Regular physical activity is good for everyone's health, and people of all ages and
body types can be physically active. National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is a
great time to spread the word about the benefits of getting active.
Here are just a few benefits of physical activity:
• Children and adolescents – Physical activity can improve muscular fitness,
bone health, and heart health.
• Adults – Physical activity can lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes,
and some types of cancer.
• Older adults – Physical activity can lower the risk of falls and improve cognitive
functioning (like learning and judgment skills).
