The benefits of regular physical exercise are remarkable. Exercise has the ability to add years to your life and life to your years. There are countless numbers of studies showing that exercise can:

  • Extend Life: Exercise even at low to moderate levels of intensity can extend your life by up to 4 years.
  • Prevent Type 2 Diabetes: Moderate exercise can prevent type 2 diabetes by improving the ability of your body to utilize glucose. Exercise also helps to maintain correct body weight, decreasing the risk of developing diabetes.
  • Alleviate Depression: Exercise can alleviate depression by stimulating the production of specific mood elevating neurotransmitters in the brain.
  • Keep Bones Strong: Exercise, especially weight training, increases muscle mass which is important in keeping bones strong and preventing osteoporosis.
  • Increase Testosterone Levels: Exercise is a natural way to boost testosterone levels in both males and females. Testosterone is important in maintaining muscle mass and therefore strong bones. It also helps boost the immune system’s effectiveness in preventing colds, infections, and even cancer.
  • Improve Balance: Good balance is required to prevent falls and associated injuries from falling. Every year, two million Americans visit the emergency room due to injuries sustained in falls. Balance is also an important factor in almost every sport. Exercise improves balance in many ways. For example, exercise can strengthen the core stabilization muscles like the abdominals and back extensors by stimulating brain areas involved in proprioception.
  • Maintain Proper Body Weight: Exercising burns calories and increases muscle mass, thereby helping to maintain a proper body weight.
  • Increase Energy Levels: During exercise, you are training your heart, lungs, and muscles to work more efficiently. When the body acts more efficiently, it requires less energy to function, leaving you with more energy to spend on other daily activities. Also, exercise is a natural way to get a quick boost of energy by increasing blood flow to your vital organs and brain.
  • Improve Sleep: Exercise is great at balancing your neurotransmitters including those involved in sleeping. As long as you do not exercise too close to bedtime, physical activity can improve the quality of your sleep and help you fall asleep faster.
