Exercise, in all of its various modes, has been the topic of numerous scientific studies and tests for over one hundred years. Recent research has targeted in on the beneficial aspects of consistent physical exercise. This research has identified physical exercise as being responsible for increasing the potential for a healthier life by alleviating many of common health problems in our society. Health problems such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure, and diabetes are well known issues that can be life altering if left unattended. By participating in a daily exercise program, the effects of these diseases may be decreased or possibly even avoided. These changes begin to show up within several weeks, with just a few minutes a day.
