What happens to your body when you stop exercising ??

Exercise !! who needs it ? Actually, we all do.

Whether it be physical or mental exercises, our bodies react in a positive rewarding and powerful manner.

There are a lot of positive benefits of doing physical exercise; easier breathing, healthier skin, more energy, improved health, feel good feeling, amongst the few.

Not all of us like to get out and do it. With all the excuses out there not to do, we are putting our lives at risk.

Obesity is one of the worlds biggest problems.

Obesity is more than just being overweight. People are considered to be obese if they have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater.

What does retirement mean to you?

Will it be when you have worked your fingers to the bone, having saved as much money as possible to fulfill your ‘bucket list’ of dreams?
