About weight loss and benefits 

Getting in condition means improving your whole body fitness. Some exercises strengthen your muscles (e.g., weight lifting, horseback riding) while others improve your flexibility (e.g., yoga). “Aerobic” exercise improves your body’s endurance by helping your heart, blood vessels and lungs work more effectively. Exercises that are aerobic are those in which your muscles use oxygen to function – these exercises are also the ones that make you breathe faster, sweat, and feel your heart pound.

Knowing what you want out of exercise may get you motivated to begin. Some benefits of exercising include:

  1. More energy
  2. Improved self-image
  3. Weight control without dieting
  4. Control over appetite
