This article is written for those of you out there who think that exercise is a four-letter word! You have either had a bad experience which made it painful, you think that it takes too much of your time, or you just plain don’t like it. It’s exciting to me that you are reading this article to learn more about just how critical exercise is as it relates to your health and longevity. Is there anyone reading this article today who doesn’t want to live longer and at a higher quality of life? I didn’t think so, but I was just making sure that I was writing this for the proper group of people!
There is so much information out there about exercise that it can often be overwhelming. Some of it is good information, but somehow we have made it more complicated than it needs to be. I would like to begin by spending some time laying the groundwork for the importance of exercise. The benefits of exercise are detailed in the latest available research on the subject. More importantly, I want to break it down for you so that you can use this information immediately in your everyday life. What benefit is information that is left without being put to good use- it’s virtually useless isn’t it? I don’t want that to be the case for any of you reading this article.
