The benefits of exercise
Exercise is essential to our overall well-being and self-confidence. The benefits of exercise include, but are not limited to:
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Improved balance
- Improved cardiovascular health
Strength training plays an important role in maintaining muscle mass, bone density and posture. Equally important are flexibility and balance, essential to performing daily activities. Cardiovascular training can lead to improved heart and lung function, as well as weight management. All these benefits contribute to appropriate levels of blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.
