"Exercise is good for our health": since childhood we have been continuously reminded of this fact, but how many of us put it into practice?

Did you know that regular physical activity decreases your mortality? It prevents cardiovascular diseases, obesity, breast and colon cancer, it helps keep your bones strong, increases muscular tone, contributes to good mental wellbeing and helps control weight gain.

Did you know that exercise releases the natural endorphins in the brain that help prevent and improve depression? It is a natural antidepressant that can help improve your quality of life.

Did you also know that exercise is used as a treatment for diabetes, raised cholesterol and for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation?

In the forthcoming articles we are going to try to convince you to take regular exercise, taking into account the contraindications specific to each person.
