    The Many Benefits of Exercise

    Everyone can benefit from regular exercise. Kids who are active will:

    • have stronger muscles and bones 
    • have a leaner body because exercise helps control body fat
    • be less likely to become overweight 
    • decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
    • possibly lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
    • have a better outlook on life
    Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges — from running to catch a bus to studying for a test.
