Prevent illnesses and diseases
Regular exercise has been linked to a reduced risk or delayed development of many illnesses and diseases, as well as providing benefits for those with chronic conditions, including:

Joint and muscle pain
Type 2 diabetes
Alzheimer’s
Lung cancer
Colon cancer
Osteoporosis
Arthritis
High blood pressure
Breast cancer
Cholesterol
Studies found that those who are fit are more likely to live longer and delay the onset of illnesses, with the most aerobically fit people typically developing chronic conditions in only the last five years of their life rather than the last 10, 15, or 20 years.

Exercise can help with some of the symptoms of chronic conditions or conditions associated with ageing. These include:
Menopause symptoms
Joint pain
Weight gain
Lowered immune function
Poor digestion
