The benefits to exercising are far more than just losing weight and gaining muscles. There are so many health benefits as well. There is a lot of scientific research that shows regular physical activity greatly improves your overall health. One of the biggest benefits is preventing heart disease and stroke. Even just walking is better than no exercise. Exercising also helps the risk with diabetes and helps reduce some cancers. It also helps strengthen bones, muscles, and metal health.
“The bottom line is - the health benefits of physical activity far outweigh the risks of getting hurt.”
“Science shows that physical activity can reduce your risk of dying early from the leading causes of death, like heart disease and some cancers. This is remarkable in two ways:
Only a few lifestyle choices have as large an impact on your health as physical activity. People who are physically active for about 7 hours a week have a 40 percent lower risk of dying early than those who are active for less than 30 minutes a week.
You don't have to do high amounts of activity or vigorous-intensity activity to reduce your risk of premature death. You can put yourself at lower risk of dying early by doing at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity.”
