The benefits of exercise and regular physical activity are well known, and all people, regardless of age, sex or physical ability can notice its benefits. Exercise can prevent weight gain and help prevent many health problems, such as heart attacks, metabolic syndrome, type-2 diabetes, depression, various cancers, and arthritis.
Exercise releases oxygen and nutrients to tissues and helps the cardiovascular system work more efficiently. When the heart and lungs are healthier, the body has more energy.
Some people experience the benefits of exercise more quickly than others, but may also require dietary changes. People with certain genetic variants experience rapid results, such as lower cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure.
