Fitness and physical activity can be extremely powerful weapons against the development of heart disease.
Those who live sedentary lifestyles are vulnerable to harmful cardiovascular conditions like heart attack and stroke, because of their inability to:
- Maintain healthy weight
- Keep cholesterol levels low
- Stabilize blood pressure.
Exercising allows your body to become more efficient in its ability to extract oxygen from your blood, which protects your heart from exhaust and strain.
