  • Improve immune and digestive function
  • Better blood pressure
  • Increased bone density
  • Lower risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis and certain cancers
  • Enhanced mobility, flexibility, and balance for less falls and injury.

Mental Benefits of Exercise:

  • Improved sleep
  • Boosts mood and self-confidence
  • Improves brain function and may help prevent memory loss, cognitive decline, and dementia.

Remember, it is NEVER too late to get started!
