Reduce Chances of you Getting Dementia
Studies have shown that staying active (taking part in a certain physical exercise) helps in boosting mind energy and functioning thus decreasing the risk of having dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, physical exercise/activity “improves cognitive function in healthy elderly persons, and potentially reduces the risk of developing cognitive impairment.”
Reduces The Risk of Getting Osteoporosis
Physical exercise is very important for the health of the bone, especially exercises which involve load bearing. According to Leigh Crews, a professional certified trainer "Exercise can be one of the most important things you can do to prevent osteoporosis, protect yourself from falls and help maintain bone mass."

A study conducted by the Harvard School of Public health revealed that a 20 minute workout on a day to day basis helps in improving response in women. In addition to keeping you fit exercising also makes you feel more desirable. David Katz, an MD at Yale’s University Prevention and Research center , says that, “Since exercise can improve health, vitality, appearance and self-esteem, it does indeed tend to increase interest in—and capacity for—sexual activity.”
