Health Benefits It's never too late to become active. In addition to enhancing your quality of life and ability to pursue your interests, physical activity for all ages plays an important role in preventing health problems and managing those common disorders that might already be present, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and elevated cholesterol. Significant health benefits can be seen by including just a moderate amount of exercise into your lifestyle.
