All About Exercise

Exercise… What Is It?

Exercise is a form of physical activity that involves the person to move, stretch or exert some type of physical force to expend energy. Exercise is usually used to help increase performance, mobility and flexibility depending on the task at hand. Exercise can also be referred to as training where the main goal is to focus on an area of weakness and slowly improve it overtime for long term change. This may involve things such as cardiovascular health, bodily strength, conditioning, weight loss or even flexibility.
