Need help fitting exercise into your day? Hospital program can help | Health
The benefits of exercise go far beyond a better-fitting pair of jeans. A well-rounded exercise regimen can aid in the prevention and treatment of a number of ailments, including high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes, and is beneficial to your overall health and well-being. Throughout the year, you are encouraged to talk to your physician about what exercise can do to improve your overall health or combat a specific problem.
