefits are available to everyone regardless of your age, sex or physical ability.
Exercise can help prevent weight gain or help you lose weight. The more vigorous the activity, the more calories you will burn.
Physical activity can help you feel more relaxed and in a better frame of mind. A 30-minute walk after a stressful day at the office can help improve your mood.
Regular exercise can boost your endurance. It can also increase your strength. Physical activity delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your heart and lungs work more efficiently.
A regular fitness routine also helps with diabetes management, reduces diabetes complications, and can halt the progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes.
