Just in case you don’t believe me about exercise being good for you:
“Cross -sectional, retrospective, prospective, and interventional epidemiologic research, including studies of enforced inactivity, provide strong evidence that regular exercise reduces type 2 diabetes risk in adolescents and adults.” 1
Reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes is just one of the benefits of regular exercise. I promise, there are plenty more.
