Exercise obviously makes us fitter, leaner, have more muscle fibres and makes us stronger.
These are the obvious benefits that are generally visible and act as a benchmark for improvement.
What we sometimes don't see is some of the additional other benefits that stem from exercising.
These additional benefits include:
Exercise is great for your brain which improves your memory, and is linked to reduced depression and quicker learning habits.
It may make you age slower by slowing down the aging of muscle cells.
It'll make your skin look better by increasing oxygen flow to the skin.
It can help you recover from a major illness by improving cardiovascular fitness and muscle mass.
Exercise shrinks fat calls and trains your body to become a better burner of fat.
