Aerobic Benefits


Reduce those unwanted pounds
Combined with a healthy diet, aerobic exercise helps us to lose weight — and keep it off.

Improve our immune system
Aerobic exercise activates our immune system. This means that we will be less likely to pick up viral illnesses, like colds and flu.

Reduce our health risks
Aerobic exercise reduces the risk of many conditions, including obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, stroke and certain types of cancer.

Manage long term health challenges
Aerobic exercise helps lower high blood pressure and control blood sugar. If you’ve had a heart attack, aerobic exercise helps prevent subsequent attacks.

Strengthen our heart
A stronger heart doesn’t need to beat as fast. A stronger heart also pumps blood more efficiently, which improves blood flow to all parts of our body.

Improve our mood
Aerobic exercise can ease the gloominess of depression, reduce the tension associated with anxiety and promote relaxation and well being.

Keep us active and independent as we get older
Aerobic exercise keeps our muscles strong, which can help us maintain mobility as we get older. Aerobic exercise also keeps our mind sharp. According to research, at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three days a week seems to reduce cognitive decline in older adults.

Help us to Live longer
Studies show that people who participate in regular aerobic exercise live longer than those who don’t exercise regularly.
